I have driven an Escalade before, actually I have driven an Escalade a few times. But I never thought that they could possibly make this vehicle any better than it already was. Well, I was wrong! The all new-2015 Escalade ESV represents the fourth generation of this popular luxury SUV that was first introduced back in 1999. It has a new exterior design that is instantly recognizable with it’s full LED front lighting. When it comes to luxury vehicles, I would have to say that the 2015 Escalade would take home the prize.
This vehicle definitely doesn’t lack in the space department. You can probably gauge the amount of space inside the Escalade just by looking at it’s size but even I was surprised when I first hopped into this SUV. It’s got so much room for not only passengers but for luggage and equipment as well. We took a road trip last week and packed in 3 adults and 2 kids and everyone had more than enough room for their bodies and their bags. Not to mention I didn’t have to hear those dreaded words from the backseat “He touched Me”, because they each had their own personal area in the back of the SUV.
Cadillac is known for it’s comfort and they threw it out of the ballpark with the 2015 Escalade. I am not big on driving long distances but in this SUV I could see myself going on a long distance cross-country road trip just because. The seats are comfy and there is more than enough space for everyone to lay back and enjoy the ride. The back also has it’s own heating and air and the second row has heated seats.
It seemed like every time I got in the car I would find a new hidden treasure that the Escalade would unfold. First the Escalade is keyless start which means you start and stop the engine with just a push of a button. The door handles are illuminated which makes it super easy to find your car at night and the windshield wipers are rain sensing which means they slow down and speed up on their own.
Oh I did I mention that the Escalade goes from 0-60 MPH in under 6 seconds!
The 12.3 inch high resolution driver information center is pretty high-tech. It’s completely operated by the touch screen, so you won’t find any knobs to turn the air up in down here. You just simply use your finger to adjust things like the radio, temperature and entertainment center.
Safety is a huge factor for me when looking for cars to buy. I want to make sure that if there is a way to keep my family safe on the road, I have it available. The Escalade offers a Driver Awareness Package that includes safety alert seat, forward collision alert and lane departure warning. These three things are priceless when your driving with your precious cargo in tow.
The back of the Escalade is loaded with space. We were able to fit several large suitcases and a ice chest in the back and still have plenty of room. The seats in the second and third row each have the power-folding feature so you can lay the seats down and back up again, all with the push of a button.
Now I saved my one of my favorite features for last. On the front windshield on the drivers side, the speed limit is posted for the area you are in and the speed you are going. I love this feature especially in places where you are not sure what the speed limit is.
There are many different types of luxury vehicles on the market but if your are looking for a vehicle that stands out then the 2015 Escalade is your SUV. We absolutely love it for not only it’s size and style but for all the safety features as well. The 2015 Cadillac Escalade starts at around $85,000.
