    They can postpone it indefinitely, if they can scrape together a V8 and another foot of interior room...

    I'm afraid nobody cares too much anymore.
    More and more people see this hideous abomination in person, and are switching from no to hell no.
    It may be delayed for 4-6 years for all I care, I certainly won't be buying this.
    The Germans never had it this easy.

    What? Everyone from tech sites to car magazines are excited about the car and like what they see. You guys who think the opinion of 4 outspoken curmudgeons here on CF represent the entire automotive world make me laugh.

    You obviously haven't read any European magazines/websites/forums about this car, have you?
    Well I have (yes I can read dutch/french/german/spanish), and the Europeans think this car is a joke, and makes THEM laugh.

    We don't live in Europe, and therefore don't care.

    The problem is - too much of the media is calling this Cadillac's "flagship" model. That's not what it is. When the European media gets a hold of the XTS being touted as Cadillac's "flagship" to "take on the likes of the 7-Series, S-Class and Audi A8", they laugh. The thing is, what are they laughing at? Misinformation...

    Cadillac is working on a true premium, full-size, rear wheel drive V8 flagship. This isn't it...

    OK, seriously... For someone who is so concerned w/the "opinions" of others toward the topic vehicle, you sure are pushy with yours...when trolling.

    They're valid criticisms; it's not the first time they'll be seen and it won't be the last. Now, some are more...vocal...than others, but that's their prerogative.

    Re: 2013 Cadillac XTS Production Delayed 4-6 Weeks

    Sal's on to something here... the misinformation and ignorance about the XTS are where most of the criticism comes from...

    The XTS is going to be a great car for those that are looking for a car that offers what it does (which is a lot, by the way)
    those that require RWD and/or require a V8 are going to have to deal with it, wait for the flagship or go elsewhere

    i just wish they would stop incessantly poo-pooing the XTS because it isn't RWD or have a V8 ... in reality only a small niche segment of the automotive buying public cares that much to require those two things in their cars

    The reason I DO poopoo it is because I DON'T want to go elsewhere (LS, Equus, Genesis) but am being pushed in that direction by typical GM (both General and Gov't Motors) bureaucratic BS.

    Exactly. If I said the 1M was a joke because it didn't have near the fuel economy or trunk space as a Cruze, I'd be an idiot. Apples and oranges.
