The ultimate luxury SUV?

Cadillac has released some new details about the 2015 Escalade.

Set to go on sale next spring, the entry-level Escalade will come nicely equipped with LED headlamps, a hands-free tailgate and 20-inch aluminum wheels. The SUV also has a rear view camera, park assist, Magnetic Ride Control and an adaptive remote starting system.

Inside, there's leather upholstery, heated / cooled front seats and a leather-wrapped steering. Other highlights include a digital instrument cluster, a CUE infotainment system and a Bose audio system.

Moving up to the Luxury variant adds IntelliBeam headlights, a sunroof and 22-inch alloy wheels. The model also has a color heads-up display, power fold-and-tumble second row seats and a Driver Awareness Package that includes a Safety Alert Seat, a Lane Departure Warning system and Forward Collision Alert.

The range-topping Premium boasts all the aforementioned equipment as well as illuminated exterior door handles, a rear seat entertainment system and a Driver Assist Package with Automatic Collision Preparation, Automatic Braking and Full-speed Adaptive Cruise Control.

Regardless of which model is selected, all are powered by a 6.2-liter V8 engine that develops 420 bhp (313 kW) and 460 lb-ft (623) of torque. It is connected to a six-speed automatic transmission which can be paired to an optional four-wheel drive system.

They could have done so, so much better on the exterior design (fascia aside). The side profile, the entire rear carriage and tail end is not working for me at all. I much rather the current generation. Great interior and decent enough specs otherwise.

Nice looking but GM better have more power trains. There are a wave of SUV's from Germany that develop outstanding mpg and then there is the poor mileage Escalade. Another bailout?

I saw this driving in Chicago on Tuesday just north of Midway Airport. I remember being stunned by those giant tail lights. If I would have known it wasn't out yet, I would have snapped a pic.

AWD optional? Whats the point? Why not just make a MB R-class type vehicle if it's not expected to leave the road?

So no more Platinum? Escalade should have more ostentatious front mask just like with old one, King Of Bling,that would sell well in the Middle East,Asia.

That column shifter looks out of place Why not using the same shifter design of MB? The LED headlights look weird! And why US car makers love full chrome wheels? I see them on Corvettes and Cadillacs and even on the Viper!

Because chrome is nice IMO. I don't know why chrome is so frowned upon nowadays. Unless it's used on a Rolls or Bentley or Jaguar XJ, everyone acts like chrome is forbidden fruit. No idea why... And oh, I listen to rock music, before you start :)

I hate them even on Bentley and RR lol. Brushed aluminum looks better or titanium finish IMO. Anyway the car looks good and it is a big improvement over the last gen indeed
