2015 Cadillac Escalade

Cadillac has been an interesting story in the auto industry over the past several years. Its comeback bid may be well over a decade old, but it’s only recently that the Wreath and Crest has transformed from the auto industry’s retirement home into its hot new thing. Today’s Cadillac is a powerful marque working to instill passionate design, sound driving dynamics and cutting-edge technology into each model it builds, with vehicles like the ATS and redesigned CTS leading the charge.

Now, its latest model has arrived. This fourth-generation Escalade is among the most important new Cadillacs since the division’s renaissance kicked into high gear. It’s the brand’s de facto flagship, and the first vehicle many young people think of when hearing the name “Cadillac.” In the past, the Escalade was the chosen vehicle of the rich, flashy and famous. It’s suffered over the past few years, though, particularly as new and more luxurious competitors have come to the fore.

With this latest redesign, General Motors is aiming to retake the spotlight as purveyors of the market’s premier luxury SUV. To find out if it’s been successful, I ventured down to the South Carolina Lowcountry to test the all-new 2015 Escalade.

2015 Cadillac Escalade configurator lets you bling it your way

Cadillac Escalade configurator

It’s Friday, so there must be a new configurator to play with. While last week we showed you how to build your own McLaren 650S, today’s ride is a bit more common. It’s the 2015 Cadillac Escalade, a vehicle that you’ve been able to colorize since the end of last year, and which is sure to be an increasingly common sight on US roads in the coming months.

For those that have played with the build-your-Caddy tool, there’s not much new here, aside from the vehicle being configured. The Escalade is available in three trims and two wheelbases, with prices spanning from the SWB, two-wheel-drive Standard, which starts at $72,690, on to the all-wheel-drive, long-wheelbase ESV Premium, which kicks off at $86,790. The options list, meanwhile, isn’t hugely extensive. A rear-seat entertainment system and power-retractable side-steps (only available on the Premium trim) are the two notable options, while customers will have their choice of six exterior paints and two to three interior schemes, depending on the trim level.

Hop on over to Cadillac’s consumer page and take a look.

Cadillac could ‘flourish’ in Australia, says marketing chief

2014 Cadillac CTS

Cadillac might have its best product mix in recent history, and GM’s luxury brand is looking to expand. In fact, it might even be making a trip Down Under, at least according to the company’s global marketing chief.

Uwe Ellinghaus spoke with Australian site Car Advice at the Geneva Motor Show and said the brand could be quite successful there. “[The] goodwill that the Cadillac brand has is such a good starting base that once we get proper volume commitment and a dealer network behind it we can easily flourish,” he said, though he warned that the plans are still in their earliest stages and years away. First, Cadillac will expand in markets with the highest possible sales, like China and Russia.

Ellinghaus said that the most likely models for Oz would be the SRX, Escalade and CTS; the latter would probably act as a replacement for the Holden Commodore. GM’s Australian arm is ending local production in 2017, and there have been many rumors about what is happening to the big sedan. However, Ellinghaus admits exporting cars from the US to Australia is going to mean higher prices. In addition to the expense, Cadillac doesn’t currently build any right-hand-drive models. It would likely take until the end of the decade before the Aussie models could be ready.

This isn’t the first time the brand tried to break into Australia. Cadillac nearly went on sale there around early 2009 but was cancelled at the very last moment, with only a few cars having made it to the land of Oz.
