Cadillac’s new luxury interior door knob: It’s a real luxury
By Mike FusaroPosted September 15, 2018 05:38:16 Cadillac’s newest interior door knob, which it has announced it is launching in November, is not for your average user, but for the top-of-the-line.
In a statement, the brand said it was designed to make it easier for the driver to reach a door knob with his hands.
Cadillac said the new door knob will be available in a variety of colors.
The knob, with an angled tip and rounded shape, will have three metal knobs that open or close when a driver needs to access a door.
The new door knokles will be able to be worn in a single-piece style, and are meant to be used for locking and unlocking doors, and opening doors, respectively.
The automaker said the knob will feature an LED light that will dim when the knob is in use.
The knob has two “handgrip” buttons, the same size as the existing knob, but one that the user has to hold down, rather than using a thumb or pointer.
The handgrip button is used to adjust the knob, while the thumb button can be used to unlock the knob.
A third button on the knob controls the angle at which the knob can be opened or closed.
A small switch that is placed on the left side of the knob opens the knob to allow the driver or passenger to access the knob when it is not in use, and closes the knob automatically when it has been used.
Cars that come with the new Cadillac brand will come with two different knobs: one with an LED indicator light and one with no indicator light.
Cadillac said that the knob indicator light will change colors depending on the door knob it is being used on.
“The new Cadillac door knob is designed for the ultimate in luxury and convenience,” said Alain Guinet, chief executive officer of Cadillac’s luxury product group.
“With its ergonomic design, ergonomically-designed knobs and its sleek look, this knob will offer the perfect balance between performance and style.”
The brand is also introducing the first ever fully automatic door knob for the new 2017 model year, which comes with a new interior door latch and locking system.
The carmaker said the “automatically locked” feature will offer “the best of both worlds,” allowing drivers to access doors with a minimum of fuss.
