Today, we ponder about whether our car fits into a category of being seeing on the road as a government car or a statesman going to a business meeting. I will compare two cars for your review. The first one being a government car and next one being a statesman.
A Cadillac which is officially seen as the Presidents limo is one that aligns itself with a government car. Sometimes on the road, very high-ranking officials often use Cadillacs. They are often above Ford Explorer K9 units we see on the road. As in often the case, if the car has a dark color, blue or black it usually slows traffic down as its perceived to be a cop car. Right now, there is no Cadillac as of today in production that will fill this space, but my sources say more are coming.
On the other hand, we have a Statesman and a car usually used worldwide. The Mercedes Benz. This car is used widely by statesmen all over the world. In some countries this might be the only car available. It is a classic and has established itself as a symbol of power in society. Note, now we have a sub performance brand called Mercedes AMG which designs track cars for the freeways. Its gained traction over the years and is the benchmark for other car brands. If you see one on the freeway, you definitely know it’s not a cop but a high-ranking businessman.
To summarize, both are awesome! Whether you want to be perceived as a government official or a statesman. I have had the luxury of being on both sides. It is up to your personal preference on which car you want to drive, but always keep it in your mind that if you are here Stateside, both cars are awesome.
