    Since the video didn't really let us see that much of the car, I tried to grab a few screenshots of it:

    Too bad they don't show the ugly butt. Would be an easy 11 page thread if so.

    Looking more and more like the Gen 2 SRX with a new face, at least to my eye.

    I think every aspect of Cadillac has been thoroughly discussed multiple times here, so I wouldn't doubt it.

    The problem that I have with the rear is that it doesn't retain the SRX's really sharp fins. I love those sharp fins; they're such a dramatic design cue.

    But the entire design is softer than the SRX, so I think it fits the design. I think it's actually the best part of the design. The front, sides, and proportions leave a lot to be desired IMHO, especially the front end. It just looks like it's too high off of the ground.

    So JDN didn't have a hand on this, as this was WAYYY deep into development by the time the new team came in, right?

    Correct. This car was a done deal long before Johan de Nysschen showed up. I'd think he had no input in this car, from design to interior.

    I'm not a big fan of any of the new Cadis' butts. I like the old CTS rear end, but the new ones are too bland for my taste. They don't appear finished or matching the rest of the design.

    However, I don't think this one is that bad, although I prefer the taller rear lights to more match the heritage. I wonder how it would look if they carried the design from the front to the back and had LEDs trail down past the bottom of the lights on the outside.
