    Talking Msg to Caddy: Pricing Info Please!

    Somebody from the home-planet has got to surf this forum (otherwise, where did The General get the idea to stuff a Maggie, err, Eaton sc into the V2?)

    So here goes: a straight, to the point, no joke request (plea?):

    Could you please give us, the faithful, some pricing info?

    It's the last man standing in the world of pre-release facts about this awesome car.

    It's the one tidbit that everyone is waiting for. Heck, it's the last sliver of info that people around here are planning their automotive lives around.

    Please?

    If need be, we promise to keep it under wraps here

    Re: Msg to Caddy: Pricing Info Please!

    I attended the CTS-V track day at Summit Point and was talking with the Cadillac rep. To the best of my knowledge, I believe he said the base price would be around 59k to 60k. I could be wrong, but this is also what is listed on Wikipedia. I know that site isn't the most accurate, but the acceleration and quarter mile times also match up with the most recent reports.

    I noticed the same thing. Then I checked when it was last edited and it was 6/09. So the info may have been updated when the official announcement was made.

    I for one would sign an NDA to find out the answer to that question.

    I am going to be without a car for the next 4 to 5 months. If the V is going to be priced out of my range then I would have to move on.

    I wish they would just break down and tell us.

    I agree. I need to plan before I can drop the dough. I just don't have it lying around. I also hope the offer the first cars to original V owners. First right of refusal would be nice for the pioneers.

    Re: Msg to Caddy: Pricing Info Please!

    with 1/4 and 0-60 times similar to the Z06 and a nicer interior I would assume similar pricing?
    69k?

    3.7 and a mid to low 11 sec 1/4 mile for a z06 is not similar. Also the Z06 has its own frame, own custom floor boards and carbon fiber that make it that much more expensive. The CTS-V is basically bolt on items obove a regular CTS and no real expensive V specific parts had to be madeand I am guessing they did not use any CF.

    $69k should be around the loaded price. a loaded Z06 is in the $82k range and special editions topping off in the $85k range.

    Gm will not give a price until they have to. ZR-1's go into production in July, you can now order one, but there is no official price yet. Gm will wait to see what the cost of supplies are and what the dollar is doing.

    Sorry but this forum did not give GM the idea to put in a supercharger. GM tries not to use one because of the added cost for parts, warranty repairs, and ease to modify the cars (see warranty repairs). Not to mention that putting a maggie on a V was IMHO a waste of money since my rears would grenade in stock form and the wheel hop was unbearable.

    I am also skeptical about the performance claims since none of us were able to come close to the V1's times when it came out. so much so that GM changed the official 0-60 time. How many have run the 12.8 GM did?

    But et's and 0-60 times with an automatic should be reproducible.

    I talked with the head of Cadillac public relations on Saturday. You shouldn't hold your breath for pricing info as they're still not positive how much the thing will cost to build or how much the market will bear. With a November release, official pricing won't be public until the September - October timeframe.

    That is what I have been saying all along. GM will wait as long as they possibly can to see what it will cast. The main things will be the American dollar value and materials cost because both are traded on a global scale. GM just announced the price of the ZR1 today ($105k with gg tax $117k loaded) and it goes into production in exactly 1 month. I am leaning more towards a $65k starting price, mebbe a little more with gg tax.

    my conversations (similar to lawfive) lead me to believe low 60s and mid with options (you GOTTA get the seats!)...
