Cadillac Flagship Sedan Approved
By: Nick Saporito

GMInsideNews

Several months ago media outlets began reporting that General Motors was in the process of developing a rear-wheel drive Cadillac flagship sedan off of a new platform. At the time, GMI reported that the program did exist, but had not been given the full green light. That, however, has since changed.

According to sources familiar with GM product planning, the company fully approved the development of the Cadillac flagship sedan within the last couple of weeks. The program was supposedly working off of a goodwill commitment from the GM board of directors until the final approval recently became a reality.

The ultra Cadillac sedan will indeed ride on a new rear wheel drive program, which is reportedly referred to as Omega internally. Expect the new platform to feature extensive use of lightweight materials, including aluminum. Contrary to prior reports, GM North America has the lead development role on the new Cadillac, not GM China.

Omega is expected to be a spin-off of the Zeta architecture.

By 2017, i hope, Lincoln could make a RWD luxury sedan flagship, too. Ford need a RWD platform for the Mustang and Australian`s sedans... so... i hope this Lincoln will be at dealers by that year. At dealers in USA and China. Lincoln, like Buick, has its future survive in China.
