    At least you're not rushing into anything.

    I saw one in person, and I liked it. I hope they have an option for the gear shift to be on the steering column. I don't like the ones on the side.

    I completely disagree. My triple black performance DTS blows away all of the previous Deville's with aftermarket add-ons and mine came that way factory.

    You do know they were the same in '05 as well don't you? It's not a deville anymore either. The performance levels in the DTS for '06 have dramaticly increased and I think the decklid now look like something sporty instead of the old way with the spot for the plate in the trunk. With the '06 design changes, I feel Cadillac may lose some of the old faithful but will open the door to a much larger group of buyers in the younger market. For anyone who hasn't driven one and has judged on looks alone, I suggest to drive one. It's much nicer than the predecessor.

    Re: 2006 Deville looks like Crap!!

    The only thing they did wrong was to dilute the DTS name by using it for all of the cars that used to be called DeVilles.

    I owned 3 DeVille DTSs prior to my 2006 and never called them DeVilles, I alway said DTS. Prior to that I owned an ETC, not an Eldorado.

    Don't get me wrong, I like the other models, but I prefer the ride and handling of the DTS.

    My father has had more DeVilles than I have, The other day I had the occasion to take him down a stretch of hilly curve filled road at a rather entertaining pace. He looked at me and said this isn't a DeVille, it's a big race car.

    Hello, old thread!

    DTS rocks. Just needs some power from the rear wheels.

    Yeah, that lack of power from the rear wheels is my primary complaint with them.





    ...sounds like that will be addressed with the next redesign though.

    400 HP and a 5 speed automatic would be wonderful.

    Just don't let them make a commie car out of it and put the gas filler on the passenger side like thry have on all the other new products. Also, don't do any takeaways on feature and function and turn the DTs into a big CTS or wannabe like the SRX.

    Cadillac is keeping GM afloat. as far as designs you have to evolve and grow. Cadillac has done just that. Cateras were not selling until they were re-designed into the cts. previous poster is mentioning lincoln products..cant hold a candle to caddies. I can tell from some of the comments you either havent driven the new caddies or just not a caddy ridah are you nutz?sweetest american cars on the road today..PERIOD.

    I thought that about the only thing a Catera and a CTS have in common is that their names both start with a C.
