Will 2015 finally be the year Europeans enjoy American-made vehicles as much we enjoy cars and SUVs made in Europe?
Ex-Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson already found out the new Corvette Stingray was faster around track than a Porsche Cayman GTS. Clarkson further cemented the win by concluding that he would rather drive and own the new C7, too.
So, Chevrolet may have finally dispelled the myth that american sports cars can’t turn corners, but what about our brashly oversized yet highly desired SUVs? Can the epitome of America’s SUV fascination – the 2015 Cadillac Escalade – truly convince European journalists to abandon their X5s and Range Rovers?
At this point, it’s a little too early to tell: While we’ve had the new, fourth-generation vehicle on our roads for almost one year, GM Europe recently invited European journalists from ten countries to the vehicles’ official launch in Zurich, Switzerland from March 16-22.
While we don’t know exactly what they said– the video’s “music” takes care of that– we can only hope that one of the journalists didn’t smash a headlight on the test-drive.
