And out of nowhere, GM CEO Dan Akerson confirmed to USA Today that Cadillac will be launching a full-sized rear-wheel-drive flagship in two years time. Most of the mainstream media is abuzz with the news… we’ll pretend to act surprised. Though Akerson didn’t utter what the upcoming S-Class-fighter will be called, we have strong reason to believe the car will be called LTS, based on official trademark filings.
As for what sort of looks will grace the flagship, it “won’t resemble the brand’s recent concept cars, but will use some styling highlights from them,” most likely carrying a more polished look of Cadillac’s Art and Science design language, vertical headlamps and all.
Meanwhile, it’s anticipated that Cadillac will showcase something special during next month’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in California. Except unlike the Ciel and Sixteen concepts, this one may actually be the predecessor to a Cadillac flagship we see in showrooms come 2015.
