We've seen pictures of a refreshed model, and it's pathetic. They stuck the G8's grille on, changed the foglamps, and called it a day. The radio's still the same as the one on my '07 Malibu when every other GM vehicle transitioned over to the new GM switchgear in 2008. From what we've heard, the G6 will stay the way it is without a major redesign until 2012, giving it a massive lifespan of 8 years since introduction.

Well yesterday I had a chance to stop by the dealer and they had a couple of CTS's on the lot. Was talking to them and asked if I could just check the engine out and they took me out and let me start it up. Didn't take it out for a drive but the engine revved real smoothly. Window sticker showed 26MPG on the highway. Looking forward to seeing this thing in the Camaro.

Hey, you want to lay the fate of the world on the kid's Camaro? That's cool.

I bought a car, turned out to be an alien robot. Who knew?

I would say the G8 V6 model would offer a decent comparison. I think the rear suspension might be a tad different, but if you're just looking for a ride feel comparison, it'd be the one to check out. The CTS will show you the quality of the V6 the Camaro will have. But it uses a control arm suspension.
