my first love in cars is cadillac....BUT. i dont understand why i need all wheel drive in a luxury large Caddy.



my Deville has plenty of performance for what it is. i NEVER run it hard, as in touring. I guess im older at 46 and dont want AWD in a cadillac.

It expands their sales because people in colder climates like AWD. I'm guessing, like the cts, you can get it in a 2wd version

Am I the only one who sees the camera in the mirror thing as a problem? I'm sure someone with enough motive could hack in to that and watch where you're going in the car at all times.

still.... i do love the cadillac enginering and styling that is finding its way into other marques....even if they(other companies) cant execute it right.



for our needs, a cts is just too small. Ride is critical. technology, whole driving experience. For me asnd tracy, no other brand is close.


my sis had a 2011 Jag XF, and it was ok, but too small and rode too rough. then she got a 2012 land rover. both good, but not a cadillac.

Luxury is taking a different tone lately. Look where Cadillac is trying to place themselves. Races cars, awd, the V series. There's a level of sportiness that gives the most luxurious some extra edge. Look at BMW, Audi, Mercs... Lexus is trying to do the same thing with their F brand. The big fluffy cruisers are a dying breed, but if you want them Buick is still around.

Even Buick has changed from the "big fluffy cruisers." I was at a Buick dealership the other day and was amazed at what they had in the new car showroom. Actually they are one of the few car brands that every car in their lineup is "acceptable" transportation. The Regal is really nice - just the back seat is too small for a full time family car. All of their cars get decent, if not great reviews.

A Deville by XTS or any other name is still a Deville.

Seniors are going to hate the CUE stuff.

I agree with this. I understand GM targeting the younger buyers with the tech, but Cadillac has always been a "seniors" brand. This could scare off potential buyers.

It may scare off the few old folks looking for them but i bet the market for younger crowds looking for this kinda rig is way higher. I love caddies and am trying to get my gf into a CTS-4 sometime soon

Young people are looking at German and Japanese luxury cars, not Cadillacs and especially not gigantic, FWD, V6 only Cadillacs.
