If this China-market Cadillac STS — caught cruising in the Western states — indicates what's to come, the next Cadillac STS is going under the knife for the 2008 model year. The rehabbed grille furthers the complex meshworks introduced with the latest Escalade, and hearkens where the CTS's face is headed. Clear taillights and more chrome fittings also appear to be new Caddy tropes. The question is, will the new ads promoting the STS as an ironic cruiser for thirty-someting hipsters hit the mark, or will the STS retain its avuncular stodginess? What's with all the questions?
