    • General Motors’ newest Cadillac Escalade will be the most powerful and expensive version of the full-size SUV ever.
    • The 2023 Cadillac Escalade-V will start at about $150,000 when it goes on sale this summer with a supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 engine that delivers 682 horsepower and 653 foot-pounds of torque.
    • Automakers have increasingly added performance variants to their lineups as a way to beef up profit margins before they transition more to electric vehicles.

    DETROIT — General Motors’ newest Cadillac Escalade will be the most powerful and expensive version of the full-size SUV ever when it goes on sale this summer, starting at about $150,000.

    The Detroit automaker unveiled the 2023 Cadillac Escalade-V on Wednesday with a supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 engine that delivers 682 horsepower and 653 foot-pounds of torque. That’s a significant performance improvement over the 420 horsepower and 460 foot-pounds of torque of the SUV’s current V-8 engine.

    “There is nothing like this in the industry,” said David Schiavone, global product manager of the Cadillac Escalade, during a media briefing. “It will be the most exclusive and expensive Escalade ever.”

    Schiavone declined to disclose how many Escalade-V models the company expects to produce a year. However, given its performance and $149,990 starting price, production will likely be low but highly profitable. The price is nearly double the Escalade entry-level model, at about $76,300.

      A blast to drive and own for those that will. Options are always good even though most don’t live with me.

        I've owned Full Size to Mid-Sized SUVs most of my adult life, and most all are Fully Loaded Boats ... and if there's anything that gets your Full Attention and Knuckles Pure White, is bringing a 5000 to 6000 lbs Vehicle to a Stop or making a Sharp Evasive Turn. Doubling the HP and Price won't help make anything of that easy ... but I guess its exhilarating.

                Higher HP than our C8's, but man, after watching that video, it seems so much slower redlining it.

                  Its like racing a large twin blown engine boat to a 300 hp bass boat, the bass boat wins every time. The Cadi would need a 1,000 HP to equal the pounds per HP. With GM pushing electric vehicles it would of made more sense to have twin electric motors achieving the 682 HP along with a standard 6.2?

                    Really nice Video and I love what they've done with the interior. I just wish GM would think outside the BOX for Exterior Designs and start designing less Square and Boxy SUVs.

                    They all start looking the same and less distinctive in design.
