    Real-World 2017 Cadillac CTS Pics

    I stopped by one of the local dealers today. They had a 2017 CTS Luxury. The grille change isn't very dramatic. However, I'm not sure I care for the changes in the back. It's the little black plastic extending from the sides of the bumper cover that annoys me.

    What do you guys think?

    It looks better the more I see it.

    I met a guy with a new CT6 and had a chat, checked out the latest CUE. That orange interior looks really nice in person.

    I honestly don't even notice the changes to the front.

    I however am not a fan of the revised rear fascia.

    Squared-off, presumably for aero? (like my Volt rear bumper)

    I guess the question is, unless someone actually knows about it and looks for it, is anybody going to notice?

    I probably wouldn't notice if I didn't know there were changes.... I am seeing more and more on the road, saw 3 on Friday. Great looking car in motion.

    What is the difference on the front, 4 bars vs. 3 bars on the grille?

    Flubbed the rear, we'll never get the vertically aligned exhausts/lights we deserve after waiting over a decade for them. Front looks better.

    Car looks the same.

    Art & yada-yada?

    the pix of the those 2 whateversedans from the front look good...

    ...guess 3 platforms and a decade+ & (by my count) $30 Billion have produced 1/3rd of good perception

    Without looking at a picture I can't tell you, which I assume that is your point .

    I really hate the damn fake exhaust tips on the bumpers. Looks so tacky. Just terrible.

    I hate the rear redesigned exhaust tips.. The Front is still the best looking sedan out there. I hate it when dealers stick their names on a car like they made it. Totally stupid.

    Some are better than others, the ones on our Fusion Titanium were very good, I didn't even realize they were what they were for a while, but I have saw some others lately that you can easily see (what looks like) 1 1/4" exhaust-pipe just bouncing around in the middle of the bright bumper trim.

    The grille change is all but invisible.

    I do like the rear facia myself. I also like the black fairings running along the bottom. It re-enforces the vertical exhaust outlet.

    Bars are textured, too. It's a more substantive look. XT5 grille would have been better.
