Well.. Laaah Dee Daah.... :blink:

I'm 6'3" with fairly broad shoulders, and room is definitely a necessity.
CTS is just too small for me. Hopefully STS will rectify that problem (As well as the interior). :lol:

Just one more number I'd like to hear: weight.

You got anything?

Could it be that you inserted the incorect specs for the hip and leg room, maybe the hip size is the actual leg room and the leg room should be the hip room..Just mt 2 cents ;)

Which will be out first?

DHS/DTS? Or STS-V? :D
DHS/DTS is already out. I don't think there are any plans for a V version. The Next V will be the Escalade - then the STS...
