First reaction to the pix: :puke:

Reaction after considering GM's bad photography -and- reading the specs: Meh... Might actually be pretty cool!

The similarity to the Yukon is amazing... By the way, did you ever notice that the front quarter panels on an Escalade are the same as on a Yukon, except for the "vents" on the Escalade...

Looks good on paper, but looks like a Yukon with turkey-neck in the photos. Drop the bodykit for something with some actual Cadillac class, then give it the V-rated label.

<_< Your all full of BUNK!!! THis is AWESOME!!! :idhitit:

I hate the current look of the Yukon and not really thrilled with the new Escalade look. THis is a great mesh of the two. This will sell if they make it.

The only thing is they need a CHROME DELETE OPTION! That big Chrome Brick in the back sucks as does the chrome on the mirrors and especially down the middle of the doors. Let the Chrome wheels and roof rack be the accent along with the fender vents, not all this add bling crap. Makes it look like a pimp mobile.
