    Black Chrome Grill=good
    Squared off lights on either side=bad
    Round out the front end, hood lines should meet the grill like the Elmiraj

    I find it sad that some people wish for GM to fail and can't comprehend any good news. A plausible explanation for this kind of behavior is that you have a miserable life so you wish the same to others. Cory Pham, Autoblog Poster

    GM must return its divisions to being interdependent entities within the corporation. Decentralize and free the different divisions talents to foster brand differentiation and customer loyalty.

    Disappointing that Cadillac couldn't find an American designer for a Cadillac. Maybe that's the problem with the outcome? They had to hire a Brit?

    You can't keep hiring domestically if you're trying to become a Global brand.

    Is that the objective? To no longer be a US brand? I'd argue a well led US brand would find global acceptance. I don't know.. it seems kind of like waving the white flag to me, a tacit admission the US lacks the kind of talent necessary to design and build a Cadillac of all things. Really? Perhaps that sounds provincial to you. Maybe it is. I think it's curious.

    Escala = Snail, put the design back in the oven, needs more bake time.

    2013 Cadillac ATS - Black

    Re: Cadillac "Escala" Concept Car Reveal (Video)

    I do like that they are adding horizontal elements to the front and back. I've said it a couple of times, the vertical tail and headlamps lends to the cars looking tall, especially on the smaller ATS. Wider tends to look better than tall....

    Don't play dumb. You know exactly what it means. No luxury brand will survive by being a regional brand. The goal is for American style with global appeal. That doesn't mean you can't hire outsiders.
