    Holy Crap!!! What an improvement over the presidential limo. I'm really starting to really like this car. Can't wait to see it in person at the NY auto show at the end of the month.

    When does this car hit showrooms? How long can I drive mine around like it's brand new?

    I like the slight refresh and it doesn't totally isolate 2000 - 2005 model owners like myself. The profiles are virtually identical. It's sort of like what lexus did with the LS. Us 2000 - 2005 owners have untill the end of the decade, or at least a few more model years, before we'll really feel like lasts Sunday's paper... I still like the a$$ on my DeVille better.

    Re: 2006 Cadillac DTS in Black

    Yes, I like the back of my DeVille better as well.. Front? Not sure.. The "newness" is nice on the update... By the time the full redesign comes along, I should be ready for my first new car - I hope...

    It looks exactly the same as the current DTS with new wheels and F/R facia refresh. Same FWD setup- if it's not RWD, its a non contender in my book- even more so if they are trying to slip a "new" design past us with the same substandard hardware. I expected the new DTS to be a GS430 crusher-not a re-dressed 01' Deville. Dissapointing for sure.

    Re: 2006 Cadillac DTS in Black

    Um, a "GS430 crusher"??? These are two different types of cars. The GS competes with the STS while the LS competes with the Deville. That is still uneven though because the LS is RWD and is up there with the S Class and 7 Series.

    Re: 2006 Cadillac DTS in Black

    Forget about the DeVille competing with the Lexus LS in our lifetime. It's like the Corvette competing with the Viper. Or the CTS-V competing with the BMW M5. Cadillac might get ahead for a year, but once the Lexus (or, in this case, Viper or M5) releases their new model, it's over.. They're just way too ahead of the game. However, Cadillac is working on a higher luxury full-size vehicle to compete with Mercedes, BMW and Lexus..

    Cadillac isn't trying to fool anybody with this new design. This isn't the "new" DeVille everyone's been talking about. That's not coming for another couple of years. This is the same type of deal you had when the first Escalade made it to dealerships. This isn't the "real deal" yet. Still, I don't believe the next DeVille will be, or even should be, rear wheel drive. Cadillac has plenty of rear wheel drive vehicles now. And the new ultra luxury model will also be rear wheel drive. Cadillac would be out of their minds to completely alienate their front-wheel drive buying customer base. There are far more than enough people who appreciate front wheel drive. Then you have the people who simply don't care which wheels power the vehicle. This number overwhelms the amount of people who want or need rear wheel drive.

    I agree Sal, the fresh look of the bow and stern are nice. If you know Caddies like we do you will be able to pick this one out. I think 2008 is the next re-design. (Sigma based?). My 99' Concours still has some of the old school lines which I enjoy. As usual the DTS will always be my first choice as a daily driver.

    Unhappy Re: 2006 Cadillac DTS in Black

    It does look much better in black, nonetheless i think cadillac has made a large mistake. To me it looks like a cobbled together Cadillac, the grill from an Escalade, CTS headlights, Hood and deck from an STS, and the 00-05 body and bumpers. Johnny Cash's "One Piece at a Time" comes to mind. The Deville is no longer the flagship model for Cadillac and its a shame. I think it started to lose popularity with the remodel in 98 or 00, i cant recall, whenever the lost the frenched tail lamps. The rear roofline even reminds me of a Crown Vic. cruiser, and when a Cadillac starts looking like a lincoln or a merc. i dont know what to do... not only that but they are following in the all RWD models, I think Caddy will lose a lot of customers, especially in the northern states, I live in Michigan and i certainly wouldnt want to drive one of these cars in a Mich winter, at least keep one car that is FWD the smallest model at least, the CTS, or even the STS, and since the STS is the unofficial flagship of Cadillac then keep the Deville FWD. I hate to say anything negative about the brand of automobile that i am most passionate about, but i think Cadillac is making a few mistakes. yet my tune may change once they hit showrooms... or maybe theyre playing a practical joke, "Bush gets the '06 model Deville as his limo, lets make it ugly as hell" And theyre keeping something so top secret that it will blow us all away.... wishful thinking im sure. Maybe the DTS-V will look hot
