Pros

Striking design in coupe, sedan, and wagon versions, top-level luxury, muscle car performance from available CTS-V.


Model News

For 2011, Cadillac's best-selling CTS line gains a new coupe version, joining the existing 4-door sedan and wagon. Styled much like the familiar sedan, the new coupe features a steeper rake to the windshield and unique lines, giving it a bold and aggressive stance. Sedans and wagons are again available with the 3.0L 270-hp V6 or the 3.6L 304-hp V6, while the new coupe gets the 3.6. The CTS-V sedan returns and adds the coupe variant as well. No major changes have been made to the lineup, but Black Ice Metallic and Evolution Green Metallic are now available as extra-cost colors, and new Ebony seats with Saffron sueded fabric inserts are available on CTS-V coupe only. Several new wheel options are also available.


Value Writeup

With its edgy styling, sport-tuned chassis, and luxurious interior appointments, the Cadillac CTS is well-placed to take on mid-size sport sedans from Japan and Europe. And with available all-wheel drive, several body and trim configurations, and its high-performance CTS-V option, it's a strong competitor at several price points.


Model Highlights

The 2011 Cadillac CTS is offered in three body styles: sedan, sport wagon, and coupe. For the sedan and wagon, two trim levels are available, starting with the base 3.0, which features a 3.0L 270-hp V6 and a standard 6-speed manual or optional 6-speed automatic transmission. The 3.6 is powered by a 3.6-L 304-hp V6 and a standard 6-speed automatic, although the 6-speed manual is available as a credit option. The coupe gets the 3.6, and all three body styles can be ordered with either rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive.

All three versions share a chassis that was developed on Germany's Nurburgring test track, giving it both good handing and responsiveness while remaining comfortable enough for daily road use--although a bit stiff for some tastes. GM's StabiliTrak electronic stability control is standard across the line.

The biggest news for 2011 is the addition of the CTS coupe, which features similar angular styling to the wagon and sedan, but with a look all its own which includes a steeply raked windshield, longer doors, and a clean quarter panel design. The body is nearly two inches lower and two inches shorter than the sedan, and the suspension has been tuned to further improve handling.

All CTS models come well-equipped. The 3.0L features 17-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlamps, dual-zone automatic climate control, cruise control, an 8-way power-adjustable seat, a tilt and telescopic steering column, premium vinyl seats, an auto-dimming rearview mirror and an 8-speaker sound system as standard. 3.0 Luxury trim adds a power passenger's seat, driver's memory functions, heated seats, leather upholstery, a wood and leather steering wheel and Bluetooth connectiblility. 3.0 Performance adds 18-inch wheels, high-performance brakes, upgraded sport-tuned suspension, a limited-slip rear differential and HID headlamps. 3.6 Performance features the larger and more-powerful V6, and in addition to the items offered on the 3.0 Performance, adds a 10-speaker stereo with hard-drive based music storage and USB/iPod connections. A Luxury Level Two package is also available on top of the Performance trims, adding rear parking sensors, heated and cooled front seats, folding rear seat, keyless entry and remote start. Finally, 3.6 Premium adds a panoramic sunroof, hard-drive based navigation and a back-up camera.

The performance-oriented CTS-V again comes with an impressive 556-horse supercharged 6.2L V8 and the choice of either a 6-speed automatic or manual transmission. For 2011, the CTS-V is available in either sedan or coupe versions. GM's Magnetic Ride Control suspension is standard, which gives the driver two separate firmness modes. In addition to that, GM's Performance Traction Management helps wrestle all the V's power to the ground without limiting spirited performance driving. Special bold exterior styling touches complete the package, as well as unique interior appointments that include Recaro seats with 14-way adjustments and special suede-like leather wraps on the steering wheel and shift knob. A GPS navigation system is standard.

Mfg's Report Date
JUN 19, 2014

Potential Number of Units Affected
16,932

Summary
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2011 Cadillac CTS vehicles manufactured October 18, 2010, to June 2, 2011. In the affected vehicles, vibrations from the drive shaft may cause the vehicle's roll over sensor to command the roof rail air bags to deploy.

Consequence
If the roof rail air bags deploy unexpectedly, there is an increased risk of crash and injury to the occupants.

GM will notify owners, and dealers will replace the rear drive shaft assembly, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Cadillac customer service at 1-800-458-8006. GM's number for this recall is 14233.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Mfg's Report Date
JUL 02, 2014

Potential Number of Units Affected
554,328

Summary
This defect can affect the safe operation of the airbag system. Until this recall is performed, customers should remove all items from their key rings, leaving only the ignition key. The key fob (if applicable), should also be removed from the key ring. General Motors LLC (GM) notified the agency on July 2, 2014 that they are recalling 554,328 model year 2003-2014 Cadillac CTS vehicles manufactured August 16, 2001, to April 28, 2014, and 2004-2006 Cadillac SRX vehicles manufactured March 20, 2003, to August 11, 2006. In these models, the weight on the key ring and/or road conditions or some other jarring event may cause the ignition switch to move out of the run position, turning off the engine.

Consequence
If the key is not in the run position, the air bags may not deploy if the vehicle is involved in a crash, increasing the risk of injury.

GM will notify owners, and dealers will provide two replacement key rings, and vehicles with slotted keys will receive key inserts, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Cadillac customer service at 1-800-458-8006. GM's number for this recall is 14172.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Frontal crash test results are valid for 2011 model year vehicles manufactured before July 2, 2010.

Male/Female Dummy Note
Male: Average sized adult male dummy in 35-MPH crash into fixed barrier. Rating is evaluation of injury to head, neck, chest, legs. Female: Small-sized adult female dummy in 35-mph crash into fixed barrier. Rating is evaluation of injury to head, neck, chest, legs.

Rollover Rating

Rollover Rating Dynamic Test Result
No Tip

Risk of Rollover

Rollover Note
Dynamic (moving) test results (Tip or No Tip) and measured rollover-related properties determine vehicle's risk of rollover in single vehicle crash and its rollover rating. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is.
