We’ve known for quite some time now that Cadillac will be expanding its crossover lineup with vehicles that will flank the mid-sized SRX, both above and below, yet will remain beneath the all-new 2015 Escalade, which was revealed yesterday evening.
Yet, as the title of this article reads out, the Escalade nameplate may not be exclusive to a V8-powered behemoth luxury SUV in the future. Or so indicates a report from Automotive News, interviewing Senior Vice President of Global Cadillac Bob Ferguson.
“I’d like to explore the notion of other vehicles that would carry that brand name,” stated Ferguson. To advocate, GM’s had success with expanding other popular nameplates, such as the entire Denali lineup, which stemmed from an upscale Yukon, and now four different vehicles feature a Denali package. Other brands, like Toyota, have made it work with the Prius nameplate, which now encompasses vehicles of three different sizes.
Hopefully GM will at least be bold enough to separate the incoming luxury crossover apart from what’s sure to be Chevrolet, Buick and GMC variants, and aside from just a visual standpoint.
