    It looks interesting and very modern. The finished product should be something to take this to the next level by the looks of it. And I await more.

    This is what I shared with Charley ( Z284ever ) on May 8th of this year (I thought for sure it was a Suburban)

    Well, I didn't actually drive it, but close......... It was in a Dyno Lab at MPG, I was driving it on a simulator. It was heavily wrapped, but full view of most of the interior/dash, because I was tasked with maintaining speed, keeping my eyes on the road and in-between the lines, while using infotainment functions. Touch/Scroll/Swipe Screen and rotary knob control on the center console.

    I was a high-end trim model, based on the power running boards and "pillow-pod" leather seats.

    The dash/center console reminds me of the LaCrosse, has the stupid joystick shifter (no column shifter!)

    So the screen is wider, but not taller, also the other notable item; FULL-digital instrument cluster, that is not recessed, the same plane as the infotainment screen, basically inches from your knuckles as you grip the wheel, and flows to center of dash.

    I couldn't see a lot of it, all wrapped-up, but what I could see looked production ready.

    It is going to be expensive. Hopefully, it finally puts the Range Rover in its place.

You can get a new Navigator (Black Label), loaded, for around $103-105K................. so it wouldn't surprise me at all.
    I dont think itll push that high, expect it to line up trim for trim with the Navigator price wise. Go too high, you'll end up losing sales to someone looking to save 15 grand on the Black Label if you push the Platinum to $120k

    It’s a moving target as the Full fat Range Rover replacement is only about two years away. Just going by the lovely stillborn Range Rover SV Coupe, the new Range Rover will be gorgeous and will ooze restrained class. With that being said, the Escalade has the potential to poach sales from most of the heavy hitters in this segment.

    There should be top of the Range Escalades, Black Wing Twin turbo Hand Built.. and an all electric Escalade with 500 miles plus, then and only then, we can achieve world peace

    They need to lose the Platinum designation for their top of the range models now that Nissan and Ford also use it. And I can't see Escalade topping the RR Autobiography which costs $225K right now. And their is a new one coming.

    Lol, Navigator never has been a real threat. The new one has a nice new interior, but the Escalade still routinely smokes it in sales.

    I wouldn't use sales as a barometer of quality, the Current gen Navigator is a better overall, read as advanced, vehicle than the current slade. With the next gen slade expect that to swing the other way.

    I mean...the XTS outsells the CT6, would you say its better?

    Ford let Navigator (and Expy) wither on the vine for way too long from '07 on until the '18 redesign. Escalade, meanwhile, had consistent updates, and grew a now built-in customer base. Much like the larger Lincoln/Cadillac/"luxury market in general" comparison, it's going to take years if not decades of consistent high quality/well executed product for them to gain back lost ground. Short of Caddy completely ignoring Escalade for a decade, it won't happen overnight.

    I think the horizontal chrome strip at the base of both OLED screens is fake. It's just some chrome tape to confuse people.

    I doubt this is a big concern. The Escalade has enough cachet to justify a $15k markup over the Navigator and still maintain a big sales lead at the upper end. People shopping the highest trim are typically not that price sensitive. You see this with the S-class vs. 7/A8 etc. as well.

    The base price will be more important. If the base price is much higher than the Navigator, that will lose more sales as that will be a consideration for people barely trying to reach this tier of vehicles.

    If I were pricing the Escalade line, I'll keep the base close to the Navigator but will go significantly higher at the top end, possibly by up to $25k or so. Of course, this assumes the vehicle is competitive (and not like the Aviator vs. XT6).

    Point taken...we'll see how it shakes out, it's a safe assumption that it will be class leading since Lincoln shot first and Cadillac has had time to evaluate what baseline they needed to exceed. Queston is now, is how high they're going to go w/ whatever special package they plan on rolling out. Blackwing(still a stupid name)/V/etc
