Cadillac STS is Still With Us for 2011

Industry News

As Cadillac prepares the upcoming XTS large luxury sedan, the rear-drive STS soldiers on for another year. Although it's not a bad car, the STS stands a good chance of being on the shopping list of your hi black socks and worryingly short khaki shorts wearing father-in-law. Along with the DTS, it will no longer be available with GM's 4.6-liter Northstar V8. Instead, the only engine offered will be the direct-injected 3.6-liter V6 producing 302 hp and 272 lb-ft of torque.

This shouldn't be considered a bad change, considering the Northstar engine is quite dated and has bad fuel economy. In fact, it only produces an additional 18 hp and 43 more lb-ft of torque over the V6 - with significantly worse fuel usage. The 2011 STS will come with standard equipped such as the latest generation OnStar. It's available with an optional Platinum trim, which adds 18-inch wheels, Alcantara headliner, and leather seating. With a base price of $47,280, the STS is a decent bargain for a large rear-drive luxury sedan. It tops off at around $65k if all optional features are included.
