2015 CADILLAC CTS SEDAN ADDS CONNECTIVITY, SAFETY TECHNOLOGY TO AWARD-WINNING LUXURY SPORT ARCHITECTURE
The Cadillac CTS Sedan returns for 2015 with enhancements that build on the package of engaging performance, elevated luxury and sophisticated technology that helped make it the 2014 Motor Trend Car of the Year.
Indeed, with its striking design and lightweight, rear-wheel-drive-based architecture – offered with three powertrains – the CTS stands out among the world’s best midsize sedans with a distinctive, satisfying blend of luxury and sport. It is lighter than its primary competitors, enabling the most agile driving dynamics in the class, and its range of power-dense powertrains underpin its performance, including Cadillac’s Twin-Turbo engine and eight-speed automatic transmission.
Inside, a roomy, driver-centric cockpit interior with integrated technology and hand-crafted appointments complements the exterior and supports the CTS sedan’s driving experience. Eight interior environments are offered, each trimmed with authentic wood, carbon fiber or aluminum. Leather seating is available, including available full semi-aniline leather, with hand-crafted, cut-and-sewn executions.
The 2015 CTS lineup is offered in well-equipped standard models, as well as Luxury, Performance and Premium Collections – and Vsport, which features the twin-turbo/eight-speed transmission combination as its exclusive powertrain. It helps the CTS Vsport reach 60 mph in an estimated 4.4 seconds and achieve an estimated top speed of 172 mph (277 kph).
New OnStar with 4G LTE and built-in Wi-Fi hotspot, as well as enhanced features for Cadillac CUE, bring greater connectivity and convenience to CTS drivers and passengers.
CTS design and exterior features
Linear elements, including an uninterrupted feature line that runs from the headlamps to the taillamps, emphasize the CTS’s long, lean proportion and contribute three-dimensional qualities to its surface. The sense of flow over the CTS sedan is furthered, too, with a “trapped” hood design – surrounded completely by sheet metal – that eliminates the forward cut lines between the grille and headlamps.
Cadillac’s signature bold vertical lighting elements – including LED front signature lighting details – evolve with headlamps that flow up and with the hood line. The headlamp housings incorporate crystalline LED light guides in the upper and lower forward corners, bringing uniform white illumination without hot spots and serving as the daytime running lamps.
Projector-beam halogen headlamps are standard and high-intensity discharge headlamps with Adaptive Forward Lighting System are available.
At the rear, first-, second- and third-order bezel elements within the taillamp housings offer a distinctive rear signature for the CTS when illuminated. LED lights within crystalline blade structures ensure a crisp, uniform appearance and the Cadillac script is etched in the upper illumination blade.
