    Saw the Coupe at the auto show in Cleveland in person. The Shield is really nice and sweeping in style; fits the new grill perfectly. People, get over it....the emblem has changed numerous times over the years; it was time for a change.

    Time for a change? Why? Just curious. The territory Cadillac is moving into (Mercedes, BMW) has had the same emblem for eons.

    Needed changing, but this is too basic and bland. Maybe they will follow up over the next few years by adding a little color like the printed logos have. Wish they wouldn't try dating these cars every year.

    Starting in mid 2014 all Caddys coming off the production line will have the new emblem.

    No they havent

    BMW

    Mercedes

    Also keep in mind that Mercedes took the additional step of eliminating the hood ornament

    Cadillac didn't just change the emblem to refresh things, they also wanted more design flexibility so don't be surprised if you see the crest on the hood a-la BMW, and Mercedes in future designs

    I think European safety rules in 2005 spelled the demise of the hood ornament.

    I disagree because Rolls Royce still has them....i'm pretty sure it was aerodynamics for fuel economy and vandalism, the latter concern Rolls Royce solved by having the 'Spirit of Ecstasy' retract when the vehicle is turned off

    Well, somehow I think in the automotive world, having the same Mercedes star since 1933 constitutes an eon. As for the BMW, though, I mean WOW, what a DRAMATIC change over the years.

    Give me a break.....

    I think the new flagship LTS should have the good ornament. I mean the S,E,C Benzes still do.

    As long as they don't call it an LTS.
