The Cadillac Escalade-V made its formal introduction in January of 2022 for the 2023 model year, debuting an exciting high-performance variant of the iconic luxury SUV. Now headed into its second model year, the 2024 Cadillac Escalade-V will offer new 20th Anniversary features to mark two decades of Cadillac V-Series products. Here’s what the 2024 Cadillac Escalade-V’s 20th Anniversary of V-Series Commemorative Content will include.
Essentially, the 2024 Cadillac Escalade-V 20th Anniversary will include a selection of fresh aesthetic upgrades to help it stand out from the pack even more. Chief among these will be a custom grille header, as well as a unique puddle lamp projector. The cabin will also present a new wake-up animation screen. Tying it all together will be a new special heritage color, specifically Black Diamond Tricoat, tagged with paint code GLK.
Naturally, Black Diamond Tricoat will have limited availability when it comes to the 2024 Cadillac Escalade-V. Notably, Black Diamond Tricoat paint is also available on the 2024 Cadillac CT4-V, CT4-V Blackwing, CT5-V, and CT5-V Blackwing.
As for the greasy bits, the Cadillac Escalade-V cradles the supercharged 6.2L V8 LT4 gasoline engine, which pumps out 682 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 653 pound-feet of torque at 4,400 rpm. Output is routed through the GM 10-speed automatic transmission, which feeds an active all-wheel-drive system with variable torque split and an electronic limited-slip differential. Properly motivated, the Cadillac Escalade-V will sprint to 60 mph in just 4.4 seconds, completing the quarter mile in 12.74 seconds at 110 mph.
Standard spec also includes Air Ride Adaptive Suspension and Magnetic Ride Control 4.0 dampers, plus a multi-link rear end. Brembo brakes provide the stop at all four corners, while P275/50R22SL all-season tires provide the grip.
