Cadillac has crafted a bold stylish replacement for the Escalade full-size SUV.
Offered in two- and four-wheel drive being powered by a 420 HP 6.2 V-8, the new Escalade will be built with two wheelbase options—116.0 and 130.0 inches, the larger reserved for the ESV. That Escalade ESV and Escalade ESV Platinum models will measures 224.3 inches overall, offering 20 inches of extended cabin room compared to the standard model. The Escalade’s exterior features a sleek, tailored look with a large shield-shaped chrome grille flanked by new vertical all-LED headlamp clusters offering a source of light that will allow you to find new roads.
While the Escalade shares its platform with the full-size Chevy Tahoe and Suburban and the GMC Denali, the interior is exclusive to Cadillac and for the first time has been designed by Cadillac and not the GMC Truck Division. Expertly worked leathers, exotic woods and brushed metals combine to reward both eyes and touch. The Escalade is equipped with the high-tech voice activated CUE interface that uses a dash-mounted 8-inch touchscreen to control entertainment, navigation, climate, phone (including Siri hands free assistant) and access to many downloadable apps.
The Escalade’s ride also benefits from a magnetic ride-control system that instantly adjusts the shocks to soak up bumps in in the road. The Escalade rides on standard 20-inch wheels, with 22-inch rims optional. Four-wheel disc brakes are standard, along with a host of safety features including brake assist and blind-spot and lane-departure warnings using cameras and radar sensors to offer the driver the most information available and deliver the safest ride. Pairing all the options offered in the Escalade with the safety and convenience of OnStar make the new Escalade an SUV that will not ask you to compromise or settle for anything less then perfection.
The 2015 Cadillac Escalade is expected to arrive in dealerships in the spring of 2014
