Overview

The 2009 Cadillac CTS is now offered with either a 263-horsepower, 3.6L V6 with variable valve timing, or a new direct-injection 3.6L making 304 horsepower. Besides increasing power output, the engine's direct injection system improves fuel economy and reduces emissions. Both engines can be paired with either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission with driver shift control. Performance oriented all-wheel drive system is available, mated only to the automatic transmission.

Three different suspension tuning levels are available ranging from comfortable to high-performance: FE1, FE2, and FE3. The standard wheels are 17-inch alloys, but larger 18-inch wheels are available, finished either with a multi-coat or high-polish look. All wheel drive is optional and adds $3200 to the price.

2016,The CTS does come very well equipped, but the interior appointments and available high-tech options are what really distinguish the model from its competitors. The center console was designed in consultation with entertainment industry experts and has an interface for iPods and music players, including a USB port. There's also an available 40-gigabyte hard-drive music system that allows recording of live radio and ripping of CDs. The sound system itself has a 300-watt amplifier, ten speakers, and Bose Centerpoint technology.

2016,The new interior incorporates handcrafted trim on the instrument panel and doors, and hand-cut, sewn, and wrapped materials used throughout. Recessed LED interior lighting also helps to improve the interior ambiance, and a distinctive Ultra-View sunroof that provides a sky view for both front and rear occupants is available. The seats themselves have been redesigned to maximize space for back-seat passengers.
2016,
2016,Late in the year, Cadillac introduced an ultra high-performance version of the CTS, dubbed the CTS-V, and it brings a new level of performance never before seen in Cadillac's lineup. The CTS-V is powered by a 6.2L supercharged V8 engine similar to that in the Corvette ZR1 that makes an astounding 556 hp and 551 lb-feet of torque. Stronger suspension and drivetrain components have been designed to handle the prodigious power of the V's engine. Large 12-inch Brembo brakes bring the CTS-V to a stop. Other standard features on the CTS-V include Magnetic Ride Control, 19-inch painted aluminum wheels, leather-wrapped steering wheel, dual-zone climate control and ultrasonic rear parking assist. A few options are available, including a double-sized UltraView sunroof, heated/ventilated front seats and paddle shift controls.
