    A.J.'s Cadillac DTS, now with the interior!

    Here's my crack at the whole RWD DTS schtick.

    It's based off of the nonexistent Sigma II platform with a long wheelbase. Mercedes-Benz and Lexus have comfort, Audi and BMW have performance...the Cadillac D-Line effectively splits the difference.

    Standard engine in the DTS is a new twin-turbocharged (two smalls as opposed to one big) 3.6L DIV6, good for roughly 375-415hp. An available DTS-H gains a hybrid-electric powertrain, with the 3.6L DIV6 as the gasoline motor, good for an equivalent of 290-310hp.

    Here we go...

    Oh, by the way, the side vent is fully functional.

    I would call that the ATS, it is too small for a DTS!

    For size comparison, here's my Imagine Sedan Lite, a FWD sedan placed in between the small and midsize segments:

    Looks great, but it needs to be stretched to be a DTS.

    I like the idea, it could be a new, understated, elegant direction for Cadillac. Here's my modification of Monaro's modification of A.J.'s original design.

    It's a rare and exceptional sketch idea that inspires me to color it in...

    Re: A.J.'s Cadillac DTS.

    Its ok, but the vent in the fender is unnecessary & looks bad.
    The crease lines are also bad.
    Crease lines/side sculpting should be taken from the Converj concept.

    I like how MonaroSS helped enhance the drawing. By stretching & coloring it.

    That is all.


    !!!!
    IF It's A Chevrolet & RWD, Don't ride in it!!!

    ALL Chevy's NEED to be FWD/F-AWD!!!

    If it's a Toyota/Lexus/Scion, Don't ride in/drive it!!

    Well there's nothing I do pleases you.

    I could have put in a new thread and just credited A.J, but I believe A.J deserves to get the traffic through his thread as it's his design.....
