These cars were so bad that GM went into redesign mode before the paint was dry on these.
This was the low spot for Cadillac.
Cadillac had been failing for years and while they improved they have lacked consistent leadership and vision as GM has prevented that with a revolving door of leadership.
The cars we have today are actually good cars but no better than others in class. To be fair it is hard to stand out at their price point.
The real problem is what made Cadillac a Cadillac is just not possible today at $80,000. The days where they were great their cars were some of the most expensive cars with custom coach works. This formula today is not one Cadillac can follow.
My hood is they are getting into the EV segment early and I hope they can set the standard. This is a restart and they need to make the best of it. No more rebodied cars with Chevy engines.
the CUV line is a disappointment now as an XT6 is not worth the price difference over my Acadia Denali that it is based on.
