Bling, bling…bling, bling.

The bling is back – or so Cadillac is hoping as it gets ready to launch the long-delayed fourth-generation Escalade, a massive SUV that, to fans, once defined the pinnacle of luxury while, to critics, was a symbol of wretched excess.

Whichever side you’re on, an all-new version of the ‘Slade — as it was known among the hip-hoppers who became a major market — will reach showrooms early next year and, Cadillac promises, will deliver the latest in performance, technology and, hard as it might be for some to believe, the newest in fuel economy-enhancing powertrain systems.

“The 2015 Escalade is completely new and elevated in design and technology, inside and out. The clear objective is to once again assume the leadership position among luxury SUVs,” said Bob Ferguson, the head of Cadillac’s global operations, during a preview of the 2015 Cadillac in Manhattan, traditionally one of the big ute’s largest markets.

The outgoing Mercedes GL.

The New York Auto Show has landed another big announcement, Mercedes-Benz planning to bring to the Big Apple its next-generation GL SUV.

As with the smaller ML, the big G, the descendant of the legendary Gelandewagen, will migrate to a car-based platform.  In fact, various media reports indicate the GL will share the smaller crossover’s underpinnings.

Spy photos show a big ute with a more aggressive front end than the outgoing GL, including a two-bar grille and with what one source described as “LED-infused” headlights.

Stay in the Know!

Overall length is expected to remain the same, though the modified platform reportedly will permit a much larger cabin – and one more lavishly outfitted.  Along with premium leather and wood, the new ML is also expected to get the latest Mercedes-Benz COMAND infotainment system and other high-tech goodies.
