Cadillac fits Escalade with advanced suspension
Dubai, April 15, 2009
General Motors’ Cadillac has made its Escalade Platinum the world’s first SUV to be equipped with Cadillac’s highly advanced magnetic ride control (MRC) technology.
This highly advanced suspension system replaces conventional mechanical-valve shocks with electronically controlled shocks filled with a synthetic fluid containing minute iron particles.
Under the presence of magnetic charge, the iron particles align to provide dampening resistance almost instantly.
“MRC is the world’s fastest reacting suspension system which in real-time driving situations has sensors reading and ultra fast computers analyzing road conditions in one-millisecond intervals.” said Adib Takieddine, marketing manager for Cadillac in the Middle East.
The MRC technology gives the Escalade Platinum more precise body motion control, very much like the CTS-V sedan and Corvette ZR1 where it is also used.
This unique feature is not found in any of the competitors in the large luxury SUV segment, thus exclusive to the Cadillac Escalade Platinum and Escalade ESV Platinum, said a report. – TradeArabia News Service
