Escalade V- What Took Them So Long?
It's about time.

A Cadillac Escalade V is coming.

Big V-8. Throaty rumble. All-American opulence.

It's all in the 2023 Cadillac Escalade V. Since we've been waiting 20 years for one, another two years is a piece of cake.

GMAuthority, who reported this news, says, "Both the Escalade-V and Escalade-V ESV will be powered by the supercharged 6.2L V8 LT4 gasoline engine, which is also used in the Chevy Camaro ZL1, C7 Corvette Z06, third-gen Cadillac CTS-V, and the upcoming Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing."

Expect horsepower to be be 650 plus horsepower, and if GM wants to take on the one-year Durango Hellcat, it will need to find 710 horsepower in that supercharged LS-based small-block.

Over at, they're giving away a 2018 Cadillac CTS-V with the same V-series LT4 engine. Get your entries at
