Sneak Peak at the 2015 Cadillac Escalade
The new 2015 Cadillac Escalade is looking sharp… and we mean it literally. It’s angles are not as curvy as it’s previous models giving it a larger and blockier appearance, getting slightly wider and slightly lower.
Under the hood you’ll find GM’s 6.2-liter EcoTech3 V8 pumping out 420hp and 460 lb-ft of torque giving it a 17 hp and 43 kb-ft over last year’s model. It comes standard with a six-speed automatic and an optional four-wheel drive, with slight raises in fuel economy from 13 to 14 miles city, and from 18 to 20 miles highway. Added features went into its larger fuel economy such as it’s active grille shutters, cylinder deactivation, as well as other aerodynamic changes.
You’ll charge from 0-60 in 5.9 seconds, on GM’s amazing Magnetic Ride Control suspension system, with sport and touring modes easily toggled on the dashboard.
The interior is nice. Cadillac is proud to say that its real as can be… everything that looks like metal is really metal and everything that looks like wood is really wood. The cabin is super quiet, using double-stacked acoustic glass, firewall insulation and triple sealed doors. It uses microphones and speakers with its Active Noise Canceling technology to block out any unwanted sound waves. Couple that with five USB ports, 12-volt outlets, a 110-volt outlet, a rear entertainment Blu-Ray Player accessible for up to 10 bluetooth devices and 16-speaker stereo that will provide an instant night club anywhere you go… Cadillac has spared no expense.
The 2015 Cadillac Escalade comes with three row seating, but fold those last two down and you’ve got 94.2 cubic feet of cargo space. Starting at $72,690 with it’s premium model tipping the scales at $84,225 it tops the market in premium full-size SUVs in every way.
