    Plastic or glass how the heck is this "absolutely unacceptable" in this class of car? Really? Should it be made of titanium? Carbon fibre? Someone would crucify a car because of what material is in place for a non-useable area in the C-pillar? Picking nits much?

    The car keeps growing on me as well. Need to see a front and rear 3/4 to see how well it works overall.

    Occam's razor, guys. Don't overthink it.

    It isn't black glass. Look at the door shutline, and look at the passenger side interior view:



    It's an extra trim piece that's attached to the body. It isn't glass, and it certainly isn't sheetmetal, as it physically attached, not painted or etched in.

I've talked to someone about this on another site that confirmed it Navigator isn't even being bench-marked at Cadillac too low for them.

    I'm guessing the effect is going to be something like that of the current Honda Odyssey's horrible A-pillar.
