But when GM has technology like magnetic ride control and Cadillac is known for offering some level of smoothness with performance, that's a natural expectation.

I find that when looking into a performance oriented vehicle like a V, you have to anticipate a bit more of a harsh ride. They just go hand in hand and if I were to hop in something that has a good amount of power and was meant to be a performance vehicle, I would want it to be harsh and bumpy. It adds to the overall effect and feel of everything that you would imagine a sport tuned car would be.

Valid point but they are Cadillac and do cater to a crowd that has certain expectations. If Cadillac was in a position to make driver focused cars that were minimal but high end in performance, I would find harsher ride to complement the experience but that's not the case here. These are performance cars in tuxedos.

Can't disagree with you on that one. A lot of this, especially suspension feel and the likes, is really going to change between each individuals perception of what it should be and what they want to feel out of it. So there's really no wrong answer here.

That's true to an extent but fact remains with certain brands and products from those brands, defined level of expectations come with it. You wouldn't expect harsh ride from a Mercedes, but in a Nissan... completely different story. GT-R's have harsh ride but people don't complain nearly as much as other sports cars.

Unless you were in a higher end sport variant of Mercedes, then it would definitely be expected.
