New For 2013
There isn’t much news for 2013, as an all-new CTS is due for 2014. Non-V models receive yet another subtle tweak to the grille, adaptive vehicle remote starting is standard, and there are three new exterior colors: glacier blue metallic, summer gold metallic, and silver coast metallic. Glacier blue is also an option on the 2013 CTS-V sedan and coupe, and two-piece brake rotors are now standard.
Overview
Three body styles are available—sedan, coupe, and wagon—and all can be had in regular CTS form or in ludicrous but intoxicating CTS-V trim. There are two V-6 engines available: a 3.0-liter unit in the sedan and wagon and a very capable 3.6-liter V-6 available in all three body styles. The 3.6-liter can be found throughout GM’s vehicle lineup, and that’s not a bad thing—its power delivery is smooth and linear and it returns good fuel economy. For those who have a need for speed, look to the CTS-V. Using a modified version of the 6.2-liter supercharged V-8 in the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1, Brembo brakes, nineteen-inch forged aluminum wheels, and adjustable magnetic dampers, the CTS-V is one of the best cars to come out of Detroit. The tailpipes of the CTS-V—large, chrome, and center-mounted on the V coupe—emit a guttural, growling exhaust note that will let passersby know that this is not your father’s Cadillac. In any form, the CTS is a credible player in the sport luxury market, thanks to its crisp, distinct design and a level of quality, fit, and finish that had long been missing on products from domestic automakers. Supple french-stitched leather, soft LED lighting, and intuitive controls live in harmony in the well-crafted cabin.
