For many years, the Cadillac Escalade has always been the go-to for American Families who want a large, luxury, three-row SUV. As Cadillac begins to electrify their entire line-up, they did not want to leave the Escalade heritage behind. Therefore, the 2025 Cadillac Escalade IQ was born! Not only does this IQ take the Escalade to an entirely new powertrain, but it also takes the Escalade to a new level of luxury. This article will cover all the in-depth details that we currently know. Please watch the video linked at the bottom of this article for a full deep dive of the design!

 What’s New for 2025?

  • New product from the ground up by Cadillac

Trims and Pricing

Extensive Pricing and Trim Information will be Released Later

The Escalade IQ will have Luxury and Sport grades, with a starting price of $130,000.

Evidently, the Escalade IQ is much more expensive than the standard gas version. However, Cadillac added plenty of extra goodies to justify such a price. At this price point, the IQ is not currently eligible for any tax credits.

Design and Features

The Escalade IQ takes design cues from both the gas powered Escalade and the Cadillac IQ products. Many of the lighting elements will be very “IQ-esque,” while the Escalade will give the IQ its iconic boxy design. Please watch the video at the bottom of this article for a full in depth design review!
