Cadillac flagship gets the green light
GM is already moving to reposition the Cadillac stable to better engage BMW and Mercedes-Benz. Those efforts started with the addition of the small ATS and the XTS large sedan, though Cadillac is expected to launch a larger CTS model next year to compete more effectively with the BMW 5 Series.
So, where does the newcomer fit into that mix? The unnamed model will reportedly ride on a new Omega platform and will borrow design elements from the very-attractive Cadillac Ciel Concept that debuted at Pebble Beach. Details are scarce, but Automotive News reports the model may make use of a 3.6-liter V6 as well as a V8 and an eight-speed automatic transmission.
The article also makes mention of a new large crossover on the horizon. The bruiser is expected to make use of the Lambda platform, which underpins models like the Chevrolet Traverse, Buick Enclave and GMC Acadia. GM certainly knows how to milk a cow dry.
