The 2025 Cadillac Escalade IQ has officially made splashdown, with GM pulling the sheets at a special debut event in New York City. With sleek styling, a wealth of high-tech features, and upwards of 750 horsepower, the 2025 Cadillac Escalade IQ takes the iconic Escalade nameplate in an all-new, all-electric direction. Now, you can relive the big reveal in the following video.
Clocking in at a bit under 23-and-a-half minutes, the reveal video covers the moment that the 2025 Cadillac Escalade IQ made its official debut, but also includes insights from various GM bigwigs, including those from Vice President, Global Cadillac, John Roth, GM President Mark Reuss, and Cadillac Escalade IQ Chief Engineer Mandi Damman, among others.
The 2025 Cadillac Escalade IQ starts with the 24-module, 200 kWh GM Ultium battery pack, which can provide as much as 450 miles of range on a full charge. Using the onboard 800-volt DC quick-charge capabilities, the battery will gain upwards of 100 miles of range in just 10 minutes. Meanwhile, users can leverage the bidirectional charging capabilities to power their home during peak hours to offset energy costs, or to minimize the impact of a power outage.
Turning the electrons into forward momentum is a set of front- and rear-mounted GM Ultium Drive motors, which dole out a maximum of 750 horsepower and 785 pound-feet of torque. Properly applied, it’s enough muscle to send the full-size SUV from a standstill to 60 mph in less than five seconds. Towing capacity is set at 8,000 pounds.
Beyond the technical specs, the 2025 Cadillac Escalade IQ looks the part of a luxury icon thanks to new, streamlined styling, with Luxury and Sport trim levels standing out thanks to unique exterior details. The cabin space is also quite impressive, with a massive 55-inch LED display mounted on the dash. The GM Super Cruise system is optional.
