    Because the future of the full size V8 is uncertain…

    Remember the features that were removed from the DeVille and DTS over the years? Chrysler took them, and then added a bunch of new ones. Just a thought for the next cars we buy since it’s not clear what Cadillac has in store for us in this segment. Cadillac are you listening? Not everyone wants small plug-ins with V6s (looking at you XTS). Plenty of people want to stick to this brand, but will migrate to get the style they want.

    I saw that too. Hopefully, this is the beginning of a huge turnaround for Chrysler and hopefully it will give Caddy some ideas and keep them from getting complacent.

    I had two primary "issues" with my '05 300C: Nicely designed interior... executed by Rubbermaid, and a suspension that would loosen teeth fillings. Looks like they took care of the first item. It also needed AWD since the RWD I found pretty scarey in winter, even with the slight snow falls in Tulsa.

    Otherwise, it was nice driving 345hp and getting an average of 20 -21 mpg on my daily commute (28 on the highway below 75 mph, the point when MDS would put you back in 8 cylinder mode). Pretty nice drive at just a tad above $30K at the time. Think it's still pretty much a bargain for what you get.

    I'm not impressed with that new 2012 300C. Unless it costs something like $30k, I think the XTS blows that car away. The XTS looks like something from the future, this looks more like just an updated vehicle.

    Yeah, the XTS is just great if you want a midsize vehicle with a V6...
