A friend of mine in the media was at the NAIAS show yesterday. Media only day Monday and Tuesday. The show opens to the public this weekend. Now know that he's not a car guy, but knows that I am and that I am interested in the new generation V. He says that he looked at the plackard alongside the new V and said the bottom line price was listed at $72,000. This info can easily be verified for it's accuracy this weekend when the show opens to the public. I won't be attending, but I am sure someone from the area on this board will be.
That price might make sense on the show car, as I would suspect it would be fully optioned. Auto, paddle shifter, sunroof, Recaro seats. But that's of course guessing. Like you say we'll know by this weekend when it opens to the public and some here get a look.
The STS-V may go away in 09/10 and this car would step in for both as it now has an auto, although not quite as much room.
I wonder if GM has raised the bar on the V to move it up a notch into the euro lux sport sedan bracket while at the same time elevated the regular CTS with over 300HP and all wheel drive to fill the gap. Seems like the old V is somewhere inbetween. I could see where a fully loaeded V6 CTS 4 with all the bells and whistles could appeal to someone in the old V1 market. Rest assured though, CTS and CTSV markets will soar.
