Well. It seems Cadillac gets its mandate to find younger buyers means installing features younger buyers actually want. The company just released info on the new "infotainment" system that'll adorn the dash of the 2008 CTS. Caddy showed off the system yesterday in New York. The audio portion sports a 40G Toshiba hard drive, full iPod integration, USB and aux cable connectivity, XM radio and Bose gear. And holy crap: It has a running record feature á la TiVo that records a run-time hour of live audio, with track/artist/time-of-day bookmarks set digitally by XM. Sounds great. The nav system has a retractable screen, 3D views of landmarks and real-time traffic data. But see, Caddy, there's this thing called Bluetooth. You might want to Google it.
