Cadillac 'LTS' is a go

  1. Cadillac has confirmed a new flagship model:

    ""The objective for this upcoming model is to lift the Cadillac range by entering the elite class of top-level luxury cars," said Cadillac President Johan de Nysschen. "Currently in development, this new rear wheel drive-oriented sedan uses completely new, custom-designed materials on a unique vehicle architecture.

    "In addition to new technology in the car itself, we are instituting innovative manufacturing techniques to assemble it with the precision deserving of a luxury make."

    Positioned above today's CTS and XTS product lines, the new top-of-the-line Cadillac adds to rather than replaces any model in the portfolio. The model name will be announced soon. It will make its public debut in the first half of next year."

    So a 7-series fighter... the big question, will there be a V version?
     
  2. Can we get a smallblock-based V12?
     
  3. It better look like that ElMiraj or whatever. Make a sedan/coupe since Merc and BMW are already in that game.
     
  4. *sixteen

    I hope its looks just like the Sixteen
     
  5. This brings up a valid point.

    Cadillac's current "large" sedan is the XTS, which weighs in at 5,300+ lbs with power ranging from 304 to 410 depending on trim.

    The current 7-series weighs in at 4,300 to 5,000 lbs and power ranging from 315 to 536 depending on trim.

    Would the new LT1 with 455 BHP be enough to move a Cadillac that will probably weigh close to 6,000 lbs by production time? And the supercharged LT4 just seems to brash to put in a non-V series Cadillac.
