2014 Cadillac CTS Undisguised

A s we have discovered in the past several months, Cadillac is moving their CTS to a stretched version of the new Alpha platform that debuted with the ATS. This Alpha+ based CTS will bring styling in line with the ATS and XTS to the bread-and butter of the Cadillac sedan line-up. It will move the CTS slightly upmarket to go head-to-head with the BMW 5-Series and Mercedes E-Class (from its prior position as a ‘tween that was larger than the 3-Series/C-Class but smaller than the next-rung up offerings from the competition.

What we didn’t know was what it might look like…now, thanks to Jalopnik.com we have an undisguised (if somewhat blurry) look at the styling.

In keeping with its more grown-up position, the CTS will bring together both the wrap into the fenders headlight graphic of the ATS as well as the prominent and forward jutting grill of the Cadillac Ciel concept.

2014 Cadillac CTSAdditional expectations are three power-plants (at least in non-V trim) that will likely bring a turbo 2.0 4-cylinder as the base engine, the tried and true DI 3.6 V-6 at the mid-level, and as a bridge to the V-Series a twin-turbo V-6. This should give 270hp, 320hp, and 400-ish hp. We would expect a year later to see a CTS-V with a forced-induction V-8 with likely north of the current 556hp (though we likely will lose our favorite CTS-Vs, the coupe and wagon).

Expect an official unveiling of the CTS later this year.
