Word has it General Motors has decided to axe the much-rumored ultraluxury sedan it was developing under the Cadillac badge.
Developed as a rear-wheel drive flagship sedan, the new Cadillac was supposed to cost more than $100,000, a price that, according to Automotive News, was one of the main reasons why the whole project was cancelled.

Not being able to justify the investment in a vehicle that "didn't offer enough brand-building pizzazz", General Motors decided to take the designers off the program and reassign them to other tasks, our source added.

However, this decision won't affect Cadillac's plans to introduce a rear-wheel drive sedan that could rival the BMW 7 Series and the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. The new vehicle will be built on the new Omega travel and could hit the market for the 2016 or 2017 model year.
