With its 2010 Cadillac SRX crossover, GM hopes to fight back the massive offensive of the new breed of car-based Korean and Japanese SUVs, which are lighter, cheaper and much more fuel efficient than the truck-based dinosaurs like GMC Yukon and Chevy Tahoe.
The 2008 Cadillac CTS mid-size performance sedan has just received a new exterior styling package that makes the American sports car look a tad more refined than the stock version.
Calling its 2008 Cadillac Escalade Platinum Edition “the large SUV of choice among luxury customers”, General Motors tries to make the huge SUV a tougher competition for the gorgeous 2007 Mercedes-Benz GL450.
Set to reach dealerships in the Q4 2007, the 2008 Cadillac BLS Wagon -actually, the first wagon in the marquee’s long and glorious history- will be available with a choice of six engines, including a 2.0-liter 200hp flex-fuel motor.
Cadillac is making final preparations to unveil its facelifted 2008 Cadillac STS luxury performance sedan. Still built on the GM Sigma platform, the refreshed vehicle is offered as a rear-wheel drive (RWD) model, but a decent full-wheel drive transmission can also be ordered as a not terribly overpriced option.
General Motors is expanding its presence on the European market with new station wagon based on the current Cadillac BLS compact sedan.

The long-overdue 2008 Cadillac Escalade Hybrid SUV will, probably, be officially presented to the local public sometime before the end of year 2007. Trying to somehow off-set the huge SUV’s most glaring problem, General Motors will complement its powerful 6.0-liter V8 engine with a pair of electric motors rated at 60kW and a nickel-metal hydride battery pack placed beneath the third row.
