2014 Cadillac CTS

Fixated By Europeans, GM Ensures The Third Time Is A Charm Few things are better for consumers than competition raising the bar. And no campaign seems fiercer than the one currently underway in the midsize sport-sedan segment now that Cadillac has introduced its all-new 2014 CTS to go head-to-head against the benchmark Audi A6, BMW 5 Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class. While the CTS has been on the market for slightly more than a decade, up until this third-generation, Cadillac hasn't truly had the proper high-performance rear-wheel-drive architecture to build a genuine world-class...

    Video: Watch Hennessey-tuned Cadillac CTS-V run over 220 mph on a Texas road
    1351183500

    Texas holds the excellent honor of playing host to the road with the highest speed limit in the US. It seems no coincidence, then, that the speed-hungry minds at Hennessey Performance call the Lone Star State home as well. Hennessey recently turned its attention to the freshly opened toll road SH130 for a quick sprint, and with the help of the Texas ...

    Exclusive: Cadillac sets sights on No. 1

    Don Butler, Cadillac's vice president of marketing, says Cadillac will to return as the No. 1 luxury brand in the United States, some day. "It's my goal that we're the No. 1 luxury brand in the U.S.," Butler said. "I'm not going to say when we hope to achieve that, yet, but there's no reason to aim for anything less." Cadillac certainly has reason to ...

    Spy Shots: 2014 Cadillac CTS caught testing without cladding
    1341876480

    The brand new ATS and XTS may be stealing most of the headlines for Cadillac these days, but we mustn't forget about the more popular CTS – a vehicle that will be entering its third generation when the 2014 model year hits. We've seen spy shots of the new CTS before, but now the heavy cladding has been removed, and despite the eye-jumbling zebra ...

    Video: Watch GM engineer's Cadillac CTS-V wagon blow its airbag during autocross run

    So many things can go wrong before a wedding that a entire movie and reality television genres have been created because of it. An unintentionally exploding side-curtain airbag is probably low on the list, put that's the unlikely snafu that caught out driver Brad Doerr. Doerr was, though, doing an unlikely thing just a couple hours in advance of his ...

    Report: Future Cadillac coupe and wagon models may not be CTS variants
    1334685480

    Cadillac's CTS Coupe and Sport Wagon are two of the most distinctive designs to come out of a mass-market brand in some time, and we're big devotees to both here at Autoblog. Predictably, the two models attract a much smaller slice of the North American market than the four-door sedan, but Cadillac says it remains committed to offering both a two-door and ...

    Spy Shots: Cadillac spotted testing bigger next-gen CTS

    There's an old newspaper adage that dictates: "Dog bites man" is not news. "Man bites dog," now that's news. In other words, the subversion of the usual order of things is what sells papers. And you might say the same about Cadillac. A Caddy getting bigger, by that logic, is hardly news, but a Caddy getting smaller sure is. That's what makes the new ATS ...

    Spy Shots: 2014 Cadillac CTS grows to compete with BMW 5 Series
    1329350460

    The Cadillac CTS has always been a bit of a anomaly in the luxury segment, spanning the space between the entry-level BMW 3 Series/Mercedes-Benz C-Class/Audi A4 and mid-size 5 Series/E-Class/A6. But with the introduction of the 2013 Cadillac ATS, the CTS has room to grow, and based on these first set of spy shots, it's doing just that. Based off a ...

    This crash isn't as odd as the California melee that saw a Saturn end up on an apartment roof, but it's still a little out of the ordinary. Apparently a driver in Wellesley, Mass. missed a curb, and wound up driving up and over a Cadillac CTS that was inside a parking structure. We're a little baffled as to how this all went down, and the Wellesley ...

    Official: 2012 Cadillac CTS gets new V-Series-like Touring option
    1324587540

    Cadillac has just spilled the beans on how it plans to keep its MVP fresh for the 2012 model year. The recipe for the 2012 CTS lineup hinges on a new Touring package (from $2,065) that adds many of the features of the high-performance CTS-V range without adding any actual power. Offered on all three bodystyles, the CTS Touring pack includes such niceties ...

    Cadillac has earned itself a gaggle of five-star ratings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's New Car Assessment Program for the 2012 CTS sedan and wagon and SRX crossover. The CTS earned four stars for the rollover test, but five stars in the frontal and side tests, giving it a score of five stars overall. The SRX returned the same ...

The vehicles mark the 15th and 16th models to nab the top rating under the tougher NHTSA crash test standards enacted for 2011 models. Last year, the 2011 Camry took ...

    General Motors is recalling a small number of 2012 Cadillac CTS models for concerns over the vehicle's braking system. According to a report from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the affected cars could have a power vacuum brake boost pushrod retention nut that may not have been torqued to the proper specification.

    Last year, we sampled Hennessey's 700 horsepower version of the Cadillac CTS-V, and quite frankly, it frightened us. As Jonny Lieberman said at the time, "we simply weren't prepared for the fury of the V700." Of course, adding a little under 150 horsepower to the CTS-V is just getting started for Hennessey. The Texas tuner has just released a preview of ...

    Report: Cadillac's first attempt at CTS Wagon didn't make it
    1311373860

    Since Cadillac first unveiled the CTS as a 2003 model, the entry-level Caddy has come a long way. In fact, it is now a world-class luxury sports sedan. We've also been blessed (yes, blessed) by the arrival of the Cadillac CTS Wagon, which is available in both the enjoyable 3.6-liter flavor and the downright orgasmic V-for-Vendetta edition. The current ...

    Poll: Should Cadillac make the CTS-V go "Supersonic"?
    1310490060

    Last month, following an IM conversation between myself and Autoblog's Test Fleet Manager, Steve Ewing, I tweeted this. I love the Supersonic Blue paint GM offers on the Chevrolet Corvette, you see, and I think it'd look killer on the Cadillac CTS-V. I hadn't given it much thought until yesterday, when I attended a Cadillac event at the Monticello Motor ...

    Cadillac may be having thoughts of jumping back into the convertible game.

Car and Driver reports that the vehicle will slot between the ...

Aesthetic changes are limited to the front grille, where premium finishes have been added to better highlight the combination of frame and mesh. The Wreath & Crest logo has been tweaked (again), with brighter colors ...

IL cites sources from within General Motors who say that models equipped with the 3.6-liter V6 will only be offered with an automatic transmission ...
