    Re: AWD-Is it available now on new 2008 CTS?

    My question is, is AWD really that much better? I know a couple of years ago Lamborghini put out a special model that was RWD, and it accelerated faster then the AWD model (powertrain was exactly the same).

    less stuff to turn. like a stock 2wd truck vs a 4wd truck. if you can hook up at launch you really wouldnt need to power the fronts. the backs are doin just fine (if it hooks up)

    AWD doesn't do much in Florida; it's beneficial in the snow states. The launch on any surface is brutal in my AWD V8 STS.

    Snow states makes awd a good move otherwise I'd go rwd.

    I can finally get my better half out of her SUV and into a car because cadillac is offering the cTS with all wheel drive.

    If it were for me? I'd probably go rwd and save the two grand. Resale on the AWD should be easier with AWD though.

    The public wants AWD capability even in sports sedans.

    AWD a must for me due to bad winters.

    Otherwise its just marginally useful. I have driven both AWD cars and RWD. You WILL notice the difference when launching on dusty or wet roads, but it's negligible. Also, less tail happiness on dusty or wet roads when cornering, but who knows maybe you like a bit of induced oversteer, and besides you can get an optional LSD instead of AWD to control that. It really makes a vast difference in snow or deep dirt where RWD = no go, AWD = you're on rails.

    Granted, this isn't a debate between AWD and FWD. If it were, I'd say, ONLY AWD!

    Well I don't have to worry about snow in Georgia, so I'll probably just get the RWD.
