Introduced in 2003, the Cadillac CTS has been a popular sedan in the American luxury car brand. Starting in 2010, the CTS line-up was also defined by a wagon and later by a two coupe. For 2010, the Cadillac CTS Sedan was offered with an all-new base engine. A direct-injection 3.0-liter V-6 powerplant propelled the base Cadillac CTS Sedan models with a 270 horsepower. Featuring formidable performance, the new, smaller engine permitted improved fuel savings. A 3.6-liter V-6 engine generating 304 horsepower continued to be available for CTS Sedan customers.
Transmission choices consist of a six-speed manual as well as smooth shifting six-speed automatic gearbox. A rear-wheel and all-wheel drive model could be paired with the V-6 power of the luxury sedan. Several enhancements were made to the Cadillac CTS Sedan line-up for 2012. Mechanically, the 2012 CTS Sedan received a retooled 3.6-liter engine delivering the improved performance of 318 horsepower. Aesthetically, the 2012 version of the Cadillac sedan added the availability of the Touring Package. Through the CTS Sedan Touring Package offered on Luxury and Premium trim levels of the car, chrome accented door handles, metal pedals as well as dark Sapele wood trim was added to the four-door. All 2012 Cadillac CTS Sedans added Bluetooth connectivity as standard equipment.
For 2014, dazzling new Cadillac CTS Sedan was introduced as a bolder and longer version of the mid-sized premium four-door vehicle. The 2014 base engine became a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine producing 272 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. A new twin-turbocharged 3.6-liter V-6 engine became the peak performance powerplant of the 2014 Cadillac CTS as part of a Vsport model. The 2014 CTS Vsport was equipped with an eight-speed automatic transmission and an electronic limited-slip differential.
In its third-generation, the CTS is a competing brand to other luxury cars like the E-Class by Mercedes or the 5 Series by BMW. A serene roofline and nameplate luxury styling make this roadster a highly desirable addition to the garage.
