It ain't ah happening. The Escalade will remain BOF guaranteed. Plus that rendering looks like a jacked-up SRX.

Good chop.

Agree with the others, your chop is well done, but I feel like it just doesn't work.

only one issue I'd like to point out, the upward kink where the top of the rear window meets the back door: it should be leveled out. It looks like just a little triangular sliver needs to be removed.

I really believe that maybe if you started off with the Saturn Outlook, this would be accepted more. The Big Whit prefers BOF though.

They will not sell well enough for production! It looks like crap! Not the chop work;, but in execution it destroys the Escalade concept/perception. The current model should be lightened, more advanced power and fuel management, more luxury offerings: marble dash inlays, carbon fiber, wood, stainless or brushed aluminum, etc.

:drive:

Agreed great chop, looks real. However it's butt ugly. Someone else did a Cadillac Lambda chop (Where are the pictures?) and it looked great. BTW, if they're going to do a Cadillac Lambda it should complement the Escalade not replace it. :yup:

Exactly my thoughts, just like the Traverse complements the Tahoe.

The Escalade on Lambda = fail. Even GM is not foolish enough to dumb down the Escalade with a Lambda platform...are they ?

It would be a terrible, unforgivable shame to replace the Escalade with a Lambda product. The Escalade in it's current form has the market cornered. However a Cadillac Lambda would bring in people who find the SRX too small but the Escalade too big.

I am just kicking myself because I can't find that awesome concept Cadillac Lambda someone made. :mad:

Cadillac considers the Escalade Platinum Hybrid to be their flagship. They'd be insane to neuter it. A Lambda Escalade would be just that.
