I'm all with the corporate thing but why do we have to have the same steering wheel as the Cuze? Reminds when they used the Vega steering wheel in the Corvettes .

Because it's more ergonomic probably

I do like the stitching on the dash. I do like the locks on the doors, but I really don't mind the way my 2011 locks are.

I agree with a previous poster that the retro gauges are way cooler.

Finally, I just don't get the love for this new steering wheel. It looks like a minivan steering wheel. The 10 and 11's "camaro" steering wheel just say bad ass. Just my opinion.

It's hard to tell due to the light, but did they change the lower grill?

I do like the stitching on the dash, but I prefer my 2010's steering wheel.

Congratulations! Don't drive it too fast. Oh and if you see a spare Victory Red painted Sharkfin on your way out of MI, drop it off in VA for me.

Whow.. I just bought a Cadillac CTS Coupe and honestly almost ALL the aesthetic changes to the 2012 Camara come from the 2011 CTS.
The buttons, the stitching, the power passenger seat, etc..

You can with us.

Your 2012 CTF looks great.

2010-11 upgraded dash for those that want to add the additional color/leather/and stitching..

Looks great no regrets with my new 2011 but I do LOVE the new dash with the stiching it just breaks up all the open area.

Not enough improvements yet for me to justify getting a 2012. Is the center of the steering wheel a suede? It looks fuzzy in the picture.
