Despite being one of Cadillac’s most popular models, the Escalade has never been offered in a high-performance V variant. But with competitors from BMW M and Mercedes-AMG raking up sales, it only made sense for Cadillac’s full-size SUV to join the performance truck game. Now, it’s finally official.
Cadillac announced Thursday its plans to reveal a high-performance Escalade V on January 21, 2022. In a video from the manufacturer embedded above, we can see the vehicle’s headlights overlaid with the sound of its exhaust. To the surprise of no one, the Escalade V will almost definitely have a V-8 of some kind. Though that’s about all we know for sure right now.
