A few days ago Cadillac confirmed plans for a large crossover based on the GM’s Lambda platform architecture. Recent rumors suggest that this new model might replace the larger Escalade.

Now, you might say that these are two totally different models, but because Cadillac will have to focus on the more stringent fuel-efficiency standards on the way, the Escalade may need to be replaced anyway. Enter the large crossover.

The new model will offer more interior space and should tow enough to satisfy most owners in the class. However if you really must have more capability, a more traditional body-on-frame Escalade ESV will remain in the lineup. Sources also say the new crossover will have the face of the 2010 Cadillac XTS Platinum Concept unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show this year.

Stay tuned!

I agree, they lessen it’s size to lessen it’s fuel consumption and to make it more eco-friendly SUV..

If this next Cadillac Escalade will look like this, I think this will achieved success on the market.

To GM: Enough with the badge-engineering already!

And I thought that the gaudy Escalade couldn’t get any uglier...
