CTS? Ugly? Really? If they had a V8 to fill the middle between the 6 and the V I would be there now- the car looks great and is reasonably priced...

Ditto. They should offer a "German upgrade" package and improve all the small things (mainly interior quality) + an AWD pkg. I'd take 2

It's ugly. It's got that point in the trunk, like some of those Japanese Cars with the smiles on the front and the back - tasteless and tacky.

If I opened up my garage and saw that I paid for that, I'd throw up in my mouth.

Now you guys say the CTS is ugly. When some here were salivating at how they almost chose it over their F10, I said "putting that **** CTS in the same sentence as the F10 is a crime". I got sooooooo flamed. Lol. And now CTS gets so much badmouthing? Where were you when I was being burned alive lol.

What's a Grand Turismo?

I'd readily drive an X6, not that much different than the X5 I drove for three years. I'd also drive the CTS. It is quite sporty outside. The interior turns me off though. GT would be third. Bus 4th, and pushing the Aztek off of a cliff the 5th option.

The Point in the back is called a brake light, which also acts as a integrated spoiler. I think it is a sweet idea and something only exclusive to Cadillacs. All of this is part of Cadillacs Art and Science philosophy. Many auto makers such as Mercedes are copying this design philosophy.

Cadillac's sharp designs are not for everyone, especially if you don't like masculine looking vehicles. That is fine, I am guessing you also hate the sharp edges on Lamborghini's also?

Smart guy here, I am loving my CTS. GM seriously nailed it with the CTS, it is arguably the best current American sedan in the market.

I never really cared much for Cadillacs, but now as I start appreciating them more, it is easily becoming one of my favorite auto brands. I honestly love the design language they are going with all these sharp edges and sharp lines, it really sets them apart from every other car on the market.

X6? If I could fit that in my budget, you wouldn't see me driving an F10, that I can promise you.

The X6 is hot.

I really do love the car, but I find the V6 too slow for my tastes (nothing wrong with it, I'm just used to 400hp sedans). The V would kill me for everyday use, I'd hate to be filling it every other day (time wise, not as much dollar) and dealing with a more racebred suspension for everyday NY use would grow tiring. Now if they shoehorned in the V8 from my Escalade with a little refinement as a middle option I would be there in a millisecond!!
