Why Cadillac’s New York move failed

No one who has ever worked in Detroit’s auto manufacturing sector could possibly be surprised by General Motors bringing Cadillac back home after a four-year foray in trendy Manhattan.

In fact, it’s much the same dynamic that prompted Ford under Jacques Nasser to move Lincoln to Irvine, Calif., and then bring the luxury Premier Automotive Group ‘ Aston Martin, Jaguar, Land Rover, Volvo and Lincoln ‘ together in that same venue. That was 1999. Lincoln announced its return to Dearborn in 2002, and in 2009, with Ford then under Alan Mulally’s leadership, the Premier Auto Group was dissolved.
