Of course its going to be more expensive than a Silverado. Its a freakin' Hummer. They were NEVER cheap. I'm 99% sure that the H1 was the first vehicle GM ever sold in the 6 figures (though some...

Agreed. The whole situation stinks of a lack of firm leadership for Cadillac. Whatever direction they go in will be fine, more or less. But the half hearted commitment is terrible for the brand.

And the last time I checked, GM sells few Camaros to rental fleets; Ford sells more Mustangs to them; and FCA does it by the boat load. And that breakdown has nothing to do with power (or handling).

The styling is pretty much entirely lifted from the C7 & grafted onto a mid-engine chassis. Not sure how that could ever possibly make it 'euro trash'.

That probably has more to do with the springs than the shocks. The spring is what bears the load & they're probably spec'd for being used when the truck is around 8000 to 9000 pounds. That requires...

If they can get away with lumping every pickup bigger than the Ranger into 'F-series', why not do the same with everything that starts with 'Mustang'?
