Escalade Launch

Dear Media Colleague,

On behalf of Cadillac and the entire team that designed and engineered the all-new 2015 Cadillac Escalade, I welcome you to Bluffton, South Carolina.

This southern, coastal town nestled between Savannah, GA and Hilton Head, SC, provides the perfect scenery and terrain for experiencing every feature of the all-new Cadillac Escalade.

From the precisely designed interior to the unmatched driving performance, your drive through South Carolina’s “Low Country” will show you the fourth-generation Escalade has set the bar for craftsmanship, both inside and out.

We hope you enjoy your drive time in Bluffton, and if there’s anything the Cadillac Communications staff can do to help you during your visit, please don’t hesitate to ask.
