The 2015 Cadillac Escalade features LED lighting inspired by Manhattan skyscrapers and fine-cut crystal, GM said in a statement on Tuesday.    The 2015 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe can be ordered with optional headlights featuring 47 Swarovski crystals, while the 2015 BMW i8 will be the first production vehicle equipped with new laser-light headlights.
