Since Cadillac has brought in Johan de Nysschen as its new president, the decisions made by him - such as the CT/XT nomenclature and moving some of their staff to New York - have caused many to experience a range of emotions from happiness to outrage. So we don't know how many people are going to feel about de Nysschen's thoughts about Cadillac in the future that he talked with a couple of outlets at the LA Auto Show.
First up is Reuters who reports that that de Nysschen sees Cadillac selling a $250,000 luxury sedan, but not anytime soon.
"It is too early today for a $250,000 Cadillac. Fifteen years from now, it won't be," said de Nysschen.
Next up is Car and Driver who got a flurry of thoughts from de Nysschen. Here's what they got.
- Cadillac is working on an all-new diesel engine that will launch in 2019. The U.S. will be getting this new engine.
- A 911 fighter from Cadillac? de Nysschen says there is a possibility of this, but not till after 2020. (Also, Corvette may have something to say about this as well. -WM)
- The V lineup will be growing to possibly five or six models in the future. One of those models could be an SUV - not the Escalade though.
- Sales target for the ATS-V? Modest Volume.
