GM Throws Another Lambda On The Fire: Cadillac Confirms 7-Seat Crossover

No details yet, just an Inside Line confirmation from GM’s Karl Stracke that a seven-seat, Lambda-platform crossover “is absolutely a go.” It has long been rumored that the Cadillac Escalade would be replaced by a Lambda-platform crossover. The Cadillac crossover will join the Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse, and GMC Acadia, as the Lambda becomes the only platform shared by all four of the General’s “core” brands (and previously, the Saturn Outlook as well).

    This could be a very nice Escalade. Here's a tip. Recycle your 4.6L block and do the whole DI and twin turbo thing. Don't cheese it out like you did the SRX and CTS wagon with weak, weaker, weakest engine choices (relative to the mass of course). I mean seriously; CAFE is a harmonic average, no? How many of these markup mobiles are you REALLY gonna sell? CAFE shafe when it comes to Cadillac I say. Otherwise I'll shop elsewhere.

    Good to see rebadging is alive and well at Government Motors. Travers, Outlook, Acadia, Enclave. Now it's Travers, Escalade, Acadia, Enclave. All have 3 rows, same underpinnings, same engine and drivetrain, similar interior dimensions and can be priced accordingly to overlap one another. Woopee.

    The more things change at Obama Motors, the more they remain the same. Roger Smith must be smiling over this.
