Global debut of 2015 Escalade set in October in NY

Article by Anita Panait, on August 16, 2013

The global debut of General Motors’ redesigned 2015 Cadillac Escalade sports utility vehicle will take place in New York City in October 2013. GM is expected to launch the 2015 Escalade for sale next spring. The 2015 Cadillac Escalade to be underpinned by a body-on-frame platform, a version of the one that underpins the redesigned GM pickups launched in June.

The next-generation Escalade – dubbed by GM in its media invitation to the debut as a “bold, evolutionary statement” -- is expected to don an improved interior, like a fold-flat third-row seat. Sources told Automotive News that the 2015 Escalade will have base price that could be several thousand dollars higher than the base 2014 model’s $67,985 tag, including the destination fee.

Prices for Cadillac’s offering have been increasing as it introduces more sophisticated vehicles to compete more directly with German premium carmakers. For instance, the redesigned Cadillac CTS sedan will have a price that is over $6,000 more expensive than its outgoing sibling.

Cadillac posted a 1-percent hike in sales of the Escalade -- including the extended ESV model and the EXT pickup – in the United States to 12,638 units in the first seven months of 2013. GM is not bound to build the EXT version for the 2015 Escalade.

Cadillac posted a 30-percent jump in overall sales in the US in the first seven months of 2013, only to Porsche’s 31-percent growth in the country. Boosting Cadillac’s strong sales performance in the US are its ATS compact and XTS large sedan, which were just launched in 2012. GM has said that it will introduce 10 new or overhauled Cadillac models by mid-2015, including the redesigned Escalade and the CTS.
