Intent To Purchase (American)

This Cadillac CTS spot has been on air for a number of months, and while I should be immune to this pitch, I have to admit it’s working on me. Let me just say this, a Caddy has never before been a car I would consider buying. That’s clearly changing and not just because I’m aging. The product is transforming and the brand with it.

    Agreed, they’re nice. Well-designed and aspirational. They’re smart without trying to be clever.
