    Strong product
    Strong marketing

    = Profit

    They probably have plans that were put into motion under JDN going out to 2025 and beyond, short term I expect things to stay the same. They probably don't want to delay products coming out between now and 2020 to be delayed so those will likely stay on track. I can see them tweaking products in development for after that point.

Chevrolet/Cadillac would be enough considering the market share GM now commands.
    See to me this kind of confusion is exactly why the Caddy Naming convention is so crappy. You can't distinguish the difference between what was an XT5 to an XT4 and really know what it was. That and almost every design looks the same. At least I know what an Escalade is.

    The next Cadillac introduction will be at Detroit. Auto news is saying XT6.

    http://www.autonews.com/article/2018...c-carlisle-xt4
    The next product, Carlisle said, will debut at the Detroit auto show. It is expected to be a three-row crossover to slot between the popular XT5 midsize crossover and the flagship Escalade SUV.

    What are you talking about? Of course you can tell by the names what they are. And it's called design language, of course they will have similar cues. For gods sake just look at audi and VW.

    Just because you're paranoid, doesn't mean they're not after you.
