Hi, I am new to the forum, but wanted to know does anyone know when the next re-design is due for the escalade?
I desperately want GM to re-design the 3rd row and make it like the Navigator!!
I am so tired of schlepping my seats in and out meanwhile my mother in law can hit a button and lower hers flat. I really LOVE my Caddy, this is my 3rd Escalade but in considering my next purchase in 2014, the crappy 3rd row design of the Escalade will be certainly be a factor.
Any opinions or insight?
Thanks in advance!!

Welcome to the Forum :) 2014 probably as a 2015 model, personally I hope they keep the 3rd row the same way, I take my 3rd row out and it does not go back in until the truck is sold, I would rather not carry around the extra weight, and I personally don't like anything from the Navigator, but that's just me ;) The folding back seats is the deal breaker? For me it was the fact that the Navigator can not get out of it's own way, and handles poorly.

the new 2014 escalade should be revealed at the NAIAS in Detroit in January (it is in January, right?)

GM has always been very good at keeping a lid on the future escalade redesigns (i don't think any of the redesigns have been leaked or any spy shots of them)

but anyway, i would be shocked if there wasn't a new escalade at the 2013 NAIAS

So you think they are going to do like they did when the 07' came out in Feb 06', they only made a few 06' Escalade's that year

no clue about that ... if they were happy with how that worked out in '06 then maybe
