    Default Report: Corvette Z06-Powered Cadillac Escalade-V Under Development

    Report: Corvette Z06-Powered Cadillac Escalade-V Under Development

    By Rob Loszewski
    09-10-2015


    According to Motor Trend magazine, apparently, Cadillac is currently developing a CTS-V powered Cadillac Escalade.

    Motor Trend's very own Jonny Lieberman, recently tweeted that an Escalade V is imminent. Although it's too early to tell what the specs will be for this new Escalade-V, power expected to come from the C7 Corvette Z06's LT4 engine and is currently found under the hood of the CTS-V.

    Expected power output should be well in excess of 600 hp and 600 lb-ft of torque as the CTS-V engine cranks out a hefty 640 hp and 630 lb-ft of torque.

    Current Escalade owners have had to resort to aftermarket tuners like Hennessey Performance Engineering in Texas in order to massage a little more power out of the Escalade's engine. The General's attempt could give tuners like Hennessey, a run for their money.

    The new Cadillac Escalade-V could make it's debut as early as next years New York International Auto Show. Stay tuned!

    I am just amazed at the 6000 lb vehicle with 500 hp so big and not very aerodynamic just not a fan like roadsters with 325 hp I sell Challengers with up to 707 hp even that is too much power for city streets but the rocket power scale train cars are awesome thank you for sharingReport: Corvette Z06-Powered Cadillac Escalade-V Under Development
