Hello Everyone...

I can finally afford and Escalade, but I'm contemplating on waiting for the new shape to come out. Does anyone know when the shape will change? some say 2012, some say 2014, any inside info about this? thanks in advance...

Umm, well prior history: the GMT800 shape SUVs were from 2000-2006 with the escalade being 2002-2006. I would guesstimate the GMT900s will be in production years from 2007-2013. Maybe they will release it at a north american auto show in 2012.


Production of a lamda platform cross over is in the work right now. Maybe that could be the new escalade, but I wouldn't being a buyer of it.

With seeing the new insane fuel standards coming in 2016 the Escalade may look like a Yugo by then :(

Is this article old or newish? I wonder if it will be a smaller escalade or not. Will the third row seats fold flat, who knows, but I am sure GM wants to portray themselves as green peace keepers from now on and most of their SUVs will be earth friendly....just thinking aloud here...

I think next gen escalade was approved on a truck base.
But it might have been changed since crazy fuel economy standards are going thru.
Who knows !!!!
