    Seriously, WTF does “Let Cadillac be Cadillac” mean? White wall tires? Landau tops? Wire wheels? It’s so meaningless. Just make all Cadillac’s look un-mistakingly like a Cadillac, and make sure Cadillac has the newest tech and features before anyone in the industry.

    Make sure the non V Series Cadillac that are focusing on the Luxury side of the equation, have dollar for dollar the most opulent high quality and luxurious interiors in the industry. It’s not that difficult. The Escala, Ciel, Elmiraj interiors would be a good place to draw some inspiration.

    Hopefully the New Escalade will be the start of this transformation, at least where the interior is concerned. I’ve seen it in pictures, and it looked classy understated, but with a gorgeous Dash and console. They need to show it ( or leak it) soon, before the competition comes out with something similar and steals Cadillac’s thunder.

    Btw I’m guessing we’ll see the usual Cadillac ‘Staged spy shots’ of Escalade’s interior within a week or two. They were discussing the Escalade’s large screen/display’s over at that other site and whether it would get a giant screen. They mentioned the Tesla Model S, but it is nothing like that. Escalade has Way better presentation and integration into the overall design and while big it is very elegant and is not at all clunky looking like the Tesla.

    The Escalade has flair and Panache in the dash console design.

    Exactly.

    Nothing personal, mind you, but she's talking but nothing's coming out. I mean, she's just like 99.99% of marketing people ... they move their mouths, and English words come out, but all airy and nebulous and wispy nothingness. And they get paid big buck$? I don't get it.

    Wow! Where's Melody Lee?

    I just don't get the impression she has the heritage of Cadillac running through her veins. It seems she could very easily transition to marketing mouth wash.

    So after Mary contradicting early statements about Supercruise not being available on XT6 for the first model year/launch, this interview seems to indicate that XT6 won’t in fact get SC for the first year. I guess ‘mixed messaging’ is what they mean by “Let Cadillac be Cadillac”. On that front I give them an A+.

    Yeah I saw the Autoline video Thursday, was left less than impressed. The panelists were subjected to a corporate yawn fest.

    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.
