Overview of the Cadillac CTS

Learn about the Cadillac CTS

Summary

A luxurious high-performance sedan packed with technology, the Cadillac CTS combines brains and beauty. A massive 6.2 L V8 engine on later models means quick acceleration and performance. A rich array of standard features—such as safety technology, premium brakes and suspension and an interactive touchscreen—makes for comfort and convenience.

Driving the CTS is a smooth experience with its eight-speed customizable transmission that elegantly switches gears and pairs with magnetic ride control. Older Cadillac CTS models include coupe (fixed roof, two doors) and wagon bodies, providing a range of vehicle sizes.

Safety

From its first release in the 2003 model year, the Cadillac CTS has prioritized safety in its design. The earliest models up to 2007 included standard anti-lock brakes to avoid skidding and side-curtain airbags. Stability controls—which also help to reduce the risk of skidding—overhead airbags, front impact airbags and ignition disabling devices to prevent theft were available on many trim packages. 

Newer models of the CTS from about 2016 also offer:

  • Blind spot monitoring to see possible hazards before you change lanes
  • Lane keeping assist to notify you if you drift
  • Traction control for better grip in poor conditions
  • Cross-traffic alert to assist in reversing with limited visibility

Interior

The cabin of the Cadillac CTS is designed with an eye for luxury and comfort. Many CTS models offer wood and leather trims, and with front seating that has twenty different adjustment points, both coziness and style can be customized to your taste. The interior of the CTS is frequently described as well built with quality materials—even in standard trims. Earlier models of the CTS, though still luxe, do not reach the same design or quality-finish level as current models.

Technology

The Cadillac CTS positions itself as a technology-advanced performance vehicle, including a dizzying array of high-tech options, even in older models. 

For infotainment, the Cadillac User Experience (CUE) allows for:

  • Connectivity to apps, maps, music and weather
  • A personalized experience through driver profiles
  • Auto-updates to the software

The CUE system has been described by some users as sluggish and challenging to use, while others find the placement of the touchscreen distracting. In earlier CTS models, higher-end features such as a premium Bose audio system, navigation systems or a sunroof were available as extras.

Space

While the front cabin area is well appointed and comfortable, the cargo space is surprisingly small for a sedan, offering less than 14 cubic feet on many models. With rear split-folding seats, there is the option for larger items to spill over into the backseat. The earliest models of the Cadillac CTS, from the early 2000s, have the roomiest interiors, with enough space to comfortably seat five adults. 

Comfort

Sport suspension packages were available in select earlier CTS models, which improved overall handling but at the expense of a smoother ride. Overall, the CTS is known for its precision handling and for being one of the luxury cars with good acceleration, thanks to a V-Sport engine. Beyond that acceleration perk, many CTSs come with features such as a rearview camera and heated seats.

Frequently asked questions about the Cadillac CTS

The CTS in Cadillac CTS stands for Catera Touring Sedan, with the Cadillac CTS being a design successor to the Catera sedan produced in the late 1990s.

None of the Cadillac CTS models have the Northstar engine. Different generations and trim packages have V6 and V8 engines geared towards performance.

The fastest Cadillac CTS is CTS-V performance model, which features a supercharged V8 engine capable of reaching 320 km per hour.

Early models of the Cadillac CTS were built on a Sigma rear-wheel drive platform, while later generations were built with an elongated version of the GM Alpha platform.

Most models and generations of the Cadillac CTS coupes, sedans and wagons are available in either a rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive (AWD) configuration.
