Ahead of tonight's reveal of the 2015 Cadillac Escalade, pictures started tumbling out via Autoblog.com. Carscoops.com snagged some screenshots of the video before it was taken down. We don't know much about the technical details yet, but the look is what you would expect from the Cadillac version the the Chevrolet Tahoe and GMC Yukon. We already saw pictures of the 2015 Cadillac Escalade interior last week.

Stay tune to CheersandGears.com for the official pictures and a video live stream of the reveal event at 7:30pm eastern time.

Update: At the moment, there is no video embed link. You can watch the reveal on Youtube. 2015 Cadillac Escalade Live Reveal

Excited to see the reveal this afternoon at 4:30pm PST, but I love what I saw on the other web sites. This is really a cool looking version of the Escalade. Better than expected.

Blocky looking. Not sure how I feel about the taillight treatment.

To me it's the best looking of the new SUVs. I love the tail lights, but I'm hoping the Euro-spec ones don't look like sh*t like the current gen's Euro-spec tail lights...

Hmmm... I think it needs visible vertical bars in the grille. And I am not quite sure about the CTS wagon-style taillights... based on the screen shots, of course.

I'm not liking the designs of these SUV's. They don't look as aerodynamic (yeah I know) as their predecessors and a little too brickish. But I suppose the more ostentatious, the better, for the Escalade.

BTW, it looks like Cadillac is not providing a Video embed link, so I'll just update this article with the Youtube link in a moment.

Embed is up http://www.cheersandgears.com/_/cadillac-news/2015-cadillac-escalade-live-reveal-r1835

I am loving the all-of-a-piece body on the new trucks and SUVs... the gaps are so tiny... the panels are so much smoother stamped than on past models. If one knows what they're looking at, they are really outstanding. Waves in the sheetmetal are all but eliminated, the stamping process has really come along... ensuring a better coefficient of drag, and a higher quality overall look to the body. GO, GM! Bravo!

Agree Ocnblu, the over all fit and finish along with the stamping process has really taken a giant step forward. I think GM has really stepped up the quality game with their latest series of trucks and SUV's and anyone that says American build junk needs to pull their head out of the Asian tailpipes.

Interior looks great from the initial pics...love the wood and brown leather...looks like it would make a comfy commuter car, a quiet smooth place for the daily grind..

      Cadillac will be unveiling the CT5 sedan at the New York International Auto Show next month. 
      The CT5 is build on the next generation of GM's Alpha platform and will come in rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive configurations.  Power will be provided by either a 2.0T 4-cylinder or 3.0 Twin-Turbo V6.  Both engines will send power to the wheels via a 10-speed automatic transmission.  The CT5  will offer Luxury and Sport trims.
      In a video series called "Sensory Symphony", Cadillac slowly peels back the specially design camouflage film to trigger an ASMR response in the viewer while slowly revealing the car. This is to bring awareness to the CT5's auditory experience with active noise cancellation and other sound optimizations. 
      The Cadillac CT5 will be built at GM's Lansing Grand River plant.

      The saying goes there is no replacement for displacement, but at Cadillac that is no longer the case when it comes to the trunk badges.  Starting in 2020 on the XT6, Cadillac will drop the engine displacement badge from their vehicles. Instead, they will use a number that represents torque in newton-meters and rounded up to the next number that ends in 00 or 50.  Turbo models will get a T, while V-series models will retain their V in place of the number.
      For the XT6, that means its 271 lb-ft of torque converts to 373 newton-meters and then gets rounded up to 400. 
      Once the scheme rolls out to other models it could look like this:
      XT4 2.0T - 350T
      XT5/XT6 3.6 - 400
      Escalade 6.2 - 600  (current model, future model could be different)
      ATS/CTS/CT6 2.0T - 400T (current model, future CT4 and CT5 could be different)
      ATS/CTS/CT6 3.6 - 400
      CTS 3.6TT - 600T
      CT6 3.0T - 550T
      If the V-series cars used the numbers, it would look like this:
      ATS 3.6 TT - 600T
      CTS-V 6.2 - 900(S?)
      CT6-V 4.2T - 850T
      Cadillac President Steve Carlisle said "We're not talking about displacements anymore. [The new badging's] purpose is to communicate power and performance, not just for internal combustion engines, but also for other propulsion."  This is a nod to Cadillac's first all-electric model coming in 2022. Cadillac has not yet revealed what letter the electric vehicles will use. The CT6 PHEV still sold in China could potentially wear a 600 badge.
      This move by Cadillac resembles Audi's move to a horsepower based naming scheme used in Europe.
      The 2020 Cadillac XT6 will be built in Spring Hill TN and will go on sale later this year.

      Currently, the least expensive way to get into a 3-row Cadillac was to pony up $76 kilo-dollars for a base Cadillac Escalade. Even then, check too many boxes on the option sheet and the price could easily head well into the $80k range.  When the Cadillac XT6 hits dealership later in couple months, that line in the sand will fall by over $20k.
      Cadillac will begin taking orders on the XT6 later this month with a base price starting at $53,690. That gets you a front-wheel drive Premium Luxury model.  The XT6 Sport with standard all-wheel drive starts at $58,090 (including destination charge for both).
      All XT6 models are powered by a 3.6 liter V6 producing 310 hp and a 9-speed automatic transmission shifting power to the wheels.  Active fuel management and Start/Stop are standard.  The Sport model features standard Continuous Damping Control suspension.
      You can read more about the Cadillac XT6 from our coverage of the reveal at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show.
