Unconfirmed reports have indicated that General Motors has given the go-ahead to counter the German luxury manufacturers in many segments. A Word is going on that the machine will be built on a rear-wheel drive chassis so as to attract BMW 7 Series buyers and will likely make its debut sometime around 2015.

GM is already is already in a frenzy to reposition the Cadillac fleet of cars in order to better engage BMW and Mercedes-Benz. All of these efforts began with the addition of the small ATS and the XTS large sedan. However, Cadillac may launch a larger CTS model next year in order to compete more effectively with the BMW 5 Series.

So, how and where does the newcomer fit into that mix? The model which has not been christened yet will be riding on a new Omega platform and will take the design elements from the awesome Cadillac Ciel Concept that has already made a mark at Pebble Beach. Details are scanty, but Automotive News has reported that the model may make use of a 3.6-liter V6 as well as a V8 and an eight-speed automatic transmission.

This feature also mention of a new and larger crossover on the horizon. It is expected to make use of the Lambda platform, which underpins models like the Chevrolet Traverse, Buick Enclave and GMC Acadia.
