Following the rollout of the 2013 ATS and XTS, Cadillac is not content to rest on its crest-and-laurels. According to a report by TheDetroitBureau.com, the two models are merely the first volley in a larger onslaught of new models.

Though Cadillac doesn't aim to take on the German competitors "car-for-car," it's looking to aggressively expand its lineup. According to Cadillac marketing executive Don Butler, "These are fun, happy times at Cadillac... we're expanding and elevating the brand."

According to Butler, the ATS will be followed by "ten new models in the next three years." In addition to a replacement for the Escalade SUV and the CTS range moving up the ladder to better compete with the BMW 5 Series, word is there will be a compact crossover on the way to slot under the SRX. The new CUV would take on the likes of the X1 and Audi Q3. So while Cadillac says it doesn't intend to compete with the Germans directly, it certainly won't walk away from a fight in certain key market segments.

As expected, in the rollout of models will be a Cadillac version of the Chevrolet Volt, dubbed the ELR. It will be joined by perhaps more than one 'flagship' model. The redesigned Escalade will represent one of those flagships, while some version of the Cadillac Ciel concept is said to be headed for production – albeit a toned-down production reality from the stunning concept you see above. This production Ciel – we're betting on a flagship sedan – will share the Omega platform with a large sedan slotted above the XTS.

The first of these vehicles could be in production as soon as 2014.

      This is what I have alway wanted to see....Cadillac take a serious attack on the luxury market. The design is stunning and their cars are iconic. Please bring back American luxury like it should have been all along.

      One word; SIXTEEN Yes, I know it is an old concept, but now is the time to actually build it. Use it to be a REAL halo car. And don't look for it to be a mass market car, but rather something akin to a Roll, Bentley, Maybach, or a the Mercedes S. It would do wonders for the the image of the brand to produce something really special, not just luxury knock-offs trying to compete with the Germans and Lexus. Will they sell? If you have ever seen it, of course they will!

      What I figure: ELR The Caddy-volt. I always thought the Volt should have been a Caddy to begin with to make the price more palatable. New CTS Sedan New CTS Coupe New CTS Wagon All three will be based on the Alpha platform, which was designed to be lengthened and widened easily. ATS Coupe -they gotta do this one. No doubt -V variants of the new CTS and ATV will be coming. Omega Sedan - I've heard it will be inspired by the Sixteen concept. Omega Convertible - Influenced by the Ciel concept. New Escalade - Not sure if it will continue on the GMT platform, but likely. New CUV - Possibly based on the same new platform that will underpin the next Cruze, Equinox, etc. This platform is lighter and designed to be used for a wide variety of vehicles. I'd love to see Cadillac develop an updated version of the Cien concept car. A super-luxurious high performance mid-engine two-seater would be a truly bold statement. This won't happen unless GM relaxes their "nothing can be faster then the Corvette" rule.

      Good for them! At least they're trying; unlike Lincoln. Actually Lincoln is trying but Ford won't cut them any slack.

      they shouldn't change the look of the Cien... please oh please keep the shape of the car just the way it is, perhaps some more affordable and practical power train options, but don't dumb down the look of the car.

      What a beautiful car.....BUILD IT GM!!! I hope it does not end up like the Sixteen concept, that was an awesome car they SHOULD have built, maybe without the 16 cylinder engine, but it would have been just as beautiful with a nice v6 or v8.

        Support GM, help them become more profitable. That will increase their stock prices and encourage the Feds to sell them.

        Go support your local Gubberment owned car maker, by a GM product, and get your money back that much quicker. Actually, what's your share? Send me your address, I'll send you a check if you'll STFU and stop repeating tired FAUX news anger points.

        At Lincoln they are sitting around and taking a nap and dreaming that they work at Cadillac and that they are Cadillac . They are also wondering if maybe they can get a job at Cadillac when Lincoln is canceled .
