Gosh dang it, Shock

Wouldn’t you rather bid $1,000? You’d be far more likely to win the perfect bid bonus.

Just so you know, there are some bars around this studio. Not just for buying your friends here drinks but for yourselves, too.

*laughter*

$1,002 says DarkShockBro



*ding*

And I say the actual retail price is $1,199.



*bell sequence, 1972 Walking*

DarkShockBro, you have won! It's your turn to play a pricing game. Follow me up these steps, same ones as before. Look what we have spinning on the turntable for you...



Does this game look familiar? It should, but if not we have a prize that should jog your memory. I want the audience to see you going nuts when we show you what it is. Look over at those doors!

George: It's a new Cadillac!



George: A brand new 2019 Cadillac CTS! Performance-enhanced design worthy of the Cadillac name for its remarkable driving experience. This four-wheel drive vehicle comes with a 3.6-Liter V6 engine, eight-speed automatic transmission, rear camera mirror, magnetic ride control and 18" machine-finished wheels, the Cadillac CTS!

Me: And what you must do to win the Cadillac is tell me its exact price. It looks daunting but we all believe in you. After each guess, I will tell you whether the actual retail price is higher or lower if you are incorrect. You have seven guesses total, as indicated by the numbers on the board. I'm actually going to help you out by spotting you the last number in the car's price: it's zero. Be sure every guess ends in the number zero.

With that in mind, what is your first guess, DarkShockBro?

*gets Bullseye I with zero given range*




Seriously, good luck. I think the CTS is one of the lower-end Cadillacs, but that still leaves it anywhere from $50K to $60K. Those options don't look CRAZY expensive so if I were forced to guess it might be closer to the lower $50K range, but I'm nowhere near certain. Best of luck!

What is the trim level of this CTS out of curiosity?  I imagine that would help DarkShockBro a bit.
Also, the image you put up looks like a rendering of a CTS coupe, but only the sedan is in production for 2019.


And PEANUT GALLERY:
If I remember correctly, the base CTS is about $47,000 or $48,000, but the options (and potentially that engine cause I think the base engine is a 2.0L) could push it past that.

Okay.  In that case, I'd suggest somewhere around $50,000 or $51,000 to start, DarkShockBro.

...You know, the original Bullseye had a $500 range.  :P

I trust GSF9001 a lot with car prices, so I'm starting with $50,000.

$50,000 even...



I'll tell you the actual retail price is higher than that.



One down, six to go. Guess again.

...I seriously feel like GSF is really off. If at worse the base of the car is $48,000, I feel that the engine adds at least $5k. On a tour of the Corvette Factory I took a few years back, the difference between engines was about $5,000. In addition, those accessories sound expensive, so I'd guess around $3k-$4k. My next guess after this one would be $57,000ish.
