    It would appear I lost my edit abilities, so I guess even if you start the thread, you only have a certain amount of time/days to edit.
    I will check with a mod/admin to see if they can grant me edit privileges considering how I'd like to update the list.
    In the mean time keep the info coming.

    EDIT - Heard from an admin that the edit feature is fleeting, however keep the info coming as it will be manually updated

    The Mid year changes are like what has been said-I just bought one .Here is the official post...
    The 2015 Cadillac Escalade has received numerous important interim-model updates, but until recently, only the pre-update models could be found on dealer lots. 2015i (interim) Escalades will be fairly hard to come by for the time being, but dealer supplies will become more abundant over the next month or so.

    The most important update Cadillac’s 2015i Escalade has received is General Motors’ all-new 8L90E eight-speed automatic transmission, replacing the outgoing 6L90E six-speed. There’s also a load of new technologies such as OnStar’s 4G LTE Wi Fi hotspot, Siri Eyes free, wireless charging and Surround View, which provides an overhead view of the car and its surrounding area.

    In addition to the myriad of powertrain and technology updates, 2015i Escalades are available in Platinum Collection trim. They can also be spotted fairly easily, as all versions will be sporting Caddy’s more modern shield logo.

    Did they already come with the kick open tail gate as the Tahoe, Suburban and Yukon did not until 2015i.

    Well mine has it, but I discovered it by accident, not realizing the fob had to be on you when you attempted it.
    That is the good news.
    The bad news is that mine will not kick close. I know it is suppose to because I have seen videos Escalades doing so, but mine does not for some reason.

    I just checked my 2017 Tahoe Premier and it works both ways. I don't think they would have changed the way it operates.

    Another major difference (not certain if it was already mentioned) is an actual transfer case which is a huge improvement for off road and deep snow. The AWD in the 07 to early 2015's is absolutely horrendous. Works ok in a few inches a snow but there is nothing like 4wd or 4lo!

    The 2015i emblem on the grill blends way better.
