It came to the autoshow in NY (no i dont live there) today , and heres the link describing the car in-depth like any other car on Cadillac.com

Its not even listed, and I just happened to stumble upon it while looking at the regular Seville

http://www.cadillac.com/cadillacjsp/models/gallery.jsp?model=sts

Cool features: Intellibeam, turns high beams on when no other cars detected and automatically turns them off when headlights/tailights are detected. Also, it has unique filtering technology that makes it better by "ignoring" other ambient light sources?! Remote start from the factory (04 malibu was the first to have this, now STS is second). Keyless access, voice activation and push button start. Heads up display, Adaptive Cruise Control (monitors cars around you and road conditions - it controls so much its like a friggen auto pilot). A simmular bose sound system from the XLR - 5.1 Surround!

And the interior, man the wood furnishings look good!

Sounds like they did the job to compete with the others...

So when do we move our current Seville/Eldorado section down into the "Past Cadillac" area and start using the new STS section as the current model? When's it going on sale?

Im actually starting to like it now, and starting at::::::::$40,995....not bad, im hoping it starts out being a topped out CTS. So you could be getting a deal cuz they top out at like 45k

Gees If you look at the pic on the cadillac.com site and flip back and forth to the old and new STS, the old one looks so out dated. The new one has grown on me so much that I'd buy it if I had $55K to spend on a car. The options on this car rivals all car at or above it's class. Can't wait till Motor Trend and Car annd Driver reviews this car. It just might make car of the year or definately be nominated.

I like it but would be PISSED when everyone asks if it is a CTS. What is wrong with the rear of the car.....not a single pic of it anywhere? Maybe i'll consider it in 3 years because like all caddy's it will depreciate by 60+% by 35,000 miles. But by then I will be able o buy a used 255hp Mercedes E-class turbo-diesel for a few bucks more.

dont be so sure about the resale, the CTS is holding well. the deville/seville are the resale duds.

Starting at $40k for the v6, huh? With gas prices soaring lately - this sounds like a good deal...

That's a nicely done car, but why does Caddy always display them in silver? Seems that the blue one in the one picture I saw would be more eye catching. Anyway, :bouncy:

and hope to raise the funds.

I agree, the darker colors are more flattering with these new Caddies. The others seem rather bland, not contrasting with the grille or lights at all.

I like the advanced features, I still dont like the exterior much.

hey i think i had "intellibeam" on my 85 fleetwood. haha but really i flipped a switch and they would go on when no cars, off when a car came, but off with white street lights and such. maybe my lights were just jacked huh
Peace
