  1. I loved the Escala and I love this. Coupla observations.. I see exactly what they did.. but because of size, the design exercise of the longer Escala (2010.5 inch vs this being probably 193-195 inch) could not be completely translated over to a smaller car particularly in profile. I still doubt that the CT5 will be much smaller than the current car with the CT4 still yet to debut. I am betting a longer wheelbase for both, even if the actual length drops a bit. Anyway,.. The black "faux window in the rear doesn't even bother me because tinting the car as I always do will make it a moot point. Only real disappointment is the door handles aren't the hideaway like the Escla. So cool that they are done with the 3.6L NA in this car and have gone onto feature forced induction as a sole means of propulsion. I am expecting changes in current HP rating from those as well. If the SPORT is available with the 3.0L... outside of an actual V, I see very little reason to break from the "Y" philosophy and offer a V-Sport. What I have noticed Cadillac has done of late with the VSeries program is put them on their website as separate models. Thus allowing them to stick tothe Y with Lux, Prem Lux, Platinum cars even in the V As a current CTS owner I love it.. and look forward to the VSeries debut in a year or so. I'll be sitting that one out as I want to go into the CT6-V, but curious and excited nonetheless Again its basically the same vehicle..there's an obvious nod to the Escala in the C-pillar, but what some seem to have issue with is the curved point.. I think it was added to give some flare..: the one singular interior shot looks to be very nice.. The fastback design comes off as nice and a very welcome change that may just shake things up a bit in the mid-size luxury category. I remember reading here just a few weeks ago, someone saying that the new CT5 wasn't a departure from the current one.. and once again that is proven wrong. The idea has been floating for sometime that the Escala was the design exercise to bet on for cues towards the new Cadillacs.. this is basically a 85% view of that car. This is its competition.. I'm inclined to once again side with Caddy
  2. For one.. Americans seeking a better vehicle than those asswipes in Germany can provide.
  3. No.. I think the head room will be fine due to the seat placement. Word is special attention was paid to avoid exactly what U bring up. The Trunk is even going to be as large despite outward appearance. Second.. it seems to me that the alternative would have been a filled metal section. With this.. properly tinted windows will make it a moot point and completely unnoticeable

I'll be sitting that one out as I want to go into the CT6-V, but curious and excited nonetheless I say just from this pic alone they have upped the ante interior.. and I think the current CTS interior is very nice and quite competitive almost 6 years later... this one looks very promising
  5. I'm still getting one... Screw it. I snoozed... well U know the saying. Compared to the Ms and the AMGs still a helluva bargain, and better looking to boot. An M760 costs almost $160K, the 2019 BMW ALPINA B7 xDrive.. $140K. Cadillac needs to price itself accordingly simple and plain The brand is luxury and in no way should be confused with bargain. It just doesn't make sense and I've been saying it since the ct6 debuted that once it had a V-8 there is absolutely no reason why it should not go price for Price up against the 7 Series Audi A8 or even the S-class.
  6. That made me laugh.. causing me to amend my other vote on your last post. It is standard.. but I think it should get as much press if its a foreign co as it does when its an American based one
  7. Wow.. way to minimize a blatant criminal act by a major multinational corporation. CRIMINAL. Defrauding the consumers and the gov'ts of the entire planet. AMAZING. No.. Sorry Robert. It wasn't just about poor emissions. I won't even get into the situations where the foreign makers are having as many, if not more concentrated recalls than Ford and GM these days. BMW.. cars fires.. Toyota.. acceleration deaths.. Honda.. ****ty transmissions and airbags.. Hyundai/Kia/Gen.. for just being liars about everything.. VW.. diesel issues.. Fiat.. just for being a POS. YEAH YEAH.. GM had its ignition recall debacle. But as messed up as that was.. it literally boiled down to a cheap fix to a cheap problem that wasn't necessarily an engineering issue so much as a budget issue, and people with common sense avoided anyway simply by not having as many keys as a janitor at a 200 room facility on their rings. I won't belittle it.. again it was a dumb move on their part.. but MY GOD.. VW literally went so far as to create a device to fool emissions standards into allowing their cars to pass.. then once the OBD port was disengaged.. VIOLA.. back to poisoning the air we breath.. But to U.. Its no big deal. Gotcha.
  8. Crazy to me that if this was GM or Ford.. the news would report on it everyday here in the US. I asked several people have they heard about it.. and each one of them said no. I asked a few about the Firestone debacle at Ford from 20 years ago.. or the GM 4-6-8 engines from 35 years ago.. and each one of them remember it.. and they were all no more than 30 years old themselves
  9. In terms of Blazers tho.. how did the CUV just out-handle a down to earth 2019 Nissan Altima SR VC-Turbo which is lighter by 750lbs.. with the plain Jane BS GM suspension? https://www.motortrend.com/cars/chevrolet/blazer/2019/2019-chevrolet-blazer-vs-2019-nissan-altima-comparison-review/
  10. after getting a warning for cursing some of U out I've chosen to go ahead and let U sorr... er... U good natured.. people talk trash about me and the sexy hot brand known as Cadillac.
  11. Oh. @Robert Hall ain't nothin aspiration to me about a $85K Grand Cherokee. Want! Go Buy! That's it. I "aspire" to walk into a dealership and get... Not!!!
  12. Its no excuse. What was your interpretation of that abandoned tagline introduced by two execs from Europe who are no longer with the brand for more than a year? Come on... I'm not gonna go all insulty here, but use your head. WHY THE FUKK.. do people believe that because Cadillac has the VSeries line they are supposed to be ALL PERFORMANCE suddenly? Mercedes has the AMG line and they are not even considered Sport-Lux... they are tagged LUXURY. Why would Cadillac not get the same treatment when they in reality basically invented luxury? Because Americans hear something an run with it.. they take little time to investigate the real deal. Cadillac has luxury cars.. they have sport trims. They are not and should not suddenly be considered the new Pontiac.. as in GM's Sport/Performance brand. Its silly..
  13. I know a few people with some of the exact vehicles U speak of.. and let me tell U.. not one of them take those vehicles to a damn track.. they do an occasional LUNGE from the stop light. Furthermore.. if U really believe that those vehicles can handle as well as a performance car then I say get your insurance policy up to date.. and let the right people know where U have it stored
