In reference to Caddy's potential move WAY upscale, I would love to see Cadillac execute the sweet Sixteen in the near future (and even the Cien!), but I think it would be more important and more relevant to fill out its existing line first. How 'bout a CTS coupe (CTC?) and convertible with entry level 6-cylinder engines up to a high-performance V-8 (CTC-V?). Along the same lines, how 'bout a 4-place coupe to slot on the side of the upcoming STS, which should also get a V-series stablemate. And attention needs to be placed on the next generation Deville (DTS), which will be going up against some very stiff competition: the 7-series, the A8, the S-Class, and to a lesser degree, the LS430 and XJ8. It might be nice to see a coupe version of the DTS, too, but a premium sedan is a must (and it must be done correctly!). Also, the introduced-in-1999 Escalade will be do for some extensive updating soon, IMO. Nissan's Infiniti is coming on strong, and the new Range Rover is a real gem.

Cadillac has done a phenomal job since 1999! But, it has finite resources, and as much as the Sixteen is so very much better in design than the Maybachs and the Phantom, it seems a bit premature. Patience, Cadillac! One step at a time.
