We’re still trying to pick our jaws off the ground thanks to the ever so luxurious cabin of the Bentayga. It really blew us away and is easily one of the best interiors in the premium SUV segment. But, what if we were to say the Escalade is right up there too? You might raise an eyebrow, even if it were the top spec Platinum trim, but the Cadillac has been given a brand new look by Carlex Design.

The tuner, that specializes in creating and designing one-of-a-kind car interiors (they’ve previously done a Panamera, Corvette Z06 and Nissan GT-R), has worked its magic on the big SUV making what was an already very lavish cabin even posher. Featuring a predominantly black look with a mixture of high-end woven leather and Alcantara, along with wood trim on the steering wheel, dash, centre console, and door panels, we have to say it now stands out even more. Carlex, which describes the Escalade as a “luxury cheeky gangsta beast”, has also adorned the steering with its logo and silver flakes on the wood trim. The exterior has been left alone as has the drivetrain meaning the 6.2-litre V8 still makes 420 horses, not that it needs anymore.

Cadillac believes the Escalade is the most luxurious SUV from the US and if you don’t agree, well, Carlex just might have swayed you. The company’s Twitter account describes the interior as, “A symphony of class and good taste!” Or, it might have just put you off altogether…
