Although it still shares its bones with the Chevrolet Tahoe/Suburban and GMC Yukon/Yukon XL, the Cadillac Escalade finally set itself apart from its cheaper cousins with its 2015 redesign. A bold American design outside, set off by all-LED headlights and tall, vehicle-height vertical taillights, prepares passengers for possibly the best interior ever fitted to a Cadillac.
There’s plenty of space for up to eight passengers, particularly when ordered as the extended-length Escalade ESV, and Cadillac offers a full suite of luxury and driver-assistance features never before seen by the brand. Finally, materials are bespoke to the Escalade, rather than sharing lower-rent plastics and fake wood with the Suburban.
As you’d expect from a truck-based, V-8–powered, large SUV, fuel economy isn’t great—but it’s better than ever before in an Escalade. Additionally, thanks to all their optional features, most Escalades don’t leave the factory in standard trim. Expect to pay more than last year, especially since the Escalade is in such demand.
While prior Cadillac SUVs have made their money on their flashy, chrome-heavy styling, this is the first Escalade that’s really offered significantly more luxury than its plebian Chevy and GMC stablemates. It’s finally a premium product.

2015 Cadillac Escalade First Look
GM's premium brand is finally taking product differentiation seriously with the 2015 Cadillac Escalade. While still sharing most of its mechanical hardware with its blue-collar cousins, in terms of style, there's no mistaking it's a Cadillac, inside or out.
