Cadillac unveils its all new convertible, Ciel
Cadillac, owned by General Motors, is the second oldest automobile manufacturer in America after Buick.
"A grand gesture that explores themes driving Cadillac's explorations into range-topping flagship luxury", was the statement released by Cadillac about the Ciel.
The Ciel, which means sky in French, has a 3.6 liter direct-injection V6 engine paired up with lithium-ion battery. The car has an amazing exterior design with a wheelbase of 125 inches, vertical LED head and tail lamps, 265/35R22 tires on billet aluminum wheels.
Clay Dean, Cadillac's global design director, said "Large, expressive luxury is innate to Cadillac, and the Ciel recalls that heritage, while suggesting where the brand can go in the future."
It will be a grand four-door, four-passenger car. The front and the rear door handles are placed side by side with the 'suicide' rear door motion.
This convertible is one foot longer than the Cadillac CTS. It has an estimated 425 hp and 430 lb-ft of torque. It will be fuel economical and it comes with a dual-mode hybrid transmission system which allows all-electric driving at low speeds.
It will have an aromatherapy system that can be controlled by the passengers at the rear. The Cadillac Ciel features pull-out blankets to cover the passengers under cold weather conditions.
Cadillac has pioneered the modern mass production of automobiles and has also established itself as America's premier luxury car brand.
