Cadillac may be in the process of preparing for an all-electric future, but its Escalade full-size SUV is still the model that helps keep the brand’s sales machine rolling. For 2023, the Escalade gets minor changes and a bump in price to $82,690 (all pricing includes destination).

The 2023 Escalade’s exterior styling carries over largely unchanged, but Cadillac has added three new color options: Radiant Red Tintcoat, Argent Silver Metallic and Dark Emerald Metallic. The interior also carries over from 2022, with the only change being the way owners find crucial information about their vehicle: Drivers can now find a copy of the owner’s manual available in the organic light-emitting diode touchscreen display.

The Escalade offers three engine choices, all of which are paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission. The base unit is a 6.2-liter V-8 that makes 420 horsepower and 460 pounds-feet of torque. An available turbo-diesel 3.0-liter inline-six makes 277 hp and 470 pounds-feet of torque. Buyers looking for more performance can opt for the range-topping Escalade-V with a 682-hp, supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 good for 653 pounds-feet of torque. Rear-wheel drive is standard on the Escalade, but buyers can opt for the four-wheel-drive system on nearly all models except the V, which comes with 4WD standard.

The 2023 Escalade comes with Cadillac’s Smart System suite of safety tech as standard equipment. That includes forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, front pedestrian braking, rear park assist, a rear-seat reminder and a safety alert seat. A 360-degree camera system is also standard, and rear cross-traffic alert is available.
