The Cadillac Escalade-V stands as the most powerful, largest, and most expensive V-Series ever. But the appetite for progress up the food chain in unsatiable. And Specialty Vehicle Engineering has just the thing. Enter the 2023 SVE Cadillac Escalade SXR and Escalade ESV SXR. It’s touted as the most powerful limited edition Escalade out there, and is available exclusively through authorized Cadillac dealers.
2023 SVE SXR Cadillac Escalade: Details
The powerhouse engine and supercharger assembly on the 2023 SVE SXR Series Escalade delivers 800HP and represents the latest in state-of-the-art performance engine technology. Like the other potent vehicles in SVE’s garage, it features a blueprinted aluminum block, race-quality computer-balanced rotating assembly, including forged 1538MV twisted steel crankshaft, forged aluminum pistons, and upgraded cylinder heads, and SVE’s high-output supercharger assembly.
Specialty Vehicle Engineering will only be building 50 SXR Series Supercharged Escalades and Escalade ESVs. Given their rarity, we can expect them to be offered at a high price, but that’s a small price to pay for unrivaled performance and luxury packed into one vehicle.
The interior of the 2023 SXR Escalade features the SXR series supercharged emblem embroidered on the front seat headrests and floormats along with SXR series doorsill plates. Also included is a numbered (1-50) dash plaque and two numbered keyfobs displaying the SXR series emblem, HP, and torque. A portfolio with the embroidered emblem, owner’s manual, and window sticker is also included.
Of course, with great power comes the need for excellent stopping power, which is where the Brembo 6-piston big front brake calipers in red (custom colors are an option) with 16.1″ vented rotors come into play. To ensure the big SUV can still stop even after the 800 ponies launch the car down a drag track. If your goal is speed rather than capability, there is even an available sport suspension kit to lower the Escalade, should the customer wish to do so.
