Rumormill: Cadillac could debut facelifted XLR in July

The Corvette-based XLR was supposed to be Cadillac's flagship. So how come we'd rather have the new CTS-V, and why did Eli choose the upcoming Escalade Hybrid as his Super Bowl MVP prize? If the rumors are to be believed, Cadillac hopes to correct that with an updated version of the top-of-the-line roadster this summer.

The production XLR made quite a splash with its EVOQ-ative, edgy styling at the 2003 Detroit show, and it's been on the road essentially unchanged since its introduction in 2004, which would make it just about due for a facelift. We'd expect a revised XLR – and accompanying facelift for the supercharged XLR-V (above) – to get a bigger mouth as the most prominent of the styling updates.
