A Detailed Look At The 2023 Cadillac Escalade-V Specs

The 2023 Cadillac Escalade-V represents the highest echelon of performance available in the luxury marque’s full-size SUV range, bringing a very powerful supercharged engine to the iconic Escalade nameplate. Now, Cadillac Society takes you through a closer look at the high-performance SUV’s specifications, from full powertrain figures to curb weight and suspension. 

Arguably, the most impressive aspect of the 2023 Cadillac Escalade-V is the powertrain. The Escalade-V is the first SUV to join the luxury marque’s line of high-performance V-Series vehicles, and it certainly has the powerhouse under the hood worthy of the designation.

In fact, the Escalade-V cradles the same engine as the CT5-V Blackwing: the supercharged 6.2L V8 engine (production code LT4). In the Escalade, it’s rated at 682 horsepower and 653 pound-feet of torque, making it the most powerful Cadillac ever to be produced. That engine bolts to Cadillac’s 10-speed automatic transmission, sending power to all four wheels via an active all-wheel-drive system with variable torque split.

Atop that eight-cylinder powerhouse is a 2.65L R2650 TVS supercharger that helps to accommodate the higher inlet and exhaust restrictions due to the full-size SUV application. It spins at 13,500 RPM, generating approximately 10 pounds of boost, with an electronically controlled bypass valve for optimal performance. Additionally, the supercharger has four-lobe rotors designed to facilitate a larger power band while providing low-end torque and high-RPM power. 

Below, we’ve included a full breakdown of specifications for both the regular Cadillac Escalade-V and the extended-length Cadillac Escalade-V ESV.
