    I am a fan of the horizontal light treatments. I am glad Escala themes are going to start making it into production models. I think from this point we can now start judging the effects and direction that JDN is taking Cadillac.

    That's very interesting. Looks like a lot of depth has been added which was sorely needed.

    I really don't like how Cadillac will apparently be doing it's headlights. Vertical or horizontal - pick one.

    Personally, I feel the "stacked" or vertical headlights is a traditional Cadillac styling cue. I'd go with that.
    Pony Car: an affordable, compact, highly styled car with a sporty or performance-oriented image and an available V8.

    I love the treatment on the XT5 and CT6. Doesn't look as nice on the CTS.

    My problem with the XTS is the front drive proportions. They did a good job with the styling over than that.

    Agreed. What we're seeing on this new XTS is exactly how I wanted Cadillac to integrate the horizontal elements.

    This isn't.

    V-series grille insert on the Vsport?

    Me too. It's a cash cow for Caddy.

    Very comfortable car - had one as a rental. Would not buy but I liked it a lot.

    So much better looking in Vsport trim.

    It's hard to tell, but I don't see the mesh that's characteristic of the V-series grille. Maybe the horizontal grille slats are just blacked out on the Vsport.

    The problem with the XTS appearance was never the nose or tail. I love the new taillights but find the 3D truck lid strange, and the front end was better before IMO. As always though you can never really tell until you see them in person.

    It'll continue to print money, that much we can be sure.
