NEW FOR 2014:
– Paint changes: Phantom Grey 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 Sport Wagon still keeps the old body work as its future is in doubt; the current CTS Sport Wagon could get axed from the line-up entirely. The only change is the addition of exterior paint options.
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.
CTS is also available as a sedan or coupe (covered in a separate entries). The CTS Sport Wagon is available in rear-wheel or all-wheel drive, with a 3.0-litre or 3.6-litre V6 engine mated to a six-speed automatic. The CTS-V is equipped with a supercharged 6.2-litre V8 and six-speed manual or optional six-speed automatic transmission.
