NEW Cadillac Escala Concept Review
Cadillac Unveils Escala Concept, Previewing Future Design Direction Concept showcases future design and technical systems in development Flagship Sedan is a concept for a more expressive, expansive companion to the recently launched CT6 Dual-Theme interior includes Curved OLED displays, next-gen connectivity designs, ingenious details The Escala Concept previews the design and technical ideas driving the next phase of Cadillac’s ongoing expansion. “Escala is a concept with two clear objectives,” said Johan de Nysschen, president of Global Cadillac. “First, Escala is a statement of intent for the next iteration of the Cadillac design language, and also technical concepts in development for future Cadillac models. Secondly, Escala builds Cadillac’s aspirational character, signaling the brand’s return to the pinnacle of premium.” Cadillac has released a new slate of models bristling with expressive design and exhilarating performance, driver’s cars taking Cadillac into a new chapter of its storied 114-year history. “Escala is a concept car, but one based upon the unrelenting rise of our product substance,” de Nysschen said. “Depending on the development of market segment for large luxury sedans, Escala is a potential addition to our existing product plan.” Escala features a new and evolved face of Cadillac design that will begin appearing on production models soon. This includes a new expression of Cadillac’s vertical lighting, a brand signature since 1948. Organic light emitting diode (OLED) lighting elements are thinner and set deep within the fascia, creating a sinister look, day and night. The concept’s details invite closer inspection, including a three-dimensional precision pattern in the grille design and 22-inch wheels with two layers of spokes. “This concept shares how Cadillac will bring forward a new experience that is uniquely American, and unmistakably Cadillac,” says Andrew Smith, executive director of Cadillac Global Design. “Escala is an expressive symbol of reward and an exhilarating driving experience. On the interior, we pushed further. It’s about precision and ingenuity in craftsmanship, and the artistic integration of technology.” Escala features a “dual personality” interior crafted with distinctly different zones: The front is about intensely focused modern technology, while the rear delivers relaxation. “My brief to the designers was to create a car you desperately want to drive, and also one in which you want to be driven,” Smith said. “So rather than a single design, this interior consists of two themes. It was an opportunity for our designers to break the rules a little bit, exactly what Cadillac should do from time to time.” An array of three curved OLED screens is a prominent feature in the front of the cabin. The very thin, curved displays are layered in front of the driver, with the back sides wrapped in hand-stitched leather embossed with the Cadillac script. The array of screens consolidate the traditional “cluster” of driving gauges with the “center stack” into one integrated unit. Escala includes new designs for connectivity and control, providing a prototype for the user experience in development for future production models. The system features a central control module that enables the driver to execute tactile commands across the spectrum of connectivity functions, in addition to voice and gesture control technology. Inside the controller sits a new edition of Cadillac’s “flying Goddess” icon, a nod to the brand’s illustrious heritage. Like all Cadillac models today, the interior is assembled using hand cut-and-sewn techniques. However, Escala presents several new and unique touches, blending overt luxury with covert technology. Escala makes broad use of hand-tailored fabric on the door trim and seating areas. Inspired by suiting material used by Cadillac’s partners in the fashion industry, the fabric provides a new level of hand-applied craftsmanship and color, unique in today’s auto interior landscape. The Escala Concept utilizes Cadillac’s new RWD-centric large luxury car architecture, featuring one of the world’s most advanced body structures, which debuted on the new CT6. The mixed-material construction enables unprecedented agility and efficiency. Escala uses a new 4.2-liter twin-turbo V-8 engine, a prototype of a new system in development for future Cadillac models. The advanced engine utilizes Active Fuel Management technology, enabling fuel-saving 4-cylinder operation.

2017 Cadillac Ciel Concept Review Rendered Price Specs Release Date
2017 Cadillac Ciel Concept Review Rendered Price Specs Release Date. Not that long ago manufacturers started to embrace once again personal luxury cars and one of the first to make the step was Mercedes. In order not to lag behind, Cadillac is expected to get on the market two different cars, both of them aimed at the S-Class Coupe and at the SL. The upcoming 2017 Cadillac Ciel has been rumored ever since the concept has been released to the public more than three years ago. The concept of the car was a four-door convertible sporting a rather interesting engine and one of the most striking designs in the industry. Unlike the concept which used a four-door design, the production version is highly likely going to get just two doors. A soft-top has been rumored by many but considering its intended purpose, we really expect Cadillac to offer a hard-top. This would allow them to keep the proportions in check and a hard-top would really benefit a car like a luxury convertible. The concept of the Ciel used a 3.6 liter twin-turbocharged V6 and it would not be all that unusual for the production 2017 Cadillac Ciel to receive such an engine. However, the one on the Elmiraj would be more likely. This is a 4.5 liter twin-turbocharged V8 petrol engine which has been rumored to make 500 horsepower and 500 lb-ft of torque. There are some that suggest that GM will be in fact offering either a 4.2 or a 4.8 liter unit of the same V8. This would be easier to make than the 4.5-liter unit and it should allow for similar power levels as well. 2017 Cadillac Ciel Concept price from $100,000. ► More Cars Models on website http://webcarshow.info/
