2010 Cadillac SRX. You might not guess by looking at it, but the current
Cadillac SRX -- based on the first-generation CTS sedan platform and
offering available V8 power -- is one of the more athletic mid-size luxury
crossovers out there. For round two, the five-passenger SRX moves to a new
front-wheel-drive-based platform and gains sportier sheetmetal, a richer
interior and more sophisticated powertrains: a direct-injected 3.0-liter V6
good for an estimated 260 horsepower and a turbocharged 2.8-liter V6 delivering an estimated
The top-level engine gives up 20 horsepower to the outgoing
V8, but promises a significant improvement in fuel economy. The SRX will
continue to offer optional all-wheel drive, now with an electronic
limited-slip differential. Inside, contemporary interior design is
complemented by a full set of modern amenities including a pop-up
navigation/information system, dual-screen rear-seat entertainment and

2014 Cadillac CTS 2.0T Review and Road Test
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.
Cadillac CTS Sedan Review - Kelley Blue Book
FOR MORE CAR VIDEOS & REVIEWS VISIT:
Cadillac CTS Sedan. Not long ago Cadillac was a brand in crisis. A stale
product line and stodgy image limited its appeal to those who were old
enough to remember the brands long-past golden era. Then in 2003 Cadillac
introduced the CTS, a bold departure from traditional Cadillac design.
Angular shapes and aggressive lines helped the CTS redefine what an
American luxury car could be.
Welcome to our comprehensive Kelley Blue Book review of the Cadillac CTS.
Now in its second generation, the CTS continues to express Cadillacs
devotion to daring design and world-class engineering. The redesigned CTS
improves on the previous models weak points by offering a more luxurious
interior, greater power and even bolder styling than before. For more new

2014 Cadillac CTS 2.0L Turbo Test Drive Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/cadillac/cts/2014 In the past the CTS had to serve
2 roles for Cadillac: it was first the entry level car and second was the
BMW 5-Series competitor. But now with the ATS; the 2014 Cadillac CTS has
grown a couple of inches and can finally just be a mid-sized luxury car.
The new redesigned CTS looks a lot like the ATS though and that is either a
good thing or bad thing depending on what you think of Cadillac's new
design direction. The CTS has a base price of $39,495 with the
top-of-the-line model going for $69,070.
Under the hood is a turbocharged 2.0
liter 4-cylinder engine that makes 272 horsepower and 295 lb-ft. of
torque. The transmission is a 6-speed automatic and fuel economy figures
are 19 MPG in the city and 29 MPG on the highway.
The most important part of a luxury car is the interior. The interior of
the 2014 Cadillac CTS says "you have arrived." There are nice soft-touch
leather materials along with natural wood trim that gives this car a
"German feel." The suspension has the GM Magnetic Ride Controlled Shocks
that really give the CTS a nice luxurious ride quality.
This Cadillac CTS tested here is the Premium model which is loaded with all
the gadgets and technology you would expect out of a high-end German luxury
car. Some of the systems include: Adaptive Cruise Control, a Self-Parking
System, and a digital gauge cluster just to name a few.
