2020 Cadillac Ciel: Concept, Specs, Interior, Release Date & Price | Cadillac has released a luxury car concept. According to Cadillac, this new luxury car will be called “Ciel.” So far, Ciel has only existed as a concept. It has been unclear when will Cadillac realize it. That being said, despite being ‘only’ a concept, the 2020 Cadillac Ciel has attracted public attention. After all, if Ciel is released, it will compete against existing lineups in the luxury car market such as the S-Class, the A8, and the 7 Series.
Being a concept, there are many speculations and rumors regarding Cadillac’s upcoming luxury car. The information regarding Ciel is limited but it is interesting to talk about it. Do you want to know more? Well, if you do, just read on. Below, we will tell you things we know regarding the concept, performance, release date, and price of the upcoming luxury car.
2020 Cadillac Ciel Concept
The concept of the 2020 Cadillac Ciel has been unveiled not long ago. From this unveiling, we can say that the upcoming luxury car will be designed in the currently trending Germanic styling. It will look like a long yet low car with four doors. The rear doors will be rear-hinged. The cockpit will not be ‘open-air’ and its amazing interior will be visible from the outside.
The concept also includes holographic instrumentation as well as touch-sensitive pads put on each door handle. There is also wood trim on the front seatbacks. Interestingly enough, the concept of the Ciel does not have a roof. These seem improbable but then again, it is a concept. How Cadillac will execute it is another matter.
The concept, while adheres to the ‘Art and Science’ of Cadillac’s design language, also defies it by incorporating various organic curvatures on places where you may expect angles and planes. From the design perspective, the car is really luxurious.
As for the exterior, we can expect it to be a stylish, attractive, and of course, luxurious. According to a Cadillac official, the Ciel will incorporate a good amount of high-strength steel and aluminum. If that is true, then Ciel will have a ‘slim’ total weight. Consequently, it will also have improved not only performance but also fuel economy.
According to the concept, the overall length of the Ciel is 203.7-inch while its wheelbase is 125-inch. With this size, the Ciel is larger than the Audi A8 and BMW 7 while more or less has the same size as the current S-Class. From the size, it seems Cadillac is aiming to go after BMW’s ride and handling dynamics.
2020 Cadillac Ciel Interior
As a luxury car, the interior will have a luxurious, sophisticated, and modern look. Some rumors even suggested that the seating will be manufactured with the highest standards and will be covered with high-quality materials. These also apply to other parts, including the control table. The control table is said to have high-quality leather and wood covering it.
In terms of features, we can expect the upcoming 2020 Cadillac Ciel to get the latest infotainment system. Or better yet, a brand new infotainment system. It should also come with features such as a touchscreen display, Bluetooth, USB, Wi-Fi, navigation, traction control, rearview camera, parking assist, collision control warning system, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility, and a high-quality audio system
2020 Cadillac Ciel Specs
According to Cadillac’s concept, the 2020 Cadillac Ciel will come with a 3.6L, twin-turbo V6 engine. This engine will be able to generate up to 430 horsepower with 610 lb-ft of torque. This is quite high output but it shouldn’t be surprising. Such output is somewhat expected in a luxury car. Currently, it is not known with an automatic or manual gearbox the engine will be paired with.
There are also rumors that suggest the upcoming Ciel will get a hybrid engine as well. The hybrid version is said to use the same engine. The difference is that it will be paired to two electric motors. No further detail is known regarding the hybrid engine’s output.il
What makes Ciel interesting is that Cadillac’s decision to use a twin-turbo V6 engine instead of a V8 engine. The V8 engine is a powerful engine and it is often used in other luxury cars such as the S-Class, the A8, and the 7 Series. It seems that Cadillac wants to know how far a luxury can go without using a V8 engine. On its own, a twin-turbo V6 engine is powerful enough. Will it be enough to compete against other luxury cars with a V8 engine? No one knows. Only time will tell.
2020 Cadillac Ciel Release Date and Price
Cadillac has not yet revealed neither the release date nor the price of the 2020 Cadillac Ciel. This is not surprising considering the fact that the luxury car is still a concept and still under development. The concept has been revealed for several years now. We can only wait for further reveal for now.
As for the price, while we don’t know exactly how much it will be, we can safely say that it will cost over $100,000. The 2020 Cadillac Ciel is, after all, meant to be Cadillac’s luxury car. It is made to compete against Mercedes S-Class and the likes.
That’s all we know so far regarding Ciel. Despite being ‘only’ a concept at the moment, Ciel has attracted attention from many. The current Ciel concept suggests that the luxury car will have a distinguished Germanic styling that is currently popular right now. Another thing that makes it interesting is its engine. Unlike other luxury cars that are powered by a V8 engine, Cadillac is planning to use a twin-turbo V6 engine for the 2020 Cadillac Ciel. For now, let’s just wait and see how the Ciel will turn out.
Before we start, we would like to remind you that the 2020 Cadillac Ciel is still in concept. As such, it is possible that it will receive changes before its release. What we present here is more of an expectation based on available information rather than facts as official information regarding the model is still lacking. Also, the image we use is an illustration as there is no image of the real 2020 Ciel at the moment.
