Wow, gorgeous shots of the Cadillacs! Black Cherry is really a nice color. I'm loving the STS-V. Oh if I could just have the balls to spend $80K+ on a car. The CTS-V, gorgeous. XLR-V, ready for a redesign. My Gawd that Coupe! Wow! That is a stunner!

That CTC is probably the best looking car I've seen in a LOOONG time....

It's beautiful, I'm in love.

MMMMMMMMM! Black Cherry is almost exactly the same color as my Grand Prix GXP. If I decide on a CTS instead of a Saab in 2010, it will be a 2 door in black cherry. I'm liking the grille of the regular CTS over the CTS-V grille. yes.gif

I feel like I have seen the front of the Coupe before. By any chance was it the car actually under the tarp when Lutz was on 60 minutes and gave us that snippet of a preview a while back and got us all excited and worked up?

Yup, that would be it.

Don't buy a Saab no matter how big the rebate sticker on the windshield is. They break down, there is a reason they are in the bottom 5 of JD Power reliability rankings. Although if lots of torque steer is #1 on your shopping list, (which it probably is if you have a Grand Prix GXP), a Saab may be for you.

I agree the regular CTS grille is much better than the V-series. I just wish the base CTS grille wasn't all plastic.

I'm opposite on here.

I LOVE the CTS-v styling.....the grille, everything......but I'm less-than-won-over with the regular CTS.....liking my '07's more-edgier styling alot more.....

What I don't like about the 08 CTS is the C-pillar is huge and the trunk looks stubby and high. The old car was better proportioned, but the new front end is better. The bulging wheel wells make the car look a little chunky as well, I like that they tried to make it more aggressive looking, but it doesn't look as sleek as it could. Falls way short of the Jaguar XF, even with the odd headlights on the XF.

Cadillac is going to regret dumping DOHC V8 plans or V12 plans, because BMW is working on a twin turbo V10 that makes 625 hp. So much for Lutz claiming "the CTS-V will suck the doors off the M5." Although I'd be more impressed by a 30 mpg CTS than a 600 hp one.

The 2010s appear to be setting up to be to this generation of American cars what the 1950s was to that generation. A new begining of greatness.

Killing the STS, SRX, XLR, and DTS and replacing them with a dressed up Vue and dressed up, long wheel base G8 with V6 only power is a new beginning of greatness?

you know, ive sat back as you some some stupid things with no reasons or motives then to stir $h! up around here for your own pleasure.
when you post, it physically hurts me... i mean, i feal actual pain.... i really want to sum up your posts with a quote from Billy Madison:

what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard.

I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

According to Car and Driver Cadillac really is killing the SRX, STS, DTS and XLR in the 2010-2011 time frame. 3 of the 4 renaissance cars will be gone. I am actually glad to see the DTS go, although replacing it with a Holden Caprice style car isn't much better. I was really optimistic about Cadillac in 2003-2004, it seemed like they were on the comeback, now they have just leveled off and seem to be giving up almost, and content to be like Lincoln and Acura.

I was there today, and I didn't want to get out of that red XLR-V. I love the look of the dash, and how low the car sits! Overall I thought Cadillac had a nice display, easy to navigate, lots of friendly "How can I help you?'' s and I listened about the new CTS-V. I thought the display was nicer the Infiniti and Audi which didnt have much.

As far as I know, its impossible to predict the future greatness of cars, and you don't know how significantly the future large Cadillac will be over the standard Zeta based cars. The SRX will be redundant once the BRX comes along, so why have two? It's just cluttering up the lineup. The SRX is getting dated and in need of either a redesign or a scrapping. So as far as I can tell, if you know something we don't know (which I highly doubt), then spill it and stop beating around the bush, until then, wait and see and stop polluting the board with your smk posts.
