The all-new 2015 Cadillac Escalade – set to arrive in showrooms across the Middle East in August 2014 – is already proving to be a huge success amongst Qatar’s consumers.
According to Mannai Automotive, the exclusive dealer of Cadillac in Qatar, the pioneering vehicle has received a staggering amount of pre-orders in the last three months.
This high level of demand is largely attributed to the flagship SUV’s redesigned exterior and interior, which combines new levels of luxury with the latest technology.
“The all-new 2015 Cadillac Escalade is strongly resonating amongst consumers, as reflected by the increased number of pre-orders across key dealerships in the region,” said Felix Weller – Vehicle Sales, Service and Marketing Director for Cadillac in the Middle East. “The sophisticated luxury SUV – designed to establish new benchmarks for hand-tailored craftsmanship and technology – both meets and exceeds customer expectations, delivering an unparalleled driving experience for the most discerning car enthusiasts. The massive amount of interest in the 2015 Escalade is further testament to the Cadillac brand’s impeccable reputation here in the Middle East.”
Mr. Mohamed Helmy, Group General Manager, Mannai Automotive, echoed that statement, adding: “Our customers recognize the importance of selecting a powerful vehicle with an extensive roster of revolutionary features. The all-new Cadillac Escalade’s fast-rising popularity here in Qatar comes as no surprise: the model takes the luxury SUV to new heights thanks to its remarkable performance and groundbreaking specs.”
The 2015 Escalade takes design and technical elements from Cadillac’s product expansion to elevate the brand’s signature SUV. The product line will consist of the standard Escalade model, as well as the extended-length ESV edition, which offers a 14-inch-longer (355 mm) wheelbase and approximately 20 inches (508 mm) more in overall length, maximizing space for third-row passengers and 60 percent more cargo space behind the third-row seat.
Offered with 4WD drivetrain, the 2015 Escalade features a new 6.2L V-8 engine that is more powerful and more efficient than previous models. It also boasts Cadillac’s Magnetic Ride Control – the world’s fastest-reacting suspension system.
The exterior features crisp, new and more sophisticated surfaces, accented by dramatic light-emitting diode, or LED, lighting. In parallel, the new interior features cut-and-sewn and wrapped materials, with wood trim options chosen for elegance and authenticity. Seats were engineered to be more comfortable and sculpted in appearance. In addition, the new interior is dramatically quieter thanks to a stronger new body structure, new and enhanced acoustic material, and Bose Active Noise Cancellation technology.
CUE, Cadillac’s advanced system for connectivity and control, is also standard, featuring state-of-the-art voice recognition with touch controls common with the world’s most popular tablets and mobile devices.
