Lambda-Based ‘Escalade’ Scrapped

C adillac has been considering a unibody crossover based on GM’s Lambda platform (Chevy Traverse, Buick Enclave, GMC Acadia) for some time.

Lambda CadillacRumor had them waiting for the next major re-engineering of the platform so they could have more freedom to add power trains beyond the current chassis’ 3.6 V-6.

There were even rumors that they would abandon the body-on-frame chassis and badge the new entry Escalade.

However, latest rumors have Cadillac management walking away from that plan largely due to expectations that they would be too late to that party to be a serious player.

So, with this change, we expect an ATS-based small crossover, the SRX, and the Escalade to be Cadillac’s ultimate people-mover lineup.

Expect the new small entry and new SRX to bow in the next 2-3 years.
