General Motors has officially pulled the sheets on the 2025 Cadillac Escalade IQ, showing off a brand-new, all-electric reimagining of the popular luxury SUV. The 2025 Cadillac Escalade IQ will be sold in the United States as well as in other select global markets, including Canada. As such, coinciding with the announcement of the 2025 Cadillac Escalade IQ for the U.S., GM has also announced the 2025 Cadillac Escalade IQ for Canada.
As it stands, there are no obvious equipment or trim level differences between the Canadian-spec Escalade IQ and U.S. models. The trim level lineup includes Luxury and Sport, with both trims incorporating unique styling features, including brushed aluminum for the Luxury, and darkened metal for the Sport. A two-tone paint finish is also offered. Wheel options include 24-inch designs.
The cabin space is highlighted by a pillar-to-pillar 55-inch LED display, with seating for up to seven passengers thanks to a power-folding third row. Tech features include the GM Super Cruise driver assist system, as well as Blind Zone Steering Assist, Intersection Automatic Emergency Braking, Automatic Parking Assist, among others. Audiophiles can opt for a 40-speaker AKG sound system.
As for what’s under the skin, the 2025 Cadillac Escalade IQ draws motivation from dual GM Ultium Drive motors and a 200 kWh GM Ultium battery pack. Peak output is rated at 750 horsepower and 785 pound-feet of torque with Velocity Max mode enabled, propelling the new all-electric SUV from a standstill to 60 mph in less than five seconds. Towing capacity is set at 8,000 pounds.
Official pricing information for the 2025 Cadillac Escalade IQ in Canada has yet to be released. However, GM has indicated that the new Escalade IQ will start at US$130,000 (about CA$175,000 at current exchange rates) in the U.S. Production will take place at the GM Factory Zero plant in Detroit, Michigan.
