General Motors stepped up its game and introduced the Escalade IQ in 2023 as part of the electric-car revolution. Since it already had the advanced Ultium platform that was already used on the Chevrolet Silverado EV, the automaker thought that it would be a great idea to use it on the luxurious Escalade and added the IQ badge behind that famous nameplate.

Since the Escalade was considered the luxury brand's flagship, it just came naturally for the American brand to burn the midnight oil and provide customers with an exquisite experience. Besides the technology and the luxury features of the vehicle, the Escalade IQ had to be bold-looking and provide a demanding look on the road.

The SUV featured a front fascia adorned with LED headlights that surrounded the main V-shaped panel where the badge took center stage. On the sides, the vertically-mounted daytime running lights clearly defined the vehicle's edges. From its profile, the Escalade IQ has shown tall door panels that cover one-third of the car's height. Behind the rear doors, the raked-forward C-pillars and the wrap-around rear windscreen created a dynamic look for the full-size American SUV.

Inside, Cadillac installed a luxurious cabin with up to six leather-wrapped seats. On the dashboard, the Escalade IQ boasted a wide curved display that covered the entire area between the A-pillars. Fronting the driver was the instrument panel, followed by the infotainment units' display atop the center stack. In addition, a separate touchscreen hosted the controls for the HVAC system. Furthermore, the side passenger had it own big display that controlled some of the audio.

One of the IQ's advantages was the front storage compartment that was large enough to fit two sets of golf clubs. In addition, at the back, the trunk's maximum space could reach a staggering 119.2 cu-ft (3,375 liters).

Cadillac adjusted the Ultium platform to provide a comfortable ride for its customers. As a result, the pneumatic, adaptive suspension and the battery pack could provide a smooth ride, and the driver could've lowered the ground clearance by 2 inches (50 mm) for easy access or raised it by 1 inch (25 mm) for crossing over obstacles. Despite the SUV's mass, the Escalade IQ offered up to 680 HP (500 kW) to please its customers. The battery pack fitted inside the vehicle's floor was large enough to hold up to 200 kWh of juice.

Last but not least, Cadillac thought about the SUV's maneuverability. Besides the all-wheel drive system, the Escalade IQ also featured a system named Four-Wheel Steer that could lower the turning radius to 39.4 feet (12 meters), comparable to compact-sized vehicles. In addition, the same system could've been used to move the car diagonally, thus easing entering and exiting parking spots.
