It was a bit sudden, and a shocker, but, then again, Johan was slow to roll out more crossover/SUVs. He did get the CT6 out, and now the 4.2L DOHC twin-turbo V8, and in two states of tune, I'll give him that. I have a feeling that it was also resulting of heated arguments and disagreements with some of the top brass, I'll have to look at the additional reports posted. What lets me down is now I'm hoping that a production Escala does not go by the wayside or get cut (it could even be named, too, instead of alpha-numeric), the flagship that "won't be a 4-door sedan". I'm even hoping for perhaps a halo-car of some sort, too, let's hope that Steve Carlisle moved forward and is ambitious.

This is also reminding me of Ford giving Mark Fields the boot. He was instrumental with saving Lincoln from the chopping-block, and had the philosophy of "no more boring cars", too. However, it appears that James Hackett is progressive and is moving to get some good results.

Lutz: “Expensive advertising campaigns showing emaciated, scraggly-bearded, tight-jacketed metrosexuals posed in rain-drenched back alleys, urging the viewer to Dare Greatly—at what?—flopped miserably.



Well, these same adds work for BMW.

The CT6 and the XT5 were both in the pipeline when Johan de Narcissist got the job. Neither were "his". The XT4 isn't different enough to become a gotta-have "thing" in the market. The real question is what has Cadillac been doing to improve itself. It appears that De Nihilism has been busy doing absolutely NOTHING.

To quote you: "Well, these same adds (sic) work for BMW."

Where are the ads?

I know that in your Kei-car-driving utopia you must think people in Starbucks are commercials aka "ads", but let me assure you that they are not.
