It's not so much a rebadge on the outside... but it's pretty blatant inside... aside from the leather used on the seats. And yes... you certainly do hear about it in the press, but mainly on the interior.ibechip said:So I was a little bit off on that one. You must admit tho that the Escalade looks a lot like a Chevy SUV on the outside. Yet I don't hear many complaints about how this is blatant badge engineering.
The 9-7 does a relatively decent job on exterior and a far better job on the interior and supposedly the materials too. But the real changes are in the chassis, suspension, etc. It might not be the best solution, but seeing as no one has driven the vehicle yet.... I don't see how anyone can really make a decision otherwise other than looks.
