    Until the GM 8 or 9 or whatever speed arrives which will be more complicated probably.

    Re: 2014 CTS Has a 7K Price Increase

    Just learned the MSRP (US pricing) for the 2014 CTS AWD 3.6L 1ST Premium Collection is $66,500. That's roughly $15,000 more than what my 2011 CTS AWD 3.6L 1SH Premium stickered for. One will have to question the value of buying a 2014 CTS compared to all the interesting alternative similar priced vehicles, such as the 5 Series, E Class and A6.
    Aside from the pricing issue (I think Cadillac has raised the price by thousands too much), I'm still not loving the look of the 3rd gen CTS. I've decided to hang on to my very nice '11 CTS4 Premium for a while to come.

    Re: 2014 CTS Has a 7K Price Increase

    I agree with RAB, the increase of $15,000 causes one to question the value of buying a Cadillac CTS generation III. Some increase in price would be justifiable, but the actual increases announced seem excessive, in my opinion. And I could not have said it better, "I'm still not loving the look of the third generation CTS." Pehaps when I see one in-person . . .

    I have the feeling that GM decided it is time for Cadillac to match big boys on price. Not sure how well it will turn out but I for once will not buy a new CTS. Two reasons: 1st year model and price. I learned my lesson with GM products, never buy 1st year model car, ever!

    I feel that way about all manufacturers, BMW, Audi, I don't care who it is. With the CTS we all learned that it's even better to wait two years.

    that had more to do with the bankruptcy than a first (or second) year product (i think)

    Thanks for posting the pricing schedule here RAB! I keep forgetting about the new section for the 3rd gen CTS so this helped a lot!

    What a shame, I could only afford the 2.0t RWD Luxury on my budget...lol. I'll stick with the 2nd Gen...the new pricing makes me want to purchase a 2012 or 13 sedan or coupe!

    I have thought about this tread a bit more after returning from India. I took a new position and now I am responsible for certain programs globally and managing Australasia specifically hence my trip. But back to the topic, during a tour of one of the plant I noticed a Tata Nano, the $2,500 dollars car and asked if I can look at it. As it turned out it was car owned by the shop manager and he was more than happy to show it to me. There was plenty of space for 4 passengers and a bit of baggage. Car had electric windows, power steering, AC, radio. The quality was amazingly good for such an inexpensive car. My German friend made a comment - "I wonder, is MB 50 times better!" I was absolutely stunned to hear it from a German!
    Why I am saying it? Cadillac has to be very careful with the pricing not to loose potential buyers. Price it too high and you loose sales. I know cars are emotional purchases but in this price bracket there is amazing selection not to mention Cadillac has still a way to go to achieve the prestige level completion have. Good luck though I hope the old GM does not rise the ugly head again.

    Actually, MoFex, in all truth from what I have read, GM never got rid of that ugly head. They still have too many layers of management and too many internal issues.

    Was it Ford who said, "I may be fat, but you're ugly, and ugly is forever!"

    (Ford didn't say that).
