After setting the whole world excited with teaser images and leaked internet images, the 2014 Cadillac CTS has finally made its public debut at the ongoing 2013 New York Auto Show.
The latest generation of the sedan gets an all new design that is based on an evolved form of the carmaker’s Art & Science design language.
The new CTS borrows the rear-wheel drive architecture from the ATS sport sedan. The all new 2-14 Cadillac CTS is 127mm longer than the outgoing model and offers more spacious interiors.
The interiors are high on equipment and come with CUE multimedia system that has an 8”touchscreen display and Bluetooth, USB and SD card support. Other notable additions to the new car are Magenetic Ride Control real time dampening system, limited slip differential and Brembo disc brakes with aluminum calipers.
Cadillac claims that the new car has an almost 50:50 front-rear weight distribution.
Powering the flagship V-sport variant is a 3.6 litre twin turbocharged V6 petrol engine that has a max power output of 420 bhp and a peak torque curve of 583 Nm. The engine is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission wand the car can accelerate from standstill to 100kmph in 4.6 seconds.
Other engines on offer include a 3.6 litre, normally aspirated, 321 bhp V6 petrol and a 2.0 litre turbocharged 272 bhp petrol motor. While the 3.6 litre NA engine is mated to an 8-speed automatic gearbox that sends power to rear-wheels and a 6-speed automatic gearbox that sends power to all four wheels, the 2.0 litre turbo comes mated to a 6-speed automatic gearbox only.
