Cadillac 2014 was a singular icon of global automotive luxury, the ultimate status aspiration for American drivers, and the pinnacle of Detroit's golden age, "The Standard Of The World." Through Caddy, General Motors enacted innumerable innovations, from electric starting to the luxury SUV to, most recently magnetorheological suspension, a technology that ultimately made its way onto cars like the Ferrari 458 and Audi R8. The Cadillac Eldorado and Deville, with their long lines and occasionally outrageous tailfins, defined American excess during the boom years. But times have changed, and Cadillac is trying to keep pace.
The 2014 CTS Coupe displays an impressive balance of performance and styling. A truly dramatic presence can be seen in both its deeply sculpted lines and highly responsive 318 HP 3.6L direct injection engine. As smart as it is stunning, the CTS Coupe features amenities like Adaptive Remote Start, keyless access and available Side Blind Zone Alert.1 The available Touring Package elevates the CTS beyond its already extraordinary character. Standard performance engineering includes a Limited Slip Differential, which enables excellent high-speed stability with comfortable low-speed maneuverability.
Cadillac went to great lengths to quiet the cabin, including using Bose Active Noise Cancellation. It actively monitors power train noise and sends out opposing non-audible frequencies through the speakers to help reduce these sounds, With an exceptionally low curb weight, near 50/50 weight balance from front-to-back and a low center of gravity, every gram of this performance-tuned machine is engineered to exhilarate.
