I'm not opposed to giving the truck a wider stance (i.e. the fender flares) but the bumper and headlights are absolutely hideous.

Those fog lights look like they were pulled out of someone's ceiling

While the Escalade has never been noted for good taste, the Swiss rendition would probably find a solid following among certain tradesmen and their "professional girls!"

Now we know where the acronym "POS" came from.................and it's the correct colour.

If Mad Maxx rolled in an Escalade that would be it.

Looks like an International Lonestar from the front:

The side profile looks exactly like a stock escalade, and doesn't blend in with all the other crap they've done to this poor truck.

It looks like they were heavily influenced by the Lonestar in designing that...thing. The all of the front end, and the head and tail lights look like direct rip-offs. :cookoo:

Getting off topic a little, but has anybody actually seen a Lonestar on the road?? They've been out for at least 3 years now and I have yet to see one in person. Zero, zip, nadda. Personally I think its a cool looking truck, probably the most revolutionary big rig design since the Peterbilt 372 cabover.

The Lonestar design actually looks ok to me. But not on an Escalade.

That interior is simply foul.

I think I saw a grand total of ONE shortly after they came out. My favorite big rig is the Kenworth T700. It even has Xenon headlights and I believe it is the only tractor that does.
