2011 Cadillac CTS Sport Sedan news, pictures, and information


The Cadillac CTS is the cornerstone of the Cadillac product lineup and continues to play a vital role in the renaissance of the brand. The BMW 5 Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class are the primary competitors for the CTS.

The CTS family grows in 2011 to include the CTS Coupe, in addition to the CTS Sport Wagon body style added in 2010 – including supercharged V-Series variants for all models. Please see the separate releases for detailed information on the CTS Coupe and CTS Sport Wagon.

The Cadillac CTS Sport Sedan’s signature exterior cues include vertically oriented ‘light pipes,’ horizontal spline lines and a dihedral-shaped hood – characteristic elements of Cadillac’s Art Science design language that have helped reinvent the brand in the 21st century.

CTS’ athletic form is characterized by sculpted fenders. They feature side air extractors that recall a styling element from Cadillac’s Sixteen concept car; as well as an available ÚltraView ‘double’ sunroof spanning both the front and rear seats.

Seven-spoke, 17-inch wheels or available nine-spoke, 18-inch wheels surround the CTS’ high-performance brake calipers and rotors. Both painted and machined finishes are available for the standard 17-inch wheels. The larger, 18-inch wheels are available in a premium multicoat finish or a high-polish finish.

In addition, a summer tire performance package is available on performance and premium trim levels of CTS. The package includes 19-inch polished aluminum wheels and Continental Conti SportContact2 summer tires, as well as unique performance suspension tuning and §teering wheel shift controls when the vehicle is equipped wîth an automatic transmission.

Available heated and ventilated seats incorporate ‘thin-seat’ technology for maximum occupant comfort and enhanced rear-seat leg, knee and foot room. French stitching is used throughout the interior, including the upper instrument panel, door inserts, seats and the shifter boot.

• Hard drive-based audio system

• Navigation system

• Adaptive forward lighting system

• Available Bluetooth phone connectivity

• Keyless Access and Smart Remote Start

• Bose 5.1 Cabin Surround™ audio system

• Últrasonic park assist and more.

Efficient performance

Direct injection (DI) technology enables a great balance of performance and fuel economy. DI delivers fuel more precisely to increase the efficiency of combustion. This means less fuel is consumed and fewer emissions created; it also reduces cold-start emissions by up to 25 percent.

A 3.0L DI V-6 is the standard engine and is rated at 270 horsepower (201 kW). Along wîth direct injection technology, the 3.0L engine employs variable valve timing to optimize power and fuel efficiency and reduce emissions. Highway fuel economy on 3.0L-equipped rear-wheel drive models is 28 mpg.

A 3.6L DI V-6 engine that produces 304 horsepower (227 kW) is available. Both engines balance performance and efficiency while operating on regular unleaded gas – many competitors to the CTS require premium fuel. (concept carz) Hydra-Matic six-speed automatic transmissions back both engines.

Driving experience

The CTS chassis enables a great balance of performance and luxury. The hardware includes structural enhancements via a tower-to-tower brace; large, four-wheel disc brakes and a ZF §teering rack. Four suspension tuning packages are available: base, performance (standard on 3.6L models and optional on 3.0L models), 19-inch performance all-season and the summer tire performance package wîth a summer-only 19-inch tire (RWD only).

All models feature an independent short/long arm (SLA) front suspension system, wîth performance characteristics optimized wîth low-mass aluminum for the upper and lower control arms, as well as the knuckles. A multi-link rear suspension, wîth a fully isolated subframe that delivers excellent kinematics, contributes to a superior ride wîth excellent handling. The CTS also features advanced chassis technology in the form of Cadillac’s StabiliTrak electronic chassis control system.

It is integrated wîth the car’s standard four-channel ABS wîth the full-function traction control, as well as the hydraulic brake assist and engine control systems.
