No that is not it. It is not far from there but that is not it. On anouther site I have seen the actual picture of the model Luts approved and it looks ok but I will have to wait to see it in real life. That picture has been out for over 2 years and is what the car would have looked more like before Luts had it redesigned before it's release. Sadly he took a lot of the edges out of the car that the CTS has. If he would had more time he would have changed the CTS because he hated it.

The future STS does indeed have an XLR front end. The prototype has been seen at the Nurburgring (photos can be found in the 2005 STS sticky thread).

wrong again! I've been looking at the car for the last year and a half. It does not have an XLR front end. It looks like a grown-up CTS. Cadillac has put a shot of the car on their website now.

That's what I'm afraid of. I don't dislike any particular model - I just don't want them all so similar that you can't tell one from another unless you 'know' Cadillac..
I agree Sal. I also noticed, as I'm sure many of you have, that when the SRX first came out and they showed the dash, I thought AW C'mon, it looks like the CTS's dash! They seem to be leaning towards that edgy CTS styling for the entire line! Please tell me it is a bad dream. :crying:

Look at Lincoln, does the TC look anything like the LS? The Continental in it's last years looked nothing like the others, and I liked that, distinctive is the key word. Mind you, I guess the Aviator looks like a baby Navagator.

I just don't want all Caddies to look the same, and to me they are starting to.

Have you seen the new Lincoln designs? It looks like they took a page out of the Art&Science handbook with the creased look. They also look more similar to each other than the Caddys do.

Caddy isn't the only company heading towards brand loyalty(the whole reason they dropped the names was so people would say they drove a Cadillac instead of an Eldorado, Seville, etc.) themed styling.

No, I'm afraid I haven't seen the new Lincolns. Is there a website I could? I haven't followed any future styling of Ford products lately, but I do like the current Town Cars. I didn't know they were touching them.

I hope eventually Cadillac will not do what Acura did, namely drop "names" like Vigor, Legend, etc. and go numbers to "seem" more sophisticated like Benz.

i think those cars are far enough apart in styling, but the deville styling should be different then a big seville. look at bmw! all there cars carry the same exact theme. same with mercedes, dodge, etc etc etc
