Rumors of an upcoming rear-wheel-drive Cadillac flagship were white-hot a few months ago, but have seemingly simmered down since then, until now that is. According to reports, such a car has been given the green light along with the rumored Omega platform. The platform is now expected to take several cues from the Zeta platform, while utilizing lightweight materials in its design.
Unfortunately, speculation suggests that the model may not come to market until as late as 2017, with 2015 being an early prediction. It could be that the GM brass have opted to make this vehicle a replacement for the Epsilon II-based XTS slated to launch next year, rather than slotting the Omega vehicle above it.
Reports also came through about this time a year ago stating that such a vehicle was already approved, but it was believed to be categorized as an upcoming Zeta vehicle at the time.
