    Difference between 09/10/11/12 CTS-V's??

    Hello everyone,

    I am really confused here, someone told me that there are a lot differences between the the 2009 V's and the 2010-2012 V's. I have a feeling that they don't know what they are talking about. I've been looking around a lot and it seems to be that the only difference is literally the back up camera? It seems that 2009 didn't have it and they started offering that in 2010-2012? I looked and looked and I can't spot any changes of exterior body work on the 09's from the 10's and 11's nor did I spot any difference in changes in the interior of the 09 and 2010 2011. So is that literally the only difference? The back up camera??

    Thank you,

    I don't consider that as a significant difference or "a lot" of changes like that person stated. Do you guys think that?

    The double roof is not standard on the 11's. Also, some 09 V's don't have navigation.

    Thank you,
    There is minimal difference in the 09-12's. The only thing that changed was options you could/couldn't get it with. as far as the body, powerplant etc they are all the same.

    09's
    you could get with/without nav
    you could get rainsense wipers

    10's
    nav was standard on all
    back up camara

    I'm sure there is a few other but nothing drastic. Your friend was ill informed.

    2009 interior trim was the standard carbon fiber looking stuff. In 2010, you could get the optional sappelle wood trim.

    in 2011, they changed the programing of the tranny also (for the better). 2012 the two tone interior was dropped in the sedan & they added blind spotters on the side mirror.

    Blind spotters would be nice, it would be nice if they re designed the side mirrors all together....they suck

    The double sunroof is the panoramic roof with the built in sliding/tilt sunroof on sedans. This was never a standard feature. On sedans with sunroofs, they always get the panoramic roof.
    Have I said lately how much I love my sunroof / panoramic sunroof???

    I always have it closed. It's so creaky, I don't know who at Caddy thought those were a good idea. My wife has a 1st Gen SRX where it has one single glass window, that was ok, but ones they went to double windows it made it worse and not worth it anymore IMO.

    The 19x10's don't stick out at all. I got the stock 285 tire on it so it actually looks perfect. Wider tire will start to push it.
