  1. 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!
  2. 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!
  3. 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!
  4. 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!
  5. Continental Uncovered

    I completely agree!
  6. 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!!
  7. 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!!
  8. 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!
  9. Buick News: Rumorpile: What's In the Pipeline for Buick

    I was hoping the next gen Regal was going RWD based and sized between the Cadillac ATS and CTS. That way they could do a coupe version and a new Grand National version of that using the 3.6 Turbo V6 from the ATS V for power! Then the ATS V could get the upcoming Cadillac exclusive 4.5L 500HP Turbo V8!----Oh well!
  10. I wish they would use a modified version of the Alpha Platform for these Crossovers! It would be nice if they were RWD based so as to be truly Competitive in the Premium Segment instead of just more predictable FWD based GM Crap!
  11. Nissan News: Next Nissan Z Could Return To Its Roots

    That last line could be the end of a REAL Z car! Some UGLY FWD based peace of CRAP would be an awful end to a car whos type is rare enough these days!
  12. Lincoln News: Rumorpile: Ford Is Dumping Money At Lincoln

    This D6 Platform soumds like a dream! I have been saying for thirty years now that someone needs to do such a flexable platform where one model can be RWD for Luxury or Performance reasons while another can be FWD for more mass market ones! This could be Revelutionary indeed! Are you paying attention GM?
