Cadillac Unveils Escala Concept, Previewing Future Design Direction
Concept showcases future design and technical systems in development
Flagship Sedan is a concept for a more expressive, expansive companion to the recently launched CT6
Dual-Theme interior includes Curved OLED displays, next-gen connectivity designs, ingenious details
The Escala Concept previews the design and technical ideas driving the next phase of Cadillac’s ongoing expansion.
“Escala is a concept with two clear objectives,” said Johan de Nysschen, president of Global Cadillac. “First, Escala is a statement of intent for the next iteration of the Cadillac design language, and also technical concepts in development for future Cadillac models. Secondly, Escala builds Cadillac’s aspirational character, signaling the brand’s return to the pinnacle of premium.”
Cadillac has released a new slate of models bristling with expressive design and exhilarating performance, driver’s cars taking Cadillac into a new chapter of its storied 114-year history.
“Escala is a concept car, but one based upon the unrelenting rise of our product substance,” de Nysschen said. “Depending on the development of market segment for large luxury sedans, Escala is a potential addition to our existing product plan.”
Escala features a new and evolved face of Cadillac design that will begin appearing on production models soon. This includes a new expression of Cadillac’s vertical lighting, a brand signature since 1948. Organic light emitting diode (OLED) lighting elements are thinner and set deep within the fascia, creating a sinister look, day and night.
The concept’s details invite closer inspection, including a three-dimensional precision pattern in the grille design and 22-inch wheels with two layers of spokes.
“This concept shares how Cadillac will bring forward a new experience that is uniquely American, and unmistakably Cadillac,” says Andrew Smith, executive director of Cadillac Global Design. “Escala is an expressive symbol of reward and an exhilarating driving experience. On the interior, we pushed further. It’s about precision and ingenuity in craftsmanship, and the artistic integration of technology.”
Escala features a “dual personality” interior crafted with distinctly different zones: The front is about intensely focused modern technology, while the rear delivers relaxation.
“My brief to the designers was to create a car you desperately want to drive, and also one in which you want to be driven,” Smith said. “So rather than a single design, this interior consists of two themes. It was an opportunity for our designers to break the rules a little bit, exactly what Cadillac should do from time to time.”
An array of three curved OLED screens is a prominent feature in the front of the cabin. The very thin, curved displays are layered in front of the driver, with the back sides wrapped in hand-stitched leather embossed with the Cadillac script. The array of screens consolidate the traditional “cluster” of driving gauges with the “center stack” into one integrated unit.
Escala includes new designs for connectivity and control, providing a prototype for the user experience in development for future production models. The system features a central control module that enables the driver to execute tactile commands across the spectrum of connectivity functions, in addition to voice and gesture control technology. Inside the controller sits a new edition of Cadillac’s “flying Goddess” icon, a nod to the brand’s illustrious heritage.
Like all Cadillac models today, the interior is assembled using hand cut-and-sewn techniques. However, Escala presents several new and unique touches, blending overt luxury with covert technology. Escala makes broad use of hand-tailored fabric on the door trim and seating areas. Inspired by suiting material used by Cadillac’s partners in the fashion industry, the fabric provides a new level of hand-applied craftsmanship and color, unique in today’s auto interior landscape.
The Escala Concept utilizes Cadillac’s new RWD-centric large luxury car architecture, featuring one of the world’s most advanced body structures, which debuted on the new CT6. The mixed-material construction enables unprecedented agility and efficiency.
Escala uses a new 4.2-liter twin-turbo V-8 engine, a prototype of a new system in development for future Cadillac models. The advanced engine utilizes Active Fuel Management technology, enabling fuel-saving 4-cylinder operation.

The Evoque is similar to the Land Rover LRX concept vehicle, which was unveiled at the North American International Auto Show in January 2008. The Evoque departs from the classic body on frame construction used in the 20th century for vehicles designed for off-road use. Instead the Evoque features a more modern unitary body structure.

The Japanese have legends like the Supra,Evo,STI, NSX and more. The Europeans have the Italian supercars like the Lamborghini Huracan,Ferrari 488 GTB, and much more. However, in the American corner is the brute force of legends like the Ford GT,Dodge Hellcat, Dodge Demon, and Shelby GT350R. Out of the darkness in it’s orange coat of paint is the brand new 2019 Corvette ZR1 – a car that literally melts your face off with it’s acceleration and g forces. When it comes to being in depth with Corvettes, they have an incredible history. However this is not like any other Corvette ever made. Let’s go on a ride. Thanks for watching!

A ‘not quite a review’ take of life with a TVR Chimaera after four years of ownership. We look at some commonly asked questions around reliability & parts availability, and guess at why a lot of owners seem to have had enough after just a few months.
Think of the MG ZS, and there is a good chance you’ll think of the performance saloon made in the noughties, which was available with a V6 engine. Well, MG has brought out a new model, although I don’t think it’s the car you’ll be expecting.
That’s because it’s now turned in to a practical, cheap, family SUV, but is it a car worth having? I tested it recently to find out.
The model tested here is the mid-range ‘Excite’ trim level, meaning you features such as an 8″ touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, DAB radio, air conditioning, cruise control, automatic headlights, LED daytime running lights, and Bluetooth. It’s priced from £13,995, and is fitted with a naturally aspirated 1.5 litre petrol engine, which feeds power to the front wheels via a 5-speed manual gearbox.

It’s big, brash and billed as Ford’s answer to the performance dual-cab ute. But, does the Ford Ranger Raptor live up to its name? Paul Maric finds out.
80, 90, 100km/h…and brace! My stomach churns as we become airborne and then crash back down to earth. We’ve just cleared a jump in the all-new 2019 Ford Ranger Raptor!
What you’re looking at here is Ford’s first ever Ford Ranger Raptor and the smaller sibling of the epic left-hand-drive-only Ford F-150 Raptor.
Exclusively revealed by CarAdvice back in 2015, the Ranger Raptor has been a passion project for the Australian T6 home room. It’s here in Australia that Ford led the design and engineering work on Ranger Raptor, so the Australian DNA is well and truly embedded into every part of this vehicle.

Today we take a look at the 500 Abarth! This is a smaller car, but is a ton of fun to drive! You can opt for an automatic, but with the manual it just gives you that much more driver engagement and is very easy to drive. Storage space is somewhat limited, but is to be expected given the size. The coolest thing in my opinion was being able to remove the soft top roof!! It was a lot more fun and you could hear the exhaust just a little bit more!

The largest Infiniti ever made gets a refresh for 2018 with a sharper exterior and some minor interior tweaks. While it still can’t match the level of gadgetry found in some of the competition, it is still a screaming deal in the luxury segment with solid towing ability and a powerful V8 engine.

Also, I will teach you how to use most of the interior and exterior features in a detailed fashion, that before, you could only get from going to a dealership yourself! Throughout the video, I will highlight key styling and unique differences about the vehicle, any available options, and of course it would not be an enthusiast car video without the good ole engine portion with rev and exhaust note with interior and exterior perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
