: Test drove Silver 1SE V8

Silver, i dont recall it had active cruise, nor hud. But it did have the heated seats, 6 disc cd changer and real wood.

Man, you dont feel like your moving- its so fluid when you drive it. The ride is firm but supportive and the seats are WONDERFUL. Feels like a big car. Great interior and fit and finish. Good enough to compete with the euro's. Quiet ride, quiet doors - a solid clump when you close them.

As for the V8... smooth as butter (and its transmission is the same), not as harsh as the old generation Northstar. Quiet too. New and improved Northstar grunt. :D

Loved it, and yes you could distinguish it from a CTS. Also got a brochure.

Edit: Btw, VVT and a Northstar V8 are a match made in heaven :thumbsup:

I saw my first STS on the road today, and honestly, it doesnt look that much like the CTS on the road.. You know its a caddy, but you dont really think about the STS, i dont think so.. It just sits different...

I test drove a V8 model today and sure would buy it if I was in the market for a sedan. I love my V8 SRX. The Sigma feel is definitely there in the STS, good job Cadillac!!!

Does the 1SE package have stabillitrak standard or as an option?
