Newly appointed Cadillac head Robert Ferguson isn't even technically on the clock yet, but General Motors' freshest executive is already dishing out some juicy details on Cadillac's future.

Shortly after being named Cadillac's new leading man on Tuesday, Ferguson confirmed that Cadillac is strongly considering a new flagship model to compete with vehicles like the Mercedes-Benz S-Class and BMW 7-Series. However, Ferguson stopped short of saying such a vehicle has officially received the green light.

"We're looking at a flagship model," Ferguson told The Detroit News. "It would be the car everyone looks at and says, 'Wow, Cadillac is smoking.'"

Interestingly, Ferguson also revealed that Cadillac is considering a new two-seat sports car. Cadillac's last sporty car, the Corvette-based XLR, was a market flop.
