An American automobile manufacturer is making an effort to EARN my money.

Hopefully the others will learn. Get rid of the front-wheel-drive crap sedans, and the sideways-mounted V6, and allow us to use premium if we want.

Jeeezusss, it's about time.

Puder . . . I just don't see it.

Doesn't mean it's not there, . . . . I just don't see it.

Puder, you're right. There is a strong resemblance.
Looks good though.

I dont think anybody would have trouble telling the two apart on the street. Unfortunately, you know they are not gonna leave the Z06's LS6 motor in the CTS-V when it hits the street. It will probably get a detuned version of the LS1. Which is a power house in its own rights.

Either way, either motor, it's a step in the right direction.

Wait a year or two Roux and you'll be able to buy it with the typical 60% depriciation Cadillac get in the first 18 month!

They're on the right track however 400HP rear wheel drive, the front of the CTS still looks a little goofy tough.
