Although the 2015 Cadillac Escalade is new to the scene, the luxury automaker plans to put out a 2015.5 Cadillac Escalade with a slew of updates, including the new Cadillac emblem (now without the wreath) and an all-new Platinum model (which will be the highest trim).

But, according to, that’s not all we can expect for the 2015.5 Cadillac Escalade. The new Escalade, along with the GMC Yukon, will also receive a 360-Degree Vision system, which makes use of two side-view cameras along with the already existing rear-view camera and a new front-view camera that will be mounted in the front grille. The result is a complete 360-degree view around the SUVs. The camera comes first to the 2015.5 Escalade.

The large GM SUVs will also receive a new eight-speed automatic transmission, paired with the 6.2-liter V8. It is reported that the 5.3-liter V8 will remain mated to the six-speed automatic gearbox.

We’ll bring you more updates on the 2015.5 Cadillac Escalade as they come in.

    We have a 2015.5 esclade with the new 360 camera, it is very foggy, distorted and very hard to see what’s behind you. My wife lives by the rear view camera. We traded a 2012 esclade in and wish we could keep the 2012 rear camera. We feel this new camera is a real hazard as it is near impossible to see what’s behind you. We did take it to the dealer and the tech said it is working as designed, we strongly disagree!! Mike Delullo
