Cadillac’s Escalade-V Could Have Had A V16 Engine

The Cadillac Escalade-V is Caddy’s most powerful SUV ever. In fact, it’s the most powerful full-size SUV on sale right now, equipped with a 6.2-liter supercharged V8, producing 682 horsepower. But did you know Cadillac was once planning a more powerful Escalade?

The current V has enough power to get it to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds, which means it’s not the fastest, but it is good fun. Despite the size, weight, and lack of performance compared to the Mercedes-AMG GLS 63, we found it to be a fitting tribute to internal combustion. It will be the last SUV of its kind before Cadillac goes fully electric in 2030.

But what would the V have been like if Cadillac followed through on a mad idea it had in the early noughties?
