But from those shots.. I'm sure to some.. the interior looks like absolute ****.
:lmao: NOAre we sure these pics aren't from a Caddy dealer lot?
I mean, people are just walking by and not even noticing it!!
The SRX/XT5 platform is just as competent as the FWD Benz platform and most likely better... and U know it.Well... You're not wrong.
Ultimately, the problem is Cadillac doesn't have a platform that a "proper" and "competitive" CUV can rid on. And if it does, they're not using it effectively.
So, Cadillac has to create a positive spin on it. So, they do the only thing they can do -- fly one in by helicopter into Manhattan.
No respect needed... U don't depend on me for food, shelter, or clothes on your back ...With all due respect, I think that's doubtful. Obviously we know little about the new platform, but it's probably similar in concept to the current one, as most new platforms are to their predecessor. The Grand Cherokee-M-GL platform is plenty capable off-road while being refined on road, and as a basis allows for very powerful engine options. The SRX's mainstream roots (hybrid platform or otherwise) means you can't put a 550 horsepower V-8 in it, and with items like the chin it's no rival off-road either, even ignoring MB's available off-road package or extra off-roading options on the Jeep. And I'm not being anti-Cadillac here. The Lexus RX and Acura MDX have the same problem. Their basic platform, transmissions, and so on are all adapted from more humble vehicles and therefore do not support what it takes to offer a full line that can compete with the more prominent and expensive German rivals. Off-roading isn't a requirement here, but I'm just mentioning the merits of that specific platform. While it's entirely possible that the new XT5 or MKX or RX are modified sufficiently to accommodate more powerful and exclusive options that would raise the image and ATPs, at this point I think it's doubtful as none of them have intentions of doing so with these products. They're still entry-luxury products. Which again is totally fine and not a problem, but that doesn't mean it's an equal to some of the better platforms.
Every one is entitled to their own opinion I guess. Me personally. . I think the CTS is so much better looking than that Jellybean in your avatarThe CTS rear quarter panel does not look like it goes with the rest of the sedan. It appears to bulky to me. I think the upcoming CT6 has the exact same design language in the rear quarter panel too. Very disappointed in Cadillac new design!
