For 2010, the Cadillac CTS receives a new engine: a fuel-efficient 3.0-litre direct-injected V6, which replaces the previous port-injection 3.6-litre V6 engine. A 3.6-litre direct-injection V6 is still available as an option. The CTS-V receives new trim features. A new Sport Wagon model is also added, which is covered in a separate section.

The CTS uses a 3.0-litre V6 or optional 3.6-litre V6 with six-speed manual transmission that can be optioned to a six-speed automatic. The CTS-V uses a supercharged 6.2-litre V8 with six-speed manual or optional six-speed automatic.

All models base with rear-wheel drive; the V6 models can be optioned with an all-wheel system that normally runs in 40/60 but which automatically transfers up to 100 per cent of the torque to either axle when necessary. The AWD models use the automatic transmission only.

Features on the CTS include 17-inch alloy wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, automatic headlamps, keyless entry, OnStar with Turn-by-Turn Navigation, chrome-tipped exhaust, LED taillights, heated mirrors, variable intermittent wipers, cruise control, driver information centre, tire pressure monitoring system, auto-dimming rearview mirror, leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls, cargo net, garage door opener, express up/down windows, eight-way power heated leather seats with driver’s side memory, fixed rear seat with pass-through, Bluetooth hands-free connectivity, and CD/MP3 stereo with XM satellite radio.

The CTS-V adds 19-inch alloy wheels, adaptive Xenon headlamps, remote starter, theft-deterrent alarm, rear parking assist, Brembo performance brakes, limited-slip rear differential, Magnetic Ride Control sport suspension, Xenon fog lamps, rain-sensing wipers, LED accent lighting, power tilt and telescopic steering wheel, piano black interior finish, leather and suede seats, and CD/DVD/Mp3 stereo with 40-GB hard drive and Bose 5.1 Cabin Surround sound system.
