With no new models to unleash in 2017, the Cadillac brand has been making good use of its Escala Concept, which was used as the American automaker’s centerpiece at the 2017 Detroit Auto Show before starring in a new ad that ran during the 89th Academy Awards.

It seems like one of the last items on the Escala’s bucket list was to make its long-awaited debut north of the border and it recently accomplished this by appearing at the Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto, Canada.

If you’re unfamiliar with the Escala Concept, it made its debut in 2016 at the annual Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance charitable event and also made an appearance at the 2016 LA Auto Show. At 210.5-inches in length, the Escala Concept is approximately six inches longer than the Cadillac CT6, which is the company’s current flagship sedan.

The Escala Concept also features a luxurious and tech-savvy cabin that contains three curved OLED screens, as well as plush seats that are covered in hand-tailored fabric that was inspired by suiting material that’s commonly found in the fashion industry.

“The Escala Concept introduces the next evolution of Cadillac design and technical ideas driving the next phase of Cadillac’s ongoing expansion,” said Mahmoud Samara, managing director, Cadillac Canada.  “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.”

Some of the notable features found on the outside of this large four-door sedan include 22-inch wheels and a massive grille that features a three-dimensional precision pattern.

There are currently no plans to produce the Escala Concept, but Cadillac is using the vehicle in commercials to promote the brand before the company releases the all-new XT3 crossover in 2018.
