The list however, doesn’t stop with just those mentioned above. According to LeftLaneNews, both Mercedes-Benz and Cadillac are rumored to be working on new full-size SUVs within the next few years.
Adding to the super-SUV trend, Cadillac is rumored to be building an Escalade V. Although, it seems that Cadillac isn’t just stopping there. When it comes to this tax bracket of vehicle, “Keeping up with the Joneses” takes on new meaning, and Cadillac is looking to push the Escalade over the $100,000 mark, perhaps giving it more gravitas against import rivals.
Currently, the top trim Escalade ESV Platinum putters out at $98,945. While that price represents a huge sum of money for the vast majority of people, it’s nothing to the clientele Cadillac wants to entice with a larger, more luxurious Escalade.
Today’s global marketplace seems to be at a fracture point. In all respects, manufacturers are doing everything they can to curb emissions and cut fuel consumption.
However, these same companies that are bringing better hybrids, and EVs are also building faster, larger, and more luxurious cars and SUVs.
Are these special editions just the final gasp from a bygone era, or will the world’s insatiable need for these types of cars always persist?
