Cadillac is now on a roll, with solid models in virtually every category except for luxury crossovers, where the SRX is sorely in need of updating. (A new version is scheduled for launch in 2016, along with a revamped Escalade.) Next on the horizon might be a Corvette-based revival of the XLR or an ultra-luxury personal coupe based on the concept Elmiraj.
If Cadillac can inject the Vsport genes into the full product line and sustain its recent record of innovation, it can truly reclaim its position as "Standard of the World."
