Cadillac is joining the RWD game in order to take on BMW’s best selling car, the 3 Series. Built on the new Alpha RWD platform, the future Cadillac line will replace the Epsilon front-drive Cadillac BLS in Europe and expand its lineup in the U.S market.
To fully compete with the BMW 3 Series, Cadillac will most likely offer, beside the sedans, a folding hardtop coupe, or a conventional coupe and convertible. Since the model is due to launch sometimes in 2011, I can’t really go ahead and draw a conclusion right now, I think we should wait and see what Cadillac will offer and what price range they will be placed in.
Could they have a shot though? I always wonder if any American manufacturer will be able to match the german engineering.
