The Advanced Lighting on the 2015 Cadillac Escalade

For the 2015 Cadillac Escalade, greatness is in the details.

Small things, like exterior lighting, might seem unimportant to other vehicles, but these details separate the iconic SUV from other offerings. Drawing inspiration from historic cars and iconic architecture, the lighting designers made the lighting one of the most impressive aspects of an already extraordinary vehicle.

The Detailed Lighting in the 2015 Cadillac Escalade

According to Exterior Lighting Design Manager Martin Davis, the powerful SUV took inspiration from a wide range of sources, including skyscrapers and past Cadillac vehicles.

One of the biggest design inspirations for the 2015 Escalade’s lighting was the Hearst Tower in New York City. The easily-recognizable tower has triangular windows, separating the building from almost any other skyscraper. Davis said the interplay of metal and glass on the Hearst Tower was something he wanted to replicate in the lighting of the 2015 Cadillac Escalade.

The combination of glass and metal in the 2015 Escalade lighting gives the appearance that the lighting fixtures are floating in free space and give the lens an appearance of a fine-cut crystal.

Vertical lighting, a Cadillac tradition, also played a heavy influence on the Escalade. Davis and his team extensively studied past models, especially the 1967 Eldorado and Deville sedans. During their time, these vehicles were the standard of the world, making them an obvious marker for modern design characteristics.

“We wanted something that conveys an artistic integration of technology for the front daytime running lights and the taillights.”

– Martin Davis, Exterior Lighting Design Manager

The 2015 Cadillac Escalade’s exterior holds a total of 142 LEDs that provide functionality and beauty. With an entirely new design, aided by the intelligent use of LED lighting, the 2015 Escalade is instantly recognizable as the most iconic and impressive SUV available.

Inside and out, the 2015 Escalade is built for luxury and power. Along with a refined, luxurious interior, the exterior lighting design helps the 2015 Cadillac Escalade continue its tradition of highly-detailed designs.
