It’s a bit of a shame that the 2014 Cadillac CTS couldn’t keep itself from being leaked. Just yesterday, several images of the D/E-segment Cadillac found themselves online thanks to some Flickr account. Today, the leak comes from USA Today, who are obviously not keen on making any friends. Regardless, it doesn’t change the fact that the third-generation Cadillac CTS is nothing short of gorgeous.
We see a lot of Ciel Concept in the front fascia, while the backside strikes us as a bit more tame. Call it a big ATS if you want, because it more or less is when considering the similar looks of the two sedans, the fact that they share the same platform, and that currently two out of the three engines that the CTS will offer (the 2.0L turbo I4 LTG and 3.6L naturally aspirated V6 LFX) are also found in the ATS. The range-topping CTS, what USA Today is calling the V-Sport, will feature the new LF3 twin-turbo V6 engine with 420 horsepower and Aisin-sourced eight-speed automatic transmission that can shift in 0.3 seconds.
We will be on-site tomorrow to attend to CTS’ official unveiling in New York, and will report back with a plethora of additional information, as well as our own photos of the car. In the meantime, let us know your take on the new CTS’ look in the comments below.
