    About time. The main thing I always disliked about the V Series cars in particular was all the bright chrome trim. Looks cheap and tacky. This is much better, though I'd still prefer gloss black. 

     

    I'm back at a GM dealer that keeps a decent amount of V's in stock, and I have to say, they are growing on me. I can't wait to get the chance to drive one.

    FRISKY!! 

     

    Seems like I haven't seen much from you for awhile. Back at a GM dealership, eh? Mind if I ask which one?

    Yeah, I kinda took break from forums and stuff for a while. Just other stuff going on.

     

    I'm at Elco over here in Ballwin. I love it so far. It's a great store with awesome staff. I told myself I wouldn't go back to a GM store, but I think I made a really good decision.

    The whole monochromatic look that BMW and MB / AMG does to their performance line is what I thought Cadillac should have come out the gate with from day 1. Not everyone loves a ton of chrome. Mostly the baby boomers but they are not the large buying segment they used to be.

     

    I will admit that I love black chrome. that looks so classy on any auto. :metal:

    I could see all chrome bits being changed over to Black Chrome which gives you some flash but understated.

     

    Course for the Bright is better chrome lover, they can still go all out chrome!

      Cadillac President Steve Carlisle said that when Cadillac starts rolling out its electric vehicles, it will use actual words for model names instead of the alphanumeric scheme currently used on its cars and SUVs.  Cadillac's move away from names started in 2003 with the Cadillac CTS. Over time, the Seville and Deville were converted to STS and DTS respectively. Later, the scheme was changed to alphanumeric when Johan de Nysschen joined the company as President.
      Cadillac will be taking the lead on GM's push to introduce 20 new all-electric vehicles around the globe by 2023.  Carlisle said that by 2030, the majority, if not all, Cadillacs will be battery electric vehicles. The recently release set of vehicles, CT4, CT5, XT4, and XT5, will get one more round of refreshes before transitioning to a BEV platform late in the decade. 
      The next introduction is the Cadillac Escalade, which will be officially introduced in February, though pictures of the 2021 Escalade have already leaked online. Cadillac's SuperCruise hands-free driver-assist system will eventually be offered on the Escalade with additional functionality not currently included in the system. There are strong hints that this version of SuperCruise will include lane change ability.

      Just a day after the 2021 Suburban and Tahoe debuted the Cadillac Escalade has also leaked out online.  As expected, the side profile still looks like the Tahoe/Suburban, however it apparently does still sport the vertical tail lights of the current generation vehicle.  Inside is a decidedly upgraded interior. The gauge cluster is dual screen and flows into the infotainment system.  Like the Chevy twins, the column shifter is gone, in this case replaced by Cadillac's Precision Control Shift. A dial to control the infotainment system similar to that on the XT6 is visible as well. 

      The Escalade will be powered by the same 6.2 liter V8 offered as an upgrade in the Suburban and Tahoe, but a supercharged version could make its way into the engine room at a later date as well finally giving the Escalade a V version. Expect the same wheelbase and space increases gained on the Chevies. 
      The Escalade will be debuting officially soon, so keep it tuned here for more updates as they come out.
