The new Presidential Limousine was revealed today--its styling is not based on the DTS as the current Presidential Limousine was based--unfortunately. :hmm:The current limo looks much classier than this mixture of parts--tail lamps from the STS, chrome bumper in rear like a CTS, front lights and door mirrors from the Escalade . . . you get the idea. Here's how much brand recognition Cadillac is achieving with this non-descript look:

How unfortunate--the current DTS based Presidential Limousine has much more class!

The link above has been corrected--originally, the reporter said "the new Presidential Limo is made by Chrysler . . . "

Anyways, granted it has the necessary, more tank-like, security, it still represents further erosion of Cadillac's brand recognition! :ill:

Not as bad as Katie Couric on NY Channel 2
All day she referred to the vehicle as the presidental limo, the black car, the lead limo. Then at one point they switch to a still pic of it, and she told ablut its tires, and some of the security features and the on board satellite and and and and .... NEVER once called it a Cadillac, ot said it was a Cadillac made by General Motors... Never once outta a 7 minute yak yak about it.

Dummy prbably had no idea WTF it was.

You can bet the farm if it was a MB she would told 4 times it's a mer-SAY=dees Benz, made by mer-SAY=dees Benz

This one's for Katie :thepan:

Nice ride. If you can't tell it's a Cadillac, you don't know your Cadillac......
