As a sign of more-gas frugal times, even the Escalade, an SUV known for is uncompromising size and power may go on a diet. The next generation large SUV from Cadillac may move to the Lambda platform.

GM currently uses the platform to build the Chevrolet Traverse, Saturn Outlook, GMC Acadia and Buick Enclave, so a Cadillac on the same platform would make economical sense. The platform should be able to handle a larger car because GM had considered, but cancelled, a V-8-powered Enclave Super. Cadillac could use a V-8, in this case a small block, since the Northstar replacement that was supposed to power the Enclave Super also has been canceled.

GM also announced the company is considering a unibody pickup as hinted by the GMC Denali XT concept, to replace the EXT and Chevy Avalanche.
