Cadillac Escalade V is the most powerful SUV offered by America, but how is it compared to the fastest from Europe, against the DBX 707. The 2023 Escalade-V is the first-ever V-badged SUV from the automaker and the Aston Martin DBX 707 happens to be in this Caddy’s line of offense. The Caddy baffles us by being impressively practical and that is its triumph card against the driver-focused DBX 707 as well!
The Cadillac Escalade-V has a curb weight of 6,217 pounds is no joke, but the engineers at Cadillac have waved their magic wand to give their first-ever V-badged SUV a character unlike any other. Magical features include electronically adjustable Magnetic Ride Control, a 4.0 damper, and adaptive air springs. The 22′ gigantic wheels are wrapped with all-season Bridgestone Alenza A/S O2 tires making it a flexible drive. The V drive mode drops the ride height by 0.8-inches to tackle corners and float simply.
The Brit gets tweaked with new front suspension top mounts, stiffened dampers, and more sure-footed settings to distinguish it from its brothers. The 4950-pound Aston Martin DBX 707 is inherently flexible and has a more sporty dynamic as compared to the V. The DBX is an art when it comes to looks. It has loads of tweaked aerodynamic bits like a carbon-fiber front splitter, and air deflectors for the front and rear wheels. The rear diffuser and spoiler have been stretched for added aero appeal.
