Last month, we brought you what we thought were spy photos of the upcoming next-gen Cadillac Escalade’s interior. Dear readers, it turns out we were wrong. We now understand that the previously spied interior was probably the next-gen GMC Yukon’s interior penetrated an Escalade for testing, as a new set of spy pictures have exposed the real interior of the upcoming Slade.
While nearly whatever is concealed, we can see a large curved screen that appears to be part of one giant piece that likewise consists of the digital gauge cluster in front of the motorist. The rounded edge of the screen is finished with aluminum trim, and the real estate is wrapped in leather. We need to have anticipated that what we previously spied wasn’t the Escalade, as rumors had pointed to the new SUV getting a radically redesigned interior with, yes, a curved screen– and the little that we can see seems more aligned with Cadillac’s style language, anyhow.
2021 Cadillac Escalade Features
Offered that the resident in the car is grabbing the screen in what seems like a pinching movement, it’s probably a touchscreen, although we wouldn’t be amazed for the system to likewise can be managed by some rotary knob. We can also see that the screen is installed atop a strip of brilliant wood trim, and the graphics on the screen (showing the navigation view in these pictures) seem part of a new operating system.
Beyond the screen, a stubby electronic shifter installed to the center console verifies that the Escalade is getting rid of the current model’s column-mounted shifter. As the Yukon interior had a push-button set up to save the center-console area, we think the shifter in this Escalade could be a placeholder for a similar setup.
2021 Cadillac Escalade Debut
The next-gen Escalade needs to debut within the next months or so before going on sale as a 2021 model. Hopefully, we won’t have to admit to being incorrect again when the next batch of spy images hits our inbox.
