    I like your "bling-ier" version. It gives off a feeling similar to the current Mercedes ML, of which I constantly think is one thing Mercedes has finally gotten "right".

    Very nicely done. Definitely a much richer looking product than the current Escalade. I would gladly welcome a Lamda Escalade if it Looked like your revised version. I am really feeling the disconnect between the beltlines of the front an rear windows, it is just perfect for Cadillac.

    Your second (or first version I guess?) feels a little more along the lines of an Acadia. Not as refund as the top image.

    Even better with the extra bling, with that engine and an amazing interior I bet a lot of people would forget about BOF and rebadging.

    If I had to have a Lambda Slade I'd make vertical cuts in my wrists.

    Hey look, It's a big luxury Equinox known as a Cadinox!



    !!
    IF It's A Chevrolet & RWD, Don't ride in it!!!

    ALL Chevy's NEED to be FWD/F-AWD!!!

    If it's a Toyota/Lexus/Scion, Don't ride in/drive it!!

    Mister SS...is possible to try your math on an Outlook instead. Plus I do like the polished nickel look.

    Thanks.

    Just a note that the second pic is the chop from the Edmunds story thread I assumed people would have seen.

    I like the first version more than the second, but I think the first version would look better without the bright surrounds on the running lights. It's still bold enough without it. Great work.

    Even just adding chrome trim all the way around the side windows makes a big difference.

    It reminds me of a first generation SRX. That is a good thing. Nice job.

    Honestly, GM should develop a TT 5.4l DI V8.. It would smite any other car company.
