    Re: Bring back the Eldorado!!!

    Have you guys seen pics of the 2009 CTS-V ? It is a two door coupe and I am thinking what B.S. that they didn't give that the eldo name if they are going with a two door !

    Re: Bring back the Eldorado!!!

    How is a Coupe CTC an Eldorado? Latest Eldorado was a 2 door version of an STS. In the 50's and 60's it was practically an ultralux version of a coupe deville and in '67-70 it was a Fleetwood class.
    The closest they could get to an Eldorado on current platforms would be on a 2 door version of an STS. And I think most of the fans would like to see a unique comeback of the Eldorado though.

    Re: Bring back the Eldorado!!!

    oh but they cant give it a real name its got to have a 3 letter designation so maybe it would be back to ETC, or perhaps to make it sound right the LDO or something (joking) i dont think they will bring it back until theres a big anniversary or something. not that they shouldn't of course. if they were to bring it back it would have to be really done right, or else id rather spend money restoring an older one. but perhaps picky guys like us aren't the market there after.

    Re: Bring back the Eldorado!!!

    All I really want is a Cadillac vehicle (particularly a sedan) that has high-class like they used to (1996 STS) that has performance and luxury. It's called "high end."

    If Cadillac would bring back the Eldorado we would buy another one in a heartbeat ( We had a 2000 ). Caddy execs..........are you listening? Your consumers are telling you what we want, listen to us.

    I think the project has merely been posponed, since they are merging the DTS and STS first.

    Re: Bring back the Eldorado!!!

    The coupe market is beginning to come back around.
    It's time to bring the Eldorado (ETC) back to the market.
    Don't miss the boat on this one guys.

    Cadillac needs to Lead the market, not react too late and miss the boat.

    The XLR may have been intended to replace the Eldorado, yet the pricing and small size doomed it's potential to fill the niche where a well executed, reasonably priced American sized luxury coupe could have been a hit.

    Rear wheel drive is a must.

    Thanks,
    Jim

    Re: Bring back the Eldorado!!!

    This is a concept published in a magazne some months ago. I recently found it on the internet, it is a drawing of a concept car that was seen in clay at the GM Design Studios. Apparently it is an uplevel Cadillac Coupe E8 or E12. The similarity to the Bentley design is unmistakable, as was the 100K price mentioned in the article. Willl it ever be built? But we can dream, can't we.

    Re: Bring back the Eldorado!!!

    Would probably sell but not with that kind of price tag IMO. Would LOVE to see some "heritage" models come back to Cadillac's lineup. But unfortunately, a $100,000 Cadillac is like a $30,000+ Hyundai, most people just won't go for it. Perceptions about a marque impose price limits, and I don't think anybody outside GM's corporate offices sees Cadillac competing in the $100,000 market right now (or anytime soon!).

    We need to consider the dollar situation, today the USA dollar is .15 of what it was in 1960. In 1960 dollars an item that would have cost $13500 now costs approximately (didn't use my work spreadsheet, just ball parking) $105,000. This is what inflation does, why do you think that $35,000 house is now selling for $550, 000, is it because one spent $10,000 on the bathroom, or 25,000 on the Kitchen?

    By the way in case you didn't realize it Cadillac has been selling the 2 seat XLR V, it sells for about $106,000, and it doesn't have a backseat!

    Absolutely 100% correct! There was a time when Cadillac was the "leader" in the luxury car category.Cadillac is now a "follower".
    I know many current/past Caddy luxury car owners who don`t like the "alphabet soup" names for current Caddy cars.
    Many i know really want the Eldorado & Fleetwood back also.
