Re: Autoextremist Rant: Cadillac; CT6

Who exactly are Cadillac's buyers and what do they want......

It seems that Cadillac has traded one set of buyers for another but done that via heavy program costs all in the goal of raising the perception of Cadillac and with it average transaction prices and profits to cover that increased expenditure.

I can almost guarantee that GM was expecting ATS and CTS to sell in much higher numbers but the luke warm reception has probably given GM bosses food for thought in that over delivering on products in these segments has seen no appreciable change in perception...except of course the way GM bow views Cadillac...

Cadillac versions of Encore, Envision and Enclave at the very least should have been a no brain stepping stone to increasing exposure and revenue in Utility segments that are nothing short of a license to print money. with that financial foundation, it would be so much easier to fund and justify car based products for Cadillac instead of forcing
the wrong segments to sing for their supper...

pants on backwards GM.


And, all of that goes double for Lincoln,
MKC, MKX, Aviator and Navigator - all with fresh designs and the new faces and Lincoln would be away, regardless of the fortunes of MKZ and Continental.

One thing I hate about the rear seat of the CT6 is the fact that the power seat switches are on the arm rest. I think Lincoln did it right by putting it on the door because in a rare event you have 3 across the back you can't get to them at all. Most luxury brands put the switches on the door unless the center console cannot be moved.
