2025 Cadillac Escalade IQ: First Look at the Electric Escalade
Cadillac’s new flagship EV full-size SUV is all electric and all Escalade.

https://www.motortrend.com/news/2025...emaileditorial

The first look review looks good. The EV is about the right size for me - smaller than the Suburban, and it purports a long range: a 200-kWh battery which the company says will provide up to 450 miles of range. It is surprisingly maneuverable with 4 wheel steering and "crab walk."

But it is definitely in the pricey category: "The Escalade IQ should roll into dealerships next summer with a starting price around $130,000."

That's quite a bit more than I want to spend. It seems as if they added up all the money someone might spend on gasoline, oil & filters & maintenance labor on an ICE Escalade, multiplied by 1.5, and bundled into the initial sales price.

Yes, this is probably the first EV that looks really good. It's almost like the U.S. manufacturers other than Tesla have until the IQ have intentionally made them look ugly. Tesla looked good but has never updated so they look old now. It's nice to see Cadillac come up with a really good design. As for the cost, well, it is a Cadillac. The 2024 ICE Escalade is $88k-160k.

Looks really nice. I wonder what the charging speed is. Also, it’s roughly the same price as the upper trim Mercedes and Tesla Plaid X.

That's the issue. A Cadillac is NOT an upper trim Mercedes. It can be expected to have the quality of a Chevy with the price of the upper trim Mercedes.

Automobiles will always be a depreciating asset and I think people are crazy for paying that much money for something that will eventually be worth close to nothing. Cars today cost more than I paid for my first house which was brand new. It's just insane.
