    2014 CTS Has a 7K Price Increase

    This will be interesting. If it priced that close to a BMW or Mercedes Benz which one would buy? Vsport is 60K.

    Not surprising. Wonder how much the real v will be when it comes out. At least 80?

    Sad, that much of an increase just doesn't seem to be worth it, although I'll reserve my final opinion until I see it in person.

    I think the $7K price increase for the base 2014 CTS will generally bode well for 2nd gen CTS resale values.

    The move to turbo four follows on the heels of both BMW (328i, which has been molto successful) and Ford (Fusion Titanium, which has been a giganto flop). The Bimmer has superb acceleration and outstanding mileage (5.9 s 0-60; ~26 mpg overall), while the Fusion (along with its luxo analog the Jaguar XF) has middling acceleration and poor mileage (6.9 s 0-60, ~21 mpg overall). Hope Caddy follows BMW's lead here, and if so it will have a winner.

    I need a bit of time to think about it. But let's face it the new CTS is not an entry level Cadillac, this honor goes to the ATS. So i do understand that "base" model CTS is quite higher than the old one. It make perfect sense to me. Would by I buy one? That's a completely a different question. Still I think GM is following big German with both offering and sale strategy. And I think it is a right one. I just hope the quality is there. Otherwise it it good bye a cadillac for me. There are just too many alternatives.....

    I still have a wandering eye for the Jag. I also like Audi (but their dealership is just too far for me. Only one in Jax and it is 45 min away).

    Re: 2014 CTS Has a 7K Price Increase

    One major thing that has bugged me about the article is the statement that the new CTS is 1.5 seconds quicker 0-60. Do they mean the new turbo four is that much faster in relation to the 3.0. I can accept that fact, but if they are talking about the 3.6 which is the majority of CTS models sold, then they are just blowing smoke. I've read numerous sources, and no I have not done an "official" test on my own vehicle, but the 2nd Gen CTS with the 3.6 is suppose to do 0-60 in anywhere from 6.0 seconds flat to 6.3 seconds, depending on the source.

    Its a bit lighter and in rear wheel drive some of the models have the 8 speed trans. I believe the base models and the AWDs are still a 6 speed.

    I am not sure the 8 speed is ready for production yet. They were having issues getting it ready in time. Might have the 6 speed to start then the 8 speed. I would never get this French 6 speed ever again.

    I don't know where I read that but I heard the same thing about the 8 speed being "rushed".

    I second that one Tinman. The lazy transmission in these cars drives me nuts!
