    Chevrolet Escalade?

    I saw this on the way to work. It's a Suburban airport limo -- with Escalade taillights. I just thought it was odd, especially since it's a fleet car.

    Customized, I've always wondered about doing this, looking at them side-by-side, I don't think there is much different between the two.

    I saw a Suburban with Escalade tails the other day here too. I wonder how easy it is to swap them...probably just pull the Suburban lights and molding off and pop the Escalade ones in.

    Front end they do a great job differentiating, but to me the side and back of the Escalade & Suburban are way to similar. I know the huge greenhouse makes things difficult to differentiate, but certainly more can be done vs. their current practice.

    I think they're pretty snazzy and gives the Chevy a little class.

    If that doesn't then maybe this should:



    Though I think it's pretty cool, there's one like it near me.

    There's a hacked together GMT800 Silverado with a GMT900 Escalade front clip running around my little town. It looks like poop.

    I've seen livery 's with those lights. I wonder if that's a special package.

    Years ago, it was nothing to see a 98 or 99 GMC pickup with a front end from an Escalade of the same years....
    85 cars since 1975....
    Good night and good luck.

    Re: Chevrolet Escalade?

    A friend of mine, who owns a junk yard outside of DC, drives a Chevy dually crew cab, that he added an Escalade nose and trim too. He specializes in high end wrecks (BMW's, Caddy's, Mercedes', Corvette's, Porsche's, etc), so he had easy access to the parts needed to do the conversion, and the skill to do it well. It's so nicely done, that he has a lot of people thinking it really is a crew cab Escalade!
