    lolwtf GM, why isn't it sold like this here!?

    The inteiror is completely covered in hand-stitched leather (like the 2007 SRX) and the wheelbase is stretched a few inches (notice the rear doors and rear seating area) with additional features added in the rear like reclining seats and a console.

    It's probably because they are hiring all those gooks cheap labor to stitch it there and sell it there.

    Americans don't care about interiors or handling, so they dont waste the money in the states

    They stitch the same interior in Lansing, MI for the 2007 SRX here. Hopefully the STS will recieve the same enhancements for our market.
