De Nysschen: $250K Cadillac Flagship Ready By 2029

The upcoming Cadillac CT6 may be the premium brand’s flagship for now, but president Johan de Nysschen has a grander flagship in mind for the next decade.

Reuters reports the future flagship would likely arrive in 2029 with a price of $250,000, bringing Cadillac up to par against the likes of Rolls-Royce and Bentley. This would supercede not only the CT6, but a planned range-topping flagship due to arrive by 2020 per de Nysschen’s roadmap for his brand.

In the meantime, the CT6 is expected to be priced “in the 70s,” just above the current XTS. De Nysschen is also eyeing a vehicle below the ATS that would go up against the Mercedes-Benz CLA, as well as pondering additional crossovers to lend aid to the SRX, citing the Germans’ wide array of crossovers for inspiration.

    Since space x has such an erratic record the US will hitching a ride with the Soviets for 10 more years. It is really a joke. Obama kneed the space program in the groin. At least Cadillac is producing something.

    "Apollo in 1969. Shuttle in 1981. Nothing for 2011. Our space program would look awesome to anyone living backwards thru time". - Neil deGrasse Tyson The Russians and Chinese have surpassed us in manned space flight. Now the Europeans are doing the same thing in unmanned probes. The recent comet landing was almost entirely an European project. Yes, Cadillac is indeed doing better than NASA. What a disgrace!

    Hey man, let's all move to New York and have some ad hacks put together a cool car their grandchildren can build. Then tell the banksters next door about it, so they can get excited and hand us some cash for our Christmas bonuses..... Talk about parody of a parody. Bentley today is what Bentley today is, because back in the day they just built a darned good car. Instead of wanking around with moving trucks and scifi storytelling.

    This corpo-rat de Nysschen’s sounds like any other .. 'over-intelectuaised' corpo-rat .. Why Cadillac can't be .. Cadillac .. why they need to built hipster-mobile CLA 'fighter' ?!? .. The only 'real Cadillac'(extravagant, stylish, oryginal..) today is Escalade .. and CTS to some extent .. , ATS is not so bad , but it looks not 'cadillacish-sharp' enough ..and it's..'3-series fighter'..(GM has a lot of fights to make..:) The best 2 cars in last few years were 'Art&Science inspired' XLR and previous CTS .. Enough of this coporate bull...hit.. Caddilac should create sth ogyginal .. and people will come .. (This corpo-intelectuals' should all 'Carguys vs beancounters' by Bob Lutz)
