The nearly decade long wait for the new Cadillac Escalade is over, with the 2015 model debuting in New York city at a special event hosted by GM. Our friends at AutoGuide.com attended and graciously shared their live shots with us.
With the Chevrolet Avalanche gone, the pseudo-truck EXT model is no longer available, but the base and extended-wheelbase ESV models will stick around. Power comes from a 6.2L V8 making 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft via a 6-speed automatic. Cadillac’s CUE system will also appear, as well as a suite of active safety features like forward collision warning, lane departure warning systems and adaptive cruise control. Despite some weight savings, expect fuel economy gains to be modest.
