Cadillac's Chief Engineer: SRX Redesign and Flagship Coming Next Year

Aug 18 2014 08:45 AM | Cadillac News
Cadillac has some big things coming in 2015. Dave Leone, Cadillac’s chief engineer told reporters last week in California that 2015 will see the introduction of the long-rumored and speculated flagship. Possibly wearing the name of the LTS, this news seems to confirm a report from earlier this month which said the model would debut at next year's New York Auto Show.

Along with the flagship, Leone also said that 2015 will also see a redesigned SRX and the ATS-V.

“This is going to be a fantastic year for Cadillac,” Leone said.

General Motors Exec: ELR Is Not Our Tesla Competitor

Aug 14 2014 01:45 PM | Cadillac News
Many people see the Cadillac ELR as General Motors' direct competitor to the Tesla Model S, but GM's head of global product development, Mark Reuss says it isn't.

“People like to say the ELR is, but it’s really not. It’s a different car, it’s a different price point. It’s way-different technology,” Reuss said.

Ruess goes onto say that he isn't sure if the company has a direct competitor to Tesla.

So why do many people consider the ELR a competitor to the Model S? Probably from a quote from former GM CEO Dan Akerson back in September.

"If you want to compete head-to-head with Tesla, and we ultimately will, you want to do it with a Cadillac,”
