General Motors Company (NYSE:GM) and its Cadillac brand will unveil the 2015 Cadillac Escalade from New York on Oct. 7, 2013. A reveal live stream will begin at 7:30 p.m. EDT, 4:30 p.m. PDT, and fans from around the world can get their first look at the 2015 Cadillac Escalade, which will hit showrooms next spring.
While GM and Cadillac have kept the 2015 Escalade mostly under wraps, revealing only the SUV's interior, badge and headlight, there have been some leaks prior to the Monday reveal. CarScoops has photos of the vehicle from a video that was uploaded to AOL's Autoblog.com video channel. Leading up to the reveal, Cadillac has focused on the luxury, style and craftsmanship of the new Escalade in promos including an ad campaign directed by Autumn de Wilde, who has worked with Elliott Smith, The White Stripes, Wilco and The Flaming Lips. The new Escalade's design continues the "Art and Science" concept that has shaped the design of recent vehicles released by GM.
According to GM, the interior "combines luxurious handcrafted elements with state-of-the-art advanced technology. The new design takes advantage of Cadillac’s cut-and-sew interior craftsmanship technique, enabling precisely elegant surfacing of the instrument panel and door areas." As for the exterior, CarScoops says it is reminiscent of a classier GM Yukon Denali, with a sharper front and rear. Not much else is known about what will be under the hood other than that the SUV will feature a body-on-frame design.
More details about the 2015 Escalade will be revealed during the unveil. The live stream from New York can be viewed below starting at 7:30 p.m. EDT, 4:30 p.m. PDT.
