  1. Jonathan Says:

    So the panel favors the idea of Cadillacs move out of Detroit and to New York City?

    Wake up guys! It’s 50 people and Cadillac got headline after headline that they are changing …

    True or not….the NEWS is out….Cadillac is EVOLVING….it’s MOVING….

    Literally moving probably has little value…but bang for GM s advertising buck…..moving already paying off as a public relations move…

    Could have spent billions conveying that message or Cadillac can move 50 people to an office in New York City.

    From a public relations and bang for your buck advertising perspective….I think it’s a stroke of genius ….

    From a reality standpoint of accomplishing (anything else)….of course it’s nonsense…but that was known from the very beginning by GM and Cadillac management.
