Edmunds’ Inside Line site has some new spy photos and an exclusive spy video of the new CTS undergoing hot-weather testing with some of its expected competition (interestingly, BMW’s previous 5-series and the Infiniti M-class were in the group of cars shown in the video).
Edmunds conjectures that the CTS will have the 3.6l from the current CTS bumped to 280hp. It seems they missed the announcement from GM some time ago about the high-feature V-6 family getting direct injection soon – which would put the new CTS in the 300hp range (though this engine might not debut until the couple model comes out a year later).
As we’ve been saying for some time, expect the new CTS to debut in January at the Detroit Auto Show.
