'25 Cadillac Escalade V Features IQ-Themed Upgrades


SEMA News sources recently spotted an undisguised '25 Cadillac Escalade V near the Milford Proving Grounds.

The Escalade V is receiving an upgrade aligning with the IQ-themed Cadillacs, according to insiders. At the front, the images indicate a blend of the IQ-themed front fascia with the traditional ICE Escalade's design, featuring its signature grille.

Power will still be derived from a supercharged 6.2L V8, which currently makes 682 hp. That's sent to all four wheels through a 10-speed automatic.

An official debut is expected in the next month or so.

New '25 Ford Maverick XL Images Hint at Revisions for New Model Year

Ford Maverick XL

New images of the '25 Ford Maverick in its base XL trim have emerged providing hints at possible revisions for the new model year.

The prototype was painted in the brand-new Eruption Green color, hinting at new available colors for the '25 model year.

The base Maverick features modest steel wheels and is clearly marked as an XL trim, thanks to its uncovered fender vent. New headlights adorn the front end, while retaining some F-150-inspired shape, but feature a traditional halogen lighting instead of the LED signature. The grille design looks similar to previous Maverick models, though the finish might be slightly less upscale, according to the images.

The '25 Ford Maverick is expected to retain its two powertrain options: a 2.5L hybrid delivering 191 hp with a CVT, and a 2.0L EcoBoost turbocharged engine producing 250 hp with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Insiders say to expect an official debut in the coming months, if not weeks.
