    Not bad. Perhaps a glimpse of what a CTS wagon will look like.

    They need to lose the roof rack (at least make it optional as 99% of us will never use it and it would look much sleeker without) and add an Ultraview sunroof though.

    Never heard of flexpower. I never seen any bio-ethanol offered at any gas station in Europe.

    I like it! After having two wagons.. I am considering getting a newer wagon in the next year or so. They are so versatile and less cumbersome than a SUV. I have been looking at SRT8 Magnums, but this is a possibility!... if only they will bring it here

    I would guess that it's too short. You need something the size of an STS to have adequate room for third row seating (like the SRX, for example).

    Big cars need three rows of seats. I'd like that, anyhow. You shouldn't have to buy either a wagon or an SUV to have them. Instead of having a third row and a hatch, just extend it a tiny bit, add a trunk and you'll have something like a limo but not as long. Throw in swivel second row seats and everybody's happy inside...

    You do understand this is a re-badged SAAB
    .
    I think that SAAB and Subaru share a or two also.

    The BLS as a sedan, coupe and wagon is a "must do" for introduction into the U.S. market as an entry level product in the Cadillac portfolio and needs to have entry level pricing, luxury and performance amenities and options that would include engine options with both the 2.8 liter and 3.6 liter SFI.

    The CTS in it's second generation has grown in size and amenities and it's about time that both Cadillac and the motoring world stop comparing the CTS on entry level pricing with that of the smaller 3 series BMW when in fact the CTS is more akin to the BMW 5 series and Audi A6 etc. And as such, the CTS line should include a coupe, sedan, convertible and wagon with two engine options to include the 3.6DI as standard equipment, and a larger displacement 3.8 DI producing 350 hp and 300 ft lbs. of torque. The price spread between these two engine options should reflect a base price difference of approximately $3000.00

    I know better than to never say never; BUT....I doubt that we'll ever see a diesel in any Cadilac platform in the U.S. Market.

    THe 2.9 Turbo diesel is a "must" for the Euro market if for no other reason than offering this alternative due to increasing runaway Euro gasoline prices and not so much for CAFE standards or performance.

    The BLS has to come to the United States in order to attract more entry level buyers based on price and perceived quality as the CTS portfolio in its various trim levels continues to rise.

    You will continue to see more RPO trim options availble in the CTS and a corresponding increase in base price as well for the 2 door coupe as a traditional hardtop without the B pillar and the same as a retractable hardtop convertible.

    BLS is a car that actually looks better as a wagon.
