    Re: Prices Added to ATS Configurator

    Cadillac went three years without a single incentive on the SRX Crossover and it's sold incredibly well, and that vehicle didn't have 1/10th of the buzz surrounding it that the ATS does.

    People with the mentality that Cadillac can't sell a car without incentives are part of the problem and need to get caught up with modern times. Cadillac retail sales are up, residuals are up, quality ratings are up and incentives are down. If you're holding your breath for a big rebate on new ATSs or cheap one year old resales then you might turn blue waiting.

    I am not waiting. I am foolishly hoping. A guy can dream.

    As for the economy. While still rough and recovering the people shopping for cars in this league are all professionals and skilled labor. They can afford no problem. Proof?
    Just look at BMW sales numbers on the 3Series.
    BMW sells because people looking for a car in that segment buy that car! BMW will always sell! But remember that BMW's are mostly leased so their numbers will always be high! And I know for a fact if you buy a new 2012 3 series you can get a 6,000 dollar discount because the 2013 is arriving.

    Re: Prices Added to ATS Configurator

    Well, I'm buying n ATS as soon as the one I want hits the showroom floor. I'm hoping to be at least $500-1000 off MSRP but we'll see. Just so long as I don't have to tell my friends I payed full sticker. Lol. But yes, I'm one of the guys willing to take the hit and be the first. Manly because the car will perfectly meet my needs and I don't want to wait a year or two for the off lease ones. This will be my 5th Cadillac but my first new one. And, new NEW model at that so I'm excited! O to all you guys fussing about depreciation and marketing..... I don't care. People will buy them. I'm proof. Yes, deals will come later but I'm not waiting. Now, what color?!

    My sentiment also. If you want it buy it. The end.

    I am anxious to see an ATS in the blue color. Not a picture, I want to see it first hand.

    The lighter glacier blue or the darker sapphire blue?

    Re: Prices Added to ATS Configurator

    I'm thinking of either Thunder Gray Chromaflair or one of the blacks. I'll have to see them in person to decide. I wish they offered the car in the Mocha Steel Metallic but they don't....

    Oops. I think Sapphire Blue is only on the XTS. Your correct. It's Opulent Blue.

    And today $2000 off and 0% and if you pay cash it is $4000 off sticker! Why such big incentives now? Could it be because Cadillac sales are way down which they are. And you can count on 1 year old ATS' taking a $10,000 hit easily. No disrespect intended but check the sales number for last quarter.

    Simple- SRX is getting a facelift and CUE next year, so Cadillac wants to make sure they entice people to buy up the '12 inventory before the '13s arrive.

    And "Such big incentives"? Toyota is offering $2,500 rebate on the Venza, a much less expensive crossover. If you consider a $2,000 rebate (for cash buyers only) on 3 year old, $40k+ vehicle that's about to be refreshed a "big incentive", you don't know Cadillac's history. It wasn't that long ago they offered $5-$7k rebates on DTS and STS. Times have changed.

    Yes but the DTS and STS were on the way to being phased out. The SRX is just getting a refresh. BTW Sewell Cadillac in Dallas Texas still had brand new 2011 SRX's in May of this year, and Sewell is one of the top selling dealers in the U.S. The area is saturated with Cadillac's, which tends to drive the used price down. However the used price for an SRX is still pretty high even though Sewell has like 60 used SRX's. Wait till December and there will be a fire sale.
