Spy Images of Cadillac's New Saloon Spotted
|   Sunday, February 02, 2014
An all new range topping saloon from Cadillac has been recently spied during winter testing, although details and specifications regarding this vehicle are yet to arrive. This vehicle is expected to rival Mercedes Benz's S Class vehicles, which means the American giants are aiming at top of the range luxury vehicles. Unofficial reports hint at an LTS nameplate, which Cadillac reportedly trademarked late last year. It is roughly based on their XTS saloon, while replacing the same across global markets.


Considering current market demands and customer's needs, it is an interesting prospect as it could cut off a chunk of the American luxury market from Mercedes Benz and the other German brands. It would also be important for Chinese markets as basic needs are somewhat similar across both countries. Car sales are expected to increase in China and its surrounding markets. Hence, Cadillac could make a decent profit if it manages to get things right.

It is based on a longer wheel base than most current vehicles, which in turn puts it in a different class of its own. General Motor's Epsilon platform is underneath this design, although we were expecting something new on all next generation vehicles. Currently known as the Omega, we are not sure of its production name so far.
The first variant should be based on rear wheel drive, although we could be looking at an all wheel drive variant quite soon. Omega however is quite flexible, which in turn means it can stretch to a certain extent. We could be looking at longer vehicles in the near future. Such a vehicle would be perfect for the Chinese markets, considering current market statistics.

Styling cues have been borrowed from the much celebrated Elmiraj coupe and Ciel Concept, which is an executive four seated convertible. Heavy camouflaging has been done on this vehicle, which makes it unreadable at this moment. It is therefore unethical to comment on exterior, interior or other aspects precariously. Hybrid and V6 drive trains should be offered soon, along with different luxury aspects, much of which are yet to be confirmed.

An electric engine could be offered soon, as General Motors is working on fuel efficiency and alternate fuel cell technology. After an official reveal at Detroit next year, we could look at an official launch fall 2015. Sales are staggering all around America and this is a cause for concern. China is growing in every sense, while current foreign vehicle sales account for actually 100,000 units per year. Cadillac plans on selling 100,000 units in China by 2016. Hence, plans are currently being made to implement these in every practical field.

Boot and interior space is considerably high, which ensures maximum comfort for long drives. However, driving in urban conditions is challenging due to it large wheel base. Linear power delivery is must, although final production plans can arrive only after formal drive tests have been conducted. We will get back to you after proper on road tests have been performed. Stay tuned for more.
