Guys, my 2015 has the old emblem - is there anyway I can have the dealer switch it to the new emblem?

Thanks!

Its likely only possible for the grille and likely a full grille replacement. Its not feasible on the back and there are numerous other areas on the truck (ie wheel center caps, steering wheel center, etc) where it would probably not be possible.

I think it only needs a front grill replacement as well as a rear trim replacement. The steering wheel would need a new airbag. But if you're fully tinted, it wouldn't matter.

I know I'm showing my age...I remember when the plain badge was on the lowly Sedan De Ville, and the wreath was only on the top of the line Fleetwood Brougham. I got the feeling Cadi left behind a tradition that lasted for decades when they went back to the plain badge for their top end cars. It is bigger, so I guess that compensates...

So, I actually prefer the wreath...but the wife likes the new badge...and, after all, that's what really matters!

I just checked mine. I think the back is easier. It's just a stick On.

??? The older 2015 escalades have a round imprint in the rear hatch to accept the old round escalade logo, how are you simply going to stick the new logo into the round imprint?

The whole trim including the base of the wreath is part of the assembly, I think?

I would not touch the emblems, your wife probably just doesn't like seeing the newer one and not having it on hers but do not destroy your truck please. Sell it and get a 2015i

Actually....
The plain badge used to adorn one Cadillac, the Cadillac Calais.
Remember that one?
The DeVilles had Chevrons under the badge, where the fleetwood and the Eldorado had the wreath.

I'm with you....the old badge is classier!

The old Cadillac emblem is more classy while the new one is more modern and a bit cleaner. I like both, but the more I look at the new emblem, the more I like it!

Haha @ GM4Life The new will grow on you, it accentuates the car beautifully to as where before you would just stare at this shiny wreath.

I am in the process of updating my 2014 CTS-V Coupe with the new 2015 style crest. It's gonna change the entire look of the car for the better. The old emblem reminds me of my grandparents. Not a bad thing, but it's just more of an old school look.

For some reason, the new emblems blends well with the front grilles of the new models. Tbh, I like it, but still love the old emblems.

Yep...they actually styled the grills to be a big badge shape, so it's all coordinated.

The Calais series always had the V and crest, along with the DeVilles, except in '70 and '71, when all standard Cadillacs had only the crest except for the Fleetwoods, which used the wreath as well.
