Get ready for the 2015 Cadillac Escalade! This grand Jeep had its debut this week at a chic event in New York. The Escalade is producing the 420-horsepower powered from a V-8 engine and third-gen magnetic shocks. Exterior-wise, this Caddie has prominent LED lighting front and back, whereas interior-wise, the cabin is wrapped in special leathers. The seats have a greater quality than the rest of its siblings. However, the quality raises the price as well. The car has a rear-drive or all-wheel-drive setup in standard or ESV sizes.
The new Escalade is definitely smoother, more energetic, and more efficient.
The Escalade proposed pricing is somewhere between $65,000 and $95,000. It will be offered on the market in early Spring 2014.
Here are the specifications TopSpeed published a week ago:
