New CTS

I saw my first one tonight - got a long look at it parked in a garage. Sort of a dark silver color. That thing is drop-dead HOT. Really gorgeous. There aren't many cars that I think look better than my SVT, but that may be one of them (even though it's an apples-to-oranges comparison).

GM is getting it together and Ford is just floundering. We live in the bizarro world.

The non V CTS is even fast, they put a 300+hp V6 as an option. When I first saw it at the autoshow I was inlove. The car is gorgeous, sexy, yet still very masculine. The fit and finish around the whole car has gone up alot since the previous CTS. And the interior looks great, the fit and finish is great too and I love how they put the "wrap around" dash look into the equation. Personally I think the interior looks nicer then some other cars, such as the bmw, which looks boring nad outdated to me compared to the CTS. But yea wait until the V comes out, its suppose to sport 500+ hp. B/c the CTS is bigger then the bmw 3series etc Caddy is really having it compete with bigger cars like the bmw 5 series and such. Id saw its smack dab in the middle though. If I had the money Id consider going to buy one now too.

I haven't really even thought about it, but I just looked it up on their website. The interior looks fricken SWEET!

Wow - you're right. I barely watch TV, so I haven't heard it, but I used to write ads myself, and I can definitely appreciate that line.

And I agree with everyone regarding the interior. The parking garage was kinda dark, but I peered through all four windows as hard as I could trying to get a good look. It just looks amazing inside and out, with excellent fit-and-finish as far as I could tell (although I'll reserve final judgment on the interior until I can sit in one). But, on looks alone, I'd take it over any of the competition. (Yup, ANY). But I'm a sucker for a great bod. Same reason I love the 1st generation hatched Foci.

I really liked - or at least was intrigued by - the first CTS when it came out, but this 2nd generation is a HUGE leap forward. I saw a 1st gen today it it suddenly looked pretty dopey.

Ford needs its own Bob Lutz.

Cadillac has always (with a few exceptions of course) made very nice cars. It definitely doesn't mean that the rest of GM is doing anything right.
