This Lambda-based Cadillac might replace the standard-size Escalade in the current lineup, according to an Inside Line report that cited a high-ranking GM executive as its source.
This Lambda-based Cadillac crossover will soon arrive at dealerships but it remains unconfirmed if it will actually replace the current Escalade or if it will be a new model to the lineup.
Various rumors have been flying around ever since GM suspended plans to revamp its lineup of full-size SUVs. It is anticipated that fuel-efficiency standards will be stricter.
The company believes that the three different versions of the massive Escalade won’t likely be able to meet these new targets. This Lambda-based Cadillac is designed with more cabin space and it has sufficient towing power to please the majority of customers.
A more traditional body-on-frame Escalade ESV will still be in the lineup for those who prefer their vehicle to have more capability.
GM recognizes that there will still be a market for full-size SUVs, making it likely that production of the Chevrolet Suburban and its Cadillac variant will continue until the next decade.[source insideline| image: theophiluschin]
