2014 Cadillac CTS sedan isn’t messing around

Apr 9, 2013

The 2014 Cadillac CTS sedan has already achieved recognition as an impressive performing car that is made for not only every day drivers, but also sports car enthusiasts. This new CTS will be sure to impress with its Twin-Turbo V6 eight-speed automatic transmission with 420 hp and 430 pound-feet of torque.

But the performance doesn’t stop there; a pair of small turbo chargers also help to give the CTS an extra boost when the driver demands it. Accelerating from 0-60 of 4.6 seconds will get you were you need to go quick with 90 percent of the peak torque becoming available from 2,500rpm to 5,500rpm.

Also available on the CTS is a naturally aspirated 3.6 liter V6 with 321 hp matted with an eight-speed automatic in rear-wheel drive models, while the all-wheel drive models come with a six-speed automatic trans. But the engine options don’t stop there; a 2.0 liter turbocharged powerplant with 272 hp will be available with a six-speed automatic.

If your new CTS comes with the new paddle-shift eight-speed automatic transmission, you will be looking at 1.5 percent better fuel economy compared to the six-speed trans options.

The new CTS has an incredible weight balance of almost 50/50, which adds to its higher performance and track capabilities. This is achieved by incorporating aluminum parts with the suspension, while the rear suspension is mostly steel. Brembo brakes come standard in the CTS, which are something you might need, speeding around town.

There are several suspension and driver control highlights including:

Multi-link MacPherson strut suspension with a double-pivot design
Five-link independent rear suspension
Available all-wheel-drive
Premium electric, variable-assist power steering gear from ZF Steering Systems
Available Magnetic Ride Control real-time damping system
Choice of 17, 18, 19-inch aluminum wheels.

The 2014 Cadillac CTS, with its good looks and serious performance, will have drivers flocking to the nearest dealer to buy one of these driving machines. We only wish it had the option of a manual transmission.
