Coming to grace the 2016 LA Auto Show straight from the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance is Cadillac’s futuristic-looking study, which wears the Escala moniker – that’s Spanish for ‘scale’.
Now that might be just another study and nothing more, but given that the GM-owned brand has been struggling in trying to challenge cars such as the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, BMW 7-Series, and Audi A8, we might actually be looking at a future production vehicle.
Even if this isn’t the case, then we could be getting an early preview of Cadillac’s future design language, which actually looks pretty sharp. Meanwhile, in the cabin, most knobs and buttons have been replaced by generously sized screens and surfaces are covered in either wood, leather or textile material.
We don’t know yet if Cadillac plans to offer the Escala as a more upscale version of the CT6 or an entirely new model, but it would definitely make for an interesting offering in the full-size luxury vehicle segment.
