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.
The 2016 CTS-V is Cadillac’s most formidable offering in its century-long history and is its latest offering for the select class of the best-performing luxury vehicles worldwide.
To be launched later in the summer with 640 hp (477 kW), 630 lb-ft torque (855 Nm), and a top speed of 200 mph, the brand-new CTS-V achieves even more than its antecedents, directing Cadillac's product development and improvement. As the third generation of this much-admired luxury sports sedan that produced the exclusive V-Series ten years ago, this vehicle has reimagined what a Cadillac is for the next generation of aficionados.
Thorough improvements have led to the all-new CTS-V basically being two vehicles in one: a luxury sedan with refined road behaviour and a track-able sports car right from off the line. It also presents a new supercharged 6.2L V-8 engine paired with Cadillac's paddle-shift eight-speed automatic transmission that features launch control and Performance Algorithm Shifting.
Having greater horsepower and torque than the Mercedes-Benz 5.5L biturbo V-8 and the BMW M-series 4.4L TwinPower (twin-turbo) V-8, the new CTS-V can achieve 0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds.
