  11. Why does Cadillac hate V8 engines?

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    The CTS, especially the new coupe, is a knockout and if it had the LS3 or L99 V8 available, it would dominate the 6-cylinder competition (335, G37, Lexus etc). But for some reason Cadillac refuses to give us the V8 except for souped-up versions in the very costly V-series. It doesn't make any...

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    I sat in (but did not drive) a V coupe today while my 2010 V sedan got some minor service at the dealer. I previously owned a 2005 Z-51 Corvette, traded it for a 2008 Z-51 Corvette, and finally traded the 2008 vette for a 2010 V. All with manual transmissions. I liked the 2005 vette but it had...

    Cadillac DeVille 1985 to 2005 including:1985-1992
    Hello all... figured that until I can get the 01 DTS into the shop, I'd at least try to fill up or add trans fluid to try to decrease the symptoms I've been having... symptoms: a noticeable 'clunk' when coming up to red light at the point where the car stops; a lack once and awhile when...

I know it's a whole new body and platform, but it's the same underlying principle below....the full size DeVille with all the sporty accoutrements. Does the DTS drive a lot tighter than the Concours? Does...
