Cadillac has announced the 2015 CTS will become the next model to feature the company's wreathless crest.

The company declined to release pictures but confirmed the car will feature a revised grille and the controversial crest that debuted on the 2015 ATS Coupe. Mainstream models will also be equipped with active grille shutters and a Galvano chrome grille, while VSport variants will eschew the grille shutters and adopt a black chrome grille. The 2015 CTS will also be offered in two new colors: Crystal White Tricoat and Dark Adriatic Blue Metallic.

Interior changes are relatively limited but include revised color and trim combinations as well as OnStar 4G LTE with a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot. The CUE infotainment system also gains a Text Message Alerts function which can can read test messages aloud and send a predetermined reply. The infotainment system also boasts a new Teen Driver function which enables owners to set a radio volume limit and a maximum speed limit. The system also creates a "report card" that "records mileage, wide-open throttle events, ABS events, maximum speed and other data." Last but not least, there's a newly optional Cadillac DockSpot wireless inductive charging system for smartphones.

  • A turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 272 bhp (203 kW) and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm) of torque
  • A naturally-aspirated 3.6-liter V6 with 321 bhp (239 kW) and 275 lb-ft (373 Nm) of torque
