What’s New for the 2015 Cadillac Escalade

Completely redesigned for the 2015 model year, the Cadillac Escalade does not disappoint.

2015 Cadillac Escalade Exterior

The Cadillac Escalade has always been a best-seller in the luxury SUV segment, and with a re-designed exterior, the full-size SUV is sure to make a bold comeback. The new Escalade is blockier, featuring bold lines and a commanding front fascia, demanding respect and turning heads on every street corner.

The 2015 Cadillac Escalade comes packed full of standard exterior features including 20-inch chrome wheels, automatic LED headlights, automatic wipers, magnetic ride control with Sport and Comfort modes, front and rear parking sensors, running boards, power-folding and driver-side auto-dimming mirrors, a hands-free power lift-gate, keyless ignition and entry, and remote start.

2015 Cadillac Escalade Performance

A 6.2-lilter V8 engine that produces 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque powers the 2015 Cadillac Escalade. A six-speed automatic rear-wheel drive comes standard, while four-wheel drive is optional.

2015 Cadillac Escalade Efficiency

The EPA estimates the rear-wheel-drive Escalade gets 15 mpg city, and 21 mpg highway, and 17 mpg combined, while the four-wheel-drive model is gets 14 city mpg, and 21 mpg highway, and 16 mpg combined. These numbers are slightly better than competing large SUVs.

The completely redesigned interior features premium materials, attractive design and functional layout. Passenger space is generous, and an all-new CUE infotainment system rounds out the impressive interior.

The interior offers a cavernous 94.2 cubic feet of cargo space when the second and third rows are stowed. The third row now folds away at the touch of a button located in the trunk, a welcome update.

Also new, the hands-free rear lift-gate now opens when you swipe your feet under the rear bumper, as long as the key is within three feet of the car.

Other standard features include tri-zone automatic climate control, a heated power tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, power-adjustable pedals, heated and ventilated eight-way power front seats with four-way lumbar adjustment and driver memory functions, leather upholstery, heated rear seats and split power-folding third-row seats.
