This Caddy might finally be the M badge killer ?

    We've got the upcoming Cadillac CTS as a 2007 model year vehicle, so I'm changing the discussion title. Thanks for bringing this redesign to my attention!

  • Has any one out there replaced the standard tires with regulan non self refilling tires? I would like to put tires on that last longer than the tires the car comes with and are less expensive to rplace when replacement is needed. Also, I intend to carry a full size spare. I would welcome any input.

    Hi gmsnead,
    This discussion is about a future CTS/CTS-V. Those who own the current model can be found in our Cadillac CTS discussion, so you might have better luck there.

    You'll want to check this out. Possibly, (and hopefully) the next CTS will look like it.

    I think the smoothing is a good idea, but frankly, it's lost some distinction, if that view is accurate. It looks rather generic other that the soon-to-be-copied headlight array and the grille. But for those telltales, it could be from anyone.

    Needs some panache, and not just in surface styling cues, IMO.

    I hope the interior does a 360 from the current. It's the weakest link, as it is in most GM offerings.
  • Don't like it. The grill reminds me of a Catera and the shape looks like a Maxima/Altima.

    I say if Cadillac wants to continue attracting the younger market then they have to make better changes to the front (I like to call it the car's face). What's the first thing you look at on the car? The grill. Start there and work your way back.

    does anyone know how to bypass driver default on 2006 cts-v. it has changed from 2005 model.
  • The 2004 car that i loved just got 2 feet of water in the whole interior because a plug came out in the trunk. Poor GM mech's. They fixed my leak and replaced the whole interior. Now i get a new rattle and panels falling off every week. It sounds like a yellow school bus. 25 years of caddy ownership...Do i go to a Foreign car?

    This discussion is about a future CTS. Since yours is a more current model, you'll have better luck in our regular Cadillac CTS discussion.

    should include a telescoping steering wheel that ALL of the competitors have. I have heard more than one person say that they couldn't get comfortable behind the wheel of the current CTS because they could not adjust the distance to the steering wheel after they got the seat adjusted properly. Hard to believe Cadillac thought this was a smart place to save money. Wonder how many people didn't buy the car for this reason.
  • THE NEW 2007 CTS does have a nice look to it. Does anyone know if the panels are dent proof as is the STS?
    And is it a 2007 or 2008 released in the spring of 2007?
  • I spoke with a representative from the NY Auto Show and he told me 'he has not heard from Cadillac as of yet, too which car's they will be showing' He said to call back in mid-March.
  • Are they offering an AWD version. I will not buy anything, due to where I live, without it.
  • the CTS will have a 4WD option on the next go around. What would be interesting is if they make the cts-V have the 500hp Z06 engine with 4wd!

    I have problems with the radio. will not remember presets. Caddy said they replaced the whole nav system but it is still messed up. now I cant get it into competitive drive mode.
    The disc for the nav sys is so old it take me over a river insted of a 7 year old bridge. Dont you think GM should update these discs for less then 300.00? :confuse:

    This about the future CTS, so dont post problems about your current CTS......

    Does anyone know if the new CTS will have ventilated seats like the current Lexus' or its cousin the Lucerne?
  • Maybe there is some hope as I am a late 20's something professional and I like the look of the artist's rendering. The car looks "heavier" and higher quality to me, more like a BMW or Audi. I agree though, they need to desperately get the interior right. With the reliability of the Germans being so bad this could draw some attention.

    According to the Sales Mgr at a local Caddy dealership the 2008 CTS AWD option is still up in the air. The problem is twofold, 1) the CTS is a rear wheel drive car with the engine facing forward (front to rear), they are having difficulty creating an AWD drivetrain which will fit the CTS 2) the STS AWD is priced at around 43-45K, if they fit the CTS with an AWD option the price break between the two will be minimal (similar to the Acura RL/TL dilemma). His guess is that Caddy will work it out to fit the CTS with AWD because of people like me who don't want an STS and who won't buy a CTS without AWD.

    Let's hope that he's right.
