Cadillac Escala Concept Sedan
Over the last few years, Cadillac has become among the top exhibitors at the annual Concours d’Elegance held at historic Pebble Beach. The showcase of elegance has been the luxury automaker’s chosen setting to introduce the world to the Cadillac Ciel convertible concept in 2011 and the Elmiraj coupe in 2013. For the 2016 show Cadillac’s design team really tipped the scales with the all new Cadillac Escala concept sedan. In addition to showing the creative power behind the automaker, the enigmatic Escala also gives the briefest of glimpses into upcoming technology that could be showing up on Cadillac vehicles.
“Escala is a concept with two clear objectives,” Johan de Nysschen, president of Global Cadillac said in a press release. “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.”
What is the Cadillac Escala?
Expanding on what de Nysschen said in his statement, the Escala has been built to basically show what Cadillac is capable of producing. The automaker is getting ready to introduce a number of new models with a streamlined naming structure over the next few years. The Escala is likely a cohesive model of what the next range-topping flagship sedan could look like and contain. Currently Cadillac has positioned the 2016 Cadillac CT6 as brand’s most advanced sedan.
2016 Cadillac CT6 vs. Cadillac Escala
Comparing the 2016 Cadillac CT6 and Cadillac Escala is a bit of a dicey situation. First, the CT6 has been developed and refined into one of the finest passenger sedans that are currently available to luxury buyers. Years of research and changes have gone into bringing the CT6 to market. On the other hand, the Cadillac Escala certainly takes some cues from the current flagship automobile and adds more than a few elements of its own. Overall the Escala concept sedan is about six inches longer than the CT6. Additionally, the Escala can be best distinguished by the abbreviated rear deck lid. The liftgate on the Escala is actually built to bring cargo to the level of the user.
