The Cadillac CTS is an executive car that was manufactured by Cadillac between 2002 and 2019. The name stands for Catera Touring Sedan. It was later replaced by the Cadillac CT5 which was released in 2019.
During its time on the market, there were three generations, with the most recent being released in 2014.
Cadillac released several models with the CTS. These consist of the regular 4-door sedan, 2-door coupe, 5-door Sport Wagon, and the high-performance CTS-V for all configurations. The first two generations were built on the GM Sigma platform, while the final generation implemented the GM Alpha platform.
The CTS-V Sport Wagon became one of the fastest production station wagons of all time upon its release.
Being in the executive class, it typically faced competition from the big German offerings. The Audi A6, BMW 5-Series, and Mercedes E-Class were all rivals. Additionally, the high-performance variant competed with their corresponding performance models.
The available powertrains ranged widely, although all of them were limited to gasoline. These range from the turbocharged 2-liter Ecotec inline-4 found in the third generation, to the supercharged 6.2-liter V8 found in the second and third-generation CTS-V models.
Transmission options consisted of either several 6-speed manual gearboxes, as well as automatic transmissions ranging from 5-speed to 8-speed gearboxes.
Trim levels started with the base Standard, followed by Luxury, and Premium Luxury. The CTS-V models also had the same trim levels available. This meant customers were able to access the highest performance specs with even the base trim level. This is a fairly unique option provided by Cadillac.
It received some critical acclaim, being awarded the Motor Trend Car of the Year in both 2008 and 2014.
