Recently, we found out that Cadillac would be showing off their new flagship car at the New York Auto Show in April. Now, Cadillac has announced not only the production timeframe but also the factory that will be tasked with building the new car.
GM’s recent $384 Million investment in their Detroit-Hamtramck plant, that also builds the Cadillac ELR among other GM products, will enable the factory to produce the new flagship starting in the 4th quarter of 2015.
Built on GM’s new Omega platform, designed exclusively for this uber-Cadillac, the new car’s name will be announced in the coming months (though rumors abound of it being called ‘LTS’). Additionally, Cadillac confirmed that the new car, expected to be a large 4-door sedan, will slot above the XTS in the lineup. For at least some time, the XTS will remain (likely as a hedge against seeing a drop in overall sales to Cadillac traditionalists if the XTS disappeared).
