    I can see what you mean about all the Cadillacs looking too similar, but to say the '05 STS looks like a CTS??? They are two very different cars. The CTS is sharp-edged and sporty while the STS is round-edged and luxurious. IMO, it is good for a company's line-up to look similar but not exact, witch Cadillac is doing.

    I also feel Bob Lutz should have his privates wacked off for what he did to the STS.....

    I feel the 2005 design is nice, however I as well feel that the headlights are a factor that I do not prefer.

    I was thinking of it, and I think that possibly, they should have incorporated the headlights similar to the current Seville models, as the newer headlights do give it that 'CTS' look.

    Excuse my very crummy photoshop skills, but I tried to combine the 2005 model, with the current headlights, and I think if they DID do that, from the results, it would provide a redesigned model, but still have a little bit of that Seville look to it, and i would REALLY like that.

    Oh well, gotta wait till the model is actually released until I can give my definite opinion.

    For comparison:




    They definately hail from the same company, but clones? No, I don't think so. They are as similar to one another as two cars from any other manufacturer.

    I also would like to know what is so unusual about having a company design theme.
    More examples(this time from Cadillac's competitors):

    I don't see whats wrong with Cadillac's makeing the new STS resemble the CTS yet enough of a differance , to seperate the two. It works for Mercedes, BMW, Volvo, and VW to an extent. Cadillac has a new unique style like it or not, it's catching on.

    I just want to add that the BMW and M-B models posted are a lot more similar than the STS and CTS. In fact, there are many manufacturers with models more similar than the STS and CTS. I don't think that cars are that similar at all.

    Re: STS 2005: Reactions

    I have seen the STS and these pictures do not do it justice. As usual, the initial pics released by GM are not from the best angle and really do not capture the overal effect of the vehicle's styling.

    The rear of the car looks great, very powerful. Side profile looks long, sleek and dignified. The interior is beyond what I ever though GM could do. I can't wait to get the full scoop at New York.

    When you guys see this car, you will believe!!

    Cadillac is back!

    I hope to get a first-hand look sometime soon. The lady at work whose daughter is a manager at the Grand River plant said that her daughter brought a new STS home last weekend. I'm hoping for a drive - or at least a good look.

    I've seen it. It's different looking than the CTS. I don't have pictures to post, but it's a little different than what we've seen. The pictures probably just aren't doing it any justice...

    Re: STS 2005: Reactions

    I think I'm just going to also have to see one in person, I can't really tell from photos. It does look close to the CTS, except the Acura TL type rocker panal side flares along the bottom of the doors. (assuming that is the STS) I would still like to see more distinction between the models, but I guess we have no choice. I personally don't care if Mercedes, etc. has similar-looking clones among the models, I like a little more distinction and variety among a line. Why does Cadillac have to "jump in the river" if everyone else does? I like the styling of the CTS, ON the CTS. I don't really want to see a CTS-looking Deville either.
