Haters who don't like the XTS should just go overpay for a BMW-MB.
Yep, all 89 of you will be truly disappointed...Originally Posted by texmaster
Doesn't change the fact there's only 89 of you...
Don't you guys let each other get under your skin.
1. Cadillac could have given us better than the XTS
2. I know why they didn't (bankruptcy)
3. The XTS will likely sell better than the DTS - which was based on old technology (it only makes sense)
I do believe there are a shit ton of people who will be disappointed with the XTS. At the same time, there will be a shit ton of new people saying, "Wow! It's the new Cadillac flagship!". So Cadillac will lose most of the customers who like ONE type of car and gain just as many who like another. They're basically just changing the type of customer they customarily entertain with this vehicle...
So you're both right. Deal with it.

I have a hard time considering anything coming from someone who calls a CTS-V a "tonka toy".
Oh, I'm sorry, you mean the Cadillac saving, world acclaimed CarandDriver 10Best winning CTS and CTS-V? Yeah, I like them, as does the rest of the public. I own one. Not that underwhelming, piece of under-engineered thing called the DTS.Originally Posted by texmaster
You're on an island of ignorance, bub...
I'm constantly amazed at people moaning that Cadillac won't continue to build the kind of cars that made them irrelevant.
While big barges with floaty rides using finicky and fuel thirsty V8s relegated Cadillac to 20 years as a joke behind MB and BMW, CTS, Escalade and SRX have begun making Cadillac a player in the luxury market again- yet the phrase "It's like a CTS" is used as a pejorative? Makes no sense.
XTS represents another big step forward for Cadillac, and it's not the bankruptcy driven compromise mobile some of you make it out to be. Show me another car with this level of fit/finish and interior materials that also has 19" wheels, rear park assist, magnetic ride, Brembos, 300hp, auto leveling suspension, remote start, Xenon headlights, homelink and an SD card reader- all for somewhere in the mid $40s.
They will sell a ton of them as long as Cadillac doesn't make the same mistake they did with the STS and never advertise it. I worry that the ATS will steal a lot of its thunder because of the proximity of the launches, but hopefully they're smart enough not to let that happen.
