I’d imagine the V team is developing performance versions of the Celestiq and Lyriq side by side.
It should be more than the Blazers 557 So north of 600 would be nice.An EQE SUV AMG has 677 HP. I wonder what Cadillac will come up with here, given the AWD has 500HP.
Seeing that there will be two SUVs above the Lyriq I don’t see huge numbers from the V.Let's hope for something closer to the EQE AMG's number than the Blazer SS.
NO matter what, it's still a number game for a lot of people out there.
I'd be happy with 650 HP in the V. And maybe 850+ HP in a potential V-Blackwing, should Cadillac continue with the Blacking moniker. Though, the Tesla Plaids and potentially even Lucid Gravity are 1,000+ HP.
It just begs to question if Cadillac wants to play in that space.
Don’t forget the Vette SUVs will square off directly with Porsche/Lambo more than likely. Caddy will be looking at LR, RR and the rest of the Germans.So? EQS AMG goes up to 751 HP already. So the Symboliq-V (I think that's the one above Lyriq) should be in that range — give or take 50-100HP.
Also BMW iX M has 610HP.
They have to be huge numbers because that's what the V (and V-Blackwing, should they want to continue that moniker) stands for. It's all performance.
Cadillac also has to remember Cayenne Electric is also coming by 2025. And if Macan Electric is already hitting 500HP, that gives you the range of where Cadillac should be and Porsche will be.
Also, I don't see why Escalade couldn't get up to 1000HP, given Hummer's capability.
