Cadillac El Miraj RWD flagship spy shots

While we still have no insight as to it being named Elmiraj, STS or some other permutation of the -TS nomenclature (“LTS” has apparently been registered by GM, as well), new spy shots give us proof positive that Cadillac is indeed hard at work on a rear-wheel-drive flagship model. Spied for the very first time in some north country testing, these shots provide a first look at the upcoming range-topper from Cadillac.

Impressively long and large bodywork ride atop new General Motors’ corporate Omega rear-drive architecture here. Heavy cladding over camouflage may discourage finding any details, but the overall, sharp-edged and blocky design is clearly reminiscent of what we’ve seen on the new CTS and the recently debuted ATS coupe. A strong, wheels-at-each-corner stance helps emphasize the length of this stretched Caddy, and everything about the proportions seem spot-on for a new fullsize flagship for the brand.

It’s quite possible that Cadillac will ultimately festoon this large sedan with detailing reminiscent of the original Elmiraj coupe, though thus far we’ve only seen prototypes wearing four-doors.

Cadillac has been dropping turbocharged engines all over its range, like the 410-horsepower, 3.6-liter V6 found in the XTS and CTS. We have no clue as to what mill might currently live under that broad hood, but anything from that potent V6 to any number of the company’s updated V8 range would be appropriate for taking on the likes of the BMW 7 Series and Mercedes-Benz S-Class. We do expect a production version of this car to hit dealers for the 2016 model year.

Does this first glimpse of the Elmiraj sedan/Cadillac flagship get your motor running? Tell us what you think, in Comments.

‘For The 1989 Cadillac Seville STS, Hope Springs Eternal’

no comment Posted by

I recently spent a good chunk of time in Cadillac’s new challenger for BMW, Mercedes, and Audi, the 2014 CTS (full report coming). But back in the day, they used to compete with this, the Seville.

How A Car Dealer Screwed An Old Couple On Social Security Out Of $2,300 A Month [Stealerships]

There comes a certain age where your wits have started to leave you, but your money hasn’t. And that’s the perfect time for ripoff artists to strike. Like the story of this elderly couple, whose only stated income was $2,600 a month in Social Security benefits, got talked into, and approved for, a 2011 Cadillac STS with payments of $2,300 a month. Fantastic. Guess now you’ll have a really fancy place to eat your cans of dog food in. More »

Why the Cadillac STS had to die [Rants]

no comment Posted by

The last Cadillac STS has quietly left the company’s Lansing plant, and we can’t help but feel sad for Caddy’s middle child. Because although the mid-sized Cadillac was once an important car, now it just needed to die. More »

Cadillac still working on S-Class-fighting flagship [Over The Back Fence]

no comment Posted by

Although Cadillac has talked about building a real flagship sedan for years (heck, we’d heard they were talking about it in 2006), a world-beating full-size sedan hasn’t been a part of the lineup in, like, forever. And while the Cadillac XTS, a stretched version of the front-wheel-drive Epsilon platform underneath the Buick LaCrosse and Saab 9-5, is nice, it’s not enough to compete with the S-Class or 7 Series.
