    If he can't see Cadillac's issues, I worry about the brand's future.

    Boy....where to start, and I'm paraphrasing here:

    "Cadillac is moving to an all EV future....ICEs will be part of Cadillac's portfolio for the foreseeable future" - pick one Mr Reuss

    "XT4 is leading sales in the segment" - which segment??? it's 5th in compact CUV sales.

    "XT6 has a powertrain that can tow with ease" - no comment

    All this article is...is a fluff piece written by the fluffie

    Give me a platform and I can go on about how I'm great at everything. Anyway, wheres that SuperCruise on the XT6 your boss promised for product launch???

    It's all good, folks. Yousens guysens just don't properly appreciate magical thinking.

    Looking at the posts here, I'm picking up a tiny bit of skepticism. I must say, if Reuss wrote that stuff himself, he's one crazy mixed-up kid. Drivel, as Mentat Bashar so clearly puts it.

    Disappointing comments, for sure! Chaos reigns in the leadership at Cadillac. I guess he likes the recent TV ads for the XT6? Meanwhile, as I watch the U.S. Open Tennis Tournament with Roger Federer ( on 'Live' tonight), Mercedes has its emblem prominently displayed on the tennis court's net along with ads airing that showcase their cars, rather than focusing on some social justice statement or agenda.

    After the latest atrocious service experience I had at my Cadillac dealer last week, I would say the brand still has a long, long, long way to go.

    Maybe Reuss is trying to get Cadillac's brand equity traded on the CME Group Futures Exchange platform. So people can buy at a predetermined price today what they think Cadillac will be worth some time in the future.

    Exactly what I thought after I read the article (after several eye-rollings while reading it).

    Possible interpretations:
    1. Mark is spending his time working on awesome financial instruments instead of cars (which would explain a lot)
    2. Mark doesn't even know how to use to phrase "the Cadillac of ..." (which would explain a lot)
    3. Mark doesn't know how to use the English language (which would explain a lot)
    4. Mark thinks he has tapped into the multiverse and is working on one Cadillac to rule all possible futures (which suggests he's smoking things that'll put Elon Musk's joint to shame)
    5. All of the above

    Judging by the rest of the article, I'm inclined to go with #5.

    Ya... XT4 was decent but the XT6 is middling at best. CT4 and CT5 look middling also but we shall see.

    I can't believe Cadillac does not have an EV on the market or even announced yet.
