Cadillac's 2007 BLS, its first model built specifically for the global market, will debut in Frankfurt, barely six months after the BLS concept was unveiled at the Geneva motor show. Cadillac's 3-Series competitor will hit European dealerships in mid-2006, powered by a range of engines including a 150hp common-rail diesel, two versions of a 2.0-liter four (175hp and 210hp) and a 2.8-liter six (255hp). Depending on engine type, the BLS will get five- or six-speed manual as well as five- or six-speed automatic transmissions. As for suspension, it's McPherson struts in front and a four-link rear axle. Sound and vision systems will include a high-end Bose system, a DVD nav system with touchscreen and a Bluetooth-enabled cell phone system with a handsfree kit, and remote controls on the steering wheel. Square-jawed, sunglasses'd Euro model is optional.
