Not sure if I like it, the headlights look too small and the taillights remind me of a first gen. CTS, which isn't a good thing IMO.

I'm not impressed by the rear end either.  It appears Cadillac is done taking chances with the CTS.  The original CTS was a ground breaker for them.  Since they're so intent on becoming an American BMW, perhaps Chris Bangle should have been invited to their styling studio.

Any Ciel on a production model is good with me!

From the pictures I saw of the new CTS, I can't see any of the Ciel's styling on it.

I saw Ciel in the more squared off front and flat grille.

From what I see though, the CTS has regular looking headlights.  I do see some trim under the headlights though, which is slightly similar to the Ciel. I wonder if the Ciel will ever get the green light?  Cadillac is firing up the ELR though now, which is based on the Volt. I believe since the Volt's price tag turns off would be Chevy buyers.  That's why I believe GM should have gave the ELR a try first, since Caddy buyers are more tolerable to higher sticker prices.

Oh yeah, the flagship is coming!

It ought to be interesting how Cadillac's new flagship fears against the competition. So far the ATS isn't doing bad.  Cadillac's flagship is very crucial to GM if they want to restore their lost respect.
