The next-generation Escalade / ESV. Is the arrival of the most anticipated generation of Cadillac’s crown jewel worthy merely of an introduction, or more of a coronation?

The charge of taking an American icon and elevating it to new heights of perfection, perfection that existed solely in the hearts and imagination of the world’s finest designers and artisans was as exhilarating and monumental as the vehicle itself. Welcome to the Cadillac of Escalades.
