I liked the new Wiper arms and Blades on the 2015 Escalade. I put them on my 09 and they fit perfectly. I had Bosh and the like, however they all kept the arm above the blade. On the 2015 blade the arm is almost flush with the blade, nice look, nice wiper blade. About $14- each from dealer. :cool2:

Sorry, I only replaced the blades on the factory arms, I don't think my post was clear. Just the blade is needed, the existing arm fits nicely in the newer style blades.

I need new blades so pics would be awesome. Also, does the passenger wiper actually wipe the whole way down? I hate that any blade style wiper I try leaves an area unwiped in the bottom right corner of the windshield. It's like the windshield is curved too much and the blade doesn't touch.

Will try to take Pic's. I did not check to see if it will get that corner, but I know exactly what you are talking about. I have tried several different blades over the years, the newer style Bosh Icon and the like, however, they all have the connection where the Wiper connects to the Arm about 1/2" above the Blade. The newer blades for the 2015 integrate right into the blade housing itself for a very clean look.

Yes, that looks exactly like it and that's a Great Price! The blade still does not get to the very bottom end on the right, it floats off just a bit, less than a 1/2 inch. The Blades look great on the factory arms. Having the end of the arm buried inside the blade instead of sticking up over the top looks great. Even from inside the truck looking out, they look very sleek. The 2015 has a redesigned arm that is a little straighter. I'm happy the fit, I've tried all different blades and like these the best. I'm sure you will be extremely happy with them. They even have a little aero edge on them, subtle, but its there. Also, great for the Winter, not many places for the snow and ice to stick. I think I'm going to order a set from the link. I usually change the blades every year. for $9- ea. its worth it. Local dealer wants $44- pr. Thanks for posting the link!
