Available on Escalade and Escalade ESV (extended length), 2WD and 4WD models, the Platinum trim level offers:
18-way driver and front-passenger seating with massaging functionality and semi-aniline seating surfaces; a center console cooler that can hold six 20-ounce bottles; a rear-seat entertainment system with dual screens behind the front head restraints and tri-play capability; unique Galvano chrome grille; 22-inch premium painted wheels with chrome inserts; and power-retractable assist steps.

Prices for 2018 2WD Cadillac Escalade Platinum models start at $95,685(1) and range up to $100,390(1) for 4WD Cadillac Escalade ESV Platinum models.

Chalet: Out of the Cold, Into the Warmth - The contrasting pleasures of pulse-raising mountain slopes and the warm comfort of an après-ski lodge.

Yacht Club: The Luxury and Leisure of the Finest Yacht Clubs - Captures the magic of a light breeze and calm seas on a warm summer day.
