One thing that has always astounded me is how many Escalades Cadillac manages to sell.
In the New York Tri-State region they're pretty common vehicles. And for a glorified Tahoe, it's not all that reasonably priced as a 2014 Escalade starts at a base price of $67,970.
Well, for 2015 you better start putting your nickels and dimes in a piggy bank. That's because the 2015 Escalade will start at a base price of $71,695. Here's the kicker: all-wheel drive costs another $2,600 smackers.
To General Motors' credit, it's clear that the all-new 2015 model has more standard equipment than the old model; however, when you compare it to a base BMW X5 xDrive50i and Mercedes-Benz GL450, which start at $68,200 and $64,550, it seems a bit steep.
So, we have to ask: is GM's Cadillac Escalade priced a bit TOO RICH for the market?
