    2021 Cadillac Escalade: Here’s what we think it will look like

    Lincoln redesigned the Navigator a few years ago, giving it an improved ride, stunning exterior, and an interior that's nothing short of opulent. As it stands now, the older Escalade just isn't as refined as the Navigator, but Cadillac will have the chance to catch up when it introduces the next-generation SUV next year.

    So what should we expect? The Escalade will likely share front end design cues with other new Cadillacs such as the CT5, CT6, XT4, and XT6. That should mean slender headlights and a similar shield-like grille shape, although the grille will be much larger than on other Cadillacs. Also, don't expect the three-row SUV to give up its boxy figure. The square-shaped rear should look more sculpted than the old model, and it will likely continue to adopt vertical taillights. Check out these exclusive renderings for a better idea of how we think Cadillac's next-gen flagship SUV will look.

    Since Cadillac has been adding more horizontal elements to their tail lights I think the Escalade will follow suit so not sure on that rendering. Also not a fan of the front end styling looks way too soft should be more aggressive but that's just me.

    That was my first impression, too...not aggressive enough! Needs to be more "in your face"!

    A actually like that, now all they need is to create a variant which drops the 3rd row, fastbacks the rear, w/ a LT4/5 and charge $75K more.

    Also a fan of how the front is emulating the CT5 and not the XT6...please let this be more accurate than not.

    Though it's a very well done composite, the image appears to be a CT5 front clip applied to a barely altered current Escalade.

    It's not entirely inaccurate, possibly 85% correct. Headlights are wrong (much smaller in reality)but it does give a good idea of what to expect.

    Re: 2021 Cadillac Escalade: Here’s What We Think it Will Look Like - MotorTrend

    This looks like the current Escalade with a new front end. I'm in agreement with the above that there will be a change to the tail lights. Though the front end is in line with the rest of the Cadillac line-up, it doesn't seem brash enough to be the Escalade. But, I've said many times before, I don't think the new A&S photographs well (or photoshops in this case). Also, part of the Escalade's look is from its sheer size giving it substantial presence - something that doesn't come through in a picture.

    Why don't we merge this and the other what we think the 2021 Escalade looks like thread?

    Keep in mind that his render is at best an educated guess, and at worst a complete fallacy.
    I want a car so violent that the mere thought of full throttle would cause a heart attack. That actually going wide open throttle in would result in nothing less than instant death!

    That doesn't look too bad. I kind of like the softer looking grille.

    Did they show you the interior? The exterior is a solid 9. I would give it a 10, but their is one aspect of the side DLO that some might find controversial. It's possible that particular detail could have changed since I saw it. That interior will surely surface in Spy Shots soon. Heck GMA promised as much, but nothing surfaced.
