Cadillac has at last revealed the royal card in its hand of redesigned GMT-900 SUVs — the Cadillac Escalade. Here in the high-margin upper reaches of the market is where GM hopes the new models' refinement will pay off. The Escalade is easily the most appealing of the new trucks, sporting a post-bling understatement that's striking, considering the last-generation Circus-Circus wagon had as much sophistication as the all-you-can-eat buffet at Trump Taj Mahal. The standard 6.2-liter aluminum V8 offers 403hp of fuck-you power and 417 ft.-lbs of fuck-me torque. It'll be available in early 2006. More pics and specs after the jump. [Update: More photos]
