Cadillac tweaks for the 2012 CTS include 14 additional horsepower from the 3.6-liter V6 and a shiny new grille for all models. Going away: The six-speed manual transmission, now limited strictly to the V-series due to lack of demand.

DISCUSSION

Please cue the "I was going to buy a CTS but not now because it doesn't have a manual" crowd.

Please, get over yourself.

1. Automatics are getting better and are better suited to the way Americans drive.

2. Public transportation doesn't work in large, spread-out cities

3. This isn't Europe. If you want to live like Europeans, go to Europe.

4. You weren't going to buy a CTS anyways, manual or not.
