    Have no fear, the big grilles are here. Or, at least we think they're coming. One of our spy shooters caught the next-gen Chevrolet Tahoe and Cadillac Escalade out testing with more of their fronts ends exposed than before.

    Starting with the Tahoe, we can see what amounts to a blinding amount of chrome under the wrappings. We're guessing this would be a new Tahoe High Country trim level, mirroring the range-topping trim level currently offered on the Silverado and Traverse. The Tahoe's current range topper is the Premier. Although the rather ornate details in the grille are not found on the current High Country trims, they also seem like something that would be available on the priciest Tahoe available. The same could be said of the LED lighting details visible under the camo as the Silverado High Country, shown below, does indeed have unique LED elements.

    The next-generation Cadillac Escalade only shows up in two of the photos. As we can't see shiny chrome reflecting through the camo, we're guessing the Escalade will adopt a blacked out grille similar those found on the XT6 and other Cadillacs. We can also see horizontal lighting elements similar to those on other recent Cadillacs. As this is an Escalade, however, we'd imagine everything will be supersized.

    GM will be ushering these trucks out soon, with the independent rear suspension being the big story. Besides the improved ride and handling, it should result in substantially improved cargo space and third-row legroom. Doing so would at least close the gap with the biggest Lincoln and Ford SUVs.

    Just don't make the Tahoe look like the new Blazer and Trailblazer front end pleeease.

    To me, it looks like it's going to be a mix of the outgoing Tahoe's front end mixed with the new Silverado's front end, specifically the latter's DLRs.

    Building on that, here's a 30 second freehand job (Apple Pencil is dead) to illustrate what I think it's going to look like.

    Me thinks this is the current Escalade with a CT6 Front end, The Escalade is probably going to be Escala like lighting, hopefully a very jeweled light signature and really long DLR's...

    I think the truck with that Chevrolet front end looks better than the one with the bowtie

    I hope GM makes the upcoming Escalade look less Tahoey than the current one.

    That might be a mistake, the current strategy works

    Have no fear, the big grilles are here. Or, at least we think they're coming. One of our spy shooters caught the next-gen Chevrolet Tahoe and Cadillac Escalade out testing with more of their fronts ends exposed than before.

    Starting with the Tahoe, we can see what amounts to a blinding amount of chrome under the wrappings. We're guessing this would be a new Tahoe High Country trim level, mirroring the range-topping trim level currently offered on the Silverado and Traverse. The Tahoe's current range topper is the Premier. Although the rather ornate details in the grille are not found on the current High Country trims, they also seem like something that would be available on the priciest Tahoe available. The same could be said of the LED lighting details visible under the camo as the Silverado High Country, shown below, does indeed have unique LED elements.

    The next-generation Cadillac Escalade only shows up in two of the photos. As we can't see shiny chrome reflecting through the camo, we're guessing the Escalade will adopt a blacked out grille similar those found on the XT6 and other Cadillacs. We can also see horizontal lighting elements similar to those on other recent Cadillacs. As this is an Escalade, however, we'd imagine everything will be supersized.

    GM will be ushering these trucks out soon, with the independent rear suspension being the big story. Besides the improved ride and handling, it should result in substantially improved cargo space and third-row legroom. Doing so would at least close the gap with the biggest Lincoln and Ford SUVs.
    2020 Escalade headlights are not super sized. They are actually quite discrete without being Escala like slits. It definitely won’t have a bug eyed look like the Navigator or Aviator. There are various grilles on the 2020 Escalade.

    There was only one grille design that didn’t float my boat, but as this is subjective it’s likely to appeal to some people. If Escalade gets the rear IRS, Supercruise etc the sales figures will match or exceed what they are now. Cadillac are smart in that this is an evolutionary redesign, but enough is new that it’ll definitely get punters to the showroom.

    The front is the biggest change, and the rear (the second most distinctive element on the current version) has been refined. I can’t wait until some more camouflage gets removed!
