The upcoming 2023 Cadillac Escalade is the redesigned variant that will receive some upgrades for the following year.

Fine leather, genuine wood, and shiny metal trims are all over its cabin, but the highlight is definitively a new digital display that dominates the dashboard.

The Escalades will deploy standard 6.2-liter V-8, but Cadillac also offers a more fuel-efficient 3.0-liter turbo-diesel inline-six as an option. No matter which engine you choose, the Escalade provides excellent performance and great handling. According to Cadillac, the new SUV will debut next year as the 2023 model.

Unfortunately, there are no significant refreshments to the 2023 Cadillac Escalade at all. The manufacturer only makes some small changes on the front fascia, making it more eye-catching. The much thinners LED headlights are present, as well as wider grille with a new pattern. In general, we like its massive grille and attractive hood that leaving a sporty vibe impression.

The Cadillac Escalade is relatively unchanged, and it features the same taillights, tailgate, and attractive wheels. No surprise, really, considering that last year’s model was refreshed much more. Like before, this SUV remains the most luxurious body-on-frame sport utility vehicle.
