With the fourth-generation Cadillac Escalade set to go on sale in April, Cadillac has released the pricing data for its fullsize luxury SUV. While there's no retail configurator yet, the data posted on AOL Autos – and confirmed by Cadillac – shows that the 2015 Escalade will have a starting price of $71,695 (*not including $995 for destination).

This new starting price is about $8,000 more than the outgoing model, but Cadillac is quick to point out that the latest 'Slade is packed with more standard equipment in the new base Standard trim that actually puts it more on par with the midlevel Premium trim on the 2014 model (currently priced at $73,245). These new standard features include Magnetic Ride Control, LED headlights and taillights and 20-inch wheels.

Stepping up to the 2015 Escalade Luxury, the price increases to $75,695 and includes added equipment like 22-inch wheels, head-up display, power fold-and-tumble second-row seats and safety systems such as forward collision warning and lane departure warning. The top-rung 2015 Escalade Premium will start at $80,195 adding features such as a rear-seat entertainment system, illuminated exterior door handles and the Driver Assist Package consisting of front and rear automatic braking and adaptive cruise control.

All starting prices are for the rear-wheel-drive models, but buyers can still opt for all-wheel drive across the lineup for an additional $2,600.

      GM's profit margins must be huge on this truck.

      I really dislike the Escalade on principal, but that actually looks pretty cool. With that being said, when I sat in an older escalade at an auto show and then got into a Lexus LX, I was blown away at the difference in interior quality. Hopefully, new GM will continue their trend of totally overhauling their interiors to bring them into the realm of acceptability for luxury vehicles.

      It's astonishing the price disparity between America and Canada on these behemoths. The GM dealer I work for routinely sells Escalades for $90-100k CAD, with "Platinum" models going for more than $110k, before fees and taxes. I could never understand why ANYONE would pay that much for a glorified Yukon... $71k for the new model is more palatable, but I'll be interested to see if that carries to the Canadian market.

        its all the more amazing now that both dollars are pretty much equal. here in Arizona, we see a lot of Canadians taking US cars back to Canada with them. Infiniti encourages it.

      Everyone is complaining about the Escalade being a dressed up Tahoe...which it basically is. But did everyone forget that the Cayenne is a dressed up Touareg, the LX570 is a dressed up Land Cruiser, the Infiniti...whatever it's called now is a dressed up Nissan Patrol, etc. etc. I personally prefer the Range Rover for its equal parts off road ability and luxury. But it's quite a bit more expensive than an Escalade, historically less reliable and less capable from a space and workhorse standpoint. So the Escalade serves a purpose in the marketplace and appeals to wealthy people of all backgrounds, not just the hood rich balla types that idiots on this blog try to stereotype it with.

        They are two different things and I love both ones much, even if I'm European I would split for the USA one, for the lateral linear design, it host sexyest girls and it's istitutional.

      I am curious about the price difference between Escalade and Escalade ESV

      I'm surprised that Cadillac picked April to start selling the '15 Escalade. Now that's what I call a jump start on the competition.

        The new theory is "Ship them when they are ready", and the old one was getting older.

      I'm a HUGE Cadillac fan and I would even pass on this (but not the upcoming RWD S-class fighter!)

      Note that the Escalade is in the gallery below the article and the Escalade ESV, which is more money and almost 19 feet long is in the top photos. The ESV is the same size as the 1959-60 regular series Cadillacs

      Odd that they kept the wreath on the Escalade.

        I prefer the wreath so much more than the New logo.

      Say what you want- this is the perfect work-road--trip vehicle. Would never own one but would always run to it as a company car.

      3 years until it becomes a drug dealer car.

        What? Drug dealers "buy" their cars?
