Cadillac revealed a futuristic electric SUV concept that will rival Tesla's Model X — and it looks awesome (GM)

GM is not the slow conservative corporation they used to be, they will eat Tesla's lunch with their new electric cars in a few years but still make the big bucks on their other large ICE autos.

 Do you remember when Cadillac said they would never build a utility vehicle?

Indeed, things change swiftly in these times.

Cadillac has to offer the product that the customers want, stay ahead of the curve. Shame about the CT 6 but unprofitable products swiftly get the axe in these times, it wasn't even a " halo car " for Cadillac, it seemed like the right direction at the time but GM / Cadillac is infamous for giving up on products like the Allante  the XLR, ELR, Chevy Volt and the HHR. Ford bailed out on their Edsel too, it happens, the marketing people got it all wrong. Just build good cars and they will come. Retro is still in vogue, it always has been a profit motivated industry.

I never saw anything official about the CT6 being discontinued, just that Hamtramck had no product allocation later in the year.  Two possibilities stand out: move production to LGR or import it from China.  Now it sounds like LGR will build the CT6 and we've been victims of fake news for a couple months!

Detroit auto show 2019: Why GM, Ford, Toyota are bringing dead cars back to life

https://www.usatoday.com/story/money/cars/2019/01/14/detroit-auto-show-debuts-retro-cars/2546120002/

At least they brought back a mid sized pickup truck, they are as large as a 70's - 80's pickup, the full sized pickups are humongous, like who has the biggest ............. LOL

Cadillac is a solid brand name once again, Lincoln is trying to make a comeback, FICA is a SUV pickup truck company now.

It's over 5 inches shorter than the Traverse and Enclave and on the Acadia's wheelbase, which more or less makes it an XT5 with a taller roof and more rear overhang for the 3rd row.

 GM was building about 125,000 units of B and D bodies combined. And sales were dropping annually, while sales of high profit SUV's was on the rise. GM made the gamble to offer a shortened version of the Suburban. It paid off very handsomely for them.

 The CV,Marquis/Town Car was built in a dedicated plant in St. Thomas ON. And added that it was considered an import by the EPA, mileage did not figure into Café numbers. When GM walked away from the full sized sedan market, it was essentially handed to Ford and sales rose. The CV became the default police car. But it was still inferior in every respect to the Caprice.

 When the CV was discontinued, many forces bought the Taurus. From what I have heard from many sources, it was universally reviled by the officers. So now I am seeing the Charger gradually replacing the Taurus. The OPP have many Chargers and Tahoes alike. Locally, they still use Taurus' but it seems they are being gradually replaced by Explorers.

 That one is nice. Essentially a Cadillac version of the Traverse/Acadia/Enclave. I have wondered for many years why Cadillac never had a version of this platform.
