What Could These Extra 2025 Cadillac Escalade Cameras Be For: Is hat extra camera is the Ultra Cruise Camera and solid State LiDAR setup the Celestiq has?

Primed to make its official debut for the upcoming model year, the refreshed 2025 Cadillac Escalade will be highlighted by various updates to the exterior, interior, and powertrain. GM Authority expert photographers have already captured photos of several prototypes doing the rounds out on public streets. However, they recently grabbed pictures of an Escalade ESV unit sporting extra cameras in the windshield as compared to other examples we’ve covered. This begs the question, what could be the intention behind these additional cameras?

There are a few potential answers to this inquiry, including a next-generation GM Super Cruise (or what was to become GM Ultra Cruise) or additional and unannounced active safety features. Whatever the purpose is, it’s certainly not difficult to spot the extra cameras when facing the luxury full-size SUV head-on.

It’s worth noting that there are also smaller cameras fitted to the outside mirror stands.

As a reminder, the 2025 Cadillac Escalade is underscored by a fresh exterior design, which includes the reworked front fascia. On both Escalade prototypes above, we can spot the new lighting arrangement that features thin, upper horizontal turn signals and prominent, vertically stacked headlights and daytime running lamps, as well as a new dual-level grille design that combines a large trapezoidal upper intake with a slimmer lower piece.

Around back, outside of updated inner taillight cluster graphics, the rear fascia also receives a slimmer chrome strip below the rear window, a chrome liftgate garnish and reshaped exhaust outlets.

Moving to the cabin, the interior now features a full-width, pillar-to-pillar infotainment display similar to that of the all-electric Cadillac Escalade IQ and uber-luxurious Cadillac Celestiq.

Under the hood, the revised full-size SUV boasts a familiar powertrain lineup, including the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine, rated at 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque, and the GM 10-speed automatic transmission. However, the 3.0L I6 LZ0 turbodiesel Duramax will replace the 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax for the new model year.

Under the skin, the refreshed Escalade will continue to be underpinned by the GM T1 platform, with production taking place at the GM Arlington plant in Texas.
