    Current 2.0T:
    SAE Net Horsepower @ RPM : 265 @ 5600
    SAE Net Torque @ RPM : 295 @ 3000-4500
    Curb weight: 3714 (from C&D)

    I'd rather have the lower torque peak, because I rarely drive at 4000 rpms. I'd have thought the longer wheelbase would have cost them more pounds.

    "This is a tweener. Bigger than the ATS but smaller than the CTS."

    The price should be tweener too, hopefully closer to the ATS. The Luxury probably has vinyl seats, so forget that trim. Why not cloth?

    If Cadillac does not not have it now, it does not mean they can't do it. This is for the germancarfanboys



    Now wait for the Escalade
    GM Shanghai always seems to know how to do luxury right. That is some fancy stuff right there.

    No, it's not. There are only a few places it's smaller than the last CTS, length and interior headroom. Basically everything else is the same or bigger. Dont believe the media onslaught about it being compact.

    Yep! I feel the exact same way. On this initial look the package is promising though.

    exactly, look at the detailing in the seats, we can only wish Cadillac got something similar. At least they got rid of the metal(?) chevrons from the seats for the CT5 so I'll take that as a consolation prize.

    CTS is a little more than 1-1/2" longer. CT5 is Wider, and has 1.6" longer wheelbase. It's not very "Tween" IMO.

    Well how do you know a Cadillac won't get a screen like that very soon, but with even better execution?

    The Buick sure looks plush, but the headrest wings and armrest may not be practical. Cadillac should offer something that emphasizes rear seat comfort, room, and style--without compromises for 3rd rows or aerodynamics.

    The wheelbase perhaps but the Length no. I'm sure CT5 would be wider as well. It's pretty simple. CT5 outside, is 5 Series in size, regardless of what Cadillac says it will compete against.

    1. GL8 is the flagship minivan for China, which is much more expensive.
    2. Buick is a concept.
