I love cadillac. I drove a cadillac DST back in the states and the one word that describes this car is comfort. The most comfortable ride i ever had in any cars.

If i were in the states and had the money my choice would be between a Cadillac and a corvette

Any chance to see the lower priced Cadillac to hit India in the future?

Looks like a baby CTS to me. Hope it looks different than CTS. Most cadys look same these days.
If it looses those ugly wheels and gain a good diesel powerplant, they have a potential competitor on their hand.
I, personally would never prefer an American over a German. and the same goes with the car ;-)

With the brash Cadillac styling and diesel power plant, it's sure going to be hit in India.
But doubt if they launch it here first if they go for the top-down model strategy.
Lack of diesel in the rest of the line-up means we can't see a Caddy in Indian showrooms for another couple of years.
Sure aim at 3er and C with the RWD drivetrain ,4 pot petrol and diesels and A/T,M/T options.

I have always been a fan of the massive Cadillacs, especially the Cadillac Presidential Car.

And am sure this one will be equally great and stand true to the concept design. Bu few things will be missed, including the neat gear shifter that the concept car sported. Further, this one, considering tis power, would have been great to have in the AWD mode.

This car will be based on the Buick LaCrosse platform and will share some design elements as well. Pics below for reference

First few are of the concept

Observe the neat gear shifter, which will be missed on the production version

And finally, looking at the spy shot the center console reminds me of the Kizashi's console as well

Well ,@thedreamcatcher.
The massive Cadillac you have shown is the XTS FWD car.
There is already a thread existing started by sidindica for the XTS platform.
p.s- and by the scoop pics it seems that the cool gear knob has made it into production.

Managed to get some more pics.

@ Dicky: The knob has not made it into production as per sources on the internet. It has been replaced with a regular styled auto stick.

oops, sorry.
I thought you meant the positioning of the gearknob from the centre console to the steering column.

Cadillac's are cheaper than 3,C and A4 in the USA because of the made in USA factor. Whereas in Europe Cadillac's are marginally pricier. Read it somewhere in GMInsideNews.


Cadillac revealed the ATS back in January. Here you go,



Other pics seen here

And the SuperBowl Commercial they aired in Feb,



Do take a look at ATS/The Journey here and here
Car guys seriously don't miss the above.
