2014 Cadillac Escalade Photo Leaked

2014 Cadillac Escalade Photo Leaked

Cadillac will look to re-ignite interest in its flagship SUV, debuting an all-new fourth-generation Escalade later this year, with a lone leaked photo hinting at what to anticipate.

Expected to carry on its boxy look, favoring imposing style over a swoopy aerodynamic shape, the 2014 Escalade gets thin yet tall headlights that run up the hood. As for the rear of the luxury truck, expect tall taillights that are thinner at the top, while the rear fenders will be more flared than the fronts. The truck will also feature a beltline that raises towards the rear, with smaller third row windows.

Additional leaked details include standard power 3rd row fold flat seats, as well as a big improvement in materials.

Based on GM’s new truck platform (shared with the 2014 Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra), expect a new small-block V8 under the hood with direct injection and cylinder deactivation to improve fuel economy. There’s no word yet on if GM could also make use of the new twin-turbo V6 engine to strengthen the truck’s fuel economy rating further, or if the brand’s new 8-speed automatic transmission will be offered.
