    "THESE ARE supposed to have 400 hp. "




    The STS will most likely carry the same engines as the SRX that shares its platform and dimensions, which means base v-6 and optional northstar. The 400hp could come in the form of the V-series

    A V6 Seville. I think it might actually be pretty popular, since its the "import fighter" and most imports have base V6s. Better gas mileage and some people like the smoother sound instead of a rumble. I think if they're gonna do that, make a new inline 6. Then you might start seeing sales.

    Re: 2005 Cadillac STS

    I agree, most people here cringe when they hear cadillac and v-6 in the same sentence. But if its gonna compete with E320 and 530i, then a 6 is not a bad choice, especially for the city dwellers.

    I believe Car and Driver said, "As the Art & Science design matures, the 2005 STS will have softer lines."

    So it might not have the shockingly slammed creases as the CTS, but will have some of the character.

    My guess...

    After reading Jesda's post I decided to take a CTS and change it around, soften it out, and eventually ended up with this which is my guess what the new STS will look like





    What do you all think?

    A little bit....

    It also looks a bit like the CTS

    It is clear that Cadillac is using the same look for every vehicle in their lineup...so I took a CTS put it in photoshop, and cut out sections, distorted them and reattached them to the car.

    The platform for the STS is the same as the CTS which is why I used the CTS as a base. Extended the overhangs, rounded it out just a little, put on some larger wheels (increased the size of wheel wells too) and there you have it.

    Like I said, it's my "guess".

    Here's the two together.

    Needs better rims, but out of all the sts pictures here, that is by far the best.
