Narrow year range (drag arrows to filter):
2012 CTS models receive a new available 318-horsepower V6 engine, three new exterior colors (Black Diamond, Opulent Blue and Mocha Steel) and standard Bluetooth hands-free phone capability. The exterior colors are also available for the CTS-V models, as well as an available blind spot warning system for the coupe model.
A fuel-saving 3.0-liter gasoline direct injection V6 is now the CTS' standard engine. New features include an air filtration unit with automatic cabin odor filtration and available 19-inch polished aluminum wheels. Later in the model year, a wagon version will join the CTS lineup (reviewed separately).
Building upon Cadillac's commitment to reestablish its place as the world's standard of luxury, the 2012 CTS lineup aims to bring the fight directly to its European and Japanese competitors with a brand-new powerplant, additional standard equipment and a host of high-tech features. For 2012, variety is the name of the game. With sedan, coupe, and wagon models, high-performance CTS-V variants for each body style, and available all-wheel drive (AWD), the Cadillac CTS series is perhaps the most diverse nameplate in the luxury segment.
