The 2014 Cadillac CTS sedan is almost out in the open


Americans from General Motors had finally decided to remove the black vinyl camouflage from the 2013 Cadillac CTS and in the gallery below you have the opportunity to see the first spy pictures of the premium sedan model. Of course, it is still a little too early to say a lot about it, but it is a little easier to assume. We can see the outline and the edgy design formula of Arts & Science. The styling of the new Cadillac CTS sedan is very important, but also the carmaker decided to increase its size. This way it will be capable of competing with models like the BMW 5-series, Audi A6, Lexus GS and the German Mercedes-Benz E-Class. The idea for the third generation CTS and the strategy the specialists are trying out now comes after the presentation of the Cadillac ATS, a model that was designed to rival the BMW 3-Series and the Infiniti G series. Nothing is for sure yet, but the CTS Mk3 might replace the Sigma II platform of the current model. The replacement will be with a new rear-drive Alpha platform architecture developed by General Motors and that underpins the ATS.



The current CTS saloon is being produced since 2007 and it is powered by a 3.0-liter V6 engine capable of developing 270 horsepower. The other variant in terms of power is a 3.6-liter V6 capable of producing 318 horsepower. Last, but not least, there is the 6.2-liter V8 capable of developing 556 horsepower. There is the possibility the new model will be powered by the 3.6-liter V6 or even by the 6.2-liter V8 and this means there is a big chance, the carmaker will replace the 3.0-liter V6 wit the new 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four capable of developing 270 horsepower. This engine was actually first introduced in the ATS. For the European customers, the carmaker will have to consider a turbo diesel unit. The official debut is expected to take place sometime next year. carscoopblogspot
