10 yrs at least. That's about how long it took Cadillac to get back on in the game. By the way, I would rather have a CTS Vsport over a Merc. E550, BMW 550 or Audi A6/S6, but that's just me. Can only image what the CTS V is going to be like. Unfortunately, it's will be out of my price point for the time being.
