A LS3-powered CTS-V starting at 49,999 and a LSA-powered CTS-V 'plus' (Call it CTS-VR, CTS-V Super...I don't care) for 25k more would have moved more units overall and made far more sense IMO.
YOU ARE SO RIGHT! There should have been a LS3 CTS with available AWD. The DI V6 should have been the base engine and the LS3 should have been the optional engine instead.
