2001 Cadillac Vizon Concept

Cadillac's 2001 concept car, the Vizón, slices boldly into the gap between sport utility vehicles and sport/performance wagons wîth sharp-edged Cadillac style. The Cadillac Vizón provides the functionality of a utility vehicle wîth the aesthetics, comfort and performance of a world-class sedan or wagon. It's a powerful, surefooted vehicle that surrounds the driver in modern luxury, style and connectivity. The Vizón seamlessly unites the best qualities of several different kinds of vehicle. It is versatile and functional, and like the Cadillac Evoq and Imaj show cars that immediately preceded it, remains the proud inheritor of the brand's latest blending of art and science.

The Vizón's four-passenger interior features leather seating wîth integrated heating and cooling. Passengers can enjoy infotainment systems such as a DVD player and built-in video screens. The driver's reconfigurable display panel, inspired by Bulgari jewelers, allows for tailoring information that appears on the instrument panel. The overall impression is calm, clean and pure, taking its inspiration from contemporary home and furniture design. The center console extends the length of the car's interior, forming a long box for skis and other activity cargo. This console also supports the front seating, eliminating unsightly and space-consuming rails from the floor under the seats.

The Vizón is powered by a 4.2-liter V8 Northstar engine. Road handling is assured in all conditions by all-wheel drive, now for the first time controlled by the StabiliTrak traction system. The suspension height can also be adjusted for different road and load conditions. While the features resemble an SÚV package, the Vizon delivers a very car-like ride as a result of this ingenious technology and a five-speed automatic transmission. (posted on conceptcarz.com) On the highway, an advanced cruise control system monitors traffic ahead and automatically adjusts the car's speed to maintain a safe following distance. When the obstruction clears, the Vizón resumes its set cruising speed.

The Cadillac Vizón's electronically operated liftgate rises to expose a very practical rear storage area. The load floor in the rear also lifts to form a shelf or to reveal even more storage tucked away. An integrated roof rack allows ease of transporting equipment for a weekend of skiing at a high-end resort or scuba gear for an exclusive underwater adventure. The large power sunroof opens two ways to maximize open-air sensations. The front portion of the panel angles upward for venting, while the larger rear panel retracts into the roof.

The artistic side of the Vizón's includes Bose speakers and a DVD player wîth a built-in screen for the rear passengers. Its science encompasses night vision, a rear-view video system, adaptive cruise control and the StabiliTrak traction control system. As the driver approaches the vehicle, a system called EZ Key identifies the owner through a chip embedded in the key fob; the car unlocks itself and sets seating and mirrors to the driver's position. As the engine starts, a sliding cover on the instrument panel opens to reveal a reconfigurable three-panel instrument display, which allows the driver to choose how and where data about the car is displayed. On the road, the latest version of the OnStar Virtual Advisor offers turn-by-turn navigation through a satellite speaker phone. Even the Vizón's exterior lighting is a blend of art and science. Xenon light projected through Fresnel lenses creates a sharp, slender vertical look for headlamps and taillights …a Cadillac signature.
