Report: Cadillac still on track with a BMW 7-Series/Mercedes S-Class fighter, due within two years

A new report is in from USAToday, who recently sat down with GM’s CEO, Dan Akerson, who apparently confirmed to the renowned worldly news outlet that a “large sedan” above the XTS is still on the way and is due within the next two years.

Originally, previous reports were indicating that Cadillac was even considering an ultra-luxury flagship halo to set a new precedent for the brand. But due to bleak financial forecasting for the project, it was axed by the General, leaving Cadillac’s potential BMW 7-Series/Mercedes-Benz S-Class competitor that many of us have been waiting for.

And that’s the vehicle in mention with this report. It will still utilize the same rear-wheel drive chassis underpinning the latest CTS sports sedan, though in much more substantial proportions. Additionally, Akerson commented by saying the new luxury sedan from Cadillac won’t resemble any of the brand’s recent concept cars, but will be inspired by them using aesthetic highlights such as the fender-ridge headlights found on the current CTS.

Also on the table are potential specialty models based on the new large luxury sedan to be, such as a possible coupe variant to battle with the future Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe and the possible BMW 8-Series revival. But Akerson declined to elaborate.
