    It is pretty Craptastic IMO, especially that entire C pillar area.

    The interior is kind of ho hum an unimaginative, but I will say it looks premium. Now if Cadillac could just give the CT6 interior something with this level of quality, but with Escala themes, CT6 would truly be World class in all areas.

    Re: 2020 BMW 8-Series Gran Coupe Revealed

    Not to obsess about a detail, but i like this infotainment screen semi-enclosed in dash and slightly tilted. Similar to CT4/CT5 approach, which is better than full-on vertical ipad-on-dash like some competitors IMO.
    Current ride: 2015 Chevy Sonic 1.8L 5sp manual sedan
    Previous ride: 1998 Subaru Legacy Wagon AWD 2.2L 5sp manual
    Next ride: Maybe a 2020 2.0T CT4, weekend car, keep the Sonic as DD

Let Buick take over as Flagship luxury for the company.. and Camaro take lead as Chevy Performance brand
    Haha! We agree on something! I feel you though. I don't get how they get coupe, sedan and 4-Door coupes of their car models (this goes for Audi, Mercedes-Benz AND BMW) AND they have regular and 4-door coupe models of their SUV models too.

    They all have high end sports cars too.

    ^ Half of all those models don't sell in any kind of meaningful numbers and probably don't pay for their keep. Look at Audi; a 12-some model brand with only 6 doing all the lifting.

    Re: 2020 BMW 8-Series Gran Coupe Revealed

    I was able to take the M850i out for a 20 minute spin a few months ago, spectacular vehicle, though a lot smaller inside than I expected.

    I'd love to see Cadillac field vehicles in this lofty segment.

    Agree w/ Cmicasa...in order for Cadillac to do ish like this, they'll need to spin off as a fully independent subsidiary of GM. Buick should slot in to tackle volume near lux/lux segment and Cadillac should independently go after BMW/MB with full autonomy (not self driving autos but as a self directed company)

    I'm assuming VW handles Bentley/Lamborghini this same way, mostly hands off and w/ their own independent budget. I'm assuming that is the case because no corporate bureaucracy would allow stuff like the Veneno and Sesto elemento to exist.

    it sounded like they were going that route 5 or so years back. But it's obvious they've gone full circle where Cadillac is just another division. It is what it is.

    Never a serious consideration due to being a logistical impossibility, IMO. Cadillac hasn't had any inter-corporational autonomy since the 1970s.
