2015 Cadillac Escalade Priced From $72,690

Follow Viknesh

Cadillac’s all-new 2015 Escalade goes on sale this summer, priced from $72,690 including a $995 destination fee. That's about $3,725 more than the comparable version of the outgoing model, though prices for the new Escalade were expected to rise in order to make way for a new three-row Cadillac crossover coming onto the market in the near future.

The listed price nets you a rear-wheel-drive 2015 Escalade powered by a 6.2-liter V-8 rated at 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque, and with the standard length of 204 inches. The stretched Escalade ESV measures in at 224 inches--or just shy of 19 feet--in length. Pricing for this model should be announced closer to the sales launch.

A six-speed automatic is standard on all models, as is Cadillac’s CUE interface, heated seats, magnetic ride control and 20-inch wheels (22-inch wheels are available). All-wheel drive should add a couple of grand onto the vehicle's pricetag.

On Luxury and Premium trim levels, Lane-Change Alert, Side Blind-Zone Alert, and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert systems are all standard. A package of driver-awareness features includes forward-collision warnings, lane-departure warnings, and a safety-alert seat system--which vibrates to warn the driver of a possible accident threat on one side of the vehicle or the other. Beyond that, the Drive Assist bundle adds fully adaptive cruise control, collision preparation, automatic seat-belt tightening, and front and rear automatic braking.

Key competitors for the 2015 Escalade include Mercedes-Benz’s GL-Class, which seems a steal at just $63,925, as well as the $84,195 Land Rover Range Rover and $83,540 Lexus LX 570.
