The concept of the Escala Cadillac was stunned by the official debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show in Pebble Beach, and while there are still plenty of rich lust for big people, gorgeous traffic, they seem to worsen the limousine. So why did the Cadillac Escala Production Studio evolve into an optimism from the Pebble Beach? Because Cadillac wanted countless, a design detail and an important aesthetic spirit in the future Cadillac roasted flagship-whatever body classification it eventually needed. In fact, there is a second Escala sitting in the studio now though this trip. This is the future caddy:
Confident, Athletic Stance
The Escala was designed to telegraph the performance capability of its underlying architecture. The concept’s look and swagger suggest it’s a driver’s car, yet the rear-seat space and appointments peg it as a great car in which to be driven.
The grill comes with the iconic Cadillac Shield shape, and the inside mesh is set by tiny shields on the background and echoes the appearance of the v series car grille. Is the kind of detail may be overlooked, until the owner hand wash several times. Other hidden gems include the Cadillac script embossed back using a curved touchscreen dashboard visible only from the exterior of the car.
Might we be entering a post-leather era? When a material becomes widely available on compact cars, maybe it’s time to reimagine luxury, and the Escala’s high-end tailored suit material is warmer, more inviting and more interesting than leather. It’s also trickier to work with as it doesn’t stretch much and has a pattern/texture to it that makes stitching a seat cover together trickier. But the production teams are working these kinks out.
We’re all addicted to our screens, but often the ultimate luxury is an opportunity to escape them. This is trickier to do when a blank, black screen is sitting there begging you to stream content, mirror your Facebook screen, or otherwise reconnect. So the Escala’s rear screens can be hidden away in the front seatbacks, and this is an idea Cadillac is already rolling out.
The curved organic light-emitting diode (OLED) instrument panel and infotainment screens look very CES-worthy, but as of yet this technology has not achieved “automotive grade” durability. Suppliers are hard at work making this happen, and they certainly would help make any future Caddy flagship interior appear state of the art.
CUE the Crystal Goddess
Escala’s infotainment system is fully central via a touch screen or a center console with redundant control of the rotary push button. This indicates the future frustration-free drivers and passengers infotaining, and the sugar cake on the cake block is expected to block the middle of the knob depicting the “flying goddess” decorated Cadillac hood in the 1930s.
Carefully observed and the Escala wheels seem to have no nuts as well as extra long spokes leading to an unbelievable ferry center. No one can pack nuts, center caps, and center-lock wheels is not very likely, what happened here? Satin Nickel color you look at is the “wheel” that reveals the network deep graphite-colored spokes support rim and contains bolts round. We love the idea of a detachable, replaceable (possibly restylable) wheel facing the way curb-rash remedies reduce costs, but this is not really just a nice wheel cover?
Brushed Metal Trim
The Cadillac trimmed today has been matte chrome, and the range and development team is hard at work to find a cost-effective, sustainable way to add a linear brush look that attests to the popular concept. The trickiest part of the production will be those with low door interior panels, pure transition metals from pure brushed metal in the front door and purely inlaid with American walnut back door.
