What’s New for 2025: The All-Electric Cadillac Escalade IQ – The Cadillac Escalade is one of the most famous high-end SUVs in the world. It’s known for its bold style, strong performance, and high-end features. But what if you could get all of that without getting any petrol? That’s what the all-electric 2025 Cadillac Escalade IQ promises. It will go on sale in late 2024 and compete with the Tesla Model X, the Rivian R1S, and other electric SUVs.
In this blog post, we’ll take a closer look at what’s new in the Escalade IQ for 2025, from the beautiful design of the outside and inside to the powerful engine and cutting-edge technology inside. We’ll also let you know when it will be available for sale and how much it will cost.
Design: Exterior and Interior
This means that the Escalade IQ shares its platform with the GMC Hummer EV SUV. It looks and feels like a normal Escalade, but there are some clear changes. The front end stands out the most because it has a sleek hood with LED lights that spell out “Cadillac” in the script. Also made of LEDs, the headlights have a straight shape that fits with the Escalade’s style.
The Escalade IQ has a lower roofline and a back window that slopes down, making it look sleeker from the side than the standard Escalade. The door handles are flush with the body, which makes the surface smooth. The wheels are 24 inches in diameter, which is the biggest size ever offered on an Escalade. They have a future look that goes well with the fact that the car is electric.
The back of the Escalade IQ is also different from the standard Escalade. It has a full-width LED taillight that goes all the way around the car. A big “IQ” badge on the tailboard lets you know that the SUV is electric. There is a spoiler on the bumper that helps with airflow and drops the drag.
There are a lot of interesting things inside the Escalade IQ. A curvy 55-inch vertical LED screen that goes from pillar to pillar and across the front row takes up most of the space inside. The screen for the driver has an 8K resolution, and the screen for the passenger has a 4K resolution. This means that the images and details are very clear. Navigation, entertainment, climate control, car settings, and more can all be shown on the panel in a way that suits your needs.
In the Escalade IQ’s centre panel, there is a rotating dial that lets the driver choose from different driving modes. For example, Velocity Max lets the car’s full power shine through. The machine also has a charging pad for phones and other electronics that can be used wirelessly. The bottom of the steering wheel is flat, and it has buttons for different features, like Super Cruise Cadillac’s hands-free highway driving technology.
Escalade IQ seats are soft and comfy, made of leather and stitching that stands out. The front seats are heated cooled, and have massage features to make you feel even better. There are two different types of seats in the second row: a bench seat that can fit three people or an executive seat package with two separate seats and a centre desk with cup holders, storage spaces, and USB ports.
The seats in the third row are also roomy and comfy, with enough room for adults’ legs and heads. You can fold down the seats to make more room for goods in the back. There is also an eTrunk, a front storage area with 12.2 cubic feet of room accessible from the cargo area. This is possible because there is no standard combustion engine under the hood.
The Escalade IQ is driven by a battery system that works with two drive units to make good use of energy and deliver great performance. Escalade IQ can go 450 miles on a single charge, according to Cadillac. This is because the battery system can hold about 200 kWh. At home, a Level 2 (AC) charger with up to 19.2 kW of power can charge the battery system. At public charging stations, an 800-volt DC fast charger with up to 350 kW of power can do the same thing. The Escalade IQ can get up to 100 miles of range in about 10 minutes with a DC fast charge.
The two drive units are mounted on the front and back wheels of the car. This gives the vehicle all-wheel drive and torque vectoring, which improves handling and traction. Cadillac says that the drive units can produce up to 750 horsepower and 785 pound-feet of torque in Velocity Max mode. This lets the Escalade IQ go from 0 to 60 mph in less than 5 seconds.
The Escalade IQ also has a four-wheel steer system that lets the back wheels turn in the same direction as the front wheels or the opposite direction based on how fast you’re going and what you’re doing. This system makes the car more agile and easy to control, which makes it easier to park, turn, and get through tight areas. The Escalade IQ also comes with a Cadillac Arrival Mode that lets the car move diagonally, making a dramatic entry.

It is planned that the 2025 Cadillac Escalade IQ will go on sale in the summer of 2024 for the 2025 model year.
