    Right now most people don't even know what exactly will be on the refresh Escalade. If the refresh gets 360 degree cameras, 4G Nav/Wifi, and the 8 speed, the only thing left for the Platinum would be upgraded cosmetic items (new leathers,wheels,paints,veneers, etc.. Since the XTS is already confirmed getting most of these additions and massage seats..... I hope either the refreshed or Platinum Escalade gets the massage seats! Although some options from the XTS don't trickle down to the Escalade a la Alacantara headliner.

    No matter what they add to the Platinum, it will not be worth what they will charge for it. GM's pricing on everything lately has been ridiculous! Cadillac really has their stuff priced with huge confidence!

    My dealer said not to expect a Platinum anytime soon. Said that when Cadillac showed them the new Escalade, the current Premium interior is what Cadillac presented as the new Platinum interior. He said all the dealers revolted and said that should be the base interior. He said the base interior Cadillac presented still had the fake wood and all. Said not to expect a Platinum before the end of the year.

    Well isn't "before the end of year" technically soon? We are only 5 months away from new years. We've all been thinking the Platinum would be orderable come September which would put it for delivery in November.


    I don't get all the belly aching about pricing. My 2012 Platinum and my 2015 Premium are the same price new. The 2015 Premium brings more to the table feature wise then the 2012 Platinum did, even if I don't like the interior as much. So in my opinion the price hasn't went up. They just got rid of the base model essentially. Is it going to be "worth what they are charging for it?" of course not, it's a a luxury item, and thus it has high margins. It's the nature of luxury goods.

    Hopefully they get rid of the crappy tan headliner that they borrowed from the 20K malibu and put in a full leather or alcantara headliner.

    The less expensive XTS has a alacantara headliner, I don't know why the Escalade doesn't.

    I guess because XTS is the flagship model. Pound for pound the XTS is more expensive.
