There will be some changes to the all-new 2023 Cadillac Escalade. The Escalade, as a flagship model, continues to improve year after year. This SUV appears bigger than it actually is and it comes with a lot of fine leather, solid wood, and gleaming metal in the cabin. This year, the most important thing is a new digital display that dominates the dashboard.
The Escalade also provides a proven V8 engine as the standard, but Cadillac will also offer a smaller and more fuel-efficient turbodiesel for people who want to save money on gas. Whichever engine you choose, the Escalade has great performance and handling. Apparently, the new SUV will be out later this year. According to the most recent reports, the Escalade could also get some kind of electric power, too.
Cadillac Escalade Facelift
From what we know, the 2023 Cadillac Escalade will not introduce redesign. The manufacturer only tweaks the front fascia a little to make it more eye-catching. A new design has made the LED headlights a lot thinner, and the grille has a lot more space. There’s a lot to like about the big grille and beautiful hood.
The Cadillac Escalade has stayed pretty much the same over the years, with the same tailgate, taillights, and rims. It’s not surprising, because everything about this SUV looks so premium and modern. As before, this model is still one of the body-on-frame SUVs that offer a lot of luxury.
The next 2023 Cadillac Escalade is the brand’s most important SUV, and it has a roomy and luxurious cabin. This model has a lot of nice features inside, and even more so in the higher trims. The new dashboard is made up of three curved OLED panels that together make up 38 inches of screen real estate. The screens look a lot like the huge monolithic infotainment system found in the Mercedes-Benz GLS-class model.
On top of that, there is a navigation system, as well as a rear-seat entertainment package with two 12.6-inch screens. As a bonus, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto and a Wi-Fi hotspot are also on offer. There are 19 speakers in the Luxury, Sport, and Premium Luxury trim levels. The Platinum trim level has 36 AKG speakers, which is astonishing.
The forthcoming 2023 Cadillac Escalade will come with two different powertrains. In addition, an all-electric model is also in the works, according to the most recent reports. The basic engine is a 6.2-liter V8 gasoline engine that makes 420 horsepower. The manufacturer also makes a 3.0-liter turbodiesel with a 10-speed automatic transmission that can be bought.
The diesel powertrain comes with higher fuel efficiency and more torque. You will be able to choose between rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive systems, depending on your needs. The Escalade with the V8 engine took 5.9 seconds to go from 0 to 60 mph, which is a good time for such a large SUV.
2023 Cadillac Escalade Coming Out This Fall
The upcoming 2023 Escalade will be on the market this fall. As we said before, the new model will get some updates for 2023, but nothing major. Models like the Chevy Tahoe, on the other hand, will be built on new underpinnings and have a much smoother ride. We think the new Escalade will start at around $78,000. More details will be available in the coming weeks.
