    PostCadillac News: Cadillac flagship gets the green light

    Filed under: Sedan, Cadillac, Luxury

    Automotive News reports Cadillac is gearing up to produce a new flagship sedan. Unnamed sources indicate General Motors has given the go-ahead in an attempt to counter German luxury manufacturers in more segments. Word has it the machine will ride on a rear-wheel drive chassis in order to attract BMW 7 Series buyers and will likely debut around 2015.

    is already moving to reposition the Cadillac stable to better engage BMW and Mercedes-Benz. Those efforts started with the addition of the small ATS and the XTS large sedan, though Cadillac is expected to launch a larger CTS model next year to compete more effectively with the BMW 5 Series.

    So, where does the newcomer fit into that mix? The unnamed model will reportedly ride on a new Omega platform and will borrow design elements from the very-attractive Cadillac Ciel Concept that debuted at Pebble Beach. Details are scarce, but Automotive News reports the model may make use of a 3.6-liter V6 as well as a V8 and an eight-speed automatic transmission.

    The article also makes mention of a new large crossover on the horizon. The bruiser is expected to make use of the Lambda platform, which underpins models like the Chevrolet Traverse, Buick Enclave and GMC Acadia. GM certainly knows how to milk a cow dry.Cadillac flagship gets the green light originally appeared on Autoblog on Mon, 23 Jul 2012 13:31:00 EST. Please see our terms for use of feeds.
