With the jewel in the crown of GM's new full-size SUVs — the Cadillac Escalade — making its fashionably late entrance this Friday, Edmunds Inside Line has revealed some recent shots of a nearly undisguised model caught during testing. As the shots indicate, most of the branding will take place fore of the windshield, with Cadillac's signature grill, crest and headlight clusters set to evoke other products in the Caddy line, like the SRX crossover. Edmunds reports a choice of 355hp, 6.0-liter — with displacement on demand — or 380hp, 6.2-liter V8s, linked to a six-speed autobox. The unveiling will take place at the South Florida Auto Show in Miami on November 11. [Update: Jim Taylor, Cadillac general manager, now says the Escalade will be revealed this week in Beverly Hills, Calif.]
