2015 Cadillac Escalade Gets Pricey Platinum Collection

If you thought the 2015 Cadillac Escalade was already luxurious, wait until you lay your eyes on the Cadillac Escalade Platinum Collection, which steps it up with more of everything that already makes the Escalade the king of luxury SUVs.

Available later this year, the Platinum Collection adds more bling to the 2015 Cadillac 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."

Setting itself apart from all other versions of the 2015 Cadillac Escalade, 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.
