Speaking of Irony...

The Cadillac Forum has a younger crowd than the Mercedes Forums!!?? Go figure. Change is the only constant.

PS I still like my '04 SL500 the best!

Their customer base is dying off. They need to get 'em nice and young and make them believers.

They're also after "the boomers". "Been a long time since I rock and rolled..." Caddies are for old people. Visit Sun City here in Glendale, AZ. Wall to wall Caddies with silver or blue hair behind the wheel. [8D]

Cadillac brings images of silver hair, plad polyester pants, blue blazers, 25 mph, license plates with low numbers, golf bags in trunk, parked at yacht club for Saturday night dinners and martini![xx(]
Absolutely correct. If remembered correctly from one of the auto mags, the average age of a Cadillac owner is over 60. Therefore, the entire line is undergoing re-design. As noted by lnkprksoldier, the goal is to attract a younger demographic.
