    You are correct. The XF is no flagship, leave that to the XJ.

    Right now, Id have to choose the XF, since you can get the sc'ed 4.2 allready. Since seeing them in person, Im not as struck by the XF as I was by its concept.

    I saw this too. Have you had any experience with starter buttons? Placement is a big issue, and this one COULD be troublesome. Also, a rotating dial instead of a gearshift? I'm all for new tech, but whats next, pneumatic handlebars for steering wheels?

    I hope that gearshift dial is electronically guarded...Id hate to brush my arm against it and accidently shift into reverse...

    I am afraid thye designers of the luxury brands have entered into the land where gimickry for its' own sake rules! The new cars techno gadgets have come to a point where they are actually impeding the use of the device rather than enhancing or simplifying it use. Talk to a BMW 7 series owner for instance; the ones I know love the car, but hate the I-drive. A push button starter that throbs ....... oh boy is that cool ....not! I know that basically the cars, even the basic ones are pretty decent transportation ........ but defining luxury as how much ludicrous crap you can pile on the poor luxury car to justify its' high price tag has reached a point where even the techno-nuts should be satiated. I have been an owner of Jaguars for over 45 years and I'm afraid the new XF just doesn't come up to the standard of beauty and distinctiveness that made the mark so desirable.

    Maybe the Indians can inject something here to make Jaguars as desirable as they once were!

    I like both cars but CTS all the way . It's more attractive,eye catching besides that it's a very design on its own .

    I stand corrected the XF is designed to replace the "S" type. As such it competes with the mid range Luxury offerings the: STS, the E Class, A6, and the BMW 5 Series. That the CTS compares so favorably, is a testament to Cadillac's raising the bar on the product development, and deserves Kudos.

    I couldn't agree with you more. The XF has more bells and whistles then the CTS but for the price gap between the two I'd hope so. With the CTS being Cadillac's entry level car but yet it compares quite well to the much more expensive XF. So that in itself is a testament as to how well Cadillac is doing
