It’s not the first time and will definitely not be the last when we talk about Cadillac’s new top-end car also known as the LTS. Today, General Motors officially announced that the new vehicle will be built at its Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant starting the fourth quarter of 2015.

According to GM, the upcoming Cadillac will be positioned above the CTS and XTS models.

Its name will be announced soon and the public debut will be made in the first half of 2015. The new vehicle is part of the $384 million investment at the Detroit-Hamtramck and tools as well as equipment unique to the new model were already installed at the plant.

Using a brand new rear-wheel-drive platform codenamed Omega, the new Cadillac LTS is expected to use the 3.6-liter twin-turbo V6 engine bolted to the new eight-speed transmission used by the CTS VSport. As expected, all-wheel-drive will be optional.

“The objective for this upcoming model is to lift the Cadillac range by entering the elite class of top-level luxury cars,” said Cadillac President Johan de Nysschen. “Currently in development, this new rear wheel drive-oriented sedan uses completely new, custom-designed materials on a unique vehicle architecture. “In addition to new technology in the car itself, we are instituting innovative manufacturing techniques to assemble it with the precision deserving of a luxury make.”
