This new 2016 Cadillac CTS has added a few key features to the model this year. Most notably is the addition of the available 3.6L V6 engine for the Premium and V-Sport selections. And where the 2.0L standard engine is still available and still provides a competitive MPG, Horsepower, and torque to its competitors, the new 3.6L offers a new level of performance for the CTS. Accompanying this addition are various enhancements to the exterior, interior, performance, safety, and technology making the 2016 Cadillac CTS “ideal for highway cruising, thanks to its smooth ride” according to Edmunds


The standard engine on the Cadillac CTS is a 2.0L. Also available is a 2.5L and the 3.6L engine. Drivers can also upgrade their engine to the turbocharged 3.6L on select trims. All engines utilize an 8 speed automatic transmission which has been tested for performance on one of Germany’s top performance tracks. Available AWD transmissions maximize the stability and the handling of the vehicle. This option is available on most of the trim selections excluding the 3.6L V series.

The V Sport allows the driver even more power with a direct injection twin turbo V6. As the horsepower increases a great deal from the other models, a ZF premium steering system and other technology have been engineered into the V-Sport to increase handling, control, safety, and performance.

Beyond the engine, the 2016 Cadillac CTS maximizes the performance and functionality of the vehicle by implementing magnetic ride control on the suspension, Brembo Front brakes, and enhancement alert systems to maximize the driving experience. Fuel efficiency has been increased with the use of a near perfect weight balance design.


The exterior of the 2016 Cadillac CTS epitomizes the sports and luxury that the brand has come to be known for. A double grille has been used with the iconic Cadillac grille dominating the majority of the front end. The angular bottom of the bumpers gives the vehicle a bit of an aggressive edge where the tapered sides hood and lighting give the vehicle the slick and modern automotive design that consumers have come to expect in a luxury class vehicle.

Dynamically enhancing the overall aesthetics of the exterior is the lighting that was used. The LED lighting offers ample viewing space in both daytime and night driving. The windblown look of the lighting adds to the power and performance perception. The low and narrow design cuts wind reduction as well as increases the sporty appearance. Overall, the angles and curvature gives a luxurious appearance and conveys the strength of the CTS well.


The 2016 Cadillac CTS brings the luxury of the Cadillac brand from the exterior to the interior. A 12.3 inch customizable display allows the driver to clearly see vital information such as the MPH and RPMs as well as other more non-essential information such as the song selection. Surround vision cameras give the driver the option of seeing not just the front and the rear but all angles of the CTS in order to minimize the risk for collision and damage.

As vehicles come with more than one seat, the of the passengers have been a top priority in the design of the 2016 CTS. The new 2016 CTS offers a infortainment system called the Cadillac Cue. This system allows for the access to select apps such as Pandora, messaging, weather forecasts, navigational assistance, and emergency assistance depending on what subscriptions that person has. Those which do not want to use the console can make use of their personal devices from one of the multiple USB ports available.
