Revealed: 2015 Cadillac Escalade

The 2015 Cadillac Escalade was revealed last night in New York City. The fourth generation Escalade has been completely redesigned inside and out. Cadillac will definitely shake up the large luxury SUV class with this all-new Escalade.

The 2015 Cadillac Escalade will be powered by a 6.2L V8 engine, producing 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. The engine will be mated to a Hydra-Matic 6-speed automatic transmission. The Escalade will be available in 2WD and 4WD configurations. Fuel economy is expected to increase over the last generation model through the use of Direct injection, cylinder deactivation, continuously variable valve timing, and active grille shutters.

The exterior of the 2015 Escalade is really attractive and works! The interior of the 2015 Cadillac Escalade is 100x better than the previous generation. This is an interior that you would want to spend a lot of time in. I am not a big fan of column mounted shifters and wish Cadillac would have used the shifters from their other models. That is the only thing that I feel takes away from the luxury look of the cabin. Cadillac's CUE system also makes its way into the new Escalade. Available features include Forward Collision Alert, Lane Departure Warning System, Safety Alert Seat, Adaptive cruise control, front and rear braking, and Automatic Collision Preparation.

The 2015 Escalade will go into production next Spring at GM's Arlington, Texas factory. The next generation Escalade should hit showroom floors by next summer.
