    Hello Megeebee.
    Well, i live in sweden and likes, and drive a car that is 6 meters long, and are surronded with "european sized cars" for example the saab 9-3.
    So the last thing i want is that the caddys shrink even more.
    I also think that cadillac schouldn have "remake" the wonderful emblem they had pre 2002.
    The new sharp bodylines of cadillac does not look to bad, it's just that in my word, do real cadillacs not look like that, but as i have wrote before, I'm stuck in the seventees cars.

    So it doesn't stand for Brougham Luxury Sedan?

    On another note: How come Cadillac is going from the good old names to these cryptic letters? I never really liked how BMW, Porsche, Mercedes, etc. used letters and numbers to designate their cars. I mean... How much visual character can you pull from 328i, 944S, or CLK230? You hear "deVille", you think "Classy, yet casual." You read "Brougham", you think "Comfortable land yacht."

    I've sent a letter to a Cadillac official a year ago and received the following answer:


    Hello,

    Thank you for your interest in learning what our abbreviations mean. As you will notice, there is a strategy behind the structure...

    Our nomenclature breaks down as follows:
    XLR: X-series luxury roadster
    CTS: C-series touring sedan
    SRX: S-series reconfigurable crossover
    STS: S-series touring sedan
    DeVille DHS: DeVille high-luxury sedan
    DeVille DTS: DeVille touring sedan
    Escalade SUV: Sport utility vehicle
    Escalade ESV: Escalade stretch vehicle
    Escalade EXT: Escalade crossover truck
    V-Series: High performance vehicles

    I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any other questions.

    So, the BLS stands for B-series Luxury Sedan.

    Re: BLS stands for...

    184" is pretty big for a B-segment car... B-series would be more fitting with the rest of the Cadillac nomenclature. Or maybe it's actually Baby (for Cadillac) Luxury Saloon...

    I think this can compete with Japanese imports if they make it over to the US, pretty nice little car IMO and looks like the next Catera without the failure

    I'd take the 2.8 V6 and make it fast and furious...
