    Pound for pound, that is the best Cadillac ever built IMO.
    That's a pretty car...I really had wished I could have felt the same about the CT-5.

    Yeah... my wife is a huge fan but she loves all Cadillacs. She really loves this:



    I told her I'd buy her one but she "settled" for the XTS.
    The CT4-V got the thumbs up from her.

    My wife had one but her husband at the time wouldn't let her drive it. Stupid jerk.
    I let her drive her Cadillac as much as she wants because I'm nice.

    If you look at the CT4-V around the vent/vertical LED area through the wrap you can see that element or insert has been made wider on the outside.

My guess is there'd not be nearly enough time between the press release/event unveiling the lesser V's and the race to coordinate getting the vehicles there and properly set up. Plus I doubt that GM can just show up with the vehicles, there needs to be some pre-planning.

I often saw adds for the CTS-V with huge markdowns, so making them cheaper means they won’t have to discount the eff out of it, which kills residuals and does nothing to build or imply desirability.
    While I think the hood vents look cool, I also think they look boy-racer. I like the more serious look of not having them, looks more like a rich, well to do man's car vs. the son of a rich, well to do man's car.

    I'd say at best they pulled forward the availability of models with supercruise, but otherwise they always planned for it to be an option.

Despite various people pointing out that this was a new direction.. A new way of presenting and implementing VSERIES.. some people were just stuck again.. on naming and a supposed free-burn of 15 years of performance.. Never letting up enough to realize, even when told.. even when quotes were left for easy reading and dissemination.. the naysaying persisted. Shaking my damn head. I hope that not only does the CT5 spawn a 500HP version and then a 700HP (cause let's face it.. They are tuning galore these days ) but the recently introduced 355hp V comes out and beats the crap out of competitors with a hundred more HP. Just to spite the GMI Hater Peanut Gallery
    People judge books buy their covers and believe what fits their views, even if proof against their views are in plain sight.

    HAHAHAHAHAAHA You're very funny...riddle me this, if they've been doing development on SuperCruise on the XT6 the whole time, why didn't the "Top Spec" model they unveiled at least have a mock up of the SC hardware in it? It's not like it had to be fully operational or anything, its just a show car. Why didn't it have the SC steering wheel?

    I don’t think Cadillac necessarily showed these today to counter the negative response to Thursday’s reveal, they just did their usual mixed message launch.

    Remember the CT5 being shown a month or so before the full reveal, and how then they did a slow strip tease of it on Instagram like we didn’t see the full undisguised pictures. Inept, dumb, bad planning or whatever you want to call it.

    Remember those initial CT5 pictures, and how they showed a gray Sport in a front 3/4 shot, and the Saturn Ion vibe it was giving off. How did that S*** Storm inducing picture get approved for release? Inept, dumb, bad planning, that’s how.

    Anyhow, at least these latest pictures show some promise. I do wonder though, (with the focus on ROI) if the top CT5-V will be ‘Godzilla: King of the Monsters’ Beastly, or if they’ll dial it back some closer to the GEICO GEKKO?

    Re: Cadillac Teases Future of V-Series Performance Legacy

    So what possibility is there that the ATS coupe gets a re-skin and new interior to become the New CT4 coupe. Everything forward of the windshield would be identical, the interior would need specific door trim, but beyond that, the dash/console/front seats would probably be shared.

    The rear of the car would share some sedan elements like the tail lights and bumpers, so the investment in this car would likely be less than 30% (plucked that percentage from my butt!) over a ‘from the ground up’ design.
