Cadillac has disclosed pricing details for the 2015 Escalade which can be had at a starting price tag of $71,695, without taking into consideration the extra fees for destination and handling. Pricier than its direct rivals, the Escalade features 20-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights and a hands-free tailgate while other goodies worth mentioning would have to be the Magnetic Ride Control, park assist and a rear view camera. Inside it gets a wood trim, leather upholstery and heated & cooled front seats. There’s also a digital instrument cluster, a Bose sound system and a CUE infotainment system.
Underneath the hood, the 2015 Cadillac Escalade comes exclusively with a V8 6.2-liter engine delivering 420 bhp and a peak torque of 460 lb-ft. The engine works with a 6-speed automatic gearbox which for more money can be linked to an optional four-wheel drive arrangement.
Cadillac has taken the wraps off the all-new Escalade which is scheduled to reach production phase next spring. From a design point of view, this latest generation benefits from a prominent front grille surrounded on the sides by stylish LED headlights, while the rest of the car has attractive sculpted lines.
Other noticeable features include the chrome trim and 20-inch alloys which can be replaced with 22-inch wheels that will probably be very popular among rappers and football players.
The interior cabin has been completely overhauled and now comes with significantly better materials plus a large 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and ambient lightning. Cadillac has also fitted the 2015 Escalade with a CUE infotainment system, real wood trim, as well as heated and cooled front seats. For more money clients can opt for a rear-seat entertainment system with Bluray and DVD support.
Under the hood is a V8 6.2-liter EcoTec3 engine pumping out 420 bhp (313 kW) and a maximum torque of 623 Nm (460 lb-ft). Power is sent to the front wheels via a 6-speed automatic gearbox which can be optionally mated to an AWD arrangement.
