The brand-new 2014 Cadillac CTS has a price to match its premium looks.
Unveiled at the NY Auto Show, longer, narrower and lighter than its predecessor, it appears the third-gen CTS will also carry a bigger price tag. The standard 2014 Cadillac CTS will start from $46,025 (including $925 destination charge), which is a bump of over $7k compared to the 2013 model. That puts it in the same bracket as the $48k BMW 5 Series and $52k Mercedes E-Class, the two cars GM has sent the car to do battle with. It’s stunning new looks and exciting new features arguably justify the price hike, while customers will have a range of trims, or “Collections, to choose from.
They will also have to decide between a 2.0-liter turbo-four, a 3.6-liter V6, rear- and all-wheel-drive, as well as the all-new 420-hp CTS Vsport priced at $59,995. The model we’re most looking forward to, however, is the new CTS-V sedan. Especially if the General opts to give it a forced induction version of the new Stingray’s LT1 unit.
