Haute Auto of the Week: 2015 Cadillac Escalade

Screen shot 2014-02-04 at 3.50.55 PMNot so long ago SUVs were purely vehicles riding on truck platforms and only provided their owners with mechanical benefits in the form of utility. Today represents a new era of automotive engineering where style, safety, entertainment, comfort and performance are just as important as hauling and storage. All of these attributes are provided in the 2015 Cadillac Escalade and Escalade ESV.

Life is full of wonderments. Desires are as intriguing and diverse as political opinions. If an exclusive full-size sport-utility vehicle with luxury accouterments suited for your lifestyle is the goal, then the solution is the all-new Cadillac Escalade. It’s the consummate vehicle for transporting up to 8 passengers in style and ultimate comfort. Especially if you opt for the Escalade ESV stretch variation.

For the latest model, the popular SUV received an entirely updated and opulent interior, performance and engine technologies, as well as advanced safety techniques to go along with its refreshed design. The 4th Generation Escalade will be powered by a new 6.2-liter FlexFuel V-8 engine with 420 horsepower and a platform riding on either 2WD or AWD. Cadillac’s standard Magnetic Ride Control adds performance characteristics to the behemoth that used to drive like a boat. Either base 20” rims or optional 22s get you rolling while a 12.3” LCD and entertainment center by way of CUE brings intelligence to the interior compartment.

Expect the prominent SUV in dealers early 2014.
