I'm pretty sure I saw a camo'ed CT5-V in Detroit a few months back. It could have been the CT6-V but it looked a bit smaller. I agree that a V8 CT5-V would be amazing!

As of right now unfortunately the CT5-V is gonna come with the 6 cylinder 335HP & 400 LB/FT of Torque lame-o engine. With any luck they'll offer a V8...but at what price?

I'm not an expert. Am I reading this correctly that the CT4-V is smaller than a SS and could have a turbo engine with manny tranny and the CT5-V is the same size as a SS, but will only have a 10AT? So, the SS can still be the last full size sedan with a manny tranny? I'm selfish. I'm hoping I own one of the last in that category.

I still can't get over how stupid they made the headlights with the weird wiggle in the middle that just makes this thing look awkward as heck from any angle in the front. Should have been straight like the Escala Concept's headlights that they incorporated perfectly into the XT-6. Looks muuuuccchhhh better and sportier.

Simply changing that, the idiotic window trim, and the off-centered radio knobs would have made this vehicle a winner in the looks department. Those all seriously look terrible.

I don't think Cadillac has made a great looking production car since the 70's. Concept cars-yes, production cars-no. But that's just me. Average looking at best. Like I've said before, where's Harley Earl when you need him? Just like everything else I guess...they just don't make them like they used to.

CT4 is about the size of a Hyundai G70, and the CT5 a little bigger. CT4 is gonna compete with Mercedes C Class and BMW 3 Series. CT5 will compete with Mercedes E Class and BMW 5 Series....and probably lose badly.

I don't know, the 2014 CTS was very good on the exterior in my opinion for the time. I agree though, their concepts are drop-dead gorgeous most of the time and I wish they incorporated more from them.
