Following the introduction of the redesigned Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra, we're expecting General Motors won't wait too much longer to show off the next-generation fullsize SUVs that share this platform – including the Cadillac Escalade. It's still not clear if the next Escalade will debut for the 2014 or 2015 model years, but Carscoops has what it claims to an exclusive first look of the new Cadillac, revealing a portion of the headlight, front fascia and wheel.
Judging from this small picture, it looks like the Escalade could incorporate styling cues that we've seen on new Cadillac models like the ELR and the 2014 CTS, but that article says that other design details could include tall, vertical taillights similar to the CTS Wagon, staggered-width wheels and a narrower daylight opening for the side windows. The last time we saw the fourth-generation 'Slade back in October in spy shots, the heavy camouflage prevented us from getting an idea of the luxury SUV's appearance, but this image and description gives us something to look forward to. Head on over to Carscoops for more potential information as well as a full rendering from back in January.

      It is so amazing when people call the Escalade ghetto. People who say so must be living in low income areas, talking out their rear end, or just have selective vision. I am from Frisco, Texas and can tell you that most Escalades I see are driven by members of successful households of the higher income areas of North Texas. Yeah I see some blinged out with chrome, 24s,and loud audio setups, but that is 5% or less of the ones I come across. As a matter of fact, I see a lot more Tahoes like that and one of my cars is a Tahoe so I am not biased. I have high hopes for the next Escalade. Hopefully the interior and features differentiate it from the Tahoe/Yukon brethren more to justify the price that it will carry. I am guessing the base model will start at $70k or more. It is also the biggest American made luxurious full size SUV with an SRA rear setup and decent tow capacity so I am all for it. I will always choose American when it is available and comparable to foreign assembled models.

      Definitely not a car that I personally have an interest in, but it is good to see GM continually update their vehicles. A lot of the hoopla for SUVs has finally died down, but there will always be a core group of enthusiasts for them, and luxury SUVs can represent high profit margins. If this new Escalade continues Cadillac's momentum in making their cars tops in their class, then the Land Rovers and other high-end SUVs should watch out. This new Escalade till probably be the most expensive car in Cadillac's lineup, so it should be loaded to the gills with every imaginable luxury and technology. With that price, there will be no excuses for it to share any exterior or interior bits with the more plebeian Suburban and Tahoe. With the way that Cadillac has been going, I have faith that they will do it right.... but then again, GM seems to sometimes fall back to its old ways of doing things like with the recently released Silverado and Sierra.

      Well just to break the ice guys. I'm black. I own a 2011 Chevy Suburban. Don't believe me just check out my Facebook Page. I bought it because the ride was much better, you can haul more, and it gets a few miles per gallon better. The Flex Fuel is a total gimmick. You can literally see the gauge drop to E. If you noticed, I have a trailer on the back because I use my truck to haul stuff. Yes I have the fully loaded 22 in alloy sunroof pi elated navigation blah... but it works. Fully paid off now. The price was $41,000 with no miles off the showroom floor at the time. I'd be damned if I paid $20,000 more for a compromised truck that didn't benefit me, so the Escalade was not for me. I'm not a loud type of person. If I wanted to ball out then I would have bought a Range and stunted on a crappy Escalade. A Range Rover can go off road, as much as I love a Caddy it doesn't go off road or appeal like a Range can. Besides. I'm not balling like I used to anyway. Three years later I'm now trying to sell this gas guzzler. Real talk, I'm thinking about getting a Toyota Highlander. Hell I might just get a Rav 4. The way gas is going, I may just end up with a Tesla. I really can no longer afford this tank. A dumb person will keep the aging truck. A real person like me will put a for sale sign on it. Oh and about all this hip hop drama. I don't look at it as racist. I look at it as ignorance. But hey, like Albert Einstein said, the most efficient thing in this world is stupidity.

        The mileage difference with either Toyota will not be able to compensate for having a car payment; plus, they'll fall apart if you use them for towing. The Pathfinder/Infinity twin, or my personal favorite, the Dodge Durango/Jeep Grand Cherokee (which get the 8-spd for 2014) would be far better options if you want a more efficient, newer SUV (that can still do SUV things).

        Giving up a paid off 2011 Suburban for a new Toyota Highlander and a car payment to save gas is the epitome of stupid. There you go, givin' it to your straight, no chaser.

      I hate reading the stupid hip hop comments because most of the Escalades out there are owned by middle aged white people. I think within 1,000 feet of my house there must literally be about at least 50 Escalades owned by business owners, doctors, dentists etc etc, all mostly white and usually fairly old. They will sell a ton of them as usual and they won't need to have the off-roading capability of a Range Rover because they will never do anything more than tow a boat or a travel trailer. I had an H2 and an Escalade over the years and all I ever did was tow my boat and that is a whole lot more than most Escalade owners will ever do.

          @ziz, not sure where you live, but I see enough Escalades here being driven by "secondary" drivers.

      At this stage in Cadillac's rejuvenation, one would hope that the next Escalade would be more than just another Suburban with a Caddy grill and a flashy set of 22s.

      Cadillac is serious about competing. with the Germans.......we can see that with the 2014 Cadillac CTS....so what makes a lot of people think they wouldn't change the formula for the escalade ?! Cadillac is bringing their "A" game for these truck as it will serve as their flagship truck......expect nothing less then amazing
