The Escala is about 6 inches longer than the current large Caddy sedan, the CT6.

The lighting elements are made of organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs).

The exterior is positively lovely, but the interior is pulling some serious weight, as well.

Its central control module is a prototype for future production models, allowing the driver to execute "tactile commands," along with voice and gesture control.

It's powered by a 4.2-liter, twin-turbocharged V8 engine, which can drop down to four cylinders thanks to GM's active cylinder deactivation.
