“These recognitions further solidify Cadillac’s continued elevation to the heart of the luxury market,” said Bill Peffer, U.S. vice president of Cadillac sales and service. “It's gratifying to see the experts and buyers agree that Cadillac offers one of the strongest lineups available on the market.”
The 2014 rear-wheel drive CTS offers three powertrains: A 272-hp 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder is standard and EPA-rated at 20/30 mpg city/highway; a 321-hp naturally aspirated V-6 is available as is all-wheel drive. Exclusive to CTS Vsport is the all-new 420-hp 3.6-liter Cadillac Twin-Turbo V-6 engine. The 2014 CTS is also the first Cadillac vehicle to receive the brand’s eight-speed automatic.
"With a contemporary new look, a revised interior and more powerful and fuel-efficient engines, the redesigned 2014 Cadillac CTS is a serious contender in the midsize luxury sedan class," said Edmunds.com Editor-In-Chief Scott Oldham.
The awards from Edmunds.com join a growing list of accolades for Cadillac. CTS last year was named Motor Trend Car of the Year, one of Car and Driver’s 10 Best and Road & Track’s 2013 Luxury Car. Earlier this month, CTS was named an Automobile Magazine 2014 All-Star.
The 2013 Cadillac ATS sedan was the MotorWeek “Best of the Year” Drivers’ Choice award winner, as well as the MotorWeek Drivers’ Choice Best Sport Sedan.
