The 2015 Cadillac Escalade has received numerous important interim-model updates, but until recently, only the pre-update models could be found on dealer lots. 2015i (interim) Escalades will be fairly hard to come by for the time being, but dealer supplies will become more abundant over the next month or so.
The most important update Cadillac’s 2015i Escalade has received is General Motors’ all-new 8L90E eight-speed automatic transmission, replacing the outgoing 6L90E six-speed. There’s also a load of new technologies such as OnStar’s 4G LTE Wi Fi hotspot, Siri Eyes free, wireless charging and Surround View, which provides an overhead view of the car and its surrounding area.
In addition to the myriad of powertrain and technology updates, 2015i Escalades are available in Platinum Collection trim. They can also be spotted fairly easily, as all versions will be sporting Caddy’s more modern shield logo.
