Not your daddy's Caddy

Cadillac is in the middle of a revival. Go to any Cadillac dealership and you won't find any of the old land yachts anywhere.

Cadillac is in the middle of a revival. Go to any Cadillac dealership and you won't find any of the old land yachts anywhere.

Part of that revival is the new 2013 Cadillac XTS, a mid-size luxury car that is supposed to appeal to a younger crowd, yet be conventional enough to retain its traditional buyer.

That it still appeals to Cadillac's traditional - read older - buyer was borne out when I went to pick up a car for a test drive. When I got to the dealership a potential buyer - a traditional one - was trying out the car. Things got delayed.

I didn't ask if the gentleman ordered one after his test drive, but I wouldn't be surprised if he had. This Caddy might be thoroughly modern, but it is still a Caddy, with an opulent interior and a well-proportioned exterior.
