2014 Cadillac CTS Takes a Bow
Around a decade ago, Cadillac became the first American luxury carmaker to start to get its act together. Sure, it was still building bloated land barges, but the GM division finally decided it would break away from the other 'upscale' American carmakers, and make an honest attempt at building a smaller, world-class luxury sedan. The result was the first-generation CTS. Then in 2007, Cadillac rolled out the second generation of the CTS and showed the world just how serious they were about building a competent premium sedan. Well folks, this is the latest result of GM's work, the 2014 Cadillac CTS. GM says the CTS will borrow from the trim layouts of the ATS, but it appears that the smaller Caddy also dictated much of the design. There are great similarities between the two vehicles, and we particularly appreciate the LEDs that continue from the headlights to the end of the lower front fascia. Inside, the CTS appears very much similar to the XTS and ATS, which is a smart move for brand cohesion. Visible is CUE, or the Cadillac User Experience, which is one of the most competent infotainment features available in new cars today.
For engines, were likely to see a 320 horsepower 3.6-liter V6, and the reported twin-turbo V6, capable of 420-horsepower. The latter is important, as it finally gives the CTS a sub-V powerplant capable of competing with the V8-powered Germans. Finally, don't count out a turbocharged four cylinder engine as an option.
We'll be at the live reveal tonight, so hold on to your knickers, its Auto Show time!
