The Cadillac Escalade needs no introduction as the model defines the brand and their take on American luxury. In the ever-evolving landscape of automotive innovation, GM luxury brand unveiled its upcoming, all-electric version of the Escalade the 2025 Cadillac Escalade IQ seamlessly blending luxury with cutting-edge intelligence. This iconic SUV not only redefines opulence but also raises the bar for intelligent driving experiences.

The 2025 Cadillac Escalade IQ is its very own thing, built on GM’s Ultiium platform, with the 24-module Ultium battery, to provide an estimated range of about 450 miles, which according to the EPA actually falls in-between the range of an ICE and diesel Escalade.  Cadillac says the Ultium battery will allow the Escalade IQ to produce over 200 kWh, and when combined with Cadillac’s “driver selectable Velocity Max” can produce up to 750 horsepower and 785 lb-ft of torque.

There’s plenty of Lyriq DNA and this is most noticeable up front as the model wears a black crystal shield grille. It’s fully enclosed and features choreographed lighting sequences that are bound to draw attention.

Underneath the hood lies a sophisticated electric powertrain, showcasing Cadillac’s commitment to sustainable engineering without compromising on performance.

The cabin is a sanctuary of opulence, adorned with premium materials and meticulous attention to detail. But what truly sets the Escalade IQ apart is its intelligence quotient. Features a 55-inch curved display with speakers that function as end caps. Roughly 35 inches are dedicated to the driver and this includes a central infotainment system with Google built-in. This provides access to Google Maps, Google Assistant, and the Google Play store. Further below, there’s an 11-inch front command center that appears to be focused on climate controls and vehicle settings. Also included are virtual smart controls, such as Universal Remote, which can learn over time to do things like open your garage as you pull up to your home.

Safety takes center stage with an array of AI-powered features that enhance driver awareness and assist in avoiding potential hazards. The Escalade IQ’s intelligent systems work seamlessly to analyze road conditions, monitor traffic patterns, and provide real-time alerts, ensuring unparalleled peace of mind on every journey.
