    2014 Cadillac CTS Spied With Twin-Turbo V6 and Interior Shot!

    2014 Cadillac CTS Spied With Twin-Turbo V6!
    Left Lane News
    June 11, 2012
    by Drew Johnson

    Itís been a while since weíve seen the 2014 Cadillac CTS testing in the wild, but the wait has apparently been worth it. Our spies have just sent us the latest shots of the next-generation CTS, including the carís interior and twin-turbo powerplant.

    Currently being developed under the codename A1LL, the next-generation CTS will ride on an extended version of the ATSí Alpha platform. With the ATS set to take on the BMW 3-Series, the 2014 CTS will grow a bit larger to better compete with the BMW 5-Series.

    Cadillacís Art & Science design language will remain part of the 2014 CTSí DNA, but the overall look will be refined. Prototypes of the CTS are still testing with heavy camouflage, but our photographers managed one lone shot showing off the carís new front end styling.

    The rear of the CTS will continue to feature Cadillacís signature vertical taillights, but a new bumper will sport integrated exhaust outlets.

    The next CTS will also, as our latest spy shots reveal, adopt an interior layout similar to that of the ATS and XTS. The overall shape of the carís interior will be more organic and include Cadillacís latest CUE infotainment system.

    The big news, however, has to do with the 2014 CTSí engine bay. Our photographers managed to snap a few shots with he carís hood open, revealing a new twin-turbocharged V6.

    That interior is amazing. This car is going to bring it to the E/5er, and hopefully it'll get new technology that no one else has. Cadillac is coming back!

    Thanks. It does look nice! I can't wait to see the specs on the TTV6! Let's hope for 400+ on torque and HP. I'm sure this car will weigh at least as much as the current car and maybe more with the extra size. If Cadillac is taking aim at the 5 series, their going to need the power and twist, as well as a tranny that shifts MUCH faster in "manual" mode than the one we have now. Standard paddle shifters would help as well.

    Re: 2014 Cadillac CTS Spied With Twin-Turbo V6 and Interior Shot!

    Alright, just my opinion, but it looks too big, despite loving the powertrain and the interior goodies. Granted, if they are going after the 5-series then it seems perfectly positioned. That's fine, but personally, I like the CTS Goldilocks size right now: not too big and not too small. Although I own a coupe, I think it applies equally to the sedan as well.

    Another question though, if the ATS is meant to compete with the 3-series (which I believe is appropriate), then where does the XTS fit in?

    I think it will compete with barges on the Rhine river.

    If the 2014 CTS has an 8 speed trans I will be interested. I would hate to buy the 2014 only to see the 8 speed come in 2015. A vehicle in this class should offer an 8 speed right out of the gate.

    I really don't care how many gears it has, only that the it makes the best possible use of them. If they give it enough torque and a flat enough torque curve, it won't need 8 different ratios to stay in a usable power band. A proper performance/racing style auto with a twin disk clutch that shifts at lightning speeds might be nice though.

    Re: 2014 Cadillac CTS Spied With Twin-Turbo V6 and Interior Shot!

    If I were betting man, I would say the next gen CTS will have less HP than more witnessed by the XTS. Fuel economy is the big thing right now and a paltry 23 mpg highway will not cut it, and the V-Series will be a thing of the past. They can hardly give the V's away and most dealers still have sizable inventories of 2011's of all Cadillacs.

    I hate turbos. I do not want Cadillac to become BMW or even Ford.

    Cadillac is shooting itself in the foot with the ATS. They will sell bunches of them at first, but resale values will be horrible. No potential buyer is going to pay a big premium for the tech stuff in the XTS and ATS, which is almost the same as in the Prius v Advanced Tech Package, albeit without blind spot and the magic screen. Most Cadillac buyers nowadays buy the base models just to say they have a Cadillac.

    I hate to say it, but once 20 January 2013 comes around the automakers better start pulling in their horns as dark days are ahead.

    There's nothing wrong with small engine models and more sedate versions. I just want to see at least one version that can stack up to the 550 head on. Without a V model and the LS9 (or equivalent), the M5 will still be out of range. I only use the 5 series as a gauge because Cadillac says that's the target competion.

    Hey Katie! Some real customer service would be more leaked shots and specs... nudge nudge wink wink.
