"The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere the ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst are full of passionate intensity. "
W.B. Yeats- 1919
This thing is no where near the disappointment the XT6 is. In fact, it TOO has had its new Honda Accord C Pillar grow on me. The XT6 is basically first GEN Denali converted to Escalade (in my opinion) from GMC Acadia all over again. Just in 2020 style instead of old terms of badge engineering vs new badge engineering. "Platform sharing" XT6 is NOT. Sorry. This isn't even an XT6 thread but I had to speak my piece since the Caddy fan club is shooting shots at CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM and calling it hate for the brand. We just want them to be THE STANDARD OF THE WORLD we know they can be. My favorite brand could out-handle a Bimmer, Bugatti, Lambo or any car in the world but the substance of the brand: advertisement and confusing styling that doesn't do concepts like they do (or meat of the meal as we chefs call it in culinary world) isn't there.
Sorry. Gay dude rambling. I probably didn't make any sense just now but I would like you to see that most here don't hate Caddy. At all. I find it hard to believe one has that much adult time in the day to post here just to "hate" GM. Maybe I have too much time spent traveling with my boyfriend and his friends and working three jobs but I don't get why you all ride down hard on someone that thinks so much hate is toward Caddy and intentional at that. Let me go now. Bye. I have parent/teacher conferences to attend for the much needed North Chicago school district... Some of you are ridiculous.
Its been 24 hours and I'm starting to not dislike the C Pillar... actually its growing on me (and I don't mean like a tumor)! In another 24-48 hours I may love it...
If they can just do the faux window in black glass it'll look great. Likely it'll be gloss black paint, but on the new Enclave the rear of the rear door has a one piece gloss black plastic molding that butts up to the window behind it and it is pretty nice. Black glass is the way to go on CT5 though, as it's reflective qualities would match the fixed window in the rear door, and the rest of the windows.
I think by now, nobody cares of what Cadillac can present.
It is as rare as Maserati on a street.
From it's looks it could be a liftback(fastback) but it is sedan.

It's a handsome vehicle but , yeah, that Pillar does cheapen the look. It's like they felt they needed to make it look different and that's what they came up with. Just not needed, IMO. Chevy pills that crap with the front fender flares that always look out of place (see Cruze and Silverado and Impala).
Someone should photoshop it without it and see what it looks like.
