The 2023 Cadillac Escalade is the third model year for the fifth-generation SUV, introducing a handful of changes and updates compared to the preceding 2022 model year. Now, the 2023 Cadillac Escalade is once again offered with the Brembo Performance Brake package.
Officially called the Front 6-Piston Brembo Brake Upgrade with Color Matched Rear Calipers, this kit is tagged with RPO code 5JL, and is available as an LPO-level option, meaning it is installed by the dealer, rather than at the factory when the vehicle is initially produced. The upgrade includes the following content:
- Front six-piston Brembo brake calipers
- Red calipers on front and rear
- Front 16.1-inch by 1.3-inch Duralife rotors
- Cadillac script logo on front calipers
This brake upgrade is now available for all trim levels of the 2023 Cadillac Escalade and 2023 Cadillac Escalade ESV, with the exception of the Cadillac Escalade-V and Cadillac Escalade-V ESV. Pricing is set at $3,495.
Notably, the Front 6-Piston Brembo Brake Upgrade with Color Matched Rear Calipers was also available for previous model years of the Cadillac Escalade SUV. However, the package disappeared at the beginning of the 2023 model year, but is now once again available. A similar situation applies to the 2023 GMC Sierra 1500, plus the 2023 Chevy Tahoe, and 2023 Chevy Suburban, all of which once again offer the Brembo performance upgrade.
As a reminder, non-V variants of the 2023 Cadillac Escalade are available with a pair of engine options, including the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine, rated at 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque, and the 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax engine, rated at 277 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque.
