Article by Christian Andrei, on June 13, 2013

General Motors announced today that the all-new 2014 Cadillac CTS will carry a price tag of $46,025, including $925 destination. Still, this is for the 2014 CTS standard model. The new CTS will be available in three collections of option packages – Luxury, Performance and Premium- each offered with either the 2.0T turbocharged four cylinder or the bigger 3.6-liter naturally aspirated V6 engine in either rear- or all-wheel drive.

As expected, the 2.0-liter turbocharged engine found on the 2014 CTS delivers 272 horsepower and zooms from zero to 60 mph in 6.1 seconds, which is 1.5 seconds faster than the outgoing model. As standard, the car will receive 17-inch Brembi brakes with ferritic-nitro carburizing, or FNC, anti-corrosion rotors. Magnetic Ride Control is now standard on base models with 18-inch wheels.

Moreover, the CTS offers three driving modes: for touring, ice and snow, or sport driving. The bigger 3.6-liter V6 engine delivers 420 hp and gets a “track” drive mode with specific Magnetic Ride Control calibration and enhanced throttle progression for greater track performance. The sportier Vsport model comws with the all-new Twin Turbo V6 and starts at $59,995, including $925 destination.

Furthermore, the CTS Vsport comes with an electronic limited slip differential and eight-speed automatic transmission in RWD only. All CTS models feature the CUE, Cadillac’s breakthrough system for connectivity and control featuring an eight-inch fully reconfigurable touch screen. The CTS will also come with an 11-spearker Bose premium audio system with HD radio capability.

All-New CTS Sedan Ascends into Midsize Luxury Segment

When the all-new 2014 Cadillac CTS sedan arrives in dealerships this fall, it will offer more interior space, power and technology with more than 20 new standard features compared with the current model.

Inside and out, the third-generation CTS sedan grows, ascending into the heart of the midsize luxury market, with an all-new design that is longer, lower and leaner. The new CTS is five inches longer, expanding interior space, but also 244 pounds lighter than the previous model. It is expected to be the lightest car in its segment.

“CTS has always been Cadillac’s centerpiece, and as our brand expands and elevates the car properly grows to its true place” said David Leone, CTS executive chief engineer. “With last year’s addition of the award-winning ATS compact luxury sedan, CTS will directly challenge the luxury midsize competition with uncompromised performance, luxury and technology.”

The 2014 CTS standard model will start at $46,025, including $925 destination. Three Collections of option packages – Luxury, Performance and Premium – will be offered with either the 2.0T turbocharged four cylinder or 3.6L naturally aspirated V6 engine in either rear- or all-wheel drive.

CTS will be offered with a choice of three powertrains, including a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder engine that puts out 272 horsepower and goes from zero to 60 mph in 6.1 seconds – 1.5 seconds faster than the outgoing model. Standard front Brembo brakes with ferritic-nitro carburizing, or FNC, anti-corrosion rotors give CTS braking performance that Cadillac expects to be best in the segment. Magnetic Ride Control, the world’s fastest-reacting suspension and a hallmark of V-Series models, is now standard on base models with 18-inch wheels.

Selectable drive modes will allow drivers to adjust the vehicle’s performance dynamics for touring, ice and snow, or sport driving. The CTS Vsport model features the new Cadillac Twin-Turbo 3.6L V6 engine with an SAE-certified 420 horsepower and a “track” drive mode with specific Magnetic Ride Control calibration and enhanced throttle progression for greater track performance.

The Vsport model contains the highest-performing components, led by the all-new Twin Turbo V6. The CTS Vsport model starts at $59,995, including $925 destination, and comes equipped with an electronic limited slip differential and eight-speed automatic transmission in RWD only.

Inside, all CTS models are equipped with CUE, Cadillac’s breakthrough system for connectivity and control featuring an eight-inch fully reconfigurable touch screen. CUE brings tablet-like functionality into the CTS with functions such as haptic feedback to confirm selections, proximity sensing to reveal hidden icons, gesture recognition and capacitive touch. A 5.7-inch display in the instrument cluster allows the driver to control radio, phone and navigation functions through steering wheel controls without having to take his eyes off the road.

CTS will come with an 11-speaker Bose premium audio system with HD radio capability. Users will have several options for streaming portable media devices with three USB ports and one auxiliary and SD card port.
