Redline Review: 2014 Cadillac CTS V-Sport
With the smaller ATS now in the lineup, the 2014 Cadillac CTS is finally
free to move up-market in size, power, and prestige. The all-new
third-generation CTS showcases a lot of firsts for the Cadillac brand. The
first twin-turbo engine, 8-speed
transmission, and a plethora of luxury and technology makes this one of the
best mid-size luxury sedans money can buy. If you want the best handling
vehicle in the segment, look no further, your sport sedan has arrived.
2012 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe 6MT Walkaround, Start Up, Exhaust, Review
Have a look at GM's aggressively styled CTS Coupe, the monster Corvette ZR1
motor makes it even more interesting, but if you ask our senior editor
Christian, he might say that the interior fit and finish needs some work to
keep up with those pricey Europeans.
"Though its practicality is disappointing, the 2012 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe
delivers a combination of world-class performance, style and value that's
tough to beat."

It's been decades since Cadillac produced the "Cadillac" of anything.
However, when car buffs dismiss the only American luxury brand left, they
fail to see Cadillac's march forward. 2002 brought the first RWD Cadillac
since the Fleetwoood. A year later the XLR roadster hit, followed in 2004
by Cadillac's first 5-Series fighter, the STS. Not everything was rosy. The
original CTS drove like a BMW but lacked charm and luxury fittings. The XLR
was based on a Corvette, which made for excellent road manners, but the
Northstar engine didn't have the oomph. The STS sounded like a good idea,
but the half-step CTS wasn't much smaller and ultimately shoppers weren't
interested in a bargain option. That brings us to the new ATS and CTS.
Ditching the "more car for less money" mantra, the ATS has been created to
fight the C/3/IS leaving the CTS free to battle the E/5/GS head-on. Can
Caddy's sensible new strategy deliver the one-two punch fans have hoped
for? I snagged a CTS 2.0T for a week to find out.
I found the outgoing CTS a little discordant, but 2014 brings an elegant
more aggressive refresh. GM's Art and Science theme has matured from
"cubism gone wrong" to shapes that flow and jibe with a larger grille and
softer creases. The 5-Series continues to go for elegant and restrained, I
find the XF and A6′s design a mixture of plain-Jane and snazzy headlamps
while the Infiniti Q5o and Lexus GS are going for flowing elegance.
The demur side profile continues with a simple character line to draw your
eye from front to rear. One thing you'll notice during that eye-movement is
the distinct RWD proportions that separate the CTS, E, 5, GS, XF and Q50
from the long-nosed Audi A6 and near-luxury FWD options. Out back the CTS'
rump is a bit less exciting but employs all the latest luxury cues from
hidden Exhaust tops to light piped
tail lamps. I was hoping Caddy's fins would be further resurrected, but
the "proto fins" on the XTS are absent. Pity. Obvious from every angle is
an attention to build quality absent from earlier generations with perfect
panel gaps and seams.
Unfortunately, the first thing you'll notice out on the road is the coarse
sound from under the hood. GM's 2.0L engine is no less refined than BMW or
Mercedes' four-bangers, but the difference is you can hear the engine in
the CTS. In fact, based on the overall quietness of the cabin (a
competitive 67 dB at 50 MPH), I can only conclude that Cadillac designed
the engine to be heard. I don't mind hearing the 3.6L V6, but most luxury
shoppers would prefer not to be reminded they chose the rational engine
every time they get on the freeway. On the bright side, because GM does not
offer start/stop tech, shoppers are spared the inelegant starts and stops
that characterize 528i city driving.
While I'm picking nits, the 6-speed found in the 2.0T and most 3.6 models
lacks the ratio spread and shift smoothness of the ZF 8-speed automatic
found in most of the competition.
The reason I label those flaws as mere nits is because of how the CTS
accomplishes every other task on the road. Acceleration to 60 happens a
4/10ths faster than an E350, a
half-second faster than the 528i,
a full second faster than a GS350,
and practically years ahead of the A6 2.0T. Part of this has to do with the
engine's superior torque curve and higher horsepower numbers, but
plenty has to do with curb weight. At 3,616 lbs, the CTS 2.oT is 200lbs
lighter than the BMW or Lexus, 400lbs lighter than an E350. The comparable
Audi A6 would be the front-wheel-drive 2.0T model with the CVT at 3,726. If
you think that's an unfair comparison, the 2.0T with Quattro is 3,900lbs
and does little to correct the A6′s front-heavy weight balance.
The 750 hp D3 Cadillac CTS-V -- /TUNED
The CTS-V is one of the most tunable sedans money can buy, thanks to its
Corvette-derived drivetrain and robust running gear. Its also quite
practical as a daily driver. We visit well known tuner D3 to see how the
CTS-V takes to their modifications.

Let's be honest, it has been quite some time since Cadillac has been "the
Cadillac" of anything. With the 2014 CTS V-Sport, Cadillac is aiming to
turn the clock back to Cadillac's heyday. The 2014 V-Sport isn't the value
option in the segment and it isn't even the cheapest option when you really
think about it. Instead Cadillac has done something that many detractors
thought impossible for an American brand: they quite simply made the better
sedan. The 2014 V-Sport may bring a V6 to a V8 fight, but after a week with
Caddy's new sport sedan it was easy to pick the winner. Unless you're
looking to deck your BMW, Mercedes or Audi up with rare and expensive
options, the CTS does just about everything the Germans can only better.

2014 Cadillac CTS Vsport vs 2013 Lexus GS350 F Sport! - Head 2 Head Ep. 45
The 2013 Lexus GS F Sport has taken down the likes of the BMW 535i, Audi A6
and Infiniti M37 in previous comparisons, and is our reigning king of the
luxury performance sedan segment. The new 2014 Cadillac CTS Vsport brings
two turbos, over 100 more horsepower, and a history of
excellent track-day capability to the table, but weighs over 100 lbs. more
than the Lexus. Can the light, balanced, and nimble Lexus hold its own
against the American powerhouse Cadillac CTS V Sport? On this episode of
Head 2 Head, Jonny Lieberman takes both cars to the testing grounds, canyon
roads, and finally the racetrack to find out.

The D3 Battle Wagon a 700HP CTS-V Station Wagon
We fell in love with this wagon the first time is set tires in our
workshop. On top of it being a wagon, it's a 6 speed manual trans!
In the D3 Battle Wagon, even trips to the grocery store are all the more
fun with 715 HP and 725 ft-lb's of Torque!
The build concept for the D3 Battle Wagon was to completely upgrade all OEM
components with the most aggressive bolt on parts possible. The result is
an ultra fun, track worthy station wagon!
Signal Hill, CA -- June 18th 2011, A 700+ Wheel horsepower CTS-V Station
Wagon dubbed "The Battle Wagon" has been completed for delivery to its
eagerly awaiting driver.
"CTS-V wagons are a still a rarity, on top of that finding a white 6 speed
manual was like trying to locate Atlantis!" Says John B. the owner of the
Battle Wagon. "The second I heard that Cadillac was going to launch the
CTS-V in wagon form I knew it would be my next car, I have always loved
wagons, from the E39 5 series to the Audi S4 Wagon now to the Cadillac
CTS-V Wagon. With less than 500 miles on the clock the wagon was booked
for an appointment at the D3 Motorsport Laboratory which is D3's in house
The tuning concept of The D3 Battle Wagon is to encompass manageable
amounts of horsepower, allowing for a
balanced, but track worthy grocery getter. To complete the Wagon the
Motorsport Laboratory has broken the build into 3 categories; Performance,
Efficiency & Chassis Tuning.
A wide range of Performance Tuning Equipment manufactured by D3 has been
utilized to upgrade the performance characteristics of the Cadillac CTS-V's
LSA power plant. The Pulley System has been upgraded via the D3 Stage 3
Performance Pulley Kit allowing for a mind numbing 17 PSI of Boost out of the factory Eaton 1.9L Blower
that has been Blueprinted to D3's specifications. To feed this Boost monster the D3 Air Intake, D3 Billet
Throttle Body and D3 Supercharger Lid
Spacer have been installed. Exhaust
work has been provided by the Kooks Long Tube Headers, Kooks X-Pipe with
Race Catalytic Converts and the CORSA touring mufflers. These upgrades
have yielded a raw horsepower gain of 244 wheel
To keep the D3 Battle Wagon ready for action all of its cooling has been
upgraded via the gamut of D3|ULTRACOOLERS. The ULTRACOOLER systems include
the D3 Front Mount Heat Exchanger (Intercooler) the D3 Competition Oil
Cooler, and the D3 Competition Radiator. The chassis has been dialed in
via the D3 suspension suite including: The D3 Competition Lowering
Springs, the D3 Competition Sway Bar Kit, D3 Chassis Bracing, D3 Stainless
Steel Brake Lines and Alcon 2pc Competition Rotors.
"When everything is said and done, I have a complete competition ready
CTS-V, and the best part is that it's a wagon!"

2014 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe Test Drive & High-Performance Luxury Car Video Review
The first generation Cadillac CTS-V debuted back in 2004 and came with an
engine out of a C5 generation Corvette. This CTS-V flew under the radar for
a few years until the release of the second generation car back in 2009.
This model turned the automotive world on its side thanks to a
fire-breathing supercharged V-8 motor that made 556 horsepower and set a factory
production sedan lap record at the Nürburgring ring. Then in 2011 we got
CTS-V coupe and wagon models. The price on the 2014 Cadillac CTS-V coupe is
Read More About the 2014 Cadillac CTS-V
Cadillac does a great job of distinguishing their V-Series cars and the
CTS-V has a handful of cues that tell the eagle-eyed enthusiast this car
means business. First thing you notice is the shiny mesh, aggressive lower
front fascia, massive black rims, and red Brembo brake calipers. The coupe
itself is a cool looking car with the angular shape and metallic paint job.
Out back the CTS-V sports an integrated rear wing and a trick center mount
Under the hood is where the magic happens. The 2014 Cadillac CTS-V is
powered by an LSA engine taken from a Corvette ZR-1. This Supercharged 6.2
Liter V-8 makes a whopping 556 horsepower and 551 lb-ft of
torque. The power is sent through a 6-speed transmission (auto or manual)
to the rear wheels. This luxury coupe looks good, sounds good, feels good,
and most importantly goes like a bat out of hell. The interior is very
driver focused. The model tested here is outfitted with the $3400 Recaro
performance seating package. An Alcantara treatment is given to the
steering wheel and shift knob.
The real thrill of any V-Series Cadillac is driving it. The CTS-V offers
you a great driving position with an unobstructed view of the road. More
importantly though is the great engine and gearbox sending that power to
the rear wheels which means fun. The ride is perfect thanks to the
Magnetic-Controlled shocks that are usually found on high priced exotics.
Now this may be the swan song for the Cadillac CTS-V coupe edition and if
so we will always smile about how it lived.
