Designers put a lot of thought into every aspect of a car, inlcuding the lighting. With new technological advances and creative-thinking from the CTS design team, the 2008 Cadillac CTS has one of the most innovative lighting systems around. At a recent Cadillac Press Event, automotive journalists were given an inside look at the CTS' lighting system. Kevin Smith, Cadillac Communication Director, John Howell, Cadillac Product Director and John Manoogian, Lead Exterior Designer were on-hand to explain the importance of great lighting.

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.
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.
