Spy photographers have nabbed our first look at the 2014 Cadillac Escalade. The luxury SUV is set to ride on the new GMT900 truck platform will underpin next-generation General Motors workhorses like the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra. While the machines in these photos are heavily camouflaged, we can see the truck will bow with front fascia akin to what we've seen from both the Cadillac XTS and ATS, albeit on a much larger scale. LED accent lighting stretches from each headlamp all the way down to the lower bumper, and a massive, tight-mesh grille looks to be part of the package as well.
Under the hood, the Cadillac Escalade will continue to offer buyers a V8 option, though word has it the company's engineers may also be hard at work on new twin-turbo V6 based on the current 3.6-liter unit. A next-generation CTS with that same mill has already been spotted in development.
Automobile(s): 2011 CTS-V Coupe (gone, but not forgotten)
Re: Cadillac News: 2014 Cadillac Escalade on the prowl
With the all-new Range Rover moving way up in price, and Yukon Denali doing well -- actually with all Denali models doing well-- Cadillac has a prime opportunity to take Escalade into true flagship territory. Yes, I know a sedan shoud be a flagship, but the Escalade IMHO started the Cadilac rebirth, brought back the brand cred, and proved that bling is a definable, defendable white spac in the category. Considering how laser focused the ATS is, I'm hoping GM is committed to making this another breakout hit.
