Over the years, the Cadillac Escalade has become a stamp in the luxury full-size SUV segment. For the 2015 model year, the Escalade has taken design and technological features to the next level.
“Cadillac’s ongoing growth provides the ideal stage for the all-new Escalade to take a major step forward,” said Uwe Ellinghaus, chief marketing officer, Global Cadillac. “Escalade has always had a bold character, differentiating itself from other luxury SUVs. Now, Escalade adds more sophistication, with advanced technology and hand-tailored craftsmanship.”
Available in Luxury and Premium trim levels, the base level Escalade starts at $71,795 with a bunch of standard features. Included in the range of standard features is the CUE – Cadillac User Experience – system. The advanced infotainment system is housed in an 8-inch touchscreen which uses capacitive touch technology and gesture recognition.
The 2015 Cadillac Escalade is powered by a 6.2 liter V8 engine making 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. Mated to a 6-speed automatic, the 2015 Escalade can go from 0 to 60 mph in just 6 seconds flat. All models are offered with 2WD and 4WD drivetrains.
The 2015 Cadillac Escalade also features the brand’s Magnetic Ride Control technology, which allows for a more fast-reacting suspension under performance driving. In terms of trailering, the standard model can pull 8,300 pounds or 8,100-pound on the Escalade ESV.
