    Maybe it's Calais?

    As long as it doesn't mean Cimmeron, it doesn't matter why they chose it. But Catera and the fact it's against the C-Class Mercedes both probably played into the naming.

    sort of..i guess its a mix mercedes has C-Class, E-Class, S-Class, et al....and BMW has 3-series, 5-series, and 7-series. Cadillac has combined the 2 and has C-series, S-series, D-series i guess

    this is from a media release from GM

    CTS

    The 2003 Cadillac CTS reflects the glories of Cadillac's past, and foreshadows the designs of all future Cadillacs.
    The "CTS" which stands for a Cadillac C-series touring sedan, is engineered with exclusive rear-wheel-drive architecture, dubbed Sigma.
    The exterior design of the CTS is crisp and clean and the interior is designed for comfort and convenience.
