General Motors just unveiled the 2025 Cadillac Escalade IQ, opening up an all-new, all-electric chapter for the iconic luxury SUV nameplate.
Highlights include streamlined styling, a tech-heavy feature list, a 55-inch infotainment screen, and 450 miles of range with 750 horsepower on tap. Production is slated to kick off next year.
Exterior of the all-new 2025 Cadillac Escalade IQ
Outside, the 2025 Cadillac Escalade IQ presents a new look that’s considerably less bulky than that of the ICE-powered Cadillac Escalade. In the corners, look for optional 24-inch wheels, while customers can also option-in a two-tone paint treatment if desired. Two trim levels will be offered, including Luxury and Sport, each of which presents unique exterior details.
Moving inside, the cabin space is dominated by a curved pillar-to-pillar 55-inch LED display. Tech features abound, including optional GM Super Cruise driver-assist available on more than 400,000 miles of roads in the U.S. and Canada.
Based on GM’s Ultium Platform, the 2025 Cadillac Escalade IQ is propelled by front- and rear-mounted drive motors that work in concert to provide an all-wheel grip. Maximum output ratings range as high as 750 horsepower and 785 pound-feet of torque, sending the SUV from a standstill to 60 mph in less than five seconds while providing up to 8,000 pounds of towing capability.
24-module, 200 kWh Ultium battery pack
All that juice comes from a 24-module, 200 kWh Ultium battery pack with 800-volt DC quick-charge capabilities, adding upwards of 100 miles of range in just 10 minutes. GM estimates 450 miles of range on a full charge. The battery also provides vehicle-to-home bidirectional charging capabilities via GM Energy’s Ultium Home products.
Suspending the new SUV is an independent layout front and rear, with Magnetic Ride Control 4.0 and Adaptive Air Ride Suspension. Thanks to the Air Ride system, the body can be lowered by as much as two inches and raised by one inch. There’s also a standard Four-Wheel Steer, allowing for a low 39.4-foot turning diameter.
The 2025 Cadillac Escalade IQ will be assembled at the GM Factory Zero plant in Detroit, Michigan, with production slated to kick off next summer. Pricing starts at $130,000, including destination freight charge.
