    New Cadillac XTS Commercial

    I really like this, it caught my attention on FB and I couldn't help but smile. Well done, GM.

    Looks like the cast for the ATS commercial wandered into the wrong studio. Seriously, what successful 30-something is going to want an XTS?

    Lol I was thinking the same things as I was watching it. "These are people who would never own an XTS".

    They actually did show up to do an ATS commercial, but all the ATSs they were going to use for ads were halfway around the world looking for those challenging roads, so they settled for doing an XTS spot.


    Or so I imagine.

    Perhaps we should contact Toyota , and inform them that successful 30 year old people do not purchase their vehicles?



    P.S.

    As someone not utterly divergent from a successful 30 year old, I find the XTS quite appealing notwithstanding the lack of a V8 engine which is simply not important to many successful 30 year olds.

    Indeed. The ad feels forced, like a cast of teenagers in an ad for retirement communities.

    When I first saw that commercial a couple of days ago I actually wouldn't mind driving it or being caught in it. By the way there are 30 somethings that currently drive DTS's and would drive XTS's

    It doesn't really feel unique to the car though, does it? Seems you could stick any car in there. What's with GM and "night out" -themed ads? Cruze and Malibu Eco each had one too.

    That just doesn't ring legit; those people wouldn't be caught dead in a Cadillac.

    Lol'd.

    I liked the song. It was pretty fun, the commercial.

    2013 Cadillac ATS - Black

    Re: New Cadillac XTS Commercial

    Well, this is tv, which is prone to stretching the truth.

    Look at all the tv shows - CEO's are mostly protrayed as 30 year olds, all detectives are 25 (and if female they are hot), etc..\

    Caddy wants to attract a younger crowd, so they need to put them in ads. The older folks will buy it no matter what the age is of the people in the ads.

    But with that said, it does look unrealistic. Yes, a few younger people may buy the XTS, but I'd put money on it that the bulk of the sales will be to people 55 and older.

    If I had the money, the XTS would be a strong contender in my car search...I am a college student. (Business student no less).

    I thought it was supposed to be a courtesy car from the fancy hotel.

    I'd like to see them try cramming the redneck and his hounddog in the back of an ATS.

    By the way there are 30 somethings that currently drive DTS's and would drive XTS's
    I bought a Fleetwood Brougham when I was 20. Granted, it was 7 years old and $1,500. I was under 50 when I bought my 3 y.o. Deville. Now I'm spoiled for a less luxurious car.
