Why is Cadillac making their cars all sharp-edged, they all look crappy now. All, including the CTS, STS, DTS, SRX. However, the newcomer XLR and the Escalade line-up look great. I wish they would have stuck to the rounder Cadillac styles.
I think they took a huge risk by redesigning with sharp edges. I mean, the performance has been totally upgraded, but the outside designs do not look luxurious. My personal favorite years are 1994-2004.
The new DTS and the Deville are great looking but I agree the new styles of STS are garbage. I have the 1995 STS and I get at least an offer a week from strangers in traffic, carwashes, grocery store parking lots, etc... wanting to buy it from me. I don't even like the new Escalades because the body style makes them look plastic. But the new performance engines are something to be admired.
I work valet, and I have driven the new STS a few times. Up close, it looks decent.The interior is outstanding, and the performance is great. I just cant bear to drive a $50,000 vehicle that looks like its $30,000 little brother CTS.
Its a good thing none of the public agree with you guys. Cadillac is selling better than it ever has. I agree the DTS will be a hard sell mostly because its a car for older people. But as long as they leave it front wheel drive and with a ignition key it will sell.
