2025 Cadillac Escalade IQ – High-Tech and Luxurious Features. The Cadillac Escalade is an icon of the luxury SUV market, making up almost a third of premium full-size SUV sales in the United States. As General Motors continues its push towards an all-electric future, the range-topping full-sizer is next up for the Ultium treatment. Slated to arrive next fall, the all-new 2025 Cadillac Escalade IQ was unveiled Wednesday and it brings new design language, up to 750 horsepower, and an estimated 450 miles of range to the fight against BMW, Mercedes, and Range Rover.
Like all of General Motors’ upcoming electric vehicle projects, the Escalade EV is based on the automaker’s Ultium platform. At the heart of every Escalade IQ will sit a 24-module battery pack measuring in at over 200 kWh. While GM has yet to confirm whether it’s the same pack, the GMC Hummer EV utilizes a 24-module Ultium battery with 212 kWh of usable capacity. We also know that the battery itself will make up part of the SUV’s structure, allowing for lower floors and more interior volume.
The battery sends power to two electric motors, with one located at each axle. The two permanent magnet drive units work together to provide all-time all-wheel drive while doling out up to 680 hp and 615 lb-ft of torque in regular driving. Activate the truck’s Max Velocity drive mode and those figures jump up to 750 hp and 785 lb-ft of torque. Unlike the Hummer’s Watts to Freedom mode, the Escalade IQ’s Max Velocity mode can be used at all times if you so choose. Cadillac says the SUV should be able to hit 60 mph in less than five seconds, while also providing an estimated range of 450 miles per charge.
The Escalade IQ is supported by a high-voltage electronics architecture that allows for up to 800-volt DC fast charging. This means you can add up to 100 miles of range to the battery pack in as little as 10 minutes of charge time. A standard Level 1 charger should provide up to 14.8 miles per hour, whereas a Level 2 charger can provide up to 37 miles in an hour, according to Cadillac. The SUV will also support bidirectional charging capabilities, allowing customers to power their homes if it is properly equipped. This feature will be added to the Escalade IQ by way of an over-the-air update for the 2025 model year. Despite GM’s announcement related to the NACS charge point, the Escalade IQ will retain the J1772 port.
When the 2025 Cadillac Escalade IQ enters production next summer, customers will have two trim levels to choose from. The Sport model arrives with dark-colored trim accents and wheels, whereas the Luxury wears bright chrome instead. Cadillac hasn’t shared any differentiators between the trims beyond that. Pricing for the Escalade IQ lineup will start at around $130,000.
The current Escalade is an expensive offering, but that price brings the segment start into a whole different realm. Whether or not the Escalade remains the star in GM’s SUV lineup will be decided by how many trucks the company’s able to transact at that price.
