Driving The World Forward

Andrew Smith, Head of Design at Cadillac, promises the brand’s enthusiasts that “The evolution of driving never stops. And neither will we.” Long-time and future buyers have much to look forward to in 2019 and beyond, as Cadillac’s product line is sure to expand to include even more revolutionary technology and driving enhancements. Boucher Cadillac invites you to learn more about the luxury sedan products that will hit dealerships in the near future. In this brief showcase, we’ll take a glimpse at upcoming models like the Cadillac Elmiraj, Cadillac Escala, Cadillac CT6 v-sport, Ciel, and Cadillac XT6. It’s sport and luxury sedan perfection from beginning to finish.

The brand has been highlighting its line of concept cars very heavily mid-year, and that’s because many of these concept vehicles are getting ready to roll onto new dealerships near you soon. Boucher Cadillac will of course be welcoming these automotive Godsends with open arms in 2019 and beyond. For now we invite you to read about each of these beautiful vehicles.

The Luxury Sedan Heaven of the Future

Boucher will update information as it becomes available, but for now these are the concept cars that will soon become a reality for Caddy lovers.

Ciel

If you have room in your heart for a large, four-seat convertible, the brand invites you to take a trip backward and forward in time. It’s the same beautiful design that blessed Caddy owners decades ago, returning true to physical form but with a lot more technology under the hood and in the interior. Ciel means “Sky” in French, and the sky truly is the limit here. Blessed with an interior sewn together with kiln-dried Olive wood grain and stitched leather, it promises to take you back to the past with its beautiful retro design, but there’s nothing retro about the connectivity it promises its future owners. This beautiful future bestseller features a 3.6-liter direct injection V6 engine that will give you 425 horsepower.

Cadillac Elmiraj

It’s built to be a “grand coupe,” and they certainly don’t disappoint. It’s a two-door elegant experience with surprises around every bold angle and curve. Doors are wide swinging and everything is streamlined for a unique driving experience only this brand could deliver. The interior will be decked out in fallen Brazilian Rosewood, quality materials usually only used to create musical instruments of the finest quality. The fun is in the drive most of all though. It features a 4.5-liter twin turbocharged V8 engine that elegantly churns out 500 horsepower. This much power never looked so refined.

Cadillac Escala

Art and science mesh together to fuel the design philosophy that made the Escala possible. With this one, it’s all about harmony, art and science blending together for the perfect look and feel for this one. Technology will exist in this one, too, with a OLED screen to navigate the roads ahead. You’ll also get a sophisticated interior unlike any other on the market, as it’s designed with art and science throughout. The brand calls it a “dual-personality” interior, with many different tones blending together as one. In a word, it’s elegant and powerful, with a 4.2-liter twin-turbocharged dual overhead camshaft V8 engine clocking in at 500 horsepower.

Cadillac CT6 v-sport

As they say, this one is a powerful force to be reckoned with. A twin turbo sport V8 engine powers you ahead at 550 horsepower, and of course it wouldn’t be fitting unless it was all-wheel drive, too. Packed with today’s most forward-thinking technology, you can always know if you own this one that you’re owning a vehicle that few other folks on earth would think twice about buying. It’s sporty, elegant, and most of all, truly powerful with a sense of fun and daring about the driving experience. You’re in control at all times, connected, in tune with the world. It’s set to hit dealerships in early 2019. The designers wanted “no compromises” on this one. It was pure and simple: Create the most groundbreaking, breathtaking, and exhilarating driving experience possible, and then outdo it within polish and finishing touches. Did we mention the 627 lb-ft of torque? We should have.

Cadillac XT4

This brand can do it all, including SUV crossovers. Expect much from this one and at surprisingly lower pricing than you’d expect from a crossover of this magnitude. The Cadillac XT4 seeks to make a bold statement with its exclusive engine (built from the ground up) and sculpted body. It has a highly polished interior, with handpicked premium materials, meticulously inspiring design, and pure energy from the moment you step into the driver’s or passenger’s seats. It seats 5 with a precise 237 @ 5000 horsepower and a 9-speed automatic transmission. Add in touchscreen dash navigation system that puts you in control of every step of your journey, and you’ve got a recipe for an elegant crossover SUV that surprises you in all the best of ways.

Driving Into The Future

This brand is certainly making a heavy push forward into the new world of touchscreen infotainment systems and connectivity, but they’re doing it in the old world style: With beauty, grace, and respect for the tradition of this brand. The charm of the brand continues to inspire and set the standard for all higher-end sedans and SUVs. Over the years we’ve seen vehicles that inspire us with technology, take us closer to the natural beauties of the world, and make driving more than just a functional experience. When you drive one of these sedans or SUVs, you’re driving something that was created by someone seeking out the beauty in the world, the uncommon pleasures, and the extraordinary resilience that is the legacy of the human race. It’s more than just a car or an SUV. It’s exhilaration and inspiration. We welcome you to learn more about these vehicles at your earliest convenience. You may just be looking at your next new vehicle. If you think you do indeed see your next new vehicle here, make sure to keep an eye out for these great cars coming to Frank Boucher Cadillac Racine and Boucher Cadillac of Waukesha.  Just give us a call when you see your future vehicle at Boucher.

Cadillac Escalade Celebrates Its 20th Birthday

Cadillac Escalade Celebrates Its 20th Birthday

Break out the ice cream and cake and all your fond memories and dreams of owning one of the most iconic luxury automobiles and prepare to celebrate the Cadillac Escalade. This is the Escalade’s 20th anniversary and it’s well worth celebrating Cadillac’s first-ever luxury sport-utility-vehicle. In August 1998, the roomy, stylish, luxurious Escalade made its debut at Pebble Beach’s Concours d’Elegance and radically changed the public’s perception of what a truly luxurious SUV should look like. Since then, owning, or at least driving, an Escalade has become a status symbol.

A Different World 
Although the world has changed a great deal since Cadillac debuted the Escalade, this vehicle continues to symbolize top-of-the-line quality. This full-size luxury SUV built in Arlington, Texas, was indeed Cadillac’s “escalade” or siege warfare tactic, in response to the Lincoln Navigator and it worked. When Cadillac’s Escalade was first introduced, people were using their dot.com and strong real estate market wealth to buy one to show they had ‘arrived’. Today, 20 years later, many people still see the Escalade as the epitome of the “art and science” of automotive comfort, style and convenience.

Boucher Cadillac 
For people in Milwaukee and Racine, Wisconsin who want to join in the celebration of the Cadillac Escalade, all they have to do is visit Frank Boucher Cadillac in Racine for Boucher Cadillac in Waukesha. There you can have some fun while checking out the extensive lineup of this iconic Cadillac SUV that the staff at Boucher has in stock. They can show you some of the older, classic models or the latest version of this luxurious automobile. The staff will take the time to provide you with all the information you need to know about the Escalade, let you get inside an experience its opulence and show you a variety of easy financing options that can help you get an Escalade of your own.

A Big Seller 
When the Cadillac Escalade was first introduced, consumer confidence was high and sales of the Escalade took off into the stratosphere. Sales remain strong today, even as economic times have changed. People still reward themselves with and want to drive an Escalade. The vehicle has come to signify success and great wealth. The first generation Escalade integrated the best exterior styling elements of the Yukon Denali and was powered by the same 255 horsepower, 5.7-liter V-8 engine as the Tahoe, but wearing Cadillac’s unique crest and the then-signature egg-crate grille, the Escalade was able to build on that and take good looks and a powerful engine to an entirely new level that buyers loved.

Major Upgrades 
When the new-for-202 Escalade hit the market with its high-output 345 horsepower 6.0-liter Vortec V-8 engine, it was the world’s most powerful SUV. Plus, its sharp-edged front clip, lower body cladding, unique taillamps, innovative interior color scheme and pretty dash-mounted clock, it had a distinctive new look. In 2003, the Escalade ESV with its extra-long wheelbase was introduced. It made the Escalade the most spacious luxury SUV on the market. Both the Escalade ESV and EXT had graceful, streamlined body cladding that made the vehicle look even more attractive.

Inside The Escalade 
It’s the interior features, creature comforts and accoutrements of the Escalade that has always set it apart. The chic cabin is awash with handsome styling elements and top-shelf materials. Some models even feature real wood trim pieces and premium leather which add to the luxurious feel of the SUV. The first- and second-row Escalade seats provide lots of room for even the largest adults. The ESV model’s extended-wheelbase creates lots of room for adults in the third row and abundant cargo space for those high-dollar shopping trips for birthdays, anniversary, holidays and other special occasions.

Plush Seating 
The Escalade is roomy enough to seat seven people comfortably. There are excellent standard features like a heated steering wheel with power-tilting-and telescoping, power-adjustable pedals, leather upholstery, front seats that are heated and ventilated and two heated second-row captain’s chairs. Buyers can also choose a three-seat bench to up the seating capacity to eight at no additional cost. To make the interior of the Escalade even more comfortable, there are options like premium leather upholstery, front seats that are 18-way power-adjustable, massaging front seats, as well as power-retractable steps. Standard equipment also includes LATCH car-seat connectors with an anchoring upper tether to protect young children. When the Escalade is parked, an alert sounds reminding the driver to check the seats in the back.

Interior Features 
A tri-zone automatic climate control system, an 8-inch touch screen with navigation, Bluetooth, HD radio, satellite radio, a 16-speaker Bose surround-sound system, smartphone integration and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are all standard equipment on the Escalade. So is wireless device charging, a Wi-Fi hot spot, five USB ports, active park assist, parking sensors in the front and rear, a 360-degree parking camera, along with a Teen Driver system. Some of the Escalade’s optional features include a head-up display, a sunroof and a Blu-ray entertainment system in the back seat.

Safety And Driver Assistance 
Today’s Escalade also comes with a wide range of safety and driver assistance technology. Some of the most popular ones include forward collision warning, adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, a safety alert seat, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, driver drowsiness monitoring, blind spot monitoring and rear cross traffic alert. There are also a host of other built-in high-tech interior and exterior features that are designed to protect the safety of anyone that drives or ride in an Escalade.

Continual Improvements And Upgrades 
The Escalade has been upgraded every year since it was launched 20 years ago. It was redesigned in 2007 with all models being powered by the 6.2-liter, V-9 engine. In 2009, Chevy added the Escalade Hybrid which had a 6.0-liter V-9 engine, along with two 60kW electric motors. Together they produce 379 horsepower and 367 pound-feet or more of torque. The Escalade Hybrid, which was sold until 2013, delivered 20 mpg in city driving and 23 mpg on the highway by the time its model cycle ended and it was discontinued along with the Escalade half-truck EXT.

The 2015 model year is when Cadillac launched the current-generation Escalade with innovative, excellent improvements and upgrades that make this Escalade arguably the best version yet of this hot-selling Cadillac. Now built on a stiffer K2XX platform, the new Escalade looks a lot more distinguished than ever before. It has stacked LED headlamps, fantastic looking satin-chrome exterior finishes and tailfin-invoking vertical taillights. Plus, the current Escalade is powered by a 420 horsepower, 6.2-liter, V-8 engine that delivers 460 pound-feet of torque, yet it’s more efficient than the model it replaced.

Pop Culture Darling 
The Escalade has had a significant pop culture impact, as well as become affluent suburban families’ darling, especially those that tow boats, since debuting 20 years ago. Hollywood celebrities and hip-hop artists have embraced the Escalade as their own. They have continued to purchase Escalades even as gas prices have trended upwards and sales of other luxury vehicles have become stagnant. Driving an Escalade still holds a certain cachet and the vehicle continues to attract a loyal following.

A Glorious Past And Bright Future 
Boucher Cadillac invites you to join the Escalade’s 20th anniversary celebration at Boucher Cadillac and Frank Boucher Cadillac  in the Milwaukee area or Racine, Wisconsin. At Boucher you can choose the classic or next-generation Escalade you want from their wide selection.
