    Yeah i dont really see the resemblance either, but who knows. I think the exterior looks great. I dont like the look of the rear headrest monitors. The dash looks good, but I dont like the LCD gauges.

    Interior looks enticing but the exterior just does not have that stand out Cadillac feel. Car looks sharp, but it doesn't have any of that agressive look. Seems like the designers went from trying to stand out from the German luxury sedans and tried to blend in with the Japanese higher end family sedans. I agree with that avalon comparison. I think this looks way better than the Avalon but it looks like it is set to compete with it. I want to compete with the BMW 5 series again!

    I think its great. was worried that it would loose the STS look but it did'nt




















    Looks like the LaCrosse from the side. Still has the STS front end styling. I never liked the DTS. Glad they went AWD. Wheels are ok. Needs some more chrome. 9.0

    I wish the C-pillar was more upright. Nice face.

    @Jesda:

    As a moderator, can you pls find out why ON THE DAY that the XTS came out, the XTS forum became inaccessible?

    @all: Love the interior, will probably get to like the exterior, and, like the rest of us, will get used to having to live with Hybrid.

    AWD sounds good, though, got to love it on my STS4!

    Re: Cadillac XTS

    I really have serious reservations about this program. I think the design is beautiful but the LaCrosse platform is FWD based. Sure it can be AWD but so can a minivan. The current SRX in my mind was an attempt to once again fool Cadillac customers--it has a lot of the right look and features but it is and never will be an enthusiasts' car. The STS was on the right track with a chassis that could fulfill what a driver's machine needed to be. The only remaining vehicle left on the Sigma platform will be the CTS, and I can't imagine that the downtown Lansing plant will survive on that alone. The XTS could be a decent DTS replacement but definitely not an STS. Maybe what we remember as an STS truly is gone. Now there is a bit of a potential surprise in all of this--the fact that it will be built in Oshawa doesn't necessarily mean that it will be built on the LaCrosse underpinnings. Remember that the RWD Camaro (aka pontiac G8 chassis) is also built there.

    I think it looks great. GM has always done a good job at making their new vehicles look great and the older ones then look dated. It's a good blend between the DTS and STS.

    Beautiful. If it has the goodies my STS has -- adaptive cruise, remote start, heads-up display, and blind spot detection -- I may be trading in a little earlier than I had expected to!

    That does seem like it could be uncomfortable.
