Overview

What's New
The CTS only gets one change for 2007: the Directions & Connections plan has been added to the OnStar NavTraffic service. The likely reason for the single change is that the CTS will be completely redesigned for 2008, with a new exterior and interior, a new 6-speed transmission, all-wheel drive, more features, and more performance.

Overview
The CTS midsize luxury sedan is the model that began the renaissance for the Cadillac brand, and has largely been a sales success. Without a doubt, the CTS has helped Cadillac regain its standing in the luxury segment of the marketplace. The CTS soldiers on for 2007 with good performance, amenities, and driving fun. The addition of the Directions & Connections plan to the basic OnStar service allows owners to get directions from the OnStar operators, as well as vehicle diagnostics, automatic notification of air bag deployment for instant help immediately following an accident, information and convenience services, and RideAssist, which assists owners needing a ride home. The NavTraffic system can analyze traffic flow on the programmed route-as well as display on-screen symbols that identify accidents and road work-and can suggest an alternate route, potentially saving drivers a lot of time and frustration.

The base CTS offers a choice of two V-6 engines and two transmissions. The 2.8-liter DOHC V-6 makes 210 hp and 194 lb.-ft. of torque, while the larger engine is a 3.6-liter unit that cranks out 255 hp and 252 lb.-ft. of torque. The standard transmission is a 6-speed manual for those who prefer to do the shifting themselves. The available 5-speed Hydra-Matic automatic transmission allows the driver to choose between sport, winter, or economy modes, depending on the type of driving and road conditions.

The CTS also comes in a high-performance V-Series for those who want a bit more power and performance. It comes with a 6.0-liter V-8 engine producing an impressive 400 hp and 395 lb.-ft. of torque. The CTS-V also incorporates many structural, handling, and styling upgrades over the regular CTS, which makes it a great choice for the driver who likes tight ride and handling without paying six figures for the privilege.

The Competition
The Cadillac CTS competes in the Compact Premium Conventional segment, which consists of 15 models. Buyers in this segment look for performance, exterior styling, and quality, according to the J.D. Power and Associates 2006 Avoider StudySM and the Escaped Shopper Study.SM

The top sellers in the segment during calendar year 2006, according to the J.D. Power and Associates Sales Report,SM were the BMW 3 Series (120,180 units sold), Acura TL (71,348), and Infiniti G35 (60,741). The Cadillac CTS sold 54,846 units in 2006, a decrease of 10.8 percent compared to the previous year. Other models offered in the Compact Premium Conventional segment include the Lexus IS-Series, Mercedes-Benz C-Class, Audi A4, Acura TSX, and Volvo S40/V50.
