    Re: Cadillac BLS

    I didn't like the name at first either (and I'm a supporter of Cadillac's new naming policy). While CTS, XLR, etc. sound very edgy and modern, BLS sounds terrible (perhaps from the fat looking and sounding B at the front of it's name). But then I thought of how BLS would be pronounced were it a word. "Bliss" I kind of like that. The Cadillac Bliss.
    Anyways....


    The little BLS may end up being quite the performer.
    Saab just announced a new wagon version of the 9-3. It is powered by the same 2.8l Turbo V-6 that will be the top engine in the BLS.
    How does a 2.8-liter turbo V-6 making 250 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque in a car smaller than the CTS sound?

    Like Germans crying?

    It actually looks pretty good from that angle.
    Wish they would show it in a color besides baby blue though...

    I also wonder if those wheels are going to make it into production. What size are those?

    ...I was wondering that as well. It's my impression that Europeans have more conservative tastes in that realm. But then again, a conservative person wouldn't be buying such a stand-out car, would they?

    In German it would be pronounced "Bearhh-L-Sssss". I many Eastern and Central European languages, the name will come off much better than in English, or French for the matter. "B" isn't a strong sound in English, but is in many other languages. I wouldn't be surprised if they change the name if marketed in France.

    I hope Caddy nails this one, because they haven't had much luck with small cars...
