    BMW News: No V12 For You 8-Series Coupe!

    With no V12 available they should not have called it the 8 series! This car should have been the new 6 series instead.
  2. So they are making the V brand have less powerful versions of their V capable models. This is not really a good sign. A drop from 640HP in the CTS V to 550HP in the CT6 V is a massive drop! Will there be something above V in the future? V+ perhaps? Agreed! I could see a nice 500HP Turbo 3.6L V6 in a RWD based XT4 if they had had the BALLS to do that model on a version of Alpha! Oh well. :(
  3. I wish Cadillac would have introduced the XT5 and the new XT4 on a version of the Alpha platform instead of the FWD based models they have now. They would be more competitive with REAL luxury crossovers like the Stelvio and the MB models leaving Buick to do the luxed up FWD based crossovers giving Cadillac a more Premium image. With the Sigma platform they had the right idea having the CTS and original SRX based on the same RWD based platform. That first SRX drove and handled wonderfully much better then any nose heavy FWD based model can.

    Could this eventually be the Camaro Z28 engine as it goes from being a Cadillac engine to a corporate one within GM?
  5. I truly wish the XT5 and other upcoming Cadillac crossovers where based on their sedans Alpha platform with a base RWD configuration. They could have had true performance versions of these crossovers as well as their great sedans. This new V8 is much needed by Cadillac and here is hoping it will come in the next CTS/CT5 or what ever silly naming scheme they call it in a non V or V sport version!
  6. It seems to me this should be GMC instead of Chevrolet at least initially being GMC is Professional Grade and all that. But its still good to see GM do this all the same.
  7. That overused dogleg C pillar kink truly bothers me! Cadillac can do much better! Great platform and drive line but the styling just does not say Cadillac in the least!
  8. Problem with the slogan: I like your car model names. Looks like a list I had many years ago when the present names were coming along. Lasalle for ATS. Lasalle was the sub brand of Cadillac many years ago so why not their sub model today? Saville for CTS. Saville was the mid-sized euro focused model when it came out in the 1970's so Perfect. Daville for XTS. Daville was the large Cadillac positioned below the more premium large model so if they keep it around Perfect. Fleetwood for CT6. Need I say more? With these models I would also add Coupe for coupe models and Sedan for sedans as in Coupe Lasalle for ATS Coupe like the classy old days. You have a rich history Cadillac so TAKE ADVANTAGE OF IT!!! I would have a large Coupe named Eldorado loosely based on the CT6 positioned as a more expensive model in the lineup as well. Then I would find a naming scheme for the crossovers/SUV's based around Escalade in differing sizes and or marketing positions. Its a well known name now and it could be used across the crossover/SUV range!

    Buick News: The Reasons Buick Passed On the Avista

    This car in both 2dr and 4dr forms should have been the Regal replacement! In RWD and AWD forms it would be the only RWD based somewhat affordable sedan in the domestic market! Using the Camaro version of the Alpha platform it like the old Firebird/Trans Am was for Pontiac could have been the Buick version of the Camaro helping spread out the cost in 2dr form while having the 4dr RWD based sedan that nobody else offers in this would be price range!

    Ram News: Marchionne Wants A Midsize Truck for Ram

    Put the RAM truck line back in the Dodge brand where it belongs! Then do a smaller truck and call it the Goat to go along with its bigger brother the Ram!

    Continental Uncovered

    I completely agree!
  12. I could see two future gen platform's for these trucks having a base version for Chevrolet's Tahoe/Sub and GMC's Yukon. Then a more premium focused version with perhaps an independent rear suspension,Smaller Turbocharged Cadillac based V8's among other premium features for the Denali GMC's and the Escalade.---FIXED!!

    Ford News: The Questionable Future of the Ford Taurus

    So GM builds the Impala as a FWD car to compete with the Taurus when they had a better RWD ZETA platform that could have had its production moved stateside? Then the Taurus's future is in question while ZETA is going away as a less expensive alternative to the more premium focused RWD Cadillac platform? The Chevrolet SS should have been the Impala SS with a 3.6L V6 and even a turbo I4 for the regular model Impala!----FIGURES!!

    Hyundai News:Hyundai Introduces the Vision G Concept

    The midsection of the body is quite lovely! I just love a large coupe. A Buick Avenir coupe would make a great and properly RWD Riviera!
