2015 Cadillac Escalade Mini-Configurator Reveals More Details

By Matthew Askari | January 02, 2014
The 2015 Cadillac Escalade has been on our radar since our spy photographers first captured shots of the exterior and interior, and the SUVs recent debut late last year. Cadillac says the Escalade name bears so much weight and clout for the brand, that it couldn't change it to the American luxury brand's newer, three-letter nomenclature as seen on the 2014 Cadillac XTS, CTS, and ATS. And for potential shoppers and enthusiasts, Cadillac has launched a mini-configurator that reveals the newest-gen's trim and color options. While all 2015 Cadillac Escalades will be rear-wheel drive and powered by a commanding 6.2-liter V-8 good for 420 horsepower, buyers will be able to choose from three distinct trims; All-wheel drive will be available on all trims, and power on all 2015 Escalade models is exclusively delivered via a six-speed automatic transmission. The standard, entry-level 2015 Cadillac Escalade comes well equipped with 20-inch seven-spoke alloy wheels, magnetic ride control which ensures a smooth ride in the cabin, and LED headlights and taillights. Cadillac's CUE infotainment system is also standard, while heat and leather find their way onto all seats and the steering wheel. Front passengers will also receive a cooled seating option, and 12-way power adjustments.
The Escalade Luxury model increases the wheel size to 22-inches with chrome inserts, and a host of safety features that include: Driver Awareness Package (Forward Collision Alert, Lane Departure Warning, and Safety Alert Seat); Lane Change Assist, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, and Blind Zone Alert; second-row power foldable seats, a full color display for the infotainment screen, and a sunroof. The highest trim Escalade Premium adds further safety features included in the Driver Assist Package, and niceties such as illuminated exterior door handles, and a 9.0-inch rear-seat ceiling-mounted screen. Buyers will also have a choice of seven exterior paint colors, including: Dark Granite Metallic; Radiant Silver Metallic; Black Raven; White Diamond Tricoat; Silver Coast Metallic; Crystal Red Tintcoat; and Majestic Plum Metallic. Interior color options include Jet Black with Jet Black accents, Kona Brown with Jet Black accents, and Shale with Cocoa accents.
