    New Caddy Emblem

    I have to say, I'm not such a big fan of the new emblem. Reminds me of a 1956 Chevy emblem. Anyone else agree?

    Well, I've always heard (at least in my youth) that Chevy was a poor man's Cadillac....

    I think the new emblem's proportions are just not right. I liked the wreath but I understand that their marketers found that people saw it as outdated. They should have dropped the wreath and left the emblem the same dimensions. The new one looks bloated and cartoonish.

    Oh, yes! I loved my '56 Chevy (Bel Air 2dr, power-pack V-8) and wish I still owned it!!! And the new Cadillac emblem does closely resemble its emblem. Personally, for Cadillac, I prefer the wreath and emblem contained therin, as on our XTS and SRX. The new design does not cut it, but the design guys always want to to make changes for whatever reasons.............

    Re: New Caddy Emblem

    I agree, I absolutely hate the new design. Looks really girlish or sissy-ish and I would definitely have to replace with the wreath one. I think of all the designs, the ones we have with the wreath are the best. This is another thing I bring up to the big bosses at the dealer's show room. I even tell them that I will not buy one with those nasty, sissy, shitty emblems on them.
    Just my two-cents,

    Walked through my local dealer today doing a little shopping. The new emblem looks ok on the Escalade (front grill) because of the proportions, but not so good on the ATS. I still prefer the wreath, and for us old guys, I still would like to have the merlettes on it.

    At first I was upset the new emblem wasn't on the XTS. Now, I'm so glad it's not. The old one looks like class, where the new one looks like it belongs on a transformer robot

    Although this has been brought up many times before, I'll give my updated opinion. I still absolutely hate it and think they should at least consider bringing the original shield back! If they really want to do it right bring back the ducks and wreath too Elegance down the toilet with this symbol...looks like a Chevy now:/ I may not buy another just because of the symbol....may seem shallow but the emblem means a lot to a vehicle!

    Is it just me,,,,,or does the new Cadillac emblem subtract from the eloquent look that is supposed to be Cadillac. I know its the sports car era but somethings are just timeless,,,,like the wreath.........[

    ^^ Thank you!!! They could also do a combination. On the V or V-Sport models, they can use the new emblem. Everywhere else, use the classic one!

    I truly don't like the emblem. Be a leader not a follower Cadillac. Mercedes-Benz still has the same emblem and its on the hood. Junk yards and dealers have raised the prices on used and new/ old emblems. I bought 5 of them for when I finally buy a new Cadillac. There's a reason why Cadillac sales are down 6%.

    I could understand the new emblem on a limited addition aka the 500 CTS coup or even on the CTS/ATS v's but for gods sake leave the classic emblem on the rest. Just my two cents
