The all-new 2021 Escalade made its world debut back in February, bringing a complete overhaul for the iconic luxury nameplate. Now, this next-gen SUV is getting slammed to the ground in the following rendering.
Given the popularity of various Cadillac models among low rider enthusiasts, it makes sense that the new Escalade would be the recipient of a digital reimagining like this. Produced by Abimelec Arellano from Abimelec Design, the rendering gives us a good idea what the 2021 Escalade would look like with some aftermarket extras tossed in.
By the looks of it, those extras include flared fenders on top of three-piece deep-dish wheels with highly polished lips. The body panels are covered in Infrared Tintcoat paint, while the factory polished trim complements the look nicely. We’re also digging the black tail lamp treatment, which adds to the blacked-out window tint.
Interestingly, this low rider 2021 Escalade also sports a set of custom side steps, bringing the whole thing even closer to the ground, at least visually. Other details include monochromatic Cadillac badges, which replace the multi-color factory badges with new silver badging. As we covered previously, Cadillac may be working on new illuminated badging for its future vehicles, and this silver application could be seen as a sort of preview of the monochromatic treatment.
To make this kind of drop a reality, we suspect a real 2021 Escalade would equip new aftermarket air suspension components.
All told, this rendering does a great job in providing a sneak peek at future aftermarket upgrades we can expect to see for the next-generation 2021 Escalade. Of course, it makes us wonder how enthusiasts will react when Cadillac unveils alternative variants like the upcoming high-performance Escalade or Escalade EV, but that’s a topic for another day.
