Why Cadillac’s Monterey Concept is Probably an SUV

Short and sweet one for you here.

First, we need to start with a rumor from early this year, sources close to the company shared with GMI future plans for an ultra-lux SUV aimed at the likes of Bentley, Rolls-Royce and Maybach. Now I’m not saying this concept will be the specific product outlined by our source, but I do believe it will be a glimpse at future ambitions in this space.

Second, Cadillac has been slowly strip teasing its new concept through social channels, and on Tuesday they shared an abstract shot of an avant-garde wing mirror, but the real bombshell was the blurred greenhouse in the background. If those are SUV-esque proportions I don’t know what is.

Lastly, today Cadillac dropped one last breadcrumb before the big reveal tonight. It’s called Escala, Spanish for “scale.”

So, what say you, is Cadillac’s new concept going to be an SUV?
