( Autoinsidernews ) - General Motors is facing several major decisions about the second phase of its revival of the Cadillac brand. Within the next three months, Cadillac executives have to decide which models to move forward with. Cadillac is currently considering several projects and they will likely decide to move forward on some projects, while scrapping others.
According to Cadillac General Manager Jim Taylor and General Motors Vice Chairman Bob Lutz, the vehicles that it is considering include:
An ultra-luxury car priced at more than $150,000 and inspired by either the Cadillac Sixteen concept or Cadillac's Cien concept.
Coupe and wagon versions of the Cadillac CTS sedans.
An entry-level model priced under $30,000.
The future of the front-wheel-drive DTS sedan.
Taylor and Lutz have varying opinions on the some of the potential future products of the some Cadillac issues. Both Taylor and Lutz mentioned production versions of the Sixteen and Cien concepts. As for the entry-level model, while Lutz said "there's certainly an opening, whether we choose to fill it or not," Taylor prefers to keep the CTS as Cadillac's entry-level car. Either way, it won't be Europe's BLS sedan. Taylor said the replacement for the DTS could be based on GM's RWD platform, merged with the STS, or could remain on its FWD platform. Lutz said that a replacement for the DTS should be rear-wheel drive, as front-wheel drive does not match the luxury image Cadillac is seeking.
