GM Talks About and Shows Running Footage of the New 2014 Cadillac CTS

|

This week's 2013 New York Auto Show turned out to be a big event for General Motors as it has no less than five world premieres, the most important of which are the new generation of the Cadillac CTS and the revamped 2014 Chevrolet Camaro.

With the CTS series being for Cadillac what the 3-Series is for BMW, it's no wonder that GM paid so much attention to the new model that has been designed from the ground up to look at the German competition (think BMW 5-Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class) straight in the eyes.

The first impressions are positive, be that in terms of design - sans the flavorless rear end that looks like it was cobbled up at the last minute and lacks the character of the front, or the technical specifications and the welcome addition of two modern turbocharged powerplants, a 272hp 2.0-liter inline-four, and a 420hp 3.6-liter V6, plus the fact that it's bigger but lighter (by up to 200lbs or 90kg) than its predecessor.

In the HD videos that follow below the break, you can watch GM's people talk about the CTS as well as to see the car on the road.

I wonder if Caddy will make a full size rwd lux car to compete with the 7 series and S Class. Because we all know the XTS is just meant for the domestic market.

Most beatiful car in the segment, well done & bring it to Europe!

I have an '06 CTS and it still catches my eye to where I stop, stand back and take it all in. I won't say the most beautiful car in the world, to each their own, but long lasting attractiveness is there.

So glad to see this beauty in a color besides apple red..

Yeah, that remains to be seen.


I believe Cadillac is seriously mulling over the concept, but will not enter until it has a product that can really be a true competitor. Personally, I'm glad GM is taking it's time with a full size Flag Ship...Let them get it right.

You get lost in thought because it's such unfamiliar territory.

No, the right (driver-side) is broken - DRL can't work together at full power with low-beams because of blinding oncoming drivers - it's dangerous especially in the night!
Beside that it's really embarrassing to put this promo-video with broken DRL...!!!
