American cars are getting better!
Consumer Reports has named it's #1 sedan. After roughly 20 years of Hondas and Toyotas taking the top spot, this year it's a domestic. And it's a Chevy!

I actually saw that on my CNN app on my phone. I was really surprised, but it is a sharp looking car.Objects in mirror are losing

It is indeed a great looking car. As I have mentioned before, I will be buying a new car around tax refund time next year. I briefly considered a new Impala and the Consumer Reports thumbs-up certainly made a great case for it. However, it just doesn't have the engine/drive train options I am looking for. I want a manula, RWD V-8. The Impala has either a 2.5L 4-cyl (on a full-sized sedan, wtf?) or a 3.6L V-6 and FWD. Blah. Still nice to see that American cars are improving, though.

I haven't seen anything official but what I have seen suggests it will be in the low to mid 40s which is half the price of a new CTS-V.
I am really looking at a pre-owned CTS-V for now. I know I can't afford a new one but there are some decently priced pre-owns out there.

My big thing about the 2013 CTS-V is that chicken wire looking upper and lower grill. IMO it looks horrible. Hopefully the 2014 CTS-V will have a much nicer looking front end.

I thought CTS-Vs were in the 80s?
Also, I love the mesh grilles so I'm good there.
