A friend of mine in the media was at the NAIAS show yesterday. Media only day Monday and Tuesday. The show opens to the public this weekend. Now know that he's not a car guy, but knows that I am and that I am interested in the new generation V. He says that he looked at the plackard alongside the new V and said the bottom line price was listed at $72,000. This info can easily be verified for it's accuracy this weekend when the show opens to the public. I won't be attending, but I am sure someone from the area on this board will be.

not questioning it, but i find hard to believe if that was the case none of the media outlets picked up on that, at $72k it puts it dangerously close to the STS-V.

I know. I agree. That's why I quized him about what he was telling me. He insisted that's what he saw. Someone will be able to validate the info this weekend.

That price might make sense on the show car, as I would suspect it would be fully optioned. Auto, paddle shifter, sunroof, Recaro seats. But that's of course guessing. Like you say we'll know by this weekend when it opens to the public and some here get a look.

The STS-V may go away in 09/10 and this car would step in for both as it now has an auto, although not quite as much room.

Out of curiosity, where is it stated (officially) that the Recaros are not standard but indeed an option?

I doubt they (GM) would make seats an option. Hopefully the Recaros are standard.

Damn. That's expensive. But the car is worth it.. Crap. I'm not going to have it any time soon.

Here's a GM rep at SEMA showing a Sport CTS and mentions recaro seats as an available option on the V. (about 1 min into the video.) Now whether that's what one would call "official" ?

Curious if that would be inclusive of the gas guzzler tax or without :eek:

M5 pricing is well known & has been posted here many times.

I see now that the M3 Sedan MSRP has been posted officially now:

Sedan = $54.5K

Hmmmmmm.....

If that's true, then I think they're pushing the limits of what most people will pay. As great of a car as it is, a $20k markup over the current model is a bit steep.

I wonder if GM has raised the bar on the V to move it up a notch into the euro lux sport sedan bracket while at the same time elevated the regular CTS with over 300HP and all wheel drive to fill the gap. Seems like the old V is somewhere inbetween. I could see where a fully loaeded V6 CTS 4 with all the bells and whistles could appeal to someone in the old V1 market. Rest assured though, CTS and CTSV markets will soar.

IF the price goes to 70k, I'm back to looking for an E55 pretty soon.

just spoke to the dealership and the sales mgr is maintaining 60-65 for the 09 V. The dealership where I bought my Escalade and SRT8 (no comments) is being allocated 5 Vs.
I am on the list. Of the 5 cars 1 will be built according to GM and the other 4 are customer builds. He depending on input from Auto show interest, the builds will either commence in June or August. Based upon his 20 years he believes August for Sept delivery.

there will be no 09 STSv, so they can price it wherever they want w/no benchmark.

72k? my dad might not get the new v after all. sucks for me haha. a $20,000 price jump is ridiculous. they should've just dropped in the 7.0l from the z06 and tweaked it a bit for more low end torque.

$72k will kill the car since the C63 is just slightly more. Cadillac should take advantage with the crappy $$ rate. IMO it isn't worth $12k more then a fully optioned C6. Besides the crappy depreciation of Cadillacs, a Vette or Benz would be worth more in a couple years.

CTS-V video on Cadillac.com CTS-V mini-site says Recaros are an available option.

thats over a 30% markup over the previous generation... I call BS...

A few things on pricing in my opinion:

1. Cadillac will price competivly if they want to sell (STS-V anyone?)
2. I dont think they have the exact price yet (ball park, yes, but set price, no)
3. Options cost more...

I expect the base (as I have said in other threads) to be low to mid 60s... Options will take it to 70s. But keep in mind there are not THAT many options on this car vs the 08 cts (vs the 07 CTS-V YES)..

Recaros, Tranny, Sunroof, colors, bose, and a few other things.

A car company will only be competitive on the base price... has anyone priced out a BMW with all the stuff they want recently? Its rediculous. Part of what made the 04-07 V great is that there were very FEW options (sunroof, color, block heater were the only ones).... It was a simple purchase.

It would be sweet if the auto were a fairly expensive option.....

The STS-V didn't quite make the mark in the performance arena vs the competition. The M5 and real AMGs are faster, Cadillac should have produced it at 500HP+. With the 09 V Cadillac has stepped beyond the competition in performance and they will have to play catch up now. However I think we're in the same ballpark in the pricing guess. I've said for months 65K for the car +major options + gas guzzler tax. Even if the base car is 63K the guzzler tax alone will get it to 65K.

I was in Detroit yesterday and the GM rep manning the CTS-V area said to expect around $62k (not $72k).

I think we should all sit tight and wait for official pricing, Cadillac likely isn't going to say anything official anytime soon. :(

$60,000 - Base MSRP
$745 - Destination
$1,000 - Sunroof
$1,900 - 6 speed Automatic w/ paddle shift (same charge in the CTS)
$2,000 - Performance Package = Recaro Seats, Performance Traction Management (already listed as optional and not standard)
$995 - Some goofy ass paint - $1,000 (thunder gray, crystal red already upcharges on the current CTS)
$2,000 - Gas Guzzler Tax

Sunroof seems like a no-brainer as some "purists" will want a solid body, so it must be an option. The auto will be the same charge as the base CTS. We know the recaro seats are optional, but some may have missed that the "Performance Traction Management is in fact an option and not standard. My guess is this will be grouped with the seats to justify a $2,000 upcharge. The special paint codes are already available on the base CTS, again a no-brainer. So all told:

Base = $62,745
Fully loaded = $68,640

At $72K they will sell very few. Many will consider a slightly used M5 or E63 over the V. I think $65K fully loaded will bring GM the profits they desire.
Based on the previous posts, no one is will to pay higher than that.

Lets stop with the cousins uncles grandfather is a Gm god and told my sisters best friend that the price was..... The internet is the first to know anything and anyone or anything at a dealership is the last to know. They may guess right, but they are the last to know for sure.

I agree, a salesman I met at an auto show this weekend said the new V should be "around" the same price as the 07 V. I told him if it is then I would definitely buy one.

Reality check though, the 09 V will most likely be around $70k loaded plus another $5-6k title and license. That will put it in range of the C63 which is supposed to be around $73k. I mentioned it before but with the dollar rate being so pitiful this is the time Cadillac should grab the market instead of getting greedy. Not many foreigners are going willing to pay around $120k for a 09 V (England, Germany).
