The 2015 Cadillac Escalade won the prestigious ‘Best Large Premium SUV’ honor at the Middle East Car of the Year (MECOTY) Awards. The jury panel was impressed by the Escalade’s luxurious interior, utility, and sophisticated technology for safety and connectivity.
MECOTY’s jury panel consisted of 14 of the Middle East’s leading motoring journalists and commentators. They selected the 2015 Escalade based on a five-point scoring system with parameters that included Design & Quality, Handling and Drivability, Safety & Durability, Performance & Capability, Technological Innovation, Emotional Appeal & Driver Satisfaction, Value for Money, Comfort & Practicality, Environmental Friendly, and Regional Appeal.
While the Escalade is all-new for 2015, its iconic character continues on since its 1999 inception. With strong presence and proportion, the 2015 Escalade presents Cadillac’s elements in super-size form, including a shield-shaped grille, the Galvano bright trim, and the LED vertical light signatures.
“We are delighted to accept the ‘Best Large Premium SUV’ award from MECOTY,” said the Regional Brand Manager for Cadillac, Nadim Ghrayeb. “Today, MECOTY serves as a powerful platform for the Middle East’s most respected motoring journalists to bring together their in-depth knowledge and fine-tuned expertise to select the industry’s best-in-class vehicles. We are proud that the 2015 Cadillac Escalade managed to set itself starkly apart from competition. The Escalade is, after all, the benchmark among luxury SUVs with a formula of bold design, powerful capability and luxurious accommodation.”
