2025 Cadillac Escalade IQ goes official with MSRP USD 130,000

9 August 2023, 13:09:06

2025 Cadillac Escalade IQ goes official with MSRP USD 130,0002025 Cadillac Escalade IQ has been just introduced as promised. The first-ever all-electric full-size SUV from Cadillac redefines the luxury SUV experience with a Cadillac-estimated 450 miles of range, available Super Cruise driver assistance technology, bidirectional charging capability, reimagined interior with a curved pillar-to-pillar 55-inch total diagonal LED display, enticing exterior, and zero tailpipe emissions. The model has four trim levels: A 24-module Ultium battery serves as the foundation of the ESCALADE IQ, producing more than 200 kWh of available energy. It also employs a flexible, high-voltage architecture that enables 800-volt DC fast charging, the quickest form of charging currently available, providing up to 100 miles of range in 10 minutes of charge time. The ESCALADE IQ uses its Ultium battery pack as part of its fundamental body structure.

When it comes to performance, 2025 Cadillac Escalade IQ features independent front and rear suspension, with power transferred to 24-inch wheels with 35-inch tires via front and rear drive motors that work in conjunction as an eAWD system. The powerful electric propulsion configuration delivers up to 750 hp with Velocity Max, up to 785 lb-ft of torque, and 0-60 mph in less than 5 seconds. The vehicle also delivers 8,000 pounds of towing capability.

A suite of fully integrated advanced technologies including Magnetic Ride Control 4.0 and Adaptive Air Ride Suspension isolate passengers from undesirable road surfaces while providing precise steering and feel. The Adaptive Air Ride Suspension system enables the vehicle to be lowered up to 2 inches (50 mm) and raised 1 inch (25 mm), while additional features such as the standard Four-Wheel Steer, available Cadillac Arrival Mode and Low Ride Mode enhance capability as well as the ESCALADE IQ’s presence.

Four-Wheel Steer reduces the turning diameter to only 39.4 feet (12 meters) at lower speeds and reduces the turning diameter by more than 6.5 feet for greater maneuverability in parking lots and tighter overall turning radius. It also enhances handling and stability at higher speed, particularly when trailering.

Cadillac Arrival Mode is a unique Four-Wheel Steer feature that allows the ESCALADE IQ to move diagonally, making it easier when pulling into or out of tight spaces, while making a statement. Low Ride Mode enables the ESCALADE IQ to be driven at low speeds with the suspension fully lowered.

Additionally, ESCALADE IQ offers One-Pedal Driving8 and Variable Regen on Demand to allow customers to feel more connected to their drive. Plus, Ultium Energy Recovery — an innovative heat pump thermal system — allows for energy to transfer between the battery/power electronics and the cabin, using every watt possible to optimize range and minimize the power from the high-voltage battery used for five-zone climate control.

ESCALADE IQ also features a suite of standard active safety and driver assistance11 features, with highlights including: The design of 2025 Cadillac Escalade IQ captures the bold presence of its predecessors, but its dedicated EV architecture provided the design team a blank-slate approach to its styling. ESCALADE IQ’s new design pushed the wheels farther to the corners, for a more powerful-looking and planted stance. The proportions speak to its presence and scale. Starting with a long, dynamic hood and ending with a faster-sloping roofline at the rear, all of which contributes to a sportier aesthetic.

The artful integration of lighting reinforces ESCALADE IQ’s expressive design, helping to deepen the connection between the customer and their vehicle. The ESCALADE IQ features a strong vertical light signature for both day and night, with tall front daytime running light blades and vertically oriented high/low beams. Dramatic lighting choreography at both approach and departure showcases the technical prowess of Cadillac design while also creating a unique rhythm — a dynamic symphony of light with an impressive chorus of LEDs.

In keeping with other vehicles in the Cadillac portfolio, ESCALADE IQ delineates itself with two personas: Luxury and Sport. This trim strategy enables the customer to choose a vehicle that matches their own personality and preferences. Each offers distinctive appearances, including brushed aluminum metallic finishes on areas such as the wheels and exterior moldings on Luxury, and a darkened metal finish on Sport. Customers can also select a dramatic two-tone appearance by selecting the available black-painted roof — a stunning visual contrast to the six body colors in addition to black.

Inspired by the worlds of architecture, upscale furnishings, fashion and more, 2025 Cadillac Escalade IQ is open, airy and spacious, and incorporates advanced technologies introduced on the ultra-luxury Cadillac CELESTIQ. Whether a customer chooses Luxury or Sport, both offer superior levels of premium content, meaning every owner has the same uncompromising level of technology and comfort, with four total interior theme options to choose from.

As with the exterior, the dramatic interior lighting includes customizable ambient lighting with 126 color choices, allowing the owner to curate a more personal experience. With the available illuminated trim, even the interior décor illuminates, creating a warm, inviting glow. The interior trim features delicate detailing in the daylight, with laser-etched patterns accenting the wood panels. They light up at night for a unique look and a distinctive aura.
