Some say “theater of the absurd”, others say “just what you need” – but it’s true: this is the first time we meet a “supercharged” version of the huge Cadillac Escalade SUV! It is worth noting that the new generation of Cadillac Escalade has appeared relatively recently, the car already looks quite brutal. However, in a specific V-modification, the SUV has become almost an imperial cruiser from the Star Wars.
After all, the Cadillac Escalade-V SUV features its own aerodynamic elements on the bumpers, special 22-inch wheels, 2×2 exhaust system, diffuser in the rear bumper. All this perfectly emphasizes the original design of the Cadillac Escalade. By the way, the interior of the car has changed in a similar way: expensive leather and wood, curved combined displays with a total diagonal of 38 inches, plus noticeable V-accents.
Of course, the most interesting features are hidden under the hood. Namely – a giant 6.2-liter V8 engine, which is equipped with a new compressor R2650 TVS. Thanks to the latter (and, of course, other modifications), the engine produces 682 hp power and 885 Nm of torque. Then all this is sent to a 10-speed automatic gearbox and four-wheel drive system.
However, the Cadillac Escalade-V should not be considered a simple sledgehammer that can only go straight. After all, there are special settings for air suspension (can “squat” 20 mm for fast driving), special modes for sporty driving style, and even 6-piston Brembo brakes on the front wheels.
Car sales will start in the summer of 2022, the stated price – from $150 thousand in the United States. Would you like to see such a car in Ukraine?
