The very first production model of the 2023 Cadillac Escalade-V raised money for a good cause. The athletic SUV sold for $500,000 at the Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas Auction — and the proceeds benefitted the Pensole Lewis College of Business & Design. On top of that, a generous patron at the event donated an additional $25,000.
Raising money for tomorrow’s innovators.
The Pensole Lewis College of Business & Design holds the honor of being Michigan’s only historically Black college. The school is famous for providing educational opportunities for creative students in fields ranging from STEM and sustainability to business development and the graphic arts.
Global Cadillac Vice President Rory Harvey explained that the brand upholds ambition and dreaming big, so sponsoring the Pensole Lewis College of Business & Design is a natural fit. “We are grateful to Barrett-Jackson for providing a platform that will help make a difference for the next generation of creatives in Cadillac’s hometown of Detroit,” he further stated.
The Cadillac auction’s winning bidder won’t just get the first 2023 Escalade-V. They will also have the chance to design a sweet pair of shoes with popular footwear designer Dr. D’Wayne Edwards. Dr. Edwards is more than a high-profile designer — he also re-established the Pensole Lewis College of Business & Design 2021.

Everything about the 2023 Cadillac Escalade-V is designed to turn heads wherever you go. Recently, it was revealed that this stylish flagship SUV will be available in five distinct exterior color options — Radiant Red Tintcoat, Argent Silver Metallic, Black Raven, Crystal White Tricoat, and Dark Emerald Metallic.
These attractive colors aren’t the only outstanding part of this super-powerful SUV. The Escalade-V takes its power from a supercharged 6.2L V8 engine that unleashes 682 horsepower and 653 lb-ft of torque. This dynamo pairs with a 10-speed automatic transmission that provides smooth shifting and responsive performance. Thanks to this dynamic duo, the 2023 Cadillac Escalade-V can rocket from 0-60 mph in 4.4 seconds, as well as cover a quarter-mile in 12.74 seconds, cruising at a speed of 110 mph.
Like other V-series models, this SUV is loaded with top-of-the-line features including quad exhaust outlets, six-piston Brembo® front brakes, Edge Red brake calipers, unique 22-inch aluminum wheels, V-series badging, Magnetic Ride Control 4.0, and Air Ride Adaptive Suspension.
From thrilling cars to sophisticated SUVs, the Cadillac lineup has something for everyone, and it’s no wonder that many Cadillac models are considered dream cars. If you’ve purchased one of these envy-inducing models, it’s important to take the time to properly maintain it, or your dream car may develop some nightmarish problems. Here are some key ways to maintain your luxury Cadillac.
Keep up with service.
You need to follow the maintenance schedule outlined in your owner’s manual. This is one of the easiest ways to make sure your Cadillac is up to date on service and keeps functioning properly.
Clean the seats.
If you have premium leather seats, it’s worth the effort it takes to clean them twice a week and keep them looking like new. Vacuum them thoroughly, using the suction hose for different crevices, and then wipe them down with a leather cleaner and microfiber cloth.
Inspect the tires.
While filling up at the gas station or charging the battery, take a look at your tires. Ensure they have enough air pressure and that they don’t have any cuts or bulges. This can help prevent a future blowout.
If your Cadillac is ready for service, schedule an appointment at Bud Weiser Motors in Beloit, Wisconsin, and our technicians will gladly assist you.
Get ready for an even smoother ride around Beloit, Wisconsin, thanks to the new MagneRide 4.0, now offered for Cadillac models. This next-generation Magnetic Ride Control system takes the superior performance quality of Cadillac vehicles and makes it even better. Debuting on the Cadillac CT4-V, CT5-V, Escalade, and CT5 Sport, MagneRide 4.0 is a fantastic suspension technology.
MagneRide 4.0 is the fourth generation of the Cadillac Magnetic Ride Control technology and improves responsiveness in varying road conditions. This version introduces major updates to the system, like new wheel accelerometers and updated magnetic flux control. It also has an inertial measurement unit, which is sensitive to the motion of the vehicle and allows it to adapt more quickly to bumps in the road.
A Smoother Ride
Within the active damping system, magnetorheological fluid and electromagnets work together to control the damping rate. The wheel accelerometers can read the road as much as 1,000 times each second. These readings then cause the magnetic charge to change, which in turn adjusts the damping rates of the vehicle’s shocks. The result of the system is a more relaxing, smoother ride, even on rough roads.
MagneRide 4.0 is just one of several innovations included in new Cadillac models. Discover more about these models when you give us a call at Bud Weiser Motors in Beloit, Wisconsin.
