2014 Cadillac CTS Review
The new 2014 Cadillac CTS has been stunningly redefined, meticulously crafted and critically acclaimed, creating an appearance that will stop you in your tracks and a ride that is as both thrilling as it is sophisticated.
The CTS employs the most sophisticated technology available including alloy suspension components, is the first vehicle with aluminum doors to the Magnetic Ride Control system (MRC), GM’s excellent active damping system, Bose noise canceling system and Cadillac’s legendary CUE system.
The new CTS offers an independent MacPherson-type front suspension, while the rear is supported with an independent five-link setup. Optional Magnetic Ride Control (MRC) featuring GM’s perfected active damping system is standard on vehicles with 18- and 19-inch wheels. The steering is a ZF rack-mounted electric system with variable assist. Four-piston aluminum Brembo brakes are standard in all models. Wheel sizes range from 17- to 19-inches, depending on the power plant and options.
The new CTS will offer three engines, two transmissions and two drivelines that can be mixed and matched to make six powertrain combinations that can handle all types of weather conditions letting you find new roads. Cadillac matches the 3.6L engine with an eight-speed automatic in the RWD model, but the AWD version retains the six-speed automatic like the 2.0-liter. The V6 will hit the 100 km per hour in about six seconds flat.
The interior of the new CTS is equally as stunning, with standard features that included acoustic laminated front side windows, 14-way power adjustable front seats and the Cadillac User Experience (CUE), which comes with an 8-inch touch screen display. With eight different available interior environments, blending soft leather, genuine wood, real aluminum and carbon fiber you are guaranteed to find comfort and style in the new CTS. Also offering a 12.3-inch fully customizable digital gauge cluster allowing you to see what is going on with your engine and prominently display what is important to you.
These are the specs. What is most important and could never be put into words is the feeling being in this car and the exhilaration of driving it.
