Cadillac reveals its first electric vehicle

Cadillac shocks Detroit Auto Show with electric SUV preview

This is Cadillac’s first fully electric car

On the eve of the 2019 Detroit Auto Show, Cadillac has surprised the media with a first look at an upcoming electric crossover SUV, perhaps the first of many electric vehicles to come for the marque.

Cadillac's electric crossover is expected to be a mid-size model created to take on the Tesla Model X and offer buyers the choice of two or three rows of seats.

After finding plenty of success many years ago with its Ford Escape Hybrid, and then sitting out the hybrid-SUV market for many years, the 2020 Ford Explorer Hybrid marks a return to form for the company. Its 3.0-liter EcoBoost engine is projected to deliver 400 horsepower and 415 pound-feet of torque, expected to push the SUV to a top speed of 143 miles per hour.

Her dog, Henry, was antsy and wanted to go for a walk. "In my mind, I said, 'oh, that can't be the same person, '" she said. He took her to a cabin that he said was his, ordered her into a bedroom and told her to take off her clothes.

Visually, Explorer ST stands apart from the rest of the lineup courtesy of a black mesh grille insert, liftgate applique, lower bodyside details, roof-rack side rails and skid plate elements.

Beyond making life a little greener for SUV owners, Explorer chief engineer Bill Gubing points out that "Reduced cargo space in hybrids is a thing of the past for Ford customers". Both rely on 21-inch aluminum wheels to transfer power to the road, but with different performances when it comes to braking, for instance.

The newest additions to the all-new Explorer family - built at Ford Chicago Assembly Plant - will join base, XLT, Limited and Platinum models in showrooms. Leather sport bucket seats with micro-perforations, City Silver accent stitching and ST logo complete the sporty feel.

The new platform will be flexible, and adaptable to front-, rear- and all-wheel-drive configurations.

As previously revealed, the Explorer Hybrid will have a 3.3-liter V-6 and a 10-speed automatic transmission that incorporates a modular hybrid system.
