Regardless if it is can be afforded or not, you will be hard pressed to find someone who doesn’t like the look of the new 2014 Cadillac CTS.
Longer (195.5 inches) and lighter (3,616 lbs) than before, the new Cadillac’s CTS will surely give any European sports sedans a run for the money. Yes we are talking to you Mercedes and BMW.
Start with the new face of the CTS. The two words that have been used to describe it are “bold” and “Aggressive”. For me there should also be “exciting” and “beautiful”.
The stunning grill with the signature Cadillac logo is very commanding; however the headlamps are amazing.
Inside each of these headlamps were a total of 16 fire LEDs lights with 8 LEDs seen on the front bumper which also doubles up as turn indicators thus eliminating the use of additional lights.
Brian Smith, CTS exterior design manager said, “The CTS is the first Cadillac to combine DRL and turn signal under the same lens.” “Giving the HID projectors a dual purpose allowed us to shorten the front headlamps and give the CTS the most dramatic signature lighting of any Cadillac to date.”
As far as performance, the CTS comes with rear drive; however an all-wheel drive is available but not with a turbo V-6.Under the hood you have 2.0L turbo I-4, 3.6L V-6, and 3.6L twin-turbo V-6. The horsepower is of course impressive with 2.0L turbo I-4: 272 at 5500 rpm, 3.6L V-6: 321 at 6800 rpm, and 3.6L twin-turbo V-6: 420 at 5750 rpm.
