Here’s The 2025 Cadillac Escalade ESV Sport Before Its Big Debut

2 months ago

As GM Authority has been extensively covering, the Cadillac Escalade is due for a mid-cycle refresh for the upcoming 2025 model year, headlined by updates to the exterior, interior, and powertrain. Recently, our spy photographers captured photos of a refreshed 2025 Escalade Sport out in public completely undisguised, and now, we’re taking a closer peek at a similarly uncovered 2025 Cadillac Escalade ESV in the following GM Authority Live Photo Gallery.

This refreshed Escalade Sport is coated in the Black Raven (color code GBA) paint color and outfitted in the Sport trim level. As one might expect, this particular unit boasts a Darth Vader-like demeanor.

Starting with the front end, we spot the revised front fascia that bears a striking resemblance to that of the all-electric Escalade IQ. More specifically, the new lighting arrangement features thin, upper horizontal turn signals and prominent, vertically stacked headlights and daytime running lamps, along with a new dual-level grille design that combines a large trapezoidal upper intake with a slimmer lower piece. Of course, the polished black mesh grille design designates this example as a Sport model.

Moving out back, the rear end of the refreshed Caddy maintains a familiar design in regard to lighting and styling elements, albeit with updated inner taillight cluster graphics.

Fortunately, our photographers were able to capture pictures of the 2025 Escalade’s all-new interior, highlighted by the full-width, pillar-to-pillar infotainment display similar to that of the aforementioned Escalade IQ and uber-luxurious Cadillac Celestiq.

In regard to powertrain specifications, all gasoline engines found in the current 2024 Escalade will carry over into the new model. That being said, the 3.0L I6 LZ0 turbodiesel Duramax is poised to replace the 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax. Notably, this example boasts the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine per the 600 badge on the tailgate, aligning with the luxury marque’s torque-based badging conventions.

Under the skin, the Cadillac Escalade and Escalade ESV both ride on variants of the GM T1 platform, while production takes place at the GM Arlington plant in Texas.
