Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects the Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value for all trim levels, but not necessarily all available options.
The Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value represents the amount an auto dealer might ask for a specific vehicle; the actual sale price will vary. A vehicle's popularity, condition, warranty, color and local market conditions are factors involved in determining a final price. The retail value is not a trade-in or private party value.
The Suggested Retail value assumes that the vehicle has been fully reconditioned and has a clean title history. The Suggested Retail value also allows for advertising, sales commissions, insurance and other costs of doing business as a dealer. Most vehicles offered at this price have passed an inspection, and some may carry a warranty. Vehicle mileage is assumed to be normal or below normal.

overall, most advanced features
by RAK from Houston | February 25, 2010
When comparing my 1991 Cadillac to my 2004 Lexus, the caddy has more advanced features. The Cad's ride is quieter, the fuel computer is more advanced in every respect, fuel economy is comparable and often exceeds that of the Lexus, I can open my truck remotely as I can with the L., and when comparing the fuel economy versus the performance, the Cad comes out way ahead. The ergonomics of the caddy dashboard far exceeds that of the Lexus. In prejudging reliability, I suspect the Lexus computers will easily come out ahead. I traded my 75 mercedes for the Caddy after my son had put on a hard 60,000 miles. Other functions of the Caddy that compare favorably, especially when considering 13 years of technology advancements, such as superior functions, e.g. wipers, windshield washer, defroster, interior lighting, control of door locks, power windows, power seat, and cruise control. The cad does not have seat heaters, which I enjoy.
