    2006 Deville

    There has to be some better pics for the 06 Deville than the ones from the spy report web site! Also, The 06 Deville I'm assuming is probably going to be a "restyle" rather than a "redesign".

    They actually detuned the engine a bit to meet emissions, unfortunately. (2005 model)

    Re: 2006 Deville

    Personally, I think it's because Cadillac dosen't want to steal any of the STS's thunder, since it's such an important car to them. Also, they don't want to jeopordize sales of the current Deville, which are falling badly enough as it is. The CTS is poised to outsell the Deville in the coming months, and they seem to be adjusting production accordingly. But who knows? Maybe the re-decorated Deville for 2006 will be a hit. I feel there is a market for large, American-style cars out there, just no large American cars that appeal. Sales of the Lincoln Town Car have also slowed considerably in the last year or so. They won't have a replacement ready for at least two years.
    The "spy shots" we see of upcoming cars with relatively little camoflauge are no mistake on the part of manufacturers. When a new model is imminent, they do some off track drives knowing full well that Jim Dunne and Brenda Priddy are waiting there with their telephoto lenses. This helps create "buzz". Which brings me back to my original point. Cadillac wants the public to focus on the STS right now (and what a nice thing to focus on!).

    I think that Cadillacs new image on their other cars will bring people to look at the new little more conservative DTS.

    Can't wait! this January

    Re: 2006 Deville

    I agree......truthfully I couldnt wait to see the Cadillac portion of the Miami Car Show this past weekend......when I got there both me and my father were discusted.....the STS is horrible in the interior for the price....not very big and the CTS is nothing special either.....then you have the over priced corvette.......its a shame really because after being sooo used to the old style, they just jump the boat completely instead of a gradual change...

    I just cant stop thinking how horrible the STS's interior was........and for that money...ugh....

    Let me guess, you saw it in black? I think it looks much better in cashmere. Black just seems to hide too much nice detail.

    You have to admit there is a lot of nice wood on that dash. I don't think the DTS even has that much. It's a simple layout but only looks good in cashmere imo.

    Germans do have some of the best interiors but still. I do not know how they do it.

    well more money I guess.

    Actually, I wonder if Cadillac will show the '06 Deville at the Detroit show in January? That, or they'll wait until the New York show in April, like they did with the STS. I'm excited to see it.

    Re: 2006 Deville

    I will admit that I like the layout of the STS and CTS interiors, but come on 60g's are alot for any car.....let alone one that has an abundant use of rock hard plastic......yes the wood is nice....but I can get a wood kit for $300 from many places.....

    Heck the new Infiniti M45 is gonna take the class leading position in the mid luxo class............NO QUESTIONS ASKED.........look at the interior....work of art...

    Interesting perspective - altho one I don't happen to share.

    Without being too defensive, my wife and I have an '04 CTS and an '05 STS and are very pleased with them. I agree that there's a boatload (no pun intended) of plastic in these guys, but they're superior where it counts - under the sheet(metal).

    With regard to the M45 - lots of questions exist. Your opinion of it's "class leading position" is, well, just an opinion. My opinion is that I wouldn't drive one of those rice burners if they gave it to me, but that's just MY opinion. And, in answer to what I suspect will be coming, I don't "like" my cars because Caddy says I have to, or because I'm defending my purchase decisions. Lousy cars are lousy cars, and the two I have are pretty damn nice.

    Again, just my opinion!

    Regards,

    John
