GM Media Release

2009 Cadillac Escalade PlatinumDramatic design and cutting-edge technology drove the Cadillac Escalade to the top of the large luxury SUV category, and the Escalade is set to extend that leadership thanks to the launch of the new ultra-luxury Platinum Edition. Offering even more segment-first technologies, this flagship car will hit Middle East showrooms in the final quarter of 2008.

Cadillac's Escalade Platinum is the fullest expression of the brand's dramatic design, luxury and technology. The Escalade Platinum will be one of the most technically advanced SUVs with the addition of segment-first LED headlamps, offering greater lighting with reduced energy, and the world's fastest-acting suspension - Cadillac's Magnetic Ride Control, which gives more precise body motion control.

Escalade sports a sleek, clean and athletic form with improved aerodynamics. It is instantly identifiable as a Cadillac and incorporates styling cues from Cadillac's landmark Sixteen concept vehicle, including a detailed signature grille, front fender vent ports and layers of chrome accents.
