    Re: 2014 Cadillac CTS: This Is It

    It is interesting how all of us agree…..for me personally this look does not do much. What got me to the CTS was the 08 design in and out. If Cadillac changes it too much I am going to look somewhere else, especially given my bad experience with the car reliability….

    I just hope someone in GM knows what they are doing…..

    Re: 2014 Cadillac CTS: This Is It

    I have a 12 coupe and was thinking about getting a new 14 when they came out. I do like the turbo 6 but definitely will not get a Cadillac in 14 because of the rear styling. I may be 71 year old but not ready to buy that "old man look". Any they will wonder why sales are disappointing on the CTS.

    Re: 2014 Cadillac CTS: This Is It

    Very disappointed. The current CTS to me looks like an angry sports car forced to shuttle around four doors. It's sharp and angular and looks like it is sucked to the ground. The new one looks looks like an XTS, a four door forced to shuttle around angry old men. I think the grill looks like a Mercedes, but the headlights look oddly small and that rear end is so indescribably bland I am ending my streak of 3 straight Cadillacs, between this, the fact that the ELR is over priced by about $10k, and the new SRX is so FWD bland. I guess this is what Cadillac wants (more generic cars to attract more sales), but they are going in the opposite direction of what drew me to them.

    I was going to trade in my 08 CTS for a new one but after this I may do something else. We just bought an SRX for the wife and I love it. Maybe I will get an SRX too. But I wanted a sporty car that is fun to drive the ATS is a little small I am really sad right now. May have to go look at MB or Lexus.

    I agree, if the new CTS looks as bland in person, the 2012 CTS is my first and last Cadillac.

    I was having a little buyers remorse after picking up my '13 CT'S knowing that there were changing for '14. I can officially say I'm glad with my decision after seeing these photos.

    Re: 2014 Cadillac CTS: This Is It

    These first pictures are sometimes a red herring. I prefer the styling of the 08-13, but will reserve judgment on the 2014 untill I can walk around the car and see it from all angles.

    Often the color makes a huge difference in looks. Black will look better perhaps. While we have to all agree that seeing the vehicle in person is way better than a spy picture, with the information at hand this thing is ugly and a real turnoff.

    and I would add, and see "exclusive" spy photos of front and back from a car with the same color in both pictures...

    HUH? You're looking in the wrong place then. Even the new "sportier" Lexus really aren't, and an E350 is a glorified European taxi. The Lexus is still a car for women and old men.

    I got a Jag XF and while I figured I was going from the frying pan to the fire after my 08's demonstrated "reliability", but it's been great. Oh, and fast (385hp 5L), and very, very sexy. Try one.

    Re: 2014 Cadillac CTS: This Is It

    Agree with the Jag.

    I will get an Audi way before MB.

    Lexus is not in my vocabulary.

    I will probably get a Porsche for a garage queen and continue to drive either my CTS or A6 into the ground as a daily driver.

    A6 = thumbs-up. A5 = two thumbs up.
