Cadillac Escalade MSRP Increases $8000
USA Today

If you are dropping money on a new Escalade SUV, odds are life is going pretty well for you. Hopefully life is going well enough that the bump in purchase price for the 2015 Escalade won't scare you off. Caddy has increased the price of the Escalade by about $8000 reports USA Today. The base price for the SUV is now $72,690 to start with including the $995 destination charge. That puts the Escalade at over $9000 more than some of its competitors in the luxury SUV market. The reason for the big jump in base price according to GM is the dropping of the base model of the car. That base model used to sell for $64740 but it only sold in limited quantities and was discontinued. The new Standard trim comes with a number of options that weren't offered on the old base model. The top of the line Platinum Escalade will cost $81515 to start.
