Limo versions of the Cadillac Escalade are not a new thing, but the redesigned fifth generation of the brand’s flagship SUV is. We this decided to render a new Escalade limo in anticipation of many to come down the road.
We started off with the Escalade ESV for maximum room, as Cadillac’s extended-length variant adds 15 inches in length to the standard size Escalade. Then, we obviously stretched the chassis for even more seating inside because that’s what makes a limo.
The stretch results in an additional lower body panel and wider B-pillar to match, along with some requisite exterior lighting decoration added to the B-pillar to fancy it up a bit. We also opted for rear suicide doors on our rendered Escalade limo for a classy coachbuild touch.
Keen-eyed readers will notice that the front three-quarter view of our rendered Escalade limo dressed up in Premium Luxury trim, while the rear three-quarter view showcases the Sport trim level.
As a reminder, for the 2021 Cadillac Escalade debuted as a complete overhaul of the flagship SUV, and represents the fifth generation of the Escalade nameplate. The all-new re-engineered and redesigned models feature pioneering technologies that add new dimension to the iconic luxury SUV.
That includes exclusive, first-to-market technology innovations, including a 38-inch curved infotainment Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) screen, powered by Rightware and Kanzi; the first AKG automotive audio system, with 36 speakers; and Cadillac’s acclaimed Super Cruise driver assistance technology.
“There is something special about driving an Escalade,” said Cadillac president Steve Carlisle of the brand’s flagship. “It has the bold presence and exclusive technology to elevate the extraordinary and make every drive feel like an occasion.”
We’re hoping the chauffeur driving our rendered Escalade limo thinks so too, along with the partying passengers. And on second thought, our rendering also reminds us of a new iteration of custom, executive versions of Cadillac’s full-size SUV that have been built by others in the past.
Production of the 2022 Cadillac Escalade started on October 6th at the GM Arlington Assembly plant in Texas. The new model year brings some changes, such as more standard safety features, the Buckle to Drive feature, the deletion of two paint colors and the addition of three new hues as well as the deletion of NFC phone pairing.
