Cadillac News: 2020 Cadillac CT6 Makes Big Price Moves

Recommended Posts

Yes, I bought a California car because I was living in Arizona.  Arizona dealers get a lot of California vehicles.    I needed it to drive cross country to my house in Ohio.  Wouldn’t have made sense to buy it in Ohio...

Geez...I wonder why it wouldnt make sense for you to buy a used car from Ohio?

And I didn’t downvote you because you said Quebec cars rust,  but for your shitty attitude and the inaccurate assumptions you make.  And your long, rambling incoherent posts.

I understand the lure of buying new. I did it once, my father almost always bought new, his father always bought new. There's appeal there; in a full warranty, in the 'untouched' nature, in everything clean, yes; in the new car smell. I've been looking at new trucks on the lot for most of this year, I would like to own one, I can afford one… i just refuse to pay the cost of one.

If you can afford it with no lifestyle penalties and you want to buy new- go right ahead! but you DO 'pay' for that, and significantly.

Its simple...dont read them...

Yet you do.

No...you downvoted because I touched a nerve.

I bruised your fragile ego about used cars and depreciation.

Do you have any comprehension of geography?  It’s over 2000 miles.  I wasn’t going to buy something in Ohio, ship or drive it to Az then drive it back to Ohio..

.I hadn’t sold the house in Az yet, had to move the dogs to Ohio and needed a new vehicle..my old Jeep had 170k and I didn’t trust it for the long drive that was looming in my future....I had had it 17 years, got my money’s worth. (I had bought it new, by the way.)  

No point trying to explain anything to you, you can’t understand.   Different reality context..I had a unique situation...it works for me...

And not once did I say you dont pay for it.

Alls I said is that new car depreciation does NOT affect me as I AMORTIZE a new car purchases PROPERLY...

Everything depreciates...even properties...(this is where @dwightlooi told me his story about some people he knows that have bought big homes because properties usualy appreciate in value but they cant afford said huge home so they sleep on matresses on the floor and eat wet from water noodles...) 

All this rambling because I CHOOSE to buy NEW cars...

Its OK to refuse to buy new...and only to buy used. Its an economic stupidity for NOT taking advantage of this era of used market...

Yet Balthy, you dont seem like the type to try to one-up your neighbour by buying a used Bimmer showing him up and other shallow souls...

@Robert Hall  also doesnt seem like the shallow type to do this.

I dont know @dwightlooi, but his story of his acquaintances about sleeping on the floor on matresses and eating noodles JUST to be in a big house for appreciation purposes actually sounds shallow to me...

And THAT does not impress me...

And yes...in Quebec...or Michigan for that matter, 

Buyer beware when it comes to buying used luxury vehicles... 

Its the rust that'll get ya!  Short lifespans for cars. We could talk about depreciation all we want ...but regular maintenance on high diva Bimmers on such mundane shyte like ABS brake sensors or what not take a toll on the wallet, and these things tend to breakdown more easily in bad weather areas more often than say...California...

Chevy Malibus have those same ABS brake sensors like those fancy shmancy Bimmers...

Except, a new, or used Malibu costs you mainstream Chevy prices to fix 'er  back up.

Bimmers...even 2 Series Bimmers, costs you diva prices...

On a car that will NOT last you a lifetime...unlike if you were living in...CALIFORNIA!!!

I got all night...

Why dont you do like I do...right a paragragh or two...

I wont complain...unlike what you do about my posts...

That makes 2 people in here that have complained about my tooo long of posts...

Is there a secret word count Im not aware of...

Its OK...

I wont be posting in here much longer.

Normally I dont advertise that... 

I dont need the sympathy...or the 

"Good, dont let the door kick you in the ass when you leave" speeches either.

Have a nice life guys...

LOL... a great American... uh... Canadian... novel worth of posts later it comes down to this.

  • Oldhurst442 lives in Canada and is worried about corrosion in used cars.
  • Because of import laws, he doesn't have access to cars from south of the border.

Doesn't change the fact that a certified 3 year old will have ZERO CORROSION and ZERO ACCIDENTS or it could not have been certified. BTW, I am sure canada has no restrictions of Quebec folks buying cars from British Columbia.

Must have been a poor quality Nissan inner tube. After all this is a Cadillac thread so you can only talk about inducing farts on quality inner tubes.

I never realized how stuck-up Olds was about used cars until recently.. I bet he's only lived in new houses as well.

I'd rather buy a used clean luxury car or SUV than a new 4cyl FWD $h!box w/ a CVT and despair gray interior. 

YUP.

I'd rather pay less than he did on his 1.6L Fusion on my 2.3 MKC.

      Volkswagen has release the pricing on the redesigned 2020 Passat and now it is roughly $2300 cheaper than the 2019 model.  It also becomes one of the least expensive midsize sedans you can buy, clocking in just $250 more expensive than the least expensive 2020 Subaru Legacy. 
      Some of that cost savings comes from carrying over a bunch of the bones of the car from 2019.  The platform is the same, not updated to the new MQB platform like China is getting with their version.  The 2.0-liter Turbo carries over as well, albeit with some improvement to the torque. Horsepower remains the same at 174 hp, while torque jumps 22 lb.-ft to 206.  The transmission remains a 6-speed automatic driving only the front wheels. 
      The 2020 Passat gets and exterior and interior refresh with new materials in the cabin and an updated instrument cluster. 
      The trims will be S, SE, R-Line, and SEL.  The cheapest S model still comes with forward collision warning with pedestrian detection and emergency braking, blind spot monitoring, and rear cross traffic alert. The SE, which starts at $26,765, gets additional chrome trim, keyless entry, push-button ignition, leather wrapped steering wheel, leatherette over the headed front seats, dual zone climate control, rain-sensing wipers, adaptive cruise, and lane keep assist.  The R-Line, which starts at $29,565, comes with all of the above, plus a standard sunroof, alarm, 19-inch alloy wheels, a body kit, and paddle shifter.  The top of the line SEL, at $32,015, comes with high beam assist, leather seats, heated rear seats, navigation, parking sensors, and a Fender audio system. 
      The 2020 Passat will continue to be manufactured in Chattanooga, TN and arrives in dealers in the next few weeks.

      Cadillac released the pricing for the upcoming CT4 sedan for 2020. Ringing up at $33,990 for the base 2.0T RWD model with an 8-speed automatic, the CT4 undercuts the price of the outgoing ATS by a few grand.  This makes the CT4 roughly $7,000 cheaper than the same size 3-series or C-Class sedan or just $1k more expensive than a smaller A-Class Sedan.  Adding AWD will add about $2,500 to the price.  Buyers who want a bit more can opt for the Premium Luxury package with the 2.7-liter Turbo-4 making 309 horsepower and 348 lb.-ft of torque and a 10-speed automatic, brings the price to $38,490, adding AWD to that costs $3,200. 
      If you're most interested in the V model with more power, 325 horsepower and 380 lb.-ft of torque, that will cost you $45,490. That gets you a RWD model with Brembo front brakes, a rear limited slip differential. Adding AWD to the V-series brings the price to $46,590.
      The CT4 goes on sale early next year.

      And here its is, the most controversial car in the #laautoshow, the #Mustang #MachE. I think they did a good job with it, and if they're going to make a whole family of Mustangs, this is a very good start.

      Well, after over 13 years with Direct Energy and surviving multiple rounds of layoffs, my 9 lives with the company appear to be up, the latest round of layoffs got me. I will be finishing out the year and then be on the hunt for a new position in January. If anyone knows of project manager positions that are open in the Pittsburgh area, please let me know.
