The Good: SRX - I personally think its a nice looking car. the bad: Cadillac Ecalade - The automotive equivalent of gawdy jewelery.

BLS - Not bad, but too odd. CTS - Love it. DTS - It's decent, I like it. Escalade triplets - Interior = Good, everything else = Not so good. SRX - It's not bad, but has odd lines. SLS - It's what the STS should be. STS - Blah... It's watered down. The G8 is more exciting. XLR - Are you guys nuts? It's beautiful!

Best Looking Cadillac: new CTS I also like the Escalade, STS & SRX The XLR is cool but has not aged as well as some of the others... Worst Looking: DTS. Those goofy FWD proportions make for a stupid looking profile. Like 99% of modern FWD cars the damn front wheels are set back about 12" more than would look pleasing to the eye. The current Nissan Maxima & Buick Lucerne are two more examples of this bad styling characteristic that plagues FWD cars. Pretty much everything about FWD pisses me off. Speaking of which if we include the EU only BLS than that takes the cake! That car has a disgustingly awkward huge front overhang. :puke:

I loved the 1994-1999 Deville, the 2002 Eldorado Celebration Edition, the 1998+ Seville.

I think the DTS has amazing lines and decent proportions, I know its FWD. But seriously it is a sharp looking car. Just wish it had a 6spd. auto and a new platform for 'er. I like the XLR all it needs is an interior upgrade like that give to the SRX!

Agreed. The '67 and '68 especially were cool with their muscle car front end looks, and the last gen were really sleek; I wish they had made the Deville rear end look more like that.

I also like the style of the '80s Smalldorado, despite its size. I liked the simple headlights, they were nice and clean compared to the chrome lined TV sets up until then. Quite a handsome car, in my opinion.

You guys all see the V-Series mesh grillework's origin on that '30 above, right?

Does the sixteen count (the new one). Best looking car ever IMO. Even though they built only one.

I think it could count. I think they made like 2 or 3. Because MT got to drive one at low speeds under like 50mph.

XLR/SRX- never liked these 2 designs. Too flat, dull and generic looking couples with odd angular lines, no trim or anything eye catching in there designs. Also overpriced. DTS- My favorite Caddy sedan. It has style and presence that is so lacking in most other modern sterile bland rubbish out these days. It may be FWD only but that is very appealing to me with traction limiting snow belt conditions. STS- The most overpriced Caddy sedan ever and the most sterile, bland genric styling to ever grace A Cadillac. A 21K Saturn Aura has much better and sharper styling, chrome trim and eye appeal compared to this lackluster snore of a sedan. New CTS- much better for the front and rear end but the flat plain sides of the STS remain and are my biggest turn off here. The interior is also better than the STS and kudos for the DI V6. Escalade- The best full size SUV by a mile and makes the already lame duck Navigator look very dated by comparison and it looks so much more impressive than any boring plain looking Asian truck.

The DTS looks perfectly fine, even good looking. A perfectly good looking geriatric car. It's from another era and it was old then. Everytime I see one, I get so pissed off at GM and Cadillac. It should never have existed. It ain't no Cadillac. It's masquarading as one. I dream of the day when Cadillac will break out and make people wet themselves at the sight of their cars. And not settle for the mediocrity that is the DTS and STS. Cadillac is iconic, it's more than just a car. Cadillac used to uber cool. Ultra hip. The Escalade brought that back a bit. They have a ways to go yet. Please come back, Cadillac. I'm waiting for you.

And while I'm at it: ...bring back names for your models and we'll forgive you this silly flirting with letters, they are meaningless, boring. you have Escalade, so just do it for the others.

Well, here I go with what will likely be some unpopular opinions. :AH-HA_wink: - I hate all FWD Caddies with the exception of the last Seville STS and the last Eldorado. The rest are just plain hideous. The current DTS is only slightly less ugly than those weirdly proportioned 80s/90s Devilles which were the lowest point Caddy ever sank to. - Love the Sixteen, Cien, and XLR - Like the SRX - Never liked the CTS with the exception of the V Series which somehow made a car I thought was ugly attractive. I still don't know how that happened. - I like the STS better than the CTS, but not in love with it. -I understand the reason that the Escalades exist, but other than the very first models, I think they peg the gaudy meter. Too bad really, as some of the details are very nice in comparison to their Chevy/GMC counterparts. In any case, they are over-trimmed, over-priced versions of far more sensible Chevies and GMCs. The SUV for those with more money than brains.
