Fresh off of a report claiming Cadillac has given the green light for Escala concept production, the brand’s president, Johan de Nysschen, again confirmed a halo vehicle is forthcoming, according to a Wards Auto report on Tuesday.
Speaking at the 2018 Automotive Forum, which runs in conjunction with the 2018 New York International Auto Show, de Nysschen said the Cadillac halo vehicle will “stun the world” when it does arrive.
“Things are about to get very interesting at Cadillac,” he said, before hinting at the halo vehicle itself. “The world does not need another large-box conventional sedan.”
Cadillac has already confirmed it will launch a new vehicle every six months through 2021, and previous reports peg the Escala to arrive enter production in December 2021. The car will reportedly wear the “Escala” name and not an alphanumeric nameplate.
Should the information prove true, the Escala will be built at the Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant. Ahead of the halo vehicle, Cadillac will introduce an ATS and CTS replacement, likely called the CT3 and CT5, another larger crossover and a next-generation Escalade.
