So the body style will be same? Also the navi updates, that seems like it can be updated on the older models too.

When do you think there will be pics to see these things? Is there anyway to get the appearance package on a reg escalade?

All 1SC Premium Collection Utilities will have this new exterior appearance as standard for 2012 - both short and long wheelbase models.

It will be a late start (late November production), so I'd expect to see images in the late August / early September time period.

What is navigation guide lines? What does that do?

I'm assuming you mean the rear view camera guidelines. They are self explanatory. I won't jump down gm's throat for not having them before hand. Because oddly enough they are not available on Lexus LX570 as of yet.

Any chance of seeing a pic of the new black platinum interior? I am ordering one anyway, just would be nice to see before I get it. :)

They should have a black chrome, hyperblack or shadow chrome option for all the bling that is on this vehicle to tone it down a bit.

My Cadillac dealer showed me color swatch folder for the 2012 Cadillac Escalade. It shows an additional new color available: Xenon Blue Metallic and says it will be a "late introduction date." The brochure was for the Cadillac 2012 Escalade, so it must be correct.

Has anyone else heard this? And I wonder when/where we'll be able to see that color.

Unfortunately I have not seen that this color would be added to the 2012 Escalade. Currently I only see it on the 2012 SRX. I do not have any pictures of the color either. Sorry I can't be of more assistance this situation.

@JBS123

The current list of colors for the 2012 Escalade are the following:

Black Raven
Gold Mist Metallic
Black Ice Metallic
Crystal Red Tintcoat
White Diamond Tricoat
Radiant Silver Metallic
Mocha Steel Metallic

The above post is correct, that blue color is only showing under the SRX.

Pics of new center console lid? I have an 07 and hate the center console lid on mine since it has no indention like Esky Platinum edition where you can put your phone/other things in.

I actually HELD the Cadillac 2012 paint chip 11" x 17" brochure from the owner of the dealership in my hands that showed Xenon Blue Metallic as a "late introduction" color for the 2012 Escalade.

They need direct injection in this day and age. I can't believe they are using the same engine 5yrs later.

Could be a possibility, but the paint chip samples could have been a generic book for all Cadillac models. I have a few GM sources and they don't see that color in their systems yet. Usually the information is available internally at GM before it hits the dealers.

But hey you should go back to the dealer and ask if you can pre-order the vehicle in that paint and see what he says LOL :)

Hi Elizabeth,

Does this mean the 2012 Platinum will not have the chrome grill but will have a body color grill, handles etc.

ESV's have a new rear bumper with dual tips?????? I can't wait to see that!!!

We got 9 units in the other day for a GM special event and they are very sharp looking with the paint matched door handles, grills, hood cap and side vents. Rear stop lamps look more like clear lamps from the rear and red from the sides. High mount is also clear. The exhaust exists through the rear bumper from a single muffler that takes the place of the spare tire. Rear looks like a Lexus LS car where the exhaust exists with a small chrome trim outlining the exhaust outlets. I was going to get some pictures but when I got around to doing it they were already picked up. The only thing I thought was odd is the platinum wheels are machined with a grey paint inside the spokes and clear coated. The wheels looked nice until we put the CHROME center caps on them. First one I guessed they boxed them wrong but every one was the same way.

These are the 2012 1SC Premium Collection vehicles you were prepping for the Texas Team Escalade Charity event. The event URL has a nice shot of the grille. I like it.

The Platinum does not get these changes, only the Premium Collection utilities. The Platinum does get the revised rear fascia with dual exhaust outlets.

Xenon Blue is coming to the Escalade for 2012 - utilities first, EXT early next year. This color was actually used on the XLR in the past, so just google "xenon blue XLR" and you'll get a good representation of the color.

Carl-

What are you going to do for an exhaust system now? ;)

hcvone
09-26-11, 07:24 AM
It appears that this new dual exhaust, that is really single exhaust thru one muffler, is only on the ESV, because my two 2012 standard length platinums have the standard exhaust, which of course has been replaced, I would have been pretty upset if my trucks had this system with all the exhausts I have. :)

Does anyone know if they have push button start or an intelligent key?

They make it aftermarket now. But I'm in no hurry to rewire anything right now...

Interesting... So, as in the picture above, that dual outlet design is only available on the ESV? That looks like a regular Escalade in the pics. I guess I'll keep my 2009... At least I will have the rain-sensing wipers that I love.

Yea it is an ESV if you blow the pic up you can read it on the door, and the rear door is full size, not the little 3/4 door I have. No my 12's are the same as the 11', which are the same as the 2007's in terms of push button start. :( and if you read the order info it says the same thing that it's only on the ESV

Maybe just me, but this new Escalade is looking a little too "street" for me.
