QOTD: Which Celestiq Trim Should Be Which?
August 12th, 2022 5:08 PM Share
Earlier this week, we reported on GM filing for four trademarks for trim levels for the upcoming Cadillac Celestiq.
We mentioned that it was unclear which trim level would be which.
As a reminder, the trim-level names appear to be Celestiq Aurora, Celestiq Magentic, Celestiq Mist, and Celestiq Vale.
We're asking you -- which should be which? Should Aurora get top billing because of the name's association with GM (remember the Oldsmobile Aurora)? Maybe Mist sounds like the top trim for a luxury car. Or you're stuck on Magnetic.

as Donnie Brosco said... Forget about it.
Aren't those trim levels just different colors of paint?
That's what they sound like, at least. 🤷♂️
"Vale" is the [s]cheap[/s] lower-priced performance version with black trim and stiff suspension.
"Mist" is the "DeLuxe" version with a bit more chrome and trim. (Sort of like the "Decor Package" option.)
"Magentic" is the full-on Brougham treatment (in its current state) with more chrome trim than the "Mist" and all sorts of gimmicky electronic features inside. (Sadly, it will not include simulated landau irons or a vinyl covered roof, even as an option.)
"Aurora" is the Oldsmobile of Cadillacs (sort of like the old Cadillac Calais). No, that's not right. It's the top-of-the-line model, sort of a "Grand Touring" version, with not as much chrome as the "Magentic" but all of the gimmicky electronic features and a stiffer suspension.
How about the “Aztek” package? Wait, this car already has that…
Said it before and I’ll say it again: they need to restyle the hind end on this car, stat.
