The rpo code list for my car has a G80 DIFFERENTIAL, LIMITED SLIP and GU5 AXEL REAR, 3.23 RATIO. Does this mean there are other ratios for the cts or 3.23 is for all?

Pretty sure 3.23 is for the AWD so the fuel economy is closer to the RWD car. The RWD has a shorter rear end but I can't remember the number. Maybe 3.73?

The performance option with rear wheel drive is a 3:73 posit reaction rear end

Would the 3.73 be for both manual and automatic transmissions?

Hi to all
let me throw in, what I have seen in writing.
I got two build sheets, 2011 CTS 3.6DI 6sp-AT Wagon RWD and 2011 CTS 3.6DI 6sp-AT Coupe, RWD
Both had RPO G80 for Limited Slip Positraction.
The Coupe lists RPO GT4 for 3.73 rear ratio
The Wagon lists RPO GU6 for 3.42 rear ratio
