    2016 Cadillac CTS-V To Start At $84,990, Taking Orders Now


    • How much for the 2016 Cadillac CTS-V?


    Cadillac announced today that it is opening the order books for the 2016 CTS-V which will be hitting dealers later this summer. To get your hands on one, be ready to fork over $84,990 (includes a $995 destination charge). While the price may send some of you into shock, the CTS-V still undercuts many of its German rivals.

    • Audi RS7: Starts at $108,900*, $23,910 Difference
    • BMW M5: Starts at $93,600*, $8,610 Difference
    • Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG S 4Matic: Starts at $101,700*, $16,710 Difference

    (*Note: Prices don't include a destination fee.)

    “V-Series represents the pinnacle of Cadillac, a brand that now makes drivers’ cars at the highest level. The new CTS-V is essentially two cars in one: a luxury sedan with sophisticated road manners and a track-capable sports car with awe-inspiring performance. This type of car is exclusive, the domain of the few who can access this level of incredible capability. V-Series matches or overtakes the finest cars in this elite class, while being more accessible,” said Johan de Nysschen, Cadillac president.

    Still much better price than the BMW and Benz. If it falls short anywhere it will be forgivable and if it leads in any area it will prove to be a bargain.

     

    Hellcat? Sorry this is a complete package not a value car with an expensive engine that can not use all the power it makes.

    Priced about where you'd expect.  More than a Charger Hellcat, less than an M5.

     

    All your favorite Europeans (which are this car's direct competitors) are more than Hellcat and a regular Charger combined, what is your point? Anything to belittle Cadillac? If you have no nice things to type, don't type anything.

    I would be more disturbed by a Malibu nearing $40K and a Cruse nearing $30K.

     

    Everyone wants to make more money but it just starts a viscous circle where you want to make more prepare to pay more.

     

    We all can expect to be millionaires and still shop at Walmart.

     

    I expect it will get only worse and the people in the pool able to buy a new car will only grow smaller or more in debt.

    So the price of the CTS-V = E63 - six months of Benz depreciation

     

    Not to stir the pot in yet another Cadillac thread (this is getting old), but have you seen this? Or looked up depreciation through a cost-to-own site such as KBB's? Or perused Cars.com or Autotrader listings for that matter? I think you'll see interesting things that may be slightly out of sync with what you want to see. Just saying...

     

    ANYHOW, that pricing seems appropriate given the previous model's pricing and the lower rung models' pricing, new vs. old. Perfecto.

    As we've all been told multiple times, the S-Class is the standard of the world. Even in your article, a Mercedes S-Class loses 32.4% of its value in the first year... or roughly $32,400.  Six months of depreciation is $16,200, so seeing as that was just a snarky guess on my part, it still seems to be pretty accurate.  

     

    In absolute dollar terms, after 2 years of Benz ownership, you will have basically bought a CTS V-Sport with your depreciation. 

     

    Using the percentages in that article

    An E63 will be worth about $68,750, a loss of $32,950.

    A CTS-V will be worth about $53,629, a loss of $31,361

    After figuring for the opportunity costs and interest expense of spending an extra $16k on the Benz, the Cadillac is a much better deal.... and it will be at least an equally capable vehicle.

     

    Percentages are fun to look at, but in the end, it comes down to actual dollars and sense

    All expensive sedans depreciate quickly.  Sports cars hold value, cars like a 911 or Corvette.  Which I never got why someone would pay $60,000 for a 6 year old 911 when a new one is $85,000.

     

    Cadillac really needs the CTS-V to sell on merit so they can build the brand image.  You don't want to have the image of "we're the discount luxury brand, buy our car because it is cheaper."  You want people to buy to buy your car because it is better or the brand image creates some emotional connection.  That is how Porsche gets fools to pay $800 for a carbon fiber rear window wiper.

    So SMK, in summary you are saying Cadillac cannot be standard of the world until it starts fooling the customers, even if it offers value, dynamics, performance, technology at par or superior than its competitors at a lower price. Got it!!

    No, I am not saying they need to fool customers.  I am just saying Cadillac shouldn't aspire to be the value luxury brand, they need to promote the product more than the price.  If this car is better than an M5, I'm sure Cadillac would like to price it at $95,000 base and pocket and extra $10k in profit.   But I'd imagine their pricing analysts don't see them getting enough volume if it were M5 money.  That perceived value or brand image is where the luxury brands make their profit.

    It is true that you will still save money with the CTS-V, even taking into account the listed MSRP for the E63 is actually $94.5k for non S models. According to my (by all means, rough; no Ins or EPA data to use) calculations, the 5 year cost-to-own for the CTS-V may undercut the E63 by a bit, on top of the purchase price difference. 

     

    Still, ignoring the snark... E-class depreciation =/= S-class depreciation < CTS depreciation, regardless. :P

    Caddy shoud not be allowing pics of the V cars in white.  Check out the ATS V writeup on C/D website.  It has the dark gray ATS V coupe.  Stunning and expensive looking, the white ruins it.

    CTS depreciation of late.. as in 2014 models has more to do with the overproduction that Cadillac is correcting than anything else.

     

    In terms of VSeries, versus say AMG.. the depreciation factor is in the Cadillac owner's favor.

     

    My 2012 VCoupe with 20K on the ODO is worth $42K after I paid $73K OTD, or a loss of 43%

     

    A '12 AMG E63 with same features and mileage is at  $58K, paid OTD $130K, or a loss of 55%

      Cadillac is going to have a quiet 2017, but 2018 looks to be a blockbuster year as the first of their needed crossovers will launch - the compact XT3. Thanks to a spy photographer, we have gotten our first look at it.
      General Motors' camouflage department did a really good job of covering up the XT3, so we can't really tell much about the design except that it looks like an even smaller XT5. One detail they weren't able to cover up is the intercooler, leading us to believe that the XT3 will come with turbocharged power - most likely the 2.0L turbo. A nine-speed automatic and the choice of front or all-wheel drive is likely. Platform-wise, expect the XT3 to use the underpinnings of the Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain.

      It is a good time if you happen to be interested in off-road pickups. The Ford F-150 Raptor, Ram Power Wagon, and Toyota's TRD Pro lineup offer their unique take. Soon, the 2018 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 will have its own take for your consideration.
      Today, Chevrolet revealed the base price of the Colorado ZR2 which begins at $40,995 (includes a $940 destination charge). That will net you the extended cab model with the 3.6L V6. Chevrolet isn't talking pricing for the crew cab or the option of the 2.8L Duramax Turbodiesel. This price undercuts the base Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro by $705.
      The list of standard equipment is quite extensive with front and rear locking electronic diffs, DSSV dampers, a 2-inch suspension lift, new bumpers, spray-in bedliner, 31-inch Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac tires, aluminum skid plate, six-speaker audio system, 8-inch touchscreen with Chevrolet MyLink, and wireless phone charging.

      CHEVROLET ANNOUNCES 2017 COLORADO ZR2 PRICING STARTING AT $40,995
      Chevy’s all-new off-road performance truck will be priced more competitively and have better standard equipment than the nearest comparable vehicles DETROIT — After revitalizing an entire truck market segment with the launch of the Chevy Colorado, Chevrolet continues to innovate in the midsize pickup segment. The high-performance, off-road ZR2 trim level will launch this spring for the 2017 model year with a starting price of $40,995 MSRP including a $940 destination fee.
      “ZR2 is truly a segment of one and does everything well — from traversing heavy two-track trails to high-speed desert running and full-on rock crawling. We’re thrilled to be able to offer it for more than $2,500 less than the next closest comparable vehicles. Taken in the context of serious off-roading, $2,000 will buy you 50 years of annual passes to Arches National Park in Moab, Utah,” said Sandor Piszar, Chevrolet Trucks marketing director.
      “Some vehicles that customers might cross-shop with ZR2 can spec out as much as $26,000 more than our truck — or the price of a well-equipped 2017 Colorado. When you buy a ZR2 at the starting price of $40,995, you are getting all of the significant off-road technologies standard with the vehicle, as well as an eight-speed automatic transmission and a wealth of other features at no additional cost.”
      Available options on the 2017 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 will include:
      Class-exclusive 2.8L Duramax Turbo-Diesel engine, paired with a six-speed automatic transmission, capable of 186 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque Choice of crew- or extended cab configurations (including short and long beds, respectively) 7-speaker Bose premium audio system Dealer-installed, bed-mounted spare tire carrier Full-length black vinyl floor (no additional cost — standard interior features leather seats and carpet) The ZR2’s starting MSRP includes a number of key standard features unique to the trim level, such as:
      Class-exclusive front and rear locking electronic differentials Revolutionary, segment-exclusive Multimatic Dynamic Suspensions Spool Valve (DSSVTM) dampers Off-road rocker protection Modified front and rear bumpers for better off-road obstacle clearance Exclusive ZR2 17 x 8-inch aluminum alloy wheels 31-inch Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac off-road tires New cast-iron control arms An aluminum skidplate that protects the radiator and engine oil pan Autotrac transfer case Transfer case shield Aggressive grille and hood combo unique to ZR2 Modified rear axle with a 3.42 ratio Front and rear tracks widened 3.5 inches over a standard Colorado Suspension lifted 2 inches over a standard Colorado Off-Road Mode Technology 4-wheel disc brakes Other standard features include:
      Tow/haul mode Trailering Package, including trailer hitch and 7-pin connector Integrated trailer brake controller Spray-on bedliner Heated driver and passenger front seats Wireless phone charging Rear sliding window EZ Lift and Lower tailgate Locking tailgate Recovery hooks A six-speaker audio system with Chevrolet MyLink Radio with Navigation and an 8-inch diagonal color touchscreen, AM/FM stereo with seek-and-scan and a digital clock, Bluetooth streaming audio for music and select phones, voice-activated technology for radio and phone featuring Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability as well as an auxiliary jack All-terrain spare tire with unique ZR2 wheel Four USB ports: one on the instrument panel, one in the center console and two in the rear of the center console Electronic automatic cruise control Rear window electric defogger OnStar 4G LTE with built-in Wi-Fi Rear Vision Camera Remote keyless entry Remote vehicle starter system 4-way power front driver and passenger seat adjuster with power driver lumbar control Rear seats with underseat storage Standard powertrain is the 3.6L DI DOHC V6 with a class-leading 308 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque that is shared with other Colorado models.
      The ZR2 is available only as a four-wheel-drive vehicle.
