Cadillac indicates that the new model, which will likely be renamed something other than LTS, will go into production in the fourth quarter of 2015 following its debut early next year.
“The objective for this upcoming model is to lift the Cadillac range by entering the elite class of top-level luxury cars,” said de Nysschen. “Currently in development, this new rear-wheel drive-oriented sedan uses completely new, custom-designed materials on a unique vehicle architecture.”
De Nysschen’s comments are consistent with our previous predictions that the Cadillac LTS would offer rear- and all-wheel-drive and ride on a new “Omega” platform. We expect the big-daddy Caddy to utilize advanced materials like aluminum, high-strength steel, carbon fiber, and magnesium. It will also include Cadillac’s first use of autonomous driving technology.
