Today, the automotive rumorsphere continued to report on what we already knew: the impending arrival of a large, rear-wheel drive sedan from Cadillac. This model will be the first vehicle to utilize an all-new full-size RWD platform christened Omega. Yes, Cadillac will utilize the Alpha and Omega, what some could call the God platforms, if they wanted.
What’s new to report this time around on what could be called the LTS? It’s entire development process has been given the green light, and we can therefore expect the BMW 7-Series and Mercedes-Benz S-Class hunter in the timeframe of 2015 at the earliest. As far as appearances go, chances are we will see a lot of Cadillac Ciel design cues, and perhaps even mechanical similarities as well. After all, the Ciel’s twin-turbocharged V6 engine mated to a four-mode hybrid system and eight speed transmission does more than just passively lay dormant under that beautifully sculpted sheetmetal. It runs.
