Monster Roar of 2023 Cadillac Escalade V-Series Will Echo Past 2035 ICE Ban

The Internal Combustion Engine will not go quietly into the night. In fact the deafening roar of the 2023 Cadillac Escalade V-Series 682 horsepower super luxe SUV will like be reverberating in well past the 2035 ban on new production ICE vehicles.

This all new $150,000 super performance 4W Drive luxe-truck SUV swarms the senses with a lust at first sight appeal that is inescapable. From the outside this Raven Black beauty and beast is imposing in the way Darth Vader commands attention with his furling cape and blacked out helmeted visage.

Sitting high astride 18 spoke 22 inch wheels and an adaptive Air Ride, 4W Drive suspension, magnetic ride control and electronic slip differential, this rig conjures images of off-road bogging … like mud wrestling in a tuxedo or a designer gown.

The fearsome Cadillac Blackwing based 6.2 liter V8, with a 10 speed auto trans, propels this 6,217 lb SUV from 0 – 60 in 4.4 seconds.

Inside the regal interior appointments and tech layout and presentation seem ready to transition to the EV future … but not before one last gasp of this glorious excess under the hood.
