Cadillac Gets Green Light For Rear-Drive Flagship Above XTS

Those nostalgic for bench seats and pavement-crushing suspension can now rejoice: Cadillac will build a flagship worthy of the Standard Of The World.

GM had been toying with the idea for months, but now it's official: Cadillac is finally approved to develop a sedan based on a new rear-drive platform, known internally as the Omega. It's an offshoot of the Zeta platform that underpins the Holden Commodore and more relevantly, the Chevrolet Camaro. But instead of the Australians working on this one, or GM China, the North American division will handle lead development.

Unlike those Cadillac land yachts of yore, however, the new flagship will feature aluminum construction and either a small-block V8, or a hybrid system.

And we don't know when we will see the new Cadillac, but sources say it will hit the great American roads by 2015 at the earliest. In the meanwhile, we'll just have to make do with the front-drive XTS, which is just thata stopgap.
