In a press release, Cadillac says, “Much of the story of Cadillac’s redesigned flagship SUV is on the interior, where new levels of luxury combine with the latest technology.” Cadillac’s CUE infotainment and connectivity system will be standard on the 2015 Escalade. The system can sync with popular smartphones and tablets, and features an 8-inch color screen. Users can use gestures and swiping motions to control CUE. Optional features will include a head-up display and a Blu-ray DVD player for the rear seats.
The 2015 Cadillac Escalade will feature a 6.2-liter V8 engine, which Cadillac says is more efficient than past engines. The V8 will make 420 horsepower and will be mated to a six-speed automatic transmission.
The 2015 Cadillac Escalade will go on sale in the first half of 2014. Pricing has not been announced.
