In case you missed Cadillac’s event unveiling the new 2015 Cadillac Escalade last night:

As you can see here, Cadillac is still selling quite a few of their cars with the brand up 9.9%. Largely this is due to the ATS which saw a 348% increase that helped offset sales drops for the CTS and Escalade EXT.
In this chart, column 1 is the Sept 2013 sales, col 2 is Sept 2012, 3rd col is the percentage change.
In the latter half of the chart we have Jan-Sept 2013, followed by Jan-Sept 2012, and the percent change.

With sales up 38% year over year, Cadillac is the fastest growing major auto brand in the US market.
Lead by sales of the new ATS, which is seeing 70% of its buyers coming from other brands. With the XTS sales thrown in, Cadillac saw sales of their sedan lineup 112% up over last year.
Escalade saw its highest sales since 2008.
Sales in Jan, Feb, March, April, May, and Year to Date

Over at Carscoops.com (previously CarScoop on Blogger)…we have this picture, that appears to have been taken at a recent presentation, giving clues into the look of the next ‘Slade.
Combining aspects of the ATS and CTS lighting with a wrap of the light into the fender line, we can also see strong connection to the current Escalade Platinum LED lighting. Could this suggest a move to standard LEDs on the next Escalade?
We should see the new flagship SUV later this year with an expected on-sale date in the first half of 2014.

The folks over at CarScoop have put together all we know so far about the new Escalade, expected to be unveiled later this year for an early 2014 on-sale date, and put it through the wonders of rendering to give us this view of its likely look.
Possessing lines that realistically blend the ATS (headlights) and XTS (grill), this also shows off lines that are in keeping with hints dropped by GM brass that the Escalade would be more sophisticated than ‘Slades past.
I’d say that this is a good guess as to what Cadillac will bring to market in about a year.

Cadillac has mentioned, through their North American head of Marketing, Don Butler, that they plan to continue to offer coupes and wagons (sticking with some of the expansion they started with versions of the CTS in the past few years). What isn’t completely clear is if coupes and wagons will be versions of the CTS going forward.
Since this opens the floor for us to play what-if, let’s look at what Cadillac has said and what they may be doing to meet the competition head-on in these and other segments.
First of all, we have a Cadillac that is moving to a brand new rear-drive architecture for most of their mainstream cars. Alpha is the new chassis that underpins the ATS as well as (in stretched Alpha+ form) the CTS. So, no matter what Cadillac decides to do, these will all live on the same basic architecture (a boon for volume/cost). This also marks the end of Sigma, the platform developed in the late 90′s and early 2000′s as part of Cadillac’s first re-birth.
