Also...looking at this again, I'm even more confused.



There are TWO volume knobs? The one below the screen on the left clearly says volume, and the small knob below the shifter is ALSO for volume.

What the f***.

Two control knobs too I think. They're overcompensating for the last generation of CUE, especially considering the new CUE is just the Chevy/GMC/Buick system with different colors and is one of the more user-friendly interfaces out there.

the one below the screen also has a power symbol and the one below the shifter lacks that function? in any case its not really a big deal

i realize that, it's just demonstrative of how busy Cadillac made this thing, both inside and out.

No, but the fact that Cadillac keeps swinging and missing by such a large margin is, IMHO. Forget about not being in the ballpark; they're not even orbiting the right planet. Acura has a compelling compact/mid-size SUV, Lincoln is developing incredible momentum w/ its SUV lineup, and Buick, for reasons that are entirely unclear, has China.

The XT4 seems to be doing pretty well in LA (I've seen several already), but Caddy needs to get its a$$ in gear b/c it becomes an Olds or Pontiac (i.e., no longer in existence).

Build the Escala intact as an EV.
Do a retro-futurized Seville with clear homage to the 1976 model, sized and priced like a Lexus ES
Escalade is gold.
Elmiraj = enlarged XT6 replacement / price reduction
Deville = enlarged XT5 replacement / price reduction
Imaj = enlarged XT4 replacement / price reduction

Lexus has the worst infotainment interface on the planet. Well were it better maybe they could actually sell some cars.

I agree the infotainment is terrible (had a UX loaner recently; not an impressive vehicle).

Lexus sells a ton of ESs and RXs, though.
