Cadillac CTS, Upgraded for 2017 with Even More Style and Technology

The Cadillac CTS luxury sedan, the centerpiece of Cadillac’s expanded and elevated portfolio, receives new exterior appearance upgrades, technology features and streamlined trim levels for 2017.

The 2017 Cadillac CTS features an all-new grille design in the front fascia and an all-new rear fascia with vertical exhaust orientation and valence panel changes. The front fascia remains unchanged for the CTS-V.

Linear elements, including an uninterrupted feature line that runs from the headlamps to the tail lamps, emphasize the Cadillac CTS’s long, lean proportions and contribute three-dimensional qualities to its surface. CTS’s low height contributes to the world-class driving dynamics and the car’s sophisticated curb-appeal.

A Carbon Black sport package, two exterior colors and two wheel designs – including an 18” V-Sport wheel – are also new for 2017, completing a compelling blend of performance and luxury.

Rear Camera Mirror, the industry’s first application of full-display technology, is available for 2017 models, after having made its Debut earlier in the year on the First Ever Cadillac CT6. Cadillac CUE, the centerpiece of the Cadillac CTS’s comprehensive collection of technologies – including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto* has been endowed with upgraded hardware for a faster more streamlined experience.

The Cadillac CTS is lighter than its primary competitors, enabling the most agile driving dynamics in the class, and its range of power-dense powertrains underpins its performance.

The 2.0L Turbo 268 horsepower 4-Cylinder engine is one of the most power-dense engines in the industry, delivering 90 percent of its peak torque from 2100 rpm to 5400 rpm and the full 400 Nm of peak torque from 3000 to 4500 rpm. The broad torque band is supported by boost levels as high as 18 psi (1.26 bar) in the speed range, which is designed to give the lightweight Cadillac CTS an exhilarating feeling of immediate power on demand.

The 3.6L V-6 is the most powerful naturally aspirated V-6 in its segment with SAE-certified output of 335 horsepower and 386 Nm of torque. Fuel-saving technologies include direct injection, continuously variable valve timing, and Active Fuel Management with cylinder deactivation technology.

Both the 2.0T and 3.6L V-6 feature the efficiency enhancing stop/start system.

Re-named for consistency across the Cadillac showroom, the new trim levels – CTS, Luxury, Premium Luxury, V-Sport and V-Sport Premium Luxury – move the Cadillac CTS more in line with recently launched Cadillac entries, the first ever Cadillac CT6 prestige sedan and first ever Cadillac XT5 luxury crossover.

The Cadillac CTS, which debuted as the current generation in 2014, has been named a Car and Driver “10 Best” for three years in a row and received Motor Trend’s Car of the Year award.

Built on a unique rear-wheel drive chassis that also underpins the smaller ATS sedan and coupe, the CTS line-up welcomed the highly anticipated third-generation, high-performance CTS-V super sedan in 2016.
