I’m only guessing that 2010 will be the model change year. That’s
when I'll be ready to dump my 08 E-350 with its antiquated electronics.
However .. I may stand alone, but I HOPE that the new DTS won’t
just be a bigger copy of the CTS. I absolutely HATE the stubby,
chopped-off rear end of the CTS! (Am I the ONLY one who sees it
I’m sure it will have GREAT electronics, tho, as my 06 DTS even had
really nice electronics. (Certainly compared to 08 Mercedes Benz.)
Ask yourself: how would YOU feel if you traded your 06 for an 08
and went BACK 10 years in electronics? What a dummy I was.
Even tho we’re talking about 2 years away, I’m dying to see pics of
the NEW DTS, or whatever it’ll be called.
I understand your anticipation. I have the same feeling.
My '06 will probably have close to 100,000 miles by then and it will be time to trade.
Like you, I also hope they don't have the chopped off rear end. I think the electronics are pretty good in the '06 DTS. Could be better, but all in all, from what I have seen on other cars, they are pretty darn good.
The DTS and STS are both being replaced by a single model. I don't believe either one of them will be called STS, DTS, Seville or DeVille. It'll most likely be an all-new model.. There's also a possibility of an even larger model some time afterwards.
