    EPA estimated 18 mpg city, 27 mpg highway (2.8L & 3.6L auto)
    EPA estimated 17 mpg city, 27 mpg highway (2.8L & 3.6L manual)

    Is that a typo i found it under specifications. The bench is optional i found out. A manual?

    I think those numbers refer to the 2.8 & 3.6 litre v6's available on the CTS.

    Seating Capacity: 2 Front (3 with available bench seating)

    Awesome. Only 291hp but if you're in the market for HP, buy an STS V8 or V.

    That is the fuel economy listed on the website but I don't even see a V6 listed in powertrain options so I assume it's a misprint.

    This car will kick ass in its segment. Expect them to sell at least as well as the model it replaces. Not quite the home run the Solstice or Z06 will be, but excellent nonetheless.

    Wow, that's a beautiful machine. I really like the gentle touches of Eldorado.

    I guess it's a mistake.
    Look what they say:

    Technology and power for swift throttle response

    DTS is the most powerful vehicle in its class.*
    • 4.6L Northstar V8
    275 hp at 5,200 rpm**
    292 lb-ft of torque at 4,400 rpm**


    • Available 4.6L Northstar V8 NHP:
    291 hp at 5,600 rpm**
    286 lb-ft of torque at 4,400 rpm**

    I'm pretty sure that part IS true. I remember a while back some people grumbling about how the Touring edition was going to have a REDUCTION in horsepower (as oposed to the 320 HP in the Northstar edition of the new STS)

    Exactly, he's pointing out that DTS isn't offering the V6es, so the fuel economy numbers are a mistake.
