Think the Cadillac Escalade doesn’t fit in with the rest of Cadillac’s line-up?
Well, Cadillac President Johan de Nysschen has a few choice words for you.
Here’s an update on the Cadillac Escalade:
Speaking to The Detroit Free Press, de Nysschen promised that Cadillac has no plans to oust the Cadillac Escalade any time soon. They’re not axing it, they’re not making it its own brand, and they’re not backing down. What they will be doing is making it – in de Nysschen’s own words – “more sophisticated and technologically advanced.”
And in doing this, Cadillac is also definitively not switching to a unibody chassis, something you’ll see in any European competitor to the Escalade. No, the Escalade’s sticking with its body-on-frame build. According to de Nysschen, the Escalade can improve and even best brands like Mercedes-Benz and BMW “all with a body-on-frame architecture.”
De Nysschen didn’t reveal when the changes will be introduced, but buyers can expect a more detail-oriented build. We’re curious about what that could possibly entail, when you consider how feature-rich the standard Escalade already is.
