Those stealthy souls at Auto Spies got their hands on a few, hastily snapped but revealing cameraphone shots of the new Chevrolet Tahoe and Cadillac Escalade, apparently as they were being prepped for a photo shoot. The new design looks a bit blockier, with a cleaner facia, a la Trailblazer, than the current bruisers. They also look a tad shorter in height โ€” though the cameraphone lens tends to distort โ€” indicating a lower center of gravity to improve anti-rollover performance. [Update: Hey, the Avalanche Fan Club seems to have been first to publish them. Yikes, turf war.]
