Distinctive styling; standard luxury features; versatility in the SportWagon; world-class performance in the CTS-V
Cadillac's popular CTS returns for 2010 with some significant changes. While two engines still power the range, the standard unit is now a 270-hp 3.0-liter V6, rather than the 263-hp 3.6-liter of years past. The available direct-injection 3.6-liter V6 makes 304 hp. Each engine can be paired with either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission with driver shift control. Both rear-wheel drive and a performance-oriented all-wheel drive system are available, the latter mated only to the automatic.
The CTS-V offers 556 hp and 551 ft-lb from a supercharged 6.2-liter V8, enough to get the lithe sedan to 60 mph in just 3.9 seconds, according to Cadillac.
New to the CTS mix is the SportWagon, a handsome station wagon that features 58 cubic-feet of cargo space, fold-flat split-folding rear seats, an integrated cargo management system, and a programmable power liftgate.
The CTS range does not lack for amenities, with an interior boasting hand-crafted trim in a variety of available woods, ambient LED lighting, a Bose stereo system, auto up/down windows, and 8-way power driver's seating. Available goodies include navigation, an upgraded Bose system with 300 watts, ten speakers, and a 40-gigabyte hard-drive music system that allows you to record live radio and burn CDs. An available Ultra-View sunroof is large enough to display the world above to both front and rear passengers.
All CTS models benefit from a strut tower brace that improves chassis stiffness, as well as big 12.4-inch disc brakes. Three different suspension tuning levels are available, ranging from comfortable to high-performance. While 17-inch alloy wheels are standard, 18-inchers are available.
Safety isn't overlooked in any aspect of the CTS, and a full range of airbags are standard, including dual stage front airbags, front passenger seat-mounted side-impact airbags, and head curtain side-impact airbags for passengers front and rear. Cadillac's StabiliTrak stability control and all-speed traction control are also standard.
The Cadillac CTS has raised the bar in the luxury sedan segment, with loads of standard features in its premium cabin, as well as spirited performance not just from its competent chassis, but from both of its V6 engines, including an all-new 3.0-liter. With a choice of either manual or automatic transmissions, rear- or all-wheel drive, and now an all-new SportWagon, the CTS transcends classification. And for the leadfoots among the Cadillac faithful, the world-class CTS-V is a 556-hp shot in the arm.
For 2010, Cadillac adds a new Sport Wagon to the lineup. The attractive and versatile wagon is available in either rear- or all-wheel drive and features 58 cubic-feet of cargo space, fold-flat split-folding rear seats, an integrated cargo management system, and a programmable power liftgate. Pricing for the SportWagon begins at $39,830.
Both the SportWagon and the CTS sedan are powered by a new standard base engine--a 270-horsepower 3.0-liter V6 replaces the 263-hp 3.6-liter V6 unit of previous years.
