On his 37th birthday, Cristiano Ronaldo was presented a black-coloured Cadillac Escalade by his partner and leading fashion model Georgina Rodriguez. In a video shared by Georgina on her Instagram handle, Ronaldo is seen being amazed by the surprise gift her partner gave him on his birthday eve.

It is interesting to note that the Cadillac Escalade is not available officially across Europe. It indicates that the Escalade presented to Ronaldo is a private import from the United States of America, where the SUV is priced at $100,000 (approximately Rs 75 lakh). However, the cost of the SUV must have been higher for Georgina, given that the SUV might have attracted the import duties and other taxes.

The new Cadillac Escalade joins the likes of exclusive cars in Ronaldo’s collection, such as Bugatti Chiron, Bugatti Veyron, Bugatti Centodieci, Ferrari T12 TDF, McLaren Senna, Lamborghini Aventador, Mercedes-AMG G63 tuned by Brabus, Maserati GranCabrio, Rolls Royce Cullinan and Bentley Continental GT Speed.

Manufactured by General Motors, the Cadillac Escalade is currently in its fifth generation and is known for its massive and premium road presence, thus making it one of the most desirable full-sized SUVs in the world. Measuring 5.5 metres in length, the Escalade is a three-row, eight-seater full-sized SUV primarily sold in North America.

The premium SUV is packed to the gill with features like leather upholstery, full-TFT wide driver’s cockpit including a wide and crisp instrument console and touch-sensitive infotainment screen, rear entertainment screens, Wi-Fi hotspot, panoramic sunroof, powered and heated front seats and 19-speaker Studio sound system. The SUV is also available with a wide range of ADAS features like lane-departure warning, lane keep assist, autonomous emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, front and rear pedestrian detection and more.

Powering the Cadillac Escalade is a massive 6.2-litre supercharged V8 petrol engine, which happens to be the biggest engine used in a modern luxury SUV. Available with a four-wheel drive and 10-speed automatic gearbox, this engine propels the SUV from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.9 seconds.
