2015 Cadillac Escalade review: The Perfect Step Forward

The redesign of the interior is what really sticks out on this Cadillac. Instead of looking and feeling like a truck (Tahoe, Yukon, Suburban), this Cadillac can stand proud next to its other Cadillac brothers and sisters knowing that it has just as much grace and elegance then the rest of them.

Bottom Line

Cadillac wanted to take back its authority position in the SUV market with this new Escalade, and with the change over to making Cadillac more of a luxury SUV and less like a truck, they might have just done that.

In its fourth-generation, Cadillac may have hit the trifacta with the introduction of the redesigned 2015 Escalade. With a powerful and more fuel-efficient engine, newly designed exterior body-lines, and an up-dated interior with all the fixing to compete with domestic and foreign SUVs like the Lincoln Navigator, BMW. Land Rover and Mercedes, this is GM s nicest luxury SUV to date.

Drive-train Excellence

Looking at the Interior

On luxury and premium trim packages the driver will also have the choice of looking at a head-up display.

The drivers instrument panel is another innovated piece of technology for this Cadillac. Not only will the driver have visual access via a 12.3” display, but they will also have the option of four different layout settings. On luxury and premium trim packages the driver will also have the choice of looking at a head-up display.

One more thing that ascents the high-quality of this interior is the replacement of dome lights with the more elegant look of LED interior lights.

The Changes to the Exterior Appearance

There has been some significant changes to the outside of the Cadillac, sharper body-lines, a tucked away rear wiper that gives the tailgate a cleaner look, standard 20” rims and optional 22” rims, even LED lights for the door handles on certain trim packages. But probably the biggest noticeable difference is the LED redesigned head and taillights, both of which have the Cadillac wreath-and-crest emulated in them and glow in the dark. The tail-lights have a signature light design that travels to the roof of the vehicle and lets everyone in the review-mirror, even if they re not closes enough to see the emblems, know that they re behind a Cadillac.

A few other exterior changes for the Escalade include a aluminum hood and tailgate and a hands free lift gate activated by a motion sensor that can be set-off by your foot.

Magnetic Ride Control Suspension

For the first time the Escalade will come with this system on all models as a standard. It was first introduced by Ferrari. and then GM got into the technology putting it on the Corvette ZR1s. Now most all of GM s high-end vehicles are graced with this truly amazing technology that uses a fluid inside the shock that contains iron particles and an electric magnet that can alter viscosity in milliseconds, much faster than using the traditional mechanical valve shocks. The Quietest Escalade Ever Along with making you feel comfortable inside comes along the task of keeping a nearly 3 ton vehicle quiet for the passengers while driving down the road. Cadillac had some tricks up their sleeve when it came to this task.

Bose active noise cancellation material was placed throughout the vehicle including in the wheel-wells and in the engine department. This is the same type of technology that is used in studios. Body-gaps were tightened and the doors where adjusted to set in much more snug. Also new to the Escalade is an open-and-close shutter system behind the front grille.

When the car reaches a certain cursing speed the shutter closes, this not only helps with sound damping, but also helps with aerodynamics in turn helping on gas millage.

Top Notch Safety

GM has never spared any expenses when it came to safety and the Escalade is no different. You will have warning systems like forward collision alert, lane departure alert, a patented safety alert seat – which controls vibrations in the seat warring the driver of potential crash treats – side-blind zone alert, lane change alert and rear cross traffic alert. The Escalade also has front and rear braking assist that are activated by radar sensors that can prepare the car to stop before the driver even knows he has to.

Another first for the Escalade is a front center air-bag placed in the dashboard. This air-bag is designed to help occupants on the opposite side of a side-collision who s body might go off the intended path of the air-bag in front of them due to the force of a side-impact.

It should be noted, not all of the above options are available on the standard Escalade.
