The new totally redesigned 2015 Cadillac Escalade keeps up with its name and offers a top quality product that’s a real pleasure to drive.
The interior of this vehicle is coated nearly entirely in soft smooth leather. The spots that don’t have leather are outfitted with classy wood or chrome accents. There is plenty of storage room with several large compartments built into the vehicle. With seating for up to eight this vehicle is good for transporting larger families. The customizable digital gauge cluster and advanced media system help give this vehicle an up-to-date feel.
With a towing capacity of around 8,000 lbs. this SUV can pull many boats and trailers without a problem. This is thanks to the 420 HP engine that produces up to 460 lb.-ft. of torque. The six speed automatic transmission shifts very smoothly, and the engine emits a deep rich rumble.
Equipped with all the standard safety features this SUV is a good option for families. If you’re willing to pay a bit extra you can get nice additional features like adaptive cruise control, lane assist and a blind spot monitor that help make this vehicle even safer to travel in.
This update to Cadillac’s flagship SUV is a huge success making this one of the best Escalades produced to date. Sure it’s not cheap, but you get what you pay for, and with the 2015 Escalade you get a whole lot.
After wining the 2013 North American Car of the Year with its ATS sports sedan, Cadillac continues to roll out new products prepared to take on the best of the Europeans. We already showed you how Consumer Reports gushed over the new CTS and now we’re giving you a sneak peak of the soon to be unveiled next-generation Cadillac Escalade’s interior.
While CUE is clearly an attempt by Cadillac to set “The Standard of the World,” we have to say we’re a little surprised to see a standard column mounted gear lever in the above photo. While there’s nothing wrong with the mechanical nature of a traditional column shifter, much of the Escalade’s competition uses more compact “by-wire” shift levers.
Nonetheless, between the car’s overall size, and the apparent storage capacity of the Escalade’s center console, it doesn’t seem that drivers or passengers will be wanting for space of any kind in the all-new Escalade.
Keep an eye on Red Noland Auto Group’s official blog to learn more about the next generation Cadillac Escalade when it officially debuts next week.
