Looks like most of the grandpas around here are driving small economy cars, or midsized ones with lots of miles on them.What will every grandpa drive now?
Cadillac is alive and well, yes... But Cadillac needs at least a V12The CTS is a very good Cadillac, so I don't think Cadillac has died. I know that other GM products share the 3.6L V6 but within a few years I expect the V6 will be rare at GM outside Cadillac. GMI recently reported the next LaCrosse will be 4 cylinder only.
hi ElvisupermanPick your choice... MK_ ... you fill in the blank. Lincoln barely competes with Buick right now, whether you wanna believe it or not...
The original concept was that Cadillac had "died" because they no longer had an engine of their own. From 1903 through 2011MY, Cadillac had an engine in their lineup that was designed exclusively for the brand. After the demise of the Northstar engine in the spring, Cadillac, in my mind, died.Right now, Cadillac is preparing the next phase of its recovery with the upcoming ATS and XTS. The brand is also working on the ELR and hopefully will start working on a RWD flagship sedan soon too. It is far from being "dead".
I'm optimistic about the attention and resources that FoMoCo has committed to transforming Lincoln. FoMoCo will have to attempt to do this with its corporate FWD platforms, but that doesn't mean that it can't carve out its own niche in the premium end of the market.
The 2 brands are on their own separate recovery paths and we need to stop comparing them. I want them both to be successful.
