Cadillac has confirmed that its redesigned Escalade SUV will be revealed to the world on October 7, 2013. The reveal will take place outside of the auto show arena, with Cadillac choosing to present the big luxury SUV at a low-key event in New York. It will eventually go on sale in 2014, as a 2015 model.

The current Escalade has proven to be a huge success for the Cadillac brand despite a lack of major updates. Sales are down only 5 percent this year, even with a redesigned model just around the corner.

Underpinning the 2015 Cadillac will be the same K2XX platform found in the latest Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra twins. The K2XX will also be used for redesigned versions of the GMC Yukon and Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban.

On the outside, expect an even bigger and bolder look than the current model. Inside, however, is where the biggest gains will be realized; the 2015 Cadillac Escalade will finally get the interior worthy of its luxury positioning.

At launch, a 6.2-liter V-8, rated at roughly 420 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque, should be offered. Expect more powertrain options to be offered further down the track.

Pricing is expected to rise in accordance with the more refined look and feel of the 2015 Escalade. The sticker will most likely like somewhere north of $65k. By positioning the Escalade further upmarket, Cadillac will be able to launch a new crossover with third-row seating to fill the void.
