According to the latest word, Cadillac’s rival to the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, BMW 7-Series and Audi A8 is set to be launched at the New York Auto Show 2015 early next year.
Purportedly set to be named the LTS, this new Cadillac has been spied testing in the past and with former Infiniti chief Johan de Nysschen set to arrive at Cadillac very soon, the project will inevitably be further boosted.
An insider from Cadillac tells Autoblog that the new LTS will follow on from the most recent wave of Cadillac models and show that the American brand can compete with the very best from Europe. Beyond all the technologies that such a model will require, the Cadillac LTS will have to be fairly light if it has any hope of competing with the aforementioned vehicles.
From a visual standpoint, it is suggested that the Cadillac LTS will take design inspiration from the Elmiraj Concept revealed at this time last year.
