Hello folks,

My wife mentioned that the emblem on the grille of our 2006 Escalade is not as colorful
as some other emblems of Cadillac. I also noticed that it is more pastel colors than bright
color and noticably red is missing.

So my questions are:
1. Is the emblem shown in the pic then emblem the truck came with from factory?
2. Is this emblem replacable with something more colorful?

Thank you

It looks sun faded to me
You know my wife said the exaCT same thing but I laugherd it off by saying that I have seen 20yr old cadillacs that have
emblems that have not faded so how can this 9yr old emblem fade ---

So would you know what the original emblem looked like for 2006 escalade?
thank you

The cheapest replacements I have found are on ebay. Front emblems run around $80.00 rears are about $150.00. Look for an ebay seller "BiggDaddyCaddy" I believe.

Yes it sucks that 9 year old Cadillac emblems fade after just a few years, I guess they have to cut corners when selling a $65,000.00+ vehicle new! My vehicle sits in a garage most of the day and the emblems still have faded over the years.

sorry --- here is a pic of the emblem...
Yes, it is faded. Both of mine on 05 were as well when I purchased it. Look at ebay and/or amazon for replacement front. Rear a bit harder because it has to match trucks paint...think i got mine at gm parts direct. New emblems definetely improve trucks look immediately.
