I saw the concept pictures, and I believe if the SLS was offered in the USA it would sell. The main reason the STS is a slow seller is because it mirrors the CTS too much. Even me an owner can hardly see the difference, I can only tell from the rear view of the car.

The additional rear seat room is very needed. The longer profile also gives the car a more substantial appearance.

Cadillac should make this model available in the USA, MAYBE EVEN REPLACE THE CURRENT MODEL WITH THE EXTENDED MODEL.

This is what the STS SHOULD have looked like originally!

Gary I agree! Look at the quality of the wood, the leather stitching, and that rear console. The overall stance of the car looks more luxurious, what's wrong with Cadillac, why aren't they building that here. Even the gauges, it is a successor to the Seville 2004!

With a power upgrade to the Northstar III 375 HP, it would be a Lexus Contender. To compete with the S-Class, 7 Series, or the new Lexus LS460 L, it would have to have more than 400 HP and 7 speed Auto.
