2015 Cadillac Escalade

Cadillac has introduced the all-new 2015 Escalade. Coming to its fourth generation, the favourite SUV among the likes of Kanye West and 50 Cent comes in standard as well as an extended-length ESV edition, with a 6.2-litre V8 lump underneath its hood.

Exterior-wise, the new Escalade is said to be more “sophisticated” while the sectioning of the body oozes more “emotion” than before. The headlamps incorporate Total Internal Reflection LED high-beam function, which is comprised of four vertically stacked crystal lenses and LEDs. At the back, vertical LED tail lamps extend to the top of the vehicle while the new tailgate integrates the rear window wiper into the spoiler, giving it a sleeker look.

Wheels are available in standard 20-inch form but if those aren’t grand enough, pompous 22-inch wheels are on the menu as well.

The interior carries the biggest changes over the three previous generations, combining wood with premium materials and sueded accents for its upholstery. The centre stack is fitted with an 8-inch screen for the Cadillac User Experience (CUE) which for the first time, comes as standard. Heated and cooled seats are standard in front and second-row.

The 6.2-litre V8 engine pumps out a total of 420 hp and 623 Nm, that’s a 5-percent increase in horsepower and 10 percent more torque over the previous gen Escalade. A Hydra-Matic 6L80 six-speed automatic transmission with enhanced TapShift control sends the power to two or all four wheels, depending on customer’s choice of configuration.

Chassis and suspension has been upgraded as well. The new Escalade now runs on coil-over-shock front suspension and five-link/coil-spring rear suspension setup with StabiliTrak electronic stability control and Magnetic Ride Control damping system that “reads” the condition of the road to provide more precise body motion control.
