Cadillac has revealed the parameters of the Escalade-V, has 691 horses and costs 3.6 million crowns

Let’s start with the most important thing – the engine. It is a 6.2-liter eight-cylinder from the CT5-V Blackwing model, but with a larger, 2.65-liter compressor, which gives 0.69 bar of pressure and the engine with it produces 691 hp and 885 Nm. Cadillac says the Escalade-V is the most powerful full-size SUV.

Did he forget the Dodge Durango with the 720k eight-cylinder Hellcat? No – durango is referred to in the US as a mid-size SUV. The Escalade is a class higher and really doesn’t have a winner there, the Mercedes-AMG GLS 63 has 612 horsepower and the BMW X7 M50i a few dozen less.

Less than seven hundred horses lend the Escalada-V acceleration to 60 mph (97 km / h) in 4.4 seconds, and can handle a quarter mile in 12.74 seconds with a finish speed of 177 km / h. The carmaker does not state fuel consumption, but it will certainly be high – and important for most customers just to know how often they will have to stop at the gas station.

Of course, the car has a lot of driving modes, including one for towing trailers and one adjustable, in which it is possible to change the characteristics of individual components according to the driver’s wishes. It is worth mentioning the possibility to set the active exhaust to silent mode “Stealth”.

There is also all-wheel drive, which sends 50:50 power to the front and rear axles as standard. In sports mode, it prefers the rear 66% of power, but it is not possible to completely eliminate the front axle from the game. The carmaker does not state whether a reduction gear is available, which is common in the USA even for relatively luxurious SUVs. But he writes that the car will tighten a trailer weighing up to 3175 kg.

The standard equipment includes air suspension with adjustable ground clearance, six-piston brakes from Brembo on the front axle and adaptive shock absorbers. The suspension characteristics are, of course, tuned especially for this model.

However, the Escalade-V is still a luxury SUV, and both the tuning and equipment tuning match. There is everything imaginable on board, such as wood, semi-aniline leather or augmented reality navigation, as standard. A semi-autonomous driving assistant, called Super Cruise, is available at an additional cost.

Surcharge to the base price of $ 149,990, which corresponds to 3.6 million crowns, for the standard size; The Escalade-V will also be available in an extended version of ESV, which has no price yet. Of course, it is the most expensive version of this model.

If you want to import Escalade-V individually into Europe – otherwise it will not work, it will not be officially sold here – expect a price of five million for customs and VAT. Even before signing up for the Czech brands, which in the individual import of a new car from outside the EU is in the tens of thousands of crowns.
