2015 Cadillac Escalade: This Is Really It, In 45 Screenshots and Video!

Big SUVs may not be as popular as they used to be back in the 1990s and 2000s, mostly because of politically correct notions, but the market is surely there and General Motors wants a large chunk of it with a trifecta of related models from its Chevrolet, GMC and Cadillac brands.

After the unveiling of the  2015 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban, and 2015 GMC Yukon and Yukon XL full-size SUVs, it’s time for the most luxurious edition of the group, the new 2015 Cadillac Escalade, which is scheduled for an introduction today.

These snapshots come courtesy of the manufacturer’s promotional video that we discovered on AOL and their auto industry obsessive website, Autoblog.com’s channel.

The images provide a full (albeit a bit grainy, despite our photo editing efforts) picture of the exterior of the new 2015 Escalade, which is exactly what we predicted and most of you expected it to be: an “Art and Science” interpretation of the Chevrolet and GMC versions of the trucks – probably more closer to the upscale GMC Yukon Denali, with most differences concentrated on the more chiseled front and rear ends, and body trims.

The interior, which has already been previewed by GM, is more unique, luxurious and elegant, not only from the previous model, but from its GMC and Chevrolet siblings as well. The swoopy dashboard mimics the design language of the ATS, the CTS, and the XTS, but it does keep the classic, protruding transmission lever on the steering column.

Under the sheetmetal, you’ll find a traditional body-on-frame architecture with engine choices to include V8 powerplants – we’ll know more details about that later on today.
