Jalopnik has posted a picture of some Cadillac test cars under cover. It takes a bit of squinting and presumption, but it seems given the similarity in profile and size that the wagon covered up is a next-generation CTS wagon.
Now, anyone in the Denver area, keep your eyes peeled and get a photo of this without the cover.
Cadillac is working on a new concept car, penned under an informal slogan of “American Glamour Meets American Technology” – a riff on the Art & Science design concept that all Cadillac’s since the Evoq concept and original CTS have been designed under.
The concept was teased at a gathering in Monterey, CA on Aug 16th and will be shown at a ’2013 autoshow’ – likely Detroit, though Geneva is also possible as this, and a pending Cadillac flagship sedan, are a part of Cadillac’s push to become a global luxury brand for General Motors.
It is hard to make out from these images, but we’d expect something that takes the lines of the Ciel concept convertible and puts a roof on it while further extending Cadillac’s recent move to honor cars from their glory days with a modern flair.
Car and Driver assigned the task of reviewing the new ATS to one of the top guys in the car review biz, their former editor-in-chief Csaba Csere. An engineer by education and car reviewer for most of the last 30 years – he really knows his stuff and oversaw C&D during its time as the most driver-centric of the buff books.
He is impressed by the new ATS – and that’s about all I need to know to say that Cadillac has a winner on its hands.
