The Chicago Auto Show is one of several major expos across the country that introduces the public to what’s new in the automotive industry. It’s a place where manufacturers can show off current and prospective vehicles, and where car enthusiasts can attend and soak up the exciting developments in the auto world.
This year, the Chicago Auto Show took place February 10th to February 19th. As attendees browsed the booths, they were invited to participate in the show’s “Best of Show” voting. The contest is a way of letting attendees share their thoughts on vehicles in the show, casting votes for categories like “Best Exhibit” and “Best Green Vehicle.”
This year, the Cadillac Escala won the most votes for the “Best Concept Vehicle.” If you’ve heard of the Escala before, it’s because this concept vehicle has become quite popular since it first arrived.
The Cadillac Escala debuted in 2016 at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. It has made its rounds in other auto shows since then, never failing to impress. The luxury Cadillac Escala combines utility with elegance, featuring a liftback for extra cargo space plus four-door coupe styling.
“Escala is a concept with two clear objectives,” explained 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.”
Whether or not the Cadillac Escala will ever be one of the options at Bradshaw Cadillac and other dealerships remains to be seen. But, with all of the positive feedback consumers and experts are giving it, we’re sure it would be a top seller.
