With sales of the largest new Cadillacs sagging, the American luxo-barge company with the French moniker told Automotive News it plans to replace the DTS and STS with a single model. That car will be a yet-unnamed premium-luxury model, though the company's offering no details. The company's also considering an entry-level model priced between $28,000 and $32,000, though reports it would be called the Cimarron were deemed to be just us screwing around. Still, better focus from any automaker, especially Cadillac, can only be a good thing.

Makes sense, Cadillac's range has always been a little weird at the top. If the CTS competes with the 3-Series and the STS competes with the 5-Series, then the DTS competes with — what? It can't be the 7-Series, because that's the job of the upcoming XLS. The DTS has always been a car without a market, or rather a narrowly defined market of its own creation.
All this really means is that the next-generation STS will include a luxury package with soft suspension to replace the DTS, while the next-gen DTS is effectively canceled.
