    Here's your Eldorado:

    This is the que for everyone driving Cadillacs from a decade ago to complain. If you are honest though, the old Eldo has nothing on the new CTS coupe. The CTC is more powerful, better handling, comes equipped with a better interior made from better materials, and is actually competitive with other cars in it's class.

    ...I'm sorry, but they're not bringing the name back.

    Re: Bring back the Eldorado!!!

    But there is a problem...Cadillac is in now "Art&Science" Era and all cars are designing with only ruler. But Eldorado was aesthetic car, 1950 to 2002, it wasnt changed. It is like a wine, I dont know you use this term for cars or not, but Eldorado was like Dream car. But modern Cadillac's are looking very rough and though. Evem 2002 Eldorado is looks much better than Mk1 CTS I think. MK2 is much better looking but Eldorado is better. In fact, Eldorado was the way more luxury and bigger than modern CTS. In 2002, It has got front massaging seats on upper equipment package. In 2008, yes Cadillac CTS has got 30 Gb Hdd, Head up display, but its because of year 2008... ( It is about technology, but using massaging seats on a car cost higher than those ) .

    Xlr and XLR-V series are good. But XLR is designed to be a roadster and its smaller than Eldorado, and very very small. It is like European car with its 4.4 meter length. I think the Eldorado's only problem was its FWD platform, not another thing. ( Except Northstar engine, I heard it has not got modify capabilities , 300 hp is not so much for that kind of a car I think , and also It has got low torque for 32 valve 4.6 . Bmw's 286 Hp 4.4 liter engine can produce 440 nm.

    I had 1993, 96, 98 and 2001 Eldorado ETC's and it has been my favorite car. I now have a 2007 CTS with FE3.

    If the Eldorado ETC was still here, it would be a 2 door version of the STS.

    If Cadillac was going to bring back the Eldorado name, it would most likely be the CTS COUPE.

But we can dream, can't we.
    That looks most likely in the direction of a might-Eldorado!
    Never will a CTS or STS coupe be an Eldorado, as the Eldorado, when it will be re-vived, should be the flagship of Cadillac. Therefore it will be a 2-Door DTS-based platform with V8 and V10 engine. Like the size of the BMW 6-series or Mercedes SLK.

    BTW, if Cadillac is following, then who is leading exactly? It is you yourself who compare to other brands to find similarities, although all Cadillac models are distinctively different from the competition in many positive ways. At least in my eyes...

    I guess I start 2009 with a fresh vision

    The fact of the matter is GM screwed up getting rid of the Eldorado and building there high priced SUV's. BRING BACK THE ELDORADO it is an American icn for what a 2 door coupe should look like and drive.
