Full details won’t be revealed for some time yet, but some initial pricing for the 2014 Cadillac CTS sedan was announced earlier this morning. According to General Motors, the 2014 Cadillac CTS will start at $46,025, including $925 in destination fees.
That $46,025 buys you a 2014 CTS sedan in its most basic configuration. Although the CTS is available in so-called Luxury, Performance, and Premium Collection guises, this price figure represents what Cadillac’s order guide refers to as a “standard” CTS. Cadillac spokesman Brian Corbett tells us pricing information for other flavors of the 2014 CTS will be available at a later date.
What’s included with a “standard” 2014 Cadillac CTS? A 272-hp, 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, for starters, along with a six-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive. All-wheel drive will be available, but pricing has not been disclosed. Standard equipment on base 2014 CTS models also includes Cadillac’s CUE infotainment system with an 8-inch touch-screen display, a 5.7-inch LCD gauge cluster, remote start, push-button entry and ignition, a Bose 11-speaker audio system with Sirius XM and HD Radio reception, and Bluetooth connectivity.
An optional 321-hp, naturally aspirated 3.6-liter V-6 is available on the 2014 Cadillac CTS, but only on models equipped with the Luxury, Performance, or Premium Collection trim packages. Rear-wheel drive models mate the engine to an eight-speed automatic transmission, while all-wheel-drive models use a six-speed automatic.
Price figures for 2014 CTS models fitted with the 3.6-liter have yet to be announced, but Cadillac did announce pricing for its top-tier CTS: the 2014 CTS Vsport, which is fitted with a hot 420-hp, twin-turbocharged 3.6-liter V-6, an eight-speed automatic, electronic limited-slip differential, and rear-wheel drive. According to Cadillac, the 2014 CTS Vsport rings in at $59,995, including destination.
Despite announcing pricing for only two variants, Corbett says Cadillac isn’t planning a staggered launch for the 2014 CTS, but cars equipped with the 2.0-liter turbo-four and the 3.6-liter V-6 will likely roll off the assembly line shortly before the twin-turbocharged Vsport model enters production. Cadillac says 2014 CTS sedans should arrive in dealers nationwide this fall.
