Arguably the most aspirational vehicle General Motors builds, the 2015 Cadillac Escalade is the 2015 AutoGuide.com Reader’s Choice Luxury Utility Vehicle of the Year.
The Escalade is sold exclusively with General Motors’ new Gen V 6.2-liter V8 and offers an interior that is significantly enhanced compared to the previous generation. In general, the materials are nicer than the previous generation with softer leather and the admittedly tepid CUE infotainment system. But a confusing infotainment interface didn’t seem to matter the Escalade secured its place as the award winner in its category this year.
With seven different vehicle categories voted for in this year’s Reader’s Choice Awards, Ford took home two wins including the Truck of the Year for the F-150 and the Car of the Year for the Mustang. Winners in the remaining Reader’s Choice categories include the Jaguar F-Type Coupe for Sports Car of the Year, the Subaru Outback for Utility Vehicle of the Year, the Mercedes S-Class Coupe for the Luxury Car of the Year and the BMW i8 for the Green Car of the Year.
