    Re: 2014 CTS VSPORT Announced

    I think the true V in addition to the V sport will be in the line for quite awhile. It sounds like a V version of the ATS will soon be introduced and the CTS will certainly get a new "true V" version as the leading sport sedan of the brand. In the meantime the old style CTS sedan and coupe continue for 2014 in V trim.

    The V sport fits nicely between the 321 HP 3.6 and a yet to be named likely forced induction V8 for the third generation. The V sport package has confused some automotive journalists who rave about the price reduction for the 2014 V.

    I am just about sold on a V sport to replace my 08 CTS 3.6 but the Cadillac option packaging really irritates me. I don't like or want the automatic braking and a few other items included in the 3.6TT premium trim but it appears the sunroof will not be available as an option in the only other 3.6TT trim level. The CTS will remain my daily driver, I am buying a Corvette C7 for fun summer drives and with that in mind it is irritating as hell to be forced to get summer only tires for the V sport and this is especially ludicrous for a vehicle that has at minimum standard heated front seats and steering wheel. If I take delivery in spring I guess I can wear out the summer tires by fall but otherwise I guess it can go directly from the dealer to a tire store for suitable midwestern winter tires. I considered a BMW 335i before I bought the 08 CTS and will probably visit the BMW dealer again just to see which available package comes closest to what I really want.

    I agree that [ equipment-wise ] the V Sport sounds like it slots neatly
    between the 'regular' 3.6L V6 and the V, whenever that is released.
    The price point just is not justified, for me.
    Agree about the sunroof issue.
    BTW: I am about to turn in a leased 335iS.
    The V Sport sounds like it would have been
    a suitable replacement, at a substantially
    lower price point - and with the sunroof issue
    resolved.

    Will miss the BMW....

    V-Sport is it. I hear no more V8's in anything but Vettes. There is no V3. Cadillac is blowing it. How many people will really buy a VS? I wish they would stick with naturally aspirated V8's(like the racecar).

    If I was a betting man I'd offer you a wager that you're wrong

    A little bird told me. I forget where I heard it but I heard it a couple times. I hope I am wrong. The V-Sport really made me believe it. I'd bet a 6-pack.

    I really dont think they would be selling the old ctsv alongside the vsport if it wasnt selling well. And they arent going to cancel it if its selling. I would be really surprised if there is no 3rd gen v.
