Pros

Luxury and style; available six-speed manual transmission; amazing agility for a mid-size luxury sedan.


Model Highlights

The CTS has always been one of critics' favorite Cadillacs due to its nimbleness, almost single-handedly redefining Cadillac's image, and the 2007 continues to hold the line. This mid-size, rear-wheel drive, four-door sedan offers luxury without saddling you with a car larger than you need.

Prices start at $29,925 for the CTS with the 2.8L V6. This engine uses variable valve timing and a dual track intake manifold to make 210 horsepower and 194 ft-lbs of torque. The 3.6L V6 CTS starts at $32,785 and has double overhead camshafts and four-valves-per-cylinder that help it make 255 horsepower and 252 ft-lbs of torque. All CTS models are rear wheel drive, and come standard with a very nice six-speed manual transmission. A five-speed automatic is optional with both V6 engines.

Every CTS offers a pleasing package of luxury and safety items. The full leather seating and wood trim are well executed, and the dual-zone climate control and driver's information center match the competition nicely. All the regular power bells and whistles are included. Front, side and head curtain air bags come standard, as do traction control, and anti-lock brakes.

A variety of packages are available with both engines. The Luxury Package adds a host of convenience items, such as memory features, an auto-dimming mirror, and an alarm. The Sport Package tacks on xenon headlights, performance tires, a revised suspension, and a limited-slip differential.

The Performance Package is only available with the larger V6 engine. It adds larger brakes, a tire pressure monitor, and stiffer suspension to the Sport Package. Limited to the state of California is the California CTS Luxury Package, which includes all of the Luxury Package equipment, as well as a sunroof, a six-disc CD changer with Bose speakers. Most of the items included in each package are available separately.

For those seeking something flashier, there is the CTS-V, which is powered by the same 6.0L V8 that is standard in the Corvette. This two-valve-per-cylinder, single-cam-in-the-block engine is all aluminum and makes 400-horespower with 395 ft-lbs of torque. Thanks to a 2.5-inch diameter dual exhaust system, this Caddy rumbles with all the authority of a Corvette, and can sprint to 60 mph in a reported 4.6-seconds on its way up to a top speed of 163 mph.

A six-speed manual transmission is the only gearbox on offer, and standard StabiliTrak and traction control helps keep the CTS-V pointed in the right direction. Large Brembo brakes, a sunroof, xenon headlights, a tire pressure monitor, a memory package, a six-disc CD changer with Bose speakers, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror are some more of the CTS-V's standard features that are upgrades over the base CTS.

In addition to the enhanced level of interior and safety equipment, there are a number of cues that separate the CTS-V from its lower-horsepower siblings. The most noticeable is the stainless steel wire mesh grilles above and below the bumper. They add a purposeful note, especially with the ducts which cool the front brakes. "V" badges adorn the rear end and front fenders, announcing the new performance brand in the Cadillac family. There is even a bar under the hood that ties the two front suspension towers together for stiffer handling. This is certainly the firmest ride we've ever experienced in a Cadillac, but the CTS-V's tenacious grip on the road more than compensates for the decidedly non-Cadillac ride.


Model News

The only change for the 2007 Cadillac CTS and CTS-V is the addition of Connections and Directions turn-by-turn navigation to On-Star. Otherwise these four-door sedans continue to offer two of the best driving experiences in the mid-size luxury market today.


Value Writeup

While an automatic transmission is available, the 2007 Cadillac CTS continues to be one of only a handful or mid-size luxury sedans to offer a six-speed manual transmission, and a fine one at that. And even though the CTS weighs close to 4,000 pounds, it is remarkably sprightly. The CTS-V, with its thunderous 400-horsepower V8, should appeal to the leadfoot who prefers to dress in wool rather than leather.

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.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. 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. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
