I agree with you (shocking). Hellcat is a lot of car for $65k and no one would ever criticize that purchase. I happen to like the Cadillac more than the Dodge, just my opinion. Although similar in...

I guess the MKZ just looks more spacious to me. But you're right the MKS would be more XTS sized. The MKZ looks sharp and is priced right. I'm still not sold on the front end but from every other...

The MKZ would compete with the XTS no? Front-wheel drive people haulers cross-shopped with Lexus ES, and LaCrosse. Lincoln doesn't offer luxury sport sedans.

Except that it is not. Edmunds doesn't set the MSRP, Cadillac does. The MSRP for the 2014 sedan according to Cadillac is $67k. Started at $59k in 2009 and crept up a little every year. Truecar...

First off, I don't know where you came up with this $72k number. There was no 2015 V sedan. The 2014 V sedan MSRP is $67k. Car&Driver doesn't pay for my cars, do they pay for yours? newmoon said...

I have no issue with the shatpack. By far the best bang for the buck in the Dodge line-up. But to imply that a R/T shatpack is going to run down a 515rwhp V2 is absurd. Even newmoon knows it.

Both times STILL slower than stock V's. Same day head to head runs the shatpack just can't keep up. 12.28 isn't 11's now is it? That Challenger trapped 113mph, that's a FAR cry from 119mph. Don't...

Yeah, yeah and CTS-V are running in the 11's bone stock per V forums. Shatpack isn't going to touch a V. Wishful thinking though.
