The Cadillac CTS established itself as the brand’s first credible shot at taking on BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Audi as a competitive luxury brand.
The alchemical use of aluminum, high-strength steel and strategic body reinforcement on the latest CTS has dramatically lowered the car’s overall weight, making it the lightest car in its class. Besides the aforementioned twin-turbo six, a Cadillac sport sedan includes a capable eight-speed automatic, performance suspension with Magnetic Ride Control, electronic limited-slip differential, dual exhaust, Pirelli P Zero run-flat tires, Brembo brakes up front, and silver-painted aluminum 18-inch wheels.
Driving it, one quickly understands that it’s luxurious, yes, but it is so much more of a purebred sports car than one can expect. And it's worthy to be mentioned that this one of the most dynamically engaging cars in its class came from the offices in the GM Renaissance Center world headquarters in the background.
But Cadillac doesn't stop there, the upcoming CT6 is designed to elevate the brand further with an all-new V-6 engine family. As thus Cadillac is approaching world-class status, and we look forward to seeing how the CT6 will fare in the next installment of Cadillac versus the Germans.
