GM's Cadillac Is Finally Gaining Ground

General Motors' (NYSE: GM  ) push to revive its old luxury brand, Cadillac, first started a decade ago. But it picked up momentum when CEO Dan Akerson started looking to turn the old cushy-car maker into a serious global luxury contender.

Cadillac's U.S. sales have finally started to pick up. In this video, Fool contributor John Rosevear looks at what's driving the Cadillac resurgence -- and at how far it still has to go to catch its big-name rivals.

    Caddy's come a long way, but they need to stop building cars that sound like an STD. Seville coupe, sedan and wagon would be a good start. and the new XTS would have really taken off as the new Fleetwood.

    the SRX small SUV should be the Cutless (Oldsmobile won't sue).

    Rappers write somgs about the Escalade, the rest of the stable needs to join in.

    I totally agree about the awful names...I call them the alphabet soup cars, and Lincoln suffers from the same affliction...but at least Cadillac is building cars that look like luxury cars, whereas Lincoln is building cars that look like a cross between a mid 80's K car and a PT Cruiser. Every car I have ever owned in my entire life has been either Lincoln or Cadillac....I sure wish something big would change at Lincoln because I will never buy another one as long as they look like they do now. They're U-G-L-Y!!
