Re: Future Product Guide: GM - AutomotiveNews

You guys can't help yourself. LOL!

Anyway, I like when Automotivenews does this every year about future product especially for Ford and Lincoln, their always typically in the last batch that they do. Their future product for Lincoln is really generic normally, they don't state info that hasn't been already annouced, I guess Ford keeps future Lincoln product tight lipped.

New 2014
A coupe will be launched in late summer 2014. The coupe will ride on the same, 109.3-inch wheelbase as the sedan. But both its front and rear tracks are about 1 inch wider, with shorter overhangs and fenders that wrap snuggly around the standard 18-inch wheels (the sedan comes standard with 17-inch wheels). There are two powertrain options, identical to those of the sedan: a base 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that produces 272 hp and 295 pounds-feet of torque; and an optional 3.6-liter V-6 rated at 321 hp and 275 pounds-feet of torque. Cadillac says the coupe won't offer the 2.5-liter base engine that comes standard on the sedan.

Freshen 2015
A freshening of the base sedan is slated for the second half of 2015 as a ’16 model.

New 2015
A V-series sedan will debut in the second quarter of 2015, likely with GM’s new 3.6-liter twin-turbo V-6 engine. (A V-series coupe also is planned, but further out.)

Re: Future Product Guide: GM - AutomotiveNews

coming from Cadillac President 'JdN' and WardsAuto,
wanted to put this in the main Product Guide thread...
Note:
heavily edited & [ annotated ]

Cadillac: Product, Other Fixes Coming; Patience Required - WardsAuto
Nov 25, 2014 David E. Zoia


...The to-do list is a long one ...("from six lines today to about a dozen in 2020")... an especially tall order for a brand de Nysschen says is “stuck in no-man’s land” at the moment...

...new flagship sedan, dubbed CT6, due next year.
That model will have all the refinement, technology and performance of a Mercedes S-Class, BMW 7-Series and Audi A8, he promises, but will be sized and priced against lower-level, standard-wheelbase versions of those cars.

“It has to come now,... It is an important part of this journey of elevating the brand and building on credible product. If we want to really entrench Cadillac as a formidable player in the premium segment, it’s necessary to have flagship cars that can take on the very best the German brands have to offer.
(“I want to spend some time taking the center of gravity of the brand upscale.")

“What has to be recognized, though, is that when you enter the market at price points the brand has never seen and where you don’t have a single customer – everything has to be conquest. Your volume aspirations better be pretty realistic...

...On the drawing boards are a model below the ATS [ mistake ] in size, a CUV positioned between the next-generation SRX and truck-based Escalade [ Aviator ] meant to challenge the Porsche Cayenne and BMW X5 [ wut? ], and two smaller CUVs that would compete against the BMW X3 and Audi Q3 [ MKC ] and even more diminutive models such as the BMW X1 [ mistake ]...

...“We have one crossover and one SUV,” he adds. “...look how many the Germans have. This [ ie Cadillac ] is completely wrong. They are obvious gaps in our product lineup. We are working flat-out to develop market entries for Cadillac.”...

...meantime, the big play will be a [ CT7/8/9 ] model to come above the CT6 in size and price that will take on high-end S-Class and 7-Series models at the very upper reaches of the volume luxury market.
“That will be the ultimate flagship for Cadillac,” de Nysschen says. “That will be the real halo car for the brand...

...Hybrid powertrains also will have to play a bigger role in order to keep pace with the Germans, who continue to knock out new plug-in models for an eager audience. A PHEV CT6 is planned, and Cadillac likely will be patient with its Chevrolet Volt-based ELR, despite sales reaching only 1,037 units so far this year.
“We will have more than one PHEV,” de Nysschen says. “It’s going to be a big part of our powertrain strategy. If you don’t do that, you don’t play in China. So this is part of the new paradigm.”


...GM is targeting Cadillac sales in China to grow from an estimated 70,000 units this year to 150,000 in 2016, then double again to 300,000 annually in 2020...
...Maintaining inventories at the industry norm of 70-80 days’ supply is “exactly wrong for the Cadillac business,” he adds. “If you start incentivizing cars because you have to move volume, then you’ve (guaranteed) failure.”...
...[ re: NYC ] “It’s not that the people that are handling the business today don’t know what they’re doing,” de Nysschen says. “The problem is we’ve never given them the opportunity to really study the premium segment on its own. With the separation in organization, we’ll be applying the dedicated resources to do precisely that. Nobody at Mercedes, BMW or Audi work part time.”...
...De Nysschen told Bloomberg last week Cadillac will begin reporting its own financial results in 2017... [ imho/ie
He needs Cadillac to BOTTOM OUT now so the separate reporting LOOKS all positive ]
