2015 Cadillac Escalade Goes Platinum, Adds More Luxury

Motor Trend logo Motor Trend 8/11/2014 Karla Sanchez

The new 2015 Cadillac Escalade was just introduced a few months ago, and although the large-and-in-charge SUV already delivers when it comes to the utmost in luxury, a range-topping Platinum Collection trim level takes it up another notch.

Available later this year, the Platinum Collection adds more bling to the Escalade with even more premium materials inside the cabin. The first-and second-row seats are swathed in Nappa leather, while the dashboard, upper door panels and center console also don hand-stitched and hand-wrapped leather. A suede microfiber headliner and wood accents complete the look inside the Platinum Collection models. As far as amenities go, front seats are ventilated and cooled, while the driver gets special treatment with a massaging function in their seat. As if a 9-inch overhead screen in the rear isn't enough, passengers are further treated to two 7-inch LCD screens built into the back of the front headrests. Other appointments that are part of the collection include a cooled center console, premium floor mats, and special door sills that read "Platinum." 2015 Cadillac Escalade Platinum© Provided by MotorTrend 2015 Cadillac Escalade Platinum

Setting itself apart from all other Escalades, the Platinum Collection wears 22-inch wheels, extra chrome accents, Platinum exterior badging, and a unique mesh-like grille with the new Cadillac crest in the center. All Escalades received new tech including 4G LTE connectivity, a new eight-speed automatic transmission, and Escalade's Surround View camera system that makes parking the large SUV easier to do.

The 2015 Escalade Cadillac Platinum Collection will available at the end of the year.
