Default New 2006 DTS Brochure now UPDATED WITH PICS!

Finally I got the offical 2006 DTS brochure, looks like a big improvment over the old Deville! I wish I could afford one. **Drool** What do you guys think of it? I like it better than the STS! But I always have liked GM'* FWD boats!

It may be pretty, but it'* still an old, obsolete model underneath.

I got the same brochure and it'* no David Hockney artwork.
For more pics and animated illustrations:

Also, I'd like to that I disagree with the person who stated that DTS is obsolete.
First of all, it isn't obsolete as it introduces many brand-new technologies in luxury and saftey. One that I'd like to mention is the TIGHTEST TOLERANCES in it'* class. Which dramatically increases the structural integrity and quality of the DTS body.

Secondly, there is no other car like DTS. You simply cannot find that kind of luxury, performance, and quality with that kind of price. DTS is one of a kind. Still embracing the compunds of the DeVille and Fleetwood it will last for many years to come.

I do like the DTS, it body alone is worth buying it for. 8 standard airbags the most in its class! MRC is employeed on the DTS Performance Package making it the only car in its class to have that. Adaptive cruise control, Nav. System, power heated and cooled seats, intellabean head lights (xexon)... The list goes on and on including all speed traction control and optional stabli-track and magnasteer II steering system. 291hp and 286lbft. of torque and 3.71:1 axle and 18inch wheels. IT IS STATE OF THE ART! Cars that are FWD and offer that stuff aren't found anywhere else! CARS LIKE IT NONE! Cool car, and for a front driver sounds pretty stable and fun to drive! **Plus a Benz S500 same size and features would cost you 100K!** I'd get two DTS'* for that thank you!

Well I don't think that people understand that. Maybe they think that every car should be a performance-oriented car. Even though DTS has plenty of horsepower, it is NOT about performance. Three words: luxury, safety, and value. Just the fact that the president of the United States uses it for ground transport says it all.

If we wanna talk about rear-wheel drive performance, there are other cars that Cadillac and GM makes. DTS is not one of them.

I also disagree on one thing with you gm4life: S500 is midway. To get the fully equipped S55 AMG will actually take you closer to 200,000.00 dollars. AND DTS is actually a couple of inches longer than *-Class.

The facts speak for themselves.
