The interior looks great.

Much classier looking than BMW or MB for sure!

Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here? Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

Several points to be made.


A&S looks great stretched out over a long body, in Gen 1 I preferred the STS over the CTS. Now in Gen 3 all the cars look a lot sleeker, the ATS is (was?) the best interpretation of A&S because it's sleek and sexy while still having some of the Gen 2 CTS' brutishness. This new CTS takes the ATS and stretched it, and looks to have a much more brutish grill, which fits the slightly larger body.

Stupid exhaust outlets mounted in the rear bumper. Not actually connected to the exhaust. Please just use the regular exhaust outlets Cadillac, especially for the V.

Interior looks like a mix of ATS and XTS, can't tell too much though because there is too much shit in the way (damn engineers and their confangled laptops).

TTV6 :OHYEAH!: Probably the upcoming 3.6TT. Power figures around 400HP/400TQ. With lower weight it will put the 4,400 pound 550i to shame. Side note, I think I know what I want certified pre owned in several years.


Stop me if I said this before, but this is the best interpretation of A&S. Ive said that for every new Cadillac launch, just keeps getting better and better.

I'm not into comparing this with anything from BMW nor Benz just yet, because those models sell in higher volumes for a reason. I'm much more interested in seeing if Cadillac got the formula down right with this CTS for its intended buyer. Can't wait to see the final product, looks STS sized already though. Watch your back XTS....

Based on what I am seeing here, I agree 1000% with Doc that this is the best interpretation of A&S yet. The proportions of this car look great; much better than the current CTS or the XTS. It does look like a larger, more aggressive ATS, not a bad thing at all. And even with the laptop and all the other shit in the interior, I can already tell that I LOVE that dashboard.

This is going to be an awesome car and I can't wait to see & drive it.

Bravo Cadillac! beer

Is that grill real or just a fill in?

Obvious fill in.

I was going to say, that grill design is horrible.

The new grill is definitely bringing on more Ciel cues. The whole car looks very athletic and the dynamics will reflect that. I really hope there is an option for real exhaust tips.

Also, the current philosophy of each only having either a V or Platinum model might not work here. A V model is a given for this car, but I think it deserves a Platinum as well. It could really help when taking on the BMW Individuals and high end E-Class'.

I like how far back the engine sits. It's almost completely behind the front struts.

I need to see more but I have no doubt this will be the new benchmark just as my V was.

This new CTS will blow everything away.

I wouldn't doubt Brembos and MagnaRide being standard, just like the XTS. MagnaRide combined with FE3 and some good summer tires will make this car something to behold.

Turbos mounted in the V, and with the integrated headers will allow for almost lagless acceleration.


I'm betting for the V, it'll use a twin turbo version of the upcoming Ultra V8 (yes, it's back on) making it buttery smooth with upwards of 600HP. All they really need to do is bring out a good DCT and they could destroy the M5.

Screw a TT Ultra, use the smallblock for the raw power.
