    Why shouldn't Cadillac compete in the all new (again) wagon segment?

    excellent chop! you could tell me that's a picture of a real car! can't say i see the need for a cadillac wagon... but then again i don't see the need for a BMW or mercedes one either!

    that looks great, very good competition for the magnum...styling is rather in your face and the bulging rear wheel wells look great with the wagon addition....very sporty looking...I think a limited market is available for a vehicle like this...

    Well, the CTS wagon is quite cool, so why not an STS wagon?

    nice chop.. agree with everyone, thats what the SRX is for. BTW, STS(seville touring sedan) contradicts itself , STW (seville touring wagon)would be more appropriate.

    i actually like it alot, but cadi would think it cuts into the SRX's market. and is anyone else thinking this 3 letter naming is getting old?

    but the three letter naming is the NEW cadillac! Yeah, I agree that the three letter naming is pretty stupid, but the cars seem to rock!

    Yes,
    Agreed, it would probably cut into SRX sales land and the name STS-L doesn't make sense. The name STW just doesn't sound right either, "cadillac's tasty STeW." Anyway, I was actually just trying to see what larger air inlets and a bigger grill would look like on the STS. I decided to throw the wagon bit on for fun.

    reminds me of a quote i read years back about a prototype mercedes 2-door wagon (i believe it's called a 'golfing break&#39... "it appears to be the answer to a question no one has asked yet"!

    Make the back a little bit longer like an E-Class wagon. Otherwise, awesome job! It kinda reminds me of the Pacifica.

    That grille chopped in looks great. It adds elegance and sophistication. That really looks good as a lower slung wagon.
