The 2017 Cadillac Escalade is an excellent SUV, and its interior is one of the best executions of Cadillac design at current. The Escalade has always felt worthy of its price tag, and like it or not, it truly is Cadillac’s status symbol.
But, Carlex thinks it can go further. The company has taken it upon itself to further dress up the Escalade’s interior duds with a bespoke redesign. The company says, “a beautiful car interior is also like music: its elements must be like a symphony. A symphony of class and good taste.”
While it looks properly posh, we do think it’s a bit… overboard.
The custom leather, done in multiple textures, looks plump and luxurious, but also busy, distracting from what makes the Escalade’s factory interior design so pleasant. Carlex has even wrapped the steering wheel and dashboard in the same stitched leather.
We’re sure it’s a nice place to be, but the Escalade isn’t at the top of our list when it comes to certain Cadillacs in need of an interior redesign… *cough* ATS *cough*.
