    Finally, the 19" wheels and Recaro seating package on a regular CTS Coupe--could the 19" wheels be offered on the all-wheel-drive, too, as on the regular CTS Sedans? At least they've added the Recaros to the regular CTS Coupe, since they've been available on the regular CTS Sedan (it should have been the other way around!) I'm anxious to see the Opulent Blue color, too! Good refinements, Cadillac! Happy to see the Rainsense wipers back--I love them on my '08 CTS-4!

    The '12 model year will be slim, but it won't be a big deal. Cadillac only needs the vehicles that sell at this point. Trim the fat and clear the lots. The '13 MY will kick off Cadillac's new direction.

    If that was what they were doing... Then the CTS Wagon would have been euthanized within a month or two of its introduction... If they are focusing on cars that sell, well, the Wagon isn't in that category and the coupe is a close second (to last) and the Escalade pickup sells at WTF levels too.

    The older than dirt and already dead DTS outsold ALL of those models.... Face it, something else is going on here.

    6? If Cadillac offered a car with a front bench seat, it would be the laughing stock of the luxury automotive world.

    Lame? That "Lame" line up increased its own sales by some 30% in 2010.

    Name a single 6 passanger premium-luxury sedan that Cadillac needs to compete with.

    To quote someone else... I thought it was all about margin margin margin...

    The DTS is pure profit fleet or otherwise... GM and Cadillac need ever sale right now. And with no immediate replacement, you have to ask WTF are they doing? Why is the XTS not here? It uses engines and a transmission that we already have, it uses a platform that we already know... Whats the delay... I thought the XTS was to be here this fall.

    You have the coupe sales numbers? Well then share... I'm very curious. I hope Cadillac sells enough to keep it going, but not so many that I see them all the time. I like having my unique vehicle.

    Not hard to figure out... So far, in the wild, I have seen ONE CTS coupe and ZERO wagons. Sedans are a dime a dozen... I've seen more STS-V's in the wild then either of these cars. If these are huge sellers then they are all going into time capsules somewhere.

    Unfortunately for me, my own personal preferences fly in the face of what's actually popular. If Cadillac wanted to sell a large 6 passenger wagon with all-wheel drive in yellow or even purple I'd be interested (if I had the money) to buy it.

    The probabilities of this happening of course is like a spec of dust in the Universe.

    short model lineup indeed - ouch

    XTS needs to be ready for this year but I'm sure with the bankruptcy it had to be pushed back... tough pill to swallow. Glad to see STS die (never did update that once competitive full size sedan - sad to see the Chinese get all the refreshings and we never did get much but cosmetic tweaks)

    Guess making the CTS variants Bob pushed for were a solid idea after all - slim pickins otherwise - yikes

    There you have it ladies and gentlemen. If 2002Caddy doesn't see many of a given vehicle, sales of that vehicle are bad.
