    Re: The Cadillac XTS is a "near" full size car

    I absolutely love the profile and especially the rear of the XTS, and I NEVER like the back end of new cars as they evolve. I feel as though all Cadillacs have been evolving to the perfection that the XTS rear has become. The front is a little too chesty or choo choo train to me, but that's Cadillac and I accept it. One of the reasons I loved buying the 09 CTS-V is the fact that the chesty look was broken up by a lower grille. For years programmers have been toying with cad programs (forgive the pun) making cars evolve to look like they have been virtually inflated like a balloon and this car seems to have blown up and then deflated a little into a chiseled vehicle with character and presence. I really like the lower dual exhaust ports on the concept too. The XTS is gonna look like a gangster with a buff double-breasted suit on with the right color and wheels combination. :crack of bat: home run for the design team.

    How could NorthStar production end in 2010 when they were still making them for DTS up until a few months ago??? I guess the XLR is also gone since 2009, so it was just the STS thru 2010 and DTS through this summer for NorthStars...

    RWD Northstar production ended in 2010. Last year of STS was V6 only.
