    You have to have the 5.1 dolby DVD 10-speaker hard drive stereo.

    If it has navigation, it will have USB. Otherwise if it has a "Rec" (Record) button, it'll have this upgraded stereo.

    Standard on the "Premium" model, otherwise optional in certain other trims, varying by year.

    TimLangreck24221,

    The first year I see a USB port show itself on the CTS is the 2008 model year. If this is an important feature for you and if you're looking at vehicles, send us the VIN of any potential CTSs and we'd be happy to get you information on whether or not the USB port is included.

    I had it in my 2008 CTS, which had the upgraded stereo with the 40GB hard drive. The 2008 user manual talks about radios "with DVD Audio, HDD, and USB...."

    I have it in my 08 and couldn't do without it. I put all of my favorite mp3s on the HDD and have a micro 32gb drive in the USB port in the console for the rest of my music. (yes, I have a LOT of songs)

    I do not have the Nav system. Can a USB Port still be installed so music could be played through the radio??

    You don't need the nav system to have the USB. I don't have the nav, but I have a USB that I use to hook up my iPhone for music.

    Can USB be added without Nav?

    I have a 2009 Performance option CTS sedan but no USB. If I could ad it with the Nav that would be great.
