    First the Tahoe now this.
    The grill makes a statement. Why on earth would you want a small grill on a huge truck? The new grill is not flashy.

    Because at some point, it just becomes comical. In this case, it's right on the line between imposing, and cheesy.

    I had a 2002 Escalade EXT back in 02 and drove it for 3 years and put 77K miles on it. I never had one issue with it. I changed the oil and 1 foglight bulb. Thats it.

    it is derived from the ciel concept! that explains the unapologetic grille.

    Looks like the chrome is finally gone(thank God)Its a matted or brushed aluminum look like the CTS.

    I like the front end and that's it! I'm very disappointed in this guys. From the side it looks horrible and the rear looks like a Honda CRV or a Volvo. They still have that awful wheels gap and the weird stance.

    ----------

    It's just not groundbreaking like the current generation it doesn't have the wow factor

    Re: This is it

    For a second there I thought it was a beefed up Ford Expedition. They have those goofy looking grills like that.

    Definitely wont stand out like the current gen. They practically took all the class, distinction and luxury out of the look...Seems like every other large grille truck now, not so good if they think they're asking $90K



    Shame...they dropped the ball on this one....

    This definitely has the WOW factor. It looks way more streamlined and purposeful. The previous gen. looks bloated and fat. Tis new one reminds me of the 2nd Gen. More chiseled. Better presence.
