Exactly, hire Dodge marketing.

Looks nice so far. I'm interested to see more pics & what the specs are for it. I think its supposed to be inveiled in ~5 weeks at the New York Autoshow.

Nearly all styling elements on cars can be said to be part of some fad or another. Every 5 to 10 years whatever is in now gets replaced with something else. Tail fins, excess chrome, oversized tacky graphics, landau roofs with opera windows, the back and forth switching between angular and rounded body styles ... it goes on and on.

If an automaker doesn't pay attention to what people want now, they're going to lose a lot of sales to their competitors that do. Plus, what incentive do automakers have to actually design a car that won't look out of date a decade from now (if that were even possible)? If it still looks contemporary by then, owners would less likely to buy a new car in 2025 to replace it ... and how does that help their sales numbers?

In this category, there really isn't "overdoing". I hope Cadillac has some intersting/innovative tech in the LED's

The only info we have on the new NA V6 that may make its way into the 6th gen is that it may be called LGX and that it has cylinder deactivation.

I wonder if the next gen of V6's will stick with the single 3.6L (or some other 3.5ish) displacement or split it up into a large & small version (ie, a 3.1 and a 3.9). I can see arguments for either route but I would imagine that GM will most likely stick (at least in North America) to a 'one size fits all' approach

So if you Google search "dare greatly," both Cadillac's new site come up, and lincoln has stolen the tag line to get attention. Hmm Lincoln's getting desperate haha.
