    XT5 Without Cadillac Name

    Just took delivery of my new 2017 Cadillac XT5 in silver. Sorry, no pictures - you all know what it looks like, anyways. Leftover 17, dealer demo, with discounts, rebates, etc. I saved $12k off of sticker. Anyway, I noticed that that Cadillac name does not appear anywhere inside or outside of the car. Cool, and gutsy on Cadillac's part. Is this the norm now for all their models?

    2013 Cadillac ATS - Black

    Re: XT5 Without Cadillac Name

    I think they've been doing this for awhile.

    I have a 2013 ATS, I'm never thought about it, but I don't think "Cadillac" appears anywhere on the car.

    We have a 2015 ATS sedan and "Cadillac" is written in script on the silver piece just below the rear license plate but it doesn't appear anywhere else on the car.

    Congrats on the new car and the good deal!!

    As for not putting the name anywhere, that's normal for the segment. Mercedes, BMW, Audi all do the same.

    That's a shame, because I love the script and think it's unique to Cadillac. I can think of a lot of ways they can and should incorporate it across their lineup.

    To me that is a heritage thing (of which I happen to like) and links them to their past before they went a floundering.

    Is yours a sedan?
    For some reason I think they only do it on those but not on the coupe. Go figure ...

    I love the Cadillac script if done tastefully. It's almost as if GM is embarrassed to stamp "Cadillac" on anything though with the way the brand has been mis-managed over the last 30+ years I can almost understand.

    The script is on the chrome trim on the trunk lid of the coupe, also.

    I can't believe this.

    The Cadillac script is embossed on the bright metal panel above the licence plate on the ATS Sedan, CTS, and until this year the XTS. The recently deceased SRX did too.

    My CTS has it on both the trunk and along the door sills. The door sills illuminate too.
