    Doesn't look very distinctive at all from that angle.

    Looks like a Traverse without the Bar in the middle of the Grill....*Rolls Eyes*

    I like it. It has a lot of presence, and is a clear improvement over the current one.

    There’s a lack of attractive design in that category. First Lincoln, now Cadillac. Hope they encourage Lexus, Infiniti, to follow.

    Not sure what it’s supposed to be doing in the middle of the desert, but I think it looks good overall.

    Looks better with those LEDs off

    The interior looks smashing

    The front end has too much going on. The Navigator looks stylish. This looks like they didn't know what to do for styling, so their answer was to just add more lights (bars, strips, or whatever those are).

    I like the cleaner design of the front end. It doesn't resort to origami to appear bold.

    Yes. That grille is huge on purpose. In another 5 years it will look small LOL.

    To me it looks like a Tahoe with an aftermarket grille that someone bought on Ebay. It is just not very distinctive at all. The Navigator looks much classier. But the interior of the Escalade looks very nice.

    I think this trim looks better.

    The big Caddy sells because it is the big Caddy, They would have to really screw it up to harm sales. The pics look ok, it is not screwed up and will continue to sell well.

    It’s a huge improvement over the slab-sided box it replaces.

    The styling cues of the future are going to be from the electric vehicles segment. The Big Dumb SUV style front end is growing increasingly bizarre and desperate.

    I would choose the clean lines of the E versions over the overwrought standard SUV units by 10.

    Looks like the generic GM corporate SUV. The Cimarron Effect never really died, just hardened it's market for cheap flash to a more credulous pool of badge chasing lessors.

    Sorry ? Not sorry. Been watching this BS circle jer* since the 60s.
