This new low slung CTS is a serious sports sedan that requires no apologies. The fresh interior design is complemented with high quality materials. Engine choices include two versions of the 3.6L V-6 (263-bhp and 304-bhp). To get the extra 41-bhp, the 3.6L features direct fuel injection and a 11.4:1 compression ratio. Transmission choices include a 6-speed manual or automatic. Optional AWD and a limited-slip differential provide additional traction. Standard 17-inch alloy wheels can be upgraded to 18-inch alloys. Optional summer performance tires are available with the 18-inch wheels. The CTS has a wide array of option packages that can easily add up to $12,000 to the base price.

What Changed:

A new 3.0L V6 becomes the base engine.
