Escalade EXT.

Need to combine STS/DTS into a 7 series sized car based off Zeta artchitecture in an extended length with V6, V6 diesel, and V8, V8 diesel applications. AWD optional

Add CTC coupe and CTW wagon to C-series family, also the V6 diesel engine. AWD optional on wagon.

At small sedan based on Alpha architecture under C-series sedan with small coupe and possibly a wagon and convertible to come a year after sedan intro. AWD optional.

The Escalade line stays untouched..

The STS is killed because the CTS does it so much better.

The DTS needs to be redesigned into what it was supposed to be to begin with.

The XLR-V needs to become THE XLR.

An Alpha Cadillac line needs to go in under the CTS

The SRX needs to be replaced by a CTS wagon. (Since that's basically what it is anyway)

The top of the Escalade line can be the Platinum trim, expand the V-Series to the DTS and CTC/CTW and maybe introduce a Cien as the figurative top of the line XLR (Yep, part wishful thinking, part reality)

And depending on how focused/sporty the BRX is, it can either be topped by the V-Series trim or Platinum trim.

I don't think they should dump anything, but they do need to change the direction of the DTS and STS.

STS should be in the middle of the segment (5-series, E-class) and the DTS should go one step further and go for the upper end of the segment (7-series, S-class). It's time GM put Cadillac back as the world standard. Without a 7-series, S-class competitor, Cadillac will always be seen as a 2nd class line-up.

The DTS. hands down. No one wants a big caddy anymore..(and old people do not count)

Next would be the STS because the new CTS makes it pretty pointless...

I would say SRX, but it is gone soon anyways....

None without a replacement.... and a few should be added.

The EXT is a pure profit vehicle for GM, why would you cancel a high dollar badge job that isn't damaging the brand?

It cost GM nothing to develop. Chevy Avalanche + Escalade nose + Escalade interior. You can't get much more parts bin than the EXT... so if it sells..even a little bit.. and does nothing to harm the brand image. Keep it.
