The monster luxury SUV you've all been waiting for is finally here, and the 2015 Cadillac Escalade ($TBA) is better than ever. Under the roof you'll find an interior wrapped in leather and wood from front to back, a quieter ride due to a stronger body structure, sound dampening, and Bose Active Noise Cancellation technology. Under the hood a 420 horsepower 460 lb-ft torque 6.2-liter V8 pushes both the two-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive variants, while variable-assist power steering and cylinder deactivation help it get more miles between fill-ups. The dash is also crammed with tech — a 12.3-inch digital gauge display and an eight-inch center screen connect you with the car, using touch and gesture recognition, proximity sensors, and voice recognition. Choose between standard, luxury, and premium models to add 22-inch wheels, driver awareness technology, and a driver assist package.
When you want the performance of a modern truck, but don't like the bulky appearance of most trucks today, sometimes the only option is to go with a rebuilt classic like the Legacy Dodge Carryall ($160,000) (from the guys who brought you this). After completing a stage three restoration — returning these trucks to the way they looked coming off the factory floor — they undergo an impressive modernization. They feature an updated interior with modern safety and climate features, as well as modern suspension, brakes, and power train (choose from a 425 horsepower V8 or a 3.9-liter Cummins turbo diesel). They're each finished off with a beautiful rotisserie paint job, in colors like flame red and army gloss green.
