The new STS WILL be RWD, and will probably come with the 5 sp auto from the SRX

I KNEW this would end up here today!
I came home and saw the new magazine in the mail. Opened it up, saw that picture and told my son that I liked it. After I revived him from the near coma I had thrown him into with my comment, I told him that I was impressed by the picture but would hold at that until I saw it in person.
It does look much better that any "spy" shots had hinted. Cadillac just MIGHT have a clue after all.
Of course if they had listened to guys like me years ago, we'd already be driving cars like that instead of drooling over them still another year away.
Oh well ya can't have everything. ;)

I got the magazine yesterday, and I would have posted it, but my scanner is out of comission :(

And cadillac wouldnt want to COMPETE..... That would make people want their cars, and we CANT have that!!!

how do you know that it's fake? No one but cadillac knows what the new sts will look like.

what I think he meant by "fake pic" is that it is a computer generated depiction of what the STS might look like.

It says "computer enhanced image" next to the picture in the magazine.

I Never claimed it was the real thing, as sandman says the magazine points out that its not real. Hopefully though its the direction they are headed in.

It looks good yes, but it looks too much like a DC product...

to my eyes also...looks alot like a pacifica...not a bad thing...but not as edgy as the cts...i would suspect that the final look will be more angular...more in keeping with the "new" look for cadillac...jackg

If everybody is truely loving the look, then I bet it WILL look a lot like that.. I suppose if Cadillac listened, though - that would be new...

I like it!!! It has the new "Bob Lutz" take on the art and science styling theme. I can see some elements of the Cadillac 16 incorporated in this design. Nice.

If all your talking about is pure power, the CTS-V will dispatch with both of those cars.

Looks alot like a CTS to me...Not ugly though. The Cts should have been its replacement except longer and overall bigger.

The real STS pic is in another thread. It looks like the CTS with an XLR front. Very nice. I love the Sixteen, but the first pic in this thread makes the STS look like a Town Car. Ugh.

Just to get all these threads on the same page, the best unmasked STS shot yet:

:thumbsup:Now that we know what the real 05 STS is going to look like, I wish that pic from R & T could be the "Ultra Luxury Sedan" they have in the works now, that would send the Cadillac name to the stars and back baby!! :D
