The extended ESV and Escalade models share the same platform as that of Chevy Tahoe, GMC Yukon, and Suburban; all these vehicles will be launched in North America during the 1st quarter of 2014.

Luke confirmed that 6-speed transmission in Escalade will be replaced by a top-geared transmission. GM is now working on 10-speed and 8-speed transmissions, both for the RWD applications.
