    Others may disagree, but unless they pay for the vehicle I purchase, maybe they ought to be a tad more civil in tone
    Questioning is fine. Especially in the case of such a large purchase. But when the same questions keep getting asked over and over again despite being answered multiple times, it gets old.

    You're quite welcome. Perhaps you might want to question the purchase of a Jag XF ? It's potential range would be from 50-65K, depending upon base model and options chosen there as well.

    Amen brother!

    Re: MSRP ? why the big secret?

    The first CTS-V was a great "value" because it had a crappy rear end, cheaper interior than a V6 CTS, wonky shifter and a parts bin engine heisted from the Z06.

    I find it hilarious that everyone complained about all the shortcomings in the first Gen CTS-V, but then are shocked and outraged when GM has the audacity to actually charge a little extra for all the things they re-engineered and upgraded this time. This may come as a shock to some people, but 6 piston calipers, slotted rotors, superchargers, intercoolers, 19" wheels, PS2 tires, LED dash tracers, Recaro seats, gloss black trim, suede steering wheels, electric parking brakes and magnetic shocks cost money.
    Rest in Peace, J.D. (aka Dirt_Cheap_Fleetwood)

    Re: MSRP ? why the big secret?



    It's true though- the Gen 1 CTS-V has the exact same LS6 and LS2 from the Corvettes, including the cam, heads and pistons, whereas the Gen 2's LSA is a completely unique configuration of the LS Engine (different valves, pistons, cam, supercharger, etc). Every time you make an additional variant of something there's some extra cost associated with building it.

    Taking that into consideration, along with all the other upgrades over a V6 model that the first gen didn't have, and I just don't understand why people can't fathom that the price increase over the base model is going to be a little higher than last time.

    You and me both... kind of like watching a horrific crash.

    thanks for the good read this morning folks

    It is a toned down Corvette motor, not a Northstar motor built for Cadillac. New generation, same formula.

    And everyone expects a price increase, just something reasonable. I don't know how many times I have to cite the STS-V and XLR-V and say "These cars are simply not worth their sticker prices". I don't want to say that about the V2, because I simply won't buy it. This is why people like me care about MSRP right now...

    Re: MSRP ? why the big secret?

    I am eager to hear the MSRP so I can divide it by two and know how much money I need to have in 3 years to buy it.

    But joking aside, I watch gmpricing.com in hopes someone leaks it early there.

    Re: MSRP ? why the big secret?

    I think that GM has really messed up on releasing the pricing on the new CTS-v

    In my case, if i had known the price a couple months ago, i would have comitted to my dealer who offered me his first allocated V. But without pricing i didn't want to do that since rumors were off by almos 15k on zr-1.

    now with the economy, I'll wait no matter what. So the delay in pricing info has cost my purchase, and i know a bunch of people who have gone from being in the market to out of it(or delayed would be more appropriate)

    My dealer choose not to even order his allocation that's how bad our local economy has gotten.

    Re: MSRP ? why the big secret?

    I am currently on the Cadillac website and theres a $2000.00 on a 2009 cts-v for the western region and the 2009 CTS price range is from $36,880-$59,025. The base CTS is the $36,880 and since the AWD DI is $41,080 then $59,025 is your V not including a 2000 rebate. Can someone confirm this for me cause i am seing it with my own eyes but no rumor of pricing yet.
