Exterior

The new Escalade will be offered in two trim levels, a standard version and the ESV. The main difference will be a 14 inch extension of the wheelbase of the ESV, affording passengers more leg room in the second and third row seating. Cargo area capacity have also been increased.

The front of the Escalade is all grille. The Cadillac emblem rests prominently at the center. The headlamps consist of 5 vertical LED's on each side that extend upward onto the cars top front fenders.

Even with its truck-like side view, the aerodynamics on the Escalade has improved for the 2015 model. This improvement will be realized in fuel efficiency and a quieter ride at higher speeds. Twenty inch wheels are standard.2015-Cadillac-Escalade-how-much-room-a-D

The rear features thin, vertical LED taillights that begin from the middle of the tailgate and extend upwards to the cars roof. A large third brake display rests in the center of the rear top immediately above the back window.

A smaller Cadillac logo adorns the top of the tailgate and "Escalade" is displayed on the lower driver's side just above the rear bumper. The power lift gate will open and close automatically with a light kick beneath the bumper.

Interior

Inside the 2015 Escalade, the instrumentation panel has 12 inch LCD gauges, some of which are customizable. On top of the wide center console is an 8" infotainment and navigation display.

As you would expect from a Cadillac the interior is, simply put, luxurious with both 6 and 7 seat configurations available.
