2015 Cadillac Escalade Is Epitome of Craftsmanship

The history of the Cadillac Escalade includes some incredible “pimped out” models owned by rock stars and other celebrities. But now, with the 2015 Cadillac Escalade, high-class luxury will come standard.

2015 Cadillac Escalade

The fourth-generation 2015 Cadillac Escalade will be available later this year!

With the fourth-generation Escalade, designers were inspired by high-end furniture when it came to the interior design. They wanted the Escalade to feel handcrafted—and it is.

“An exceptional level of craftsmanship is found in the 2015 Escalade, and it all centers on the premium, layered materials and extensive use of cut-and-sew live stitching – the way fine furniture is produced,” said Eric Clough, director of design, Cadillac Interiors, in a statement. “We designed Escalade with what we call the beauty of contrast – a distinctive combination of bold, SUV character, but also the refinement of the Cadillac form vocabulary and technology.”

2015 Cadillac Escalade Interior

The 2015 Cadillac Escalade’s interior is comfortable and luxurious.

Inside, passengers will find real wood along with suede accents and ambient lighting. And it won’t just look good—it will feel good too. The seats use dual-firmness foam that will keep all passengers comfortable, even on long trips.

The luxurious 2015 Cadillac Escalade will be arriving at Bradshaw Chevrolet Buick GMC Cadillac later this year. Give us a call and we’ll keep you updated on all the details.

Buick Encore Turns One

There’s almost nothing cuter than watching a one-year-old demolish a cake on his or her birthday. And General Motors is now celebrating the first birthday of the Buick Encore. Though unless you’re planning on smearing cake all over your Encore (which we don’t recommend) we won’t see any messy cake-face pictures.

This first year has been a remarkable one for the Encore. It has changed many people’s perceptions of the Buick brand and has become a successful conquest vehicle—nearly half of all Encore buyers are coming from a non-GM brand.

2014 Buick Encore

The Buick Encore is now 1 year old!

In its first year, the Encore sold 97,311 vehicles worldwide. What made it so successful was its ability to stand on its own. It filled a void in the crossover segment by being one of the first luxury compact crossovers available.

“Right out of the gate, demand for the Encore was high,” Tony DiSalle, vice president of Buick marketing, said in a statement. “It accounted for most of the segment’s growth last year and that’s because it offers the right safety, technology, and features in the right-sized vehicle for many customers.”

Want to join in the Encore celebration? Come down to Bradshaw Chevrolet Buick GMC Cadillac and give the Buick Encore a try.

10% Better Mileage in New Chevy and GMC SUVs

GMC and Chevrolet are injecting a healthy dose of power and fuel economy in their new 2015 models, including the Chevy Tahoe and Suburban and the GMC Yukon and Yukon XL.

2015 Chevrolet Tahoe SUV

The 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe is one of several GM vehicles receiving upgrades to power and fuel economy this year.

Each model has taken on a new and improved standard 5.3-liter engine, returning an EPA-estimated 16 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway with two-wheel drive. This marks a hefty 7 percent city mileage improvement and an incredible 10 percent highway mileage increase, proving that even full-size SUVs can deliver on the fuel economy front.

For consumers who desire even more power from their big machines on wheels, the GMC Yukon Denali and Yukon XL Denali now feature an exclusive 6.2-liter V8 that produces a whopping 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque! You won’t find higher numbers in a full-size SUV anywhere on the market. In two-wheel drive mode, that engine offers 15 city and 21 highway miles to the gallon. Considering the power, that’s quite good!

Find all of the vehicles mentioned above, plus other great new Chevy and GMC SUVs at Bradshaw Chevy Buick GMC Cadillac in Upstate South Carolina!

Super Bowl MVP Smith Earns 2014 Silverado High Country

In case you may have missed it, Sunday night was the Super Bowl. Yeah, we know, it was easy enough to miss since it got hardly any media coverage whatsoever. In any case, there apparently wasn’t too much to miss after all: the Seattle Seahawks rode Denver all over the field like the horse that is their mascot en route to a 43-8 victory. As is customary, the MVP of the game—Seahawks linebacker Malcolm Smith—told everyone he was going to Disney World and accepted the Pete Rozelle trophy. A new wrinkle for this year, however, saw the defensive dynamo taking home an all-new 2014 Chevy Silverado High Country pickup truck.

While the entire Seattle defense—otherwise known as the Legion of Boom—could have arguably taken home MVP honors, Smith’s stat line was impressive enough for him to stand out among his comrades: he registered 10 tackles, defended two passes, recovered a fumble, and picked off a Peyton Manning pass and returned it to the house for a touchdown.

2014 Chevrolet Silverado

Super Bowl MVP Malcolm Smith was given a 2014 Chevy Silverado after the big game this year.

The High Country trim level of the already-imposing Silverado features saddle brown leather interior and unique exterior aspects including a chrome grille, body colored front and rear bumpers, and 20” chrome wheels. The High Country represents the Bowtie Brand’s first premium-level pickup and takes the already exceptional styling of its dependable Silverado 1500 to an even higher level.

Want to feel like an MVP? Stop out to see us at Bradshaw Chevrolet Buick GMC Cadillac and test drive one of our vehicles today. We’ll make you feel like a winner (yes, even you, Peyton).
