Cadillac has often said its concept cars aren’t made with production in mind, but the well-received Escala fastback sedan is poised to break that trend. According to Autoline, Cadillac has given the Escala a green light for production.
AutoForecast Solutions supplied the intel and claimed the sedan, which will wear the “Escala” nameplate and not an alphanumeric badge, will enter production in December 2021.
The firm’s information alleges the Escala will ride on the Omega platform, which currently only underpins the Cadillac CT6, and it will most certainly represent the brand’s flagship model, should the information prove reliable.
The production Escala will be built at General Motors’ Detroit-Hamtramck plant where the Chevrolet Volt, Impala, Buick LaCrosse and Cadillac CT6 are also built, per the report.
The Escala debuted at the 2016 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance and previewed future Cadillac design language inside and out. It’s worth noting the Detroit-Hamtramck plant only builds sedans, so it’s quite likely we’ll see the Escala keep its four-door with a liftback layout. We have rendered a true Escala sedan minus the liftback for your viewing pleasure above.
