A couple of weeks ago, General Motors took the wraps off its new Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban, along with its GMC Yukon and Yukon XL. Even the upscale Yukon Denali was there. All that was missing to get the band back together was the Cadillac Escalade, but that's on its way, too.

Cadillac has announced that the new 2015 Escalade will debut in New York, as expected, on October 7. GM's luxury marque has said little more than that, focusing instead on an artistic collaboration with photographer/filmmaker Autumn de Wilde, but we can expect the new Escalade to look pretty much like the Denali with some contemporary Cadillac design cues thrown in for good measure. Check out the two teaser images and the video below for a glimpse at what the Art & Science brand has in store.

Cadillac to Reveal 2015 Escalade with Autumn de Wilde
Images and film show the all-new Escalade in an artistic light

2013-09-23

DETROIT – Cadillac will unveil the all-new 2015 Escalade luxury SUV on October 7 with indie rock photographer and director Autumn de Wilde, who produced a series of portraits and a film highlighting the Escalade design process.

"I immerse myself in the world of my subjects. I suppose it's not unlike a method actor's approach sometimes," said de Wilde. "My job is to give the audience even more of a reason to form a crush on this person or this object."

De Wilde's vivid portraiture gives her the perfect lens with which to capture the 2015 Cadillac Escalade from an artistic perspective. The images she created highlight the sophistication, luxury, and iconic nature of the Escalade in an expression different than that of traditional automotive photography.

Says de Wilde, "As a photographer, I am searching for those iconic portraits that makes you wish you were there. I am always searching."

Autumn de Wilde's portrait series and behind-the-scenes video of her visit to the Cadillac design will be revealed at the Escalade Global Reveal on October 7 in New York City.

To RSVP for the livestream, and to stay up to date on images and videos of the 2015 Escalade, please visit youtube.com/Cadillac.

      A pointless vehicle for pointless people. Looking forward to having some douche cut me off and/or tailgate me in one on Long Island.

      The ATS, the new XTS and to finish the Escalade. You need to know what your brand identity is, european fun to drive cars or overweight boring american SUV. That Escalade is actually ruining the new image Cadillac is trying to build.

        No one cares about what the Europeans think about the Escalade, tbh. It was made for the American market, not Europe. Same with the GL and Q7.

        America used to be known for great cars and trucks way back. It's getting it respect back. Part of that is to compete with many brands and get Americans to want to buy their cars and trucks. They have to fill a broad range of models for the many interest people have. I personally would like a lux SUV and Cady is the only brand to have it. Otherwise, when I am ready I will first be looking at the QX or head to Rover dealer. Thats $60+ that the Amercian company wouldn't be able to compete for if they didn't have the item to sell.

          This is why the old boring drive Cadillac is carrying will stick to them and buyers will continue to get Audi's and Bmw's. At a certain price image matters. try to sell an expensive Hyundai, it does not work.

        Cadillac has never tried to be European.

          Wrong, the new CTS and ATS are exactly trying to be that.

      Escalade, a Suburban for people with no taste and want to be noticed for same.

      I see a lot of hate towards the Caddy but really if you look at what they have released recently with their cars I expect the best Escalade ever with an interior far better than most of the competition. It's hard to believe but having had a chance to sit in the ELR at a special event I was AMAZED at the level of quality. If that translates to this then it will be a success. Sure the rappers, etc. will flock to it, but don't forget that there are a large group of people that want a vehicle that can tow around their boats, campers, etc. and still want a luxury vehicle. I'm sure this will be far more capable then most anything else on the market in it's segment. The styling like everything else is subjective. So we'll have to wait and see.

      I love nearly everything cadillac is doing lately, but the Escalade is douchebag car of the year, not matter what they do to it, you can't own one without being labelled a douchebag. That being said, still rather be that than the owner of a prius!

      I'm hoping they've done a bit more this time that just warmed over the Yukon. I know it was a very profitable strategy the last time, but this this Cadillac's most expensive product, it really needs to be treated like a halo. The effect of the Escalade on Cadillac's brand image should not be underestimated.

        Agreed , With the new Range Rover they better bring their A-Game.

          No they don't. The new Range Rovers if you can find one are selling for well over sticker and over six figures and even then they don't have a third row or an extra long version. Cadillac does not have to do anything but put these on the lots and watch them fly off them.

        Because it sell or leases in large number to wealthy pretentious suburbanites who are willing to pour money into GM's bottom line while meanwhile thinking they are exclusive in some way compared to someone driving the similar and less expensive Chevrolet.

      Judging by the looks of its brethren, I expect a boring box with narrow headlamps and chrome wheels.

      I'm sorry, but I'm fairly excited for a new Escalade. To me, they well represent ostentatious American Luxury. I don't mean that in a bad way, but it is what it is. The Escalade isn't made for the understated crowd, and I like that. Not everyone wants an understated car. Big brass and in charge. Bring it own.

      Hope they didn't screw up the headlight like they did with the Tahoe/Suburban
