Cadillac’s Escalade is probably the first image that springs to mind when you think of high-end, full-size SUVs. It’s earned that by dominating the luxury SUV sales charts for a long time. Not resting on their laurels, the folks at Cadillac took their flagship SUV and added a hefty dose of horsepower. Formally named the 2023 Cadillac Escalade V-Series, this hot-rodded people mover features a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 that sends 682 hp and 653 lb-ft of torque through a 10-speed automatic transmission and a standard four-wheel-drive system. This all works together to help the three-ton luxury liner sprint to 60 mph in only 4.3 seconds.
On this episode of Quick Spin, Autoweek Executive Editor Tom Murphy climbs behind the wheel of the 2023 Cadillac Escalade-V, puts it through its paces, and guides you around this mammoth SUV while highlighting its interior and exterior features. Murphy takes you along on a live drive review and chats with host Wesley Wren about the Escalade-V and its competition. In closing the show, the two talk about Cadillac’s overall direction and what makes this ’23 Cadillac Escalade V-Series special.
