2008 Cadillac Ratings, Reviews and Awards

2008 finds Cadillac in the midst of a complete redesign, bringing unified styling to its model lineup. Several cars got new designs this year, including Cadillac's entry-level option, the CTS. While it retains its 113.4-inch wheelbase from 2007, it adds about two inches in width in its front and rear tracks, plus about 1.5 inches to its overall length. While the CTSV gets skipped this year, the CTS itself has a sporty 263 hp, 3.6 L, V-6 engine. The Escalade was redesigned last year and has changed little from 2007's model. It still houses a gigantic 6.2 L, V-8 engine that produces 403 hp (469 hp when it's supercharged) for a combined 15 mpg. The STS, a midsize sedan, gets a more pronounced makeup, with a new base V-6 engine that's 3.6 L, producing 302 hp and 272 pound-feet of torque.
