Cadillac has replaced some of the exterior chrome with body-colored pieces. "Escalade is iconic and always bold, but the Premium Collection offers a new interpretation of that statement," said Don Butler, Cadillac vice president of marketing, in a press release. "It offers a new choice for Escalade buyers to express their personalities."
Front-end revisions include a restyled fascia with body-colored surround and horizontal cues accented by vertical chrome bars. The fender vents, body molding and door handles have also been redesigned. Polished 22-inch alloy wheels are standard and LED headlamps are optional on the Premium trim level. Around back a redesigned fascia sports dual rectangular exhaust tips; and joins clear tinted LED tail lamps and third brake light. The Cadillac emblem has also been updated.
