Caddy Gen Mngr, Odd Statement

Saw this in the Chicago Tribune Auto Section today.
--------------------------------
While Cadillac has shifted most of its lineup to rear- wheel- drive,
there's one very good reason it decided to replace its DeVille sedan with another front-wheel drive sedan called DTS for 2006. "Front -wheel-drive allows you to offer a front bench seat [ there's no drivetrain hump] and that's what the older buyers of that car wanted," says Jim Taylor, Cadillac general manager.
-----------------------------------------
That is a very odd comment. Meaning you can't build a rear-wheel-drive car and offer a bench seat. Funny how they were able to build rear-wheel-drive sedans up till 1996 with a bench seat being standard.
True, the center hump does interfere with a middle rider, but it was built that way for generations.

Well, the non-hump Deville has something on the floor
as big as a hump, whatever they want to call it.
