    Re: Cadillac Vs. Lincoln: CTS Vs. LS

    Why the LS8 over the 3.6L CTS? Our V6 performs better than their V8...
    I can't imagine you're put off by the styling as you would take the V over the LS8...

    Ive always heard Lincoln has a better suspension than Cadys, but over all, LACs are number 1, Lincolns are for ppl who can not afford Cadillacs.

    I like the performance over anything in the V.....but I like the overall package with the LS V8 Ultimate......with the THX sound and DVD Nav....Seats etc.....Or id buy a used Jag Stype V8.......same as the LS but 10x better.

    I find that really hard to believe......they are all in the same price range....plus some prefer the style to Lincolns over Cadillacs.

    Re: Cadillac Vs. Lincoln: CTS Vs. LS

    When you buy a Lincoln or a Cadillac, chances are you want to stand out from the crowd. The Cadillac CTS stands out more than the Lincoln LS. Another factor to consider is - you see the Lincoln LS everywhere. This is understandable because they've been around for several years - and the resale value is terrible.. Just about anybody who wants a Lincoln LS has one. Now, like I mentioned, the CTS is newer so it doesn't have that problem - and most people who want a CTS can't afford one yet...
