Cadillacs latest model has arrived. Fourth-generation Escalade is the most important new Cadillac since the division’s renaissance. The Escalade continues to be offered in standard and ESV long-wheelbase forms, but the recently discontinued EXT pickup will not be making a comeback. The new Escalade still rides on traditional body-on-frame architecture. The Escalade also carries over a 6.2-liter V8, but this one comes from GM’s latest generation of direct-injection engines, with output increased to 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque The cabin of the 2015 Escalade features a wealth of perforated leather, prominent stitching and genuine wood, while wrapped and tiered surfaces demonstrate a level of detail and build quality absent in previous generations.
