Two proper super-saloon cars for a specialized group of clients in the European market.
Yes, Cadillac has always had trouble gaining traction in the UK and France, but the brand has devoted fans across many other Euro-group countries.
Interesting to see the Escalade Platinum in its Euro-spec look, which takes some of our wishlist and makes it real. The brushed-alloy brightwork for the grille and details all around is now a nice dark grey, while the headlamps are now tinted a dark shade of black versus clear as they are on US-market cars. Side marker lights swap to white from amber in the US as well.
It looks fantastic! But where are the dark-grey wheels of my dreams? Still in neverland… or the aftermarket, of course!
