DETROIT — Bits and pieces of the 2015 Cadillac Escalade have been teased by General Motors ahead of an October 7 unveiling of the redesigned luxury SUV.

Cadillac released two images of the 2015 Escalade, showing the SUV's new badge and a headlight. From the design of the headlight, Cadillac is sticking with its bold look.

Several YouTube videos of the Escalade were posted as well, showing a portion of the car in clay form, as well as a look at the upholstery being stitched. The overall impression is one of all-American opulence, a tactic that may take the Escalade further upmarket.

The 2014 Escalade starts at $67,970, including a $995 destination charge.

The 2015 Cadillac Escalade will go on sale in early spring.

Cadillac is bypassing the auto-show circuit for the debut of the redesigned Escalade, opting for an event in New York City.

The 2015 Escalade, which targets the Lexus LX 570 and the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, is expected to get lighter and more fuel-efficient. The 2014 Escalade 2WD returns 14 mpg in city driving and 18 mpg on the highway, according to the EPA.

The big GM SUV is due for an update. Escalade sales are down 5 percent this year, the automaker reported earlier this month. Cadillac has sold 7,985 Escalades, calendar-year-to-date versus 8,381 during the same time period in 2012.

Edmunds says: The Escalade has been a traditional symbol of American success for years. Just how that gets interpreted with the redesign will be made clear in about two weeks.
