It’s an absolute shame that manual gearboxes are far less mainstream than they used to be. As they get more and more exclusive, it seems like manuals will be obsolete before we know it. And even though Cadillac has been doing a great job reinventing its image with great cars such as the most recent CTS, they’ll no longer be offering a manual for the 2012 3.6L V6 CTS.
For the upcoming model year, the Premium and Performance models are only available with a six-speed auto-tragic – I mean, transmission. Of course, all versions of the top of the line CTS-V will still be offered with a manual but as it is rumored, the manual was ditched just because they weren’t selling.

Only 2011 models will still be available with a manual so if you’re looking to get a CTS with a 3.6L V6 and a six-speed manual, better scoop yours up soon! Let’s hope that they’ll bring it back to keep the enthusiasts interested.
