Every single Cadillac XTS (http://www.autoblog.com/tag/cadillac+xls) post ends up with comments deploring the sedan's FWD - even a post that speaks of nothing more than the iPad buyers will get (http://www.autoblog.com/2012/05/09/2013-cadillac-xts-to-come-standard-with-ipad/) with the car. For those folks especially, Car and Driver has loaded the hopper with news on the possible treats coming from the Wreath and Crest. Examining uses of the Omega platform, C/D says "a proper rear-drive sedan" will arrive in "a few" years and take the top spot in the lineup. Predictions are that it will have a rakish roofline and the 310-horsepower, 3.6-liter V6.

GM's Omega platform is said to have been engineered to accommodate this new RWD flagship, though the chances of it actually coming to fruition are about as likely as winning the Mega Millions. The only trifles, according to C/D, are that the program hasn't even been approved, and if it is, would Cadillac have an engine good enough to serve in such a car or would it need to develop one. But said flagshp does, we repeat, it does, have a platform. Still, since the Cadillac Sixteen concept is from a time when "Gaga" is what babies said, you should probably stick to the Mega Millions for now.More details emerge about new RWD Cadillac flagship (http://www.autoblog.com/2012/05/10/more-details-emerge-about-new-rwd-cadillac-flagship/) originally appeared on Autoblog (http://www.autoblog.com) on Thu, 10 May 2012 13:30:00 EST.

Maybe the deal with PSA could bring a DS9 derived model for Cadillac? It is big enough and has hybrid technology...
