    2007 Cadillac Glacier REVISED

    at first i wanted this to compete against the new mercedese R class, but then i realized the wheelbase was too short, so now, its just a nice wagon from caddy.

    the exterior is a bit exagerrated with the front windsheild (cant imagine what thatll do to visibility) but production could make that normal.

    btw Rex, id like to enter this and the saturn hybrid, the fiero seems to be a flop.

    Looks like someone stepped on the roof.

    I think it makes a nice Caddy.

    I don't think it differentiates itself enough from the SRX.
    Never mind.

    Fix the roofline and the rear bumper (smashed in, and to curvy..) and I think you got a winner!

    Not sure how that concave windshield design would effect drag, but other than that, nice design.

    Doesn't look very Cadillac. Maybe a rebranding is in order.

    Also, a minor quibble, but what's with the upside down steering wheels? I can see a hint of gauges behind there, so it would make them hard to see. Also, it looks wierd.

    i hate drawing circles, wether for wheels or for steering wheels etc..., because i can never get them right, and they all end up looking weird.

    im assuming based on most of the comments here, that this car doesnt look very cadillac, and that the concave thing doesnt really work good for this design, so i guess its back to the drawing board for me!

    i revised it, it looks a bit more bland, but i guess thats how the production version will be. It can also take on the R class now.

    i think, instead of a new cabin design, you should use the STS's cabin and just extend it into a wagon. i think it would help assosiciate this with cadillac as well as improve the image.

    The first pic is better...But I don't see that much Cadillac in this design...especially with this non-alphanumeric name.
    I'll make a new sig. Later.

    It's not that it's strange and not very round, I didn't notice that. It's the spoke that goes up the middle. It blocks the gauges. If the wheel was flipped over - spokes on the bottom, left and right, as opposed to top left and right - it'd actually work.
