The Escala has certainly proved worthy of a Pebble Beach debut with positive reactions from most of you, however, we still don’t have a clear picture as to if something like the Escala’s liftback design will one day be a flagship for the brand.
But, we digress. Today, we’re here with another detailed look at the Escala concept, provided by Andrew Smith, Cadillac Design Director. Smith walks us through the ins and outs of the design, explaining the progression the design team took.
The exterior certainly previews Cadillac’s new face, featuring a new take on the Art & Science motif’s vertical headlamps and muscular grille. In the rear, it’s a classic Cadillac look, and Smith even points out a slight Easter Egg, harkening back to the 1967 Cadillac Eldorado.
Inside, the driver is situated with the latest OLED technologies and a position which beckons the vehicle to be driven. However, in the rear, it’s all about the riding experience.
Have a look and a listen in the video right up above. And if that’s not enough, have a look at our rankings of Cadillac’s modern-day concept cars right here.
