Disappointing reveal with zero specs, especially as it relates to the engine.

Basically worthless as far as new information other than telling us it exists.

Bleh.

The teaser was more exciting than the reveal. :)
Maybe I should apply for a marketing job at Cadillac. It's sad when a new morning cereal commercial on TV is more exciting than a high performance Cadillac "reveal"...

Hopeful...

I mean, apart from the sound- how "V" can it be? With 3+ tons of mass to push around, I'm betting the specs aren't really going to be on the same level as say, the Track Hawk. I'd expect it to be at least 500 lbs heavier and 2 feet longer.

Sure, plenty of grunt off the line, but I'm looking at that thing thinking that any steering input is going to be accompanied by a short prayer and a donation to the tire fund! Max effort 60-0 will result in enough graphite to build a #2 pencil. And then, imagine you find a place to go full throttle and top speed!?! You'd probably get tire spin as you approach the aerodynamic equivalent of strapping the broad side of a barn on the nose of a 737.

I'm not saying I don't want one- I'm just saying I'm not sure what I'd do with it! Now, if they stuffed that engine in an XT5...

Anyone can release a reveal. But actually building and delivering it to a customer is a entirely different matter. Just ask the members waiting on a Blackwing (myself included).

@Mirza Grebovic

Are you involved with the development of the Esky V?
If not do you happen to know people who are?

I can't tell you how much us escalade customers would like the V to have a better handling package with lowered suspension over the regular escalade. I'm not talking about slamming it, I'm talking about maybe a 1"/2" or 2"/3" drop like GM does for the police package SUVs.

It doesn't even have to be standard, but it would be such an amazing option to have.

Please whisper it in someone's ear or please point me to the person who's wiener warmer I have to hand crank to get this done. :)

Saw it in person in Dallas last week. Can’t wait to see more details on it.

My main question is.... will it have enough performance to dethrone Hellrango as ultimate performance SUV?

Unlikely. The new GM FS SUVs are ginormous. We just got a Denali, makes the previous FS model look like Durango.
