Lookin sharp so far.

With the CTS getting larger (always too small for me) and the ATS filling the smaller car spot, I might have been tempted by this. The XTS was too big, and the ATS was too small.

Fantastic and aggressive. Cues taken from the Cadillac Ciel, Converj and Sixteen concepts. Brilliant!!

WOW! Looks really nice! Now the ATS looks sort of sedate if the CTS is going to be that aggressive!

this ... looks awesome. I love what Cadillac is doing.

IMO the ATS is the top of its class right now. Can't wait to see what the 3IS does

Props to GM for staying true to it's roots and keeping to it's distinctive American design, rather than copping out to the europeans.

When there's more headlight ontop of the car instead of on the front of the car, you've got styling problems. Grille looks like a GMC Terrain. Same rear-end styling has been seen since the mid-90's. Not feeling any of this.

I like the matte timber veneer, looks very classy showing the grain of the wood

Of course they are showing clips of the front b/c it seems the rear is super blandtastic. CTS will sell but curious how much in price its going to go up.

The CTS 3.6 TT is actually receiving the Asian A-AW 8-speed used in the Lexus LS and IS-F, that is until GM's in-house 8-speed is ready.
