The exterior of this large vehicle is quite impressive. It’s all about chrome, so more of it is enhanced inside the grille in those three flowing wings of horizontal stakes, some is even in the grill emblem. Continuing the chrome trend those massive grille ends in some updated LED lights that are looking pretty good. Not to forget that it’s a respected tradition of this great car to possess the LED lights since it was the Escalade Platinum first-ever car to offer LED lighting for low and high beams. At the rear, LED taillights reach vertically up to the roof and illuminate the Cadillac wreath-and-crest logo. But underneath this shiny outside it remains what it always was: a large sport-utility vehicle that shares much of its basic structure and running gear with the more plebian Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban and the GMC Yukon.  The standard Escalade is 204 inches long, and the extended Escalade ESV is 224 inches–or just shy of 19 feet–in length. The standard model has 51.6 cubic feet of luggage space with the rear seat up; the ESV increases that to 76.5 cubic feet. Some may complain its bold design or the intention to make the door fit into body openings, rather than over them, or even triple sealed flush fitting. Those still don’t change the fact that its exterior makes strong impressions no matter your personal taste.

Stepping inside it gives you completely different perspective. For example: electrostatic switches of the standard 12.3-inch display panel are interesting yet bit tricky to master. On the other hand extra space on the front legroom is a good call as oppose to the 1.5 inches of headroom up front that is unnecessary. The flush-mounting doors kept the wind noise outside and helped the ultimate feeling of quit and safe ride. Safety is as important as always, especially with the assist of optional Driver Assistance package. Being known as the one of the quietest and most refined cars ever made by General Motors, with a highway decibel rating far lower than the Chevy and even the GMC models means that he gets nothing but the best. So the usual powering is the top-ranked 6.2-liter, V-8 engine as standard in rear-drive configuration. And to make sure the Cadillac remains one of the most capable machines on the road in deep snow, rain or ice there are optional 4×4 setups. The 2015 Cadillac Escalade is built at a GM plant in Arlington, Texas. Production a will start in spring 2014, with the first vehicles to reach dealers several weeks later.
