Reveal Of The Month: February

The February Reveal Of The Month is the 2021 Cadillac Escalade, which was revealed on February 4, and its first auto show debut was in Chicago this week. The Escalade received a beautiful redesign that looks a lot more like the Cadillac XT6. The new Escalade also includes the highly anticipated triple curved OLED touchscreen layout, which is the most exciting and the most stylish part of Cadillac's new flagship SUV.

The touchscreen has an incredible 16.9-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a 14.2-inch instrument cluster and a 7.2-inch touchscreen to the left of the cluster. A groundbreaking 38 inch display overall. All of the screens are curved and use OLED technology, which is used on the screen of an Android phone, iPhone, or TV. It looks more modern than an LCD screen, which is what most infotainment screens have. Also, it is one of the biggest touch screens we have ever seen that is not in a Tesla. It looks beautiful next to the wood trim surrounding it. Cadillac had some doubts about putting such technology into a car, like how expensive OLED technology is, but Cadillac decided to include it to create a true luxury driving experience, and also because having advanced tech like OLED in a car has never happened before, so Cadillac decided to be the first ones to do this. It is surprising how the Tesla Model S, Ford Mustang Mach E, and the Cadillac Escalade have bigger infotainment systems than Rolls Royce and Maybach. After they hear about this, you would bet that they are working on something with OLED as well. They probably are.

The front screen holds a perfect view of the speedometer, and surrounding cameras in front of the steering wheel, making it easy to view. All the apps and settings are in the infotainment screen to the right, along with another touchscreen with buttons like temperature control and radio volume. The whole display takes out every button except for the start/stop button. As you can see, Cadillac did not turn the gearshift handle into buttons like Chevy and GMC did. Cadillac also has nine cameras that are even suitable for towing. Even more cool technology features include Super Cruise, augmented reality, and night vision.

The new Cadillac Escalade is probably the best one yet. The Escalade ESV is the same except for the fact that it is bigger. The front end is completely revised, including thinner rectangular headlights, a bigger, more modern grille that is now connected to the headlights, the lower grille is longer, and rises up into the fog lights, which look similar to the smaller XT6 SUV and the CT5 sedan. The rear, however, has not changed as much. But, the taillights are a bit thicker than before. The shape that holds the license plate is different as well. The new Escalade also is bigger, and has a lighter, bolder shape. Also, instead of the rear window curving to the side and leaving a windowless gap at the side of the car, the window just wraps around the car like a Land Rover, and in higher trim levels, a striking silver chrome line separates the third row window and the second row window. Below is a gallery of before and after images and then the key features.

Key features:

- Engine: 6.2-liter V8 or optional 6-cylinder inline turbodiesel

- Horsepower: 420 hp

- Towing Capacity: Unknown

- Price: About $75K

- Seating: Up to 8
