CHANGES FOR 2014:
– Sport Blue interior package, Midnight Sapele wood trim package available.
– Paint changes: Phantom Gray Metallic, Mocha Steel Metallic, Red Obsession Tintcoat and Majestic Plum Metallic added.
For 2014, the CTS Coupe gets almost “also-ran” status in the CTS lineup. All eyes are on the new CTS Sedan running on a brand new architecture. However, the CTS Coupe still keeps the old body work as its future is in doubt; the current CTS Coupe could get replaced by the upcoming ATS Coupe. The only changes are some the addition of interior upgrade options and exterior paint changes.
It’s hard to argue with 556 supercharged horsepower, and when it’s fitted into a fine-handling, rear-drive platform with an available slick shifting six-speed stick, you have the definition of ballistic luxury. Alcantara interior trim signals Caddy’s sporting mandate, yet the CTS-V still proves to be comfortable and accommodating, with all the expected luxo-toys.

The CTS Coupe is available in rear-wheel or all-wheel drive, with a 3.6-litre V6 engine mated to a six-speed automatic.
