2015 Cadillac CTS Reviews, Prices and Pictures – Welcome to Neocarsuv.com, we will provide the latest information about the Cadillac CTS Concept. 2015 Cadillac CTS changes is one brand new car from Cadillac that was released in 2015. We will also review about the price, interior, exterior and engine of the 2015 Cadillac CTS Release Date.
The 2015 CTS is proof that Cadillac is learning from the mistakes and missteps of previous decades and ven better not repeating them. Each successive CTS has been better executed and, well, just better. Careful honing and constant improvement make for great cars, and if you do so long enough, you’ll have built a strong brand. So, yes, the third-generation CTS is better than the last one, but more important, the improvements have placed it among the sports-sedan elite.
The Cadillac CTS receives a short list of updates for 2015 including the addition of the new Cadillac crest to the grille making this already excellent luxury sedan that much better. This year, it’s only offered as a sedan, competing well against vehicles like the Jaguar XF, Audi A6, BMW 5-Series, Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
For shoppers interested in the CTS-V Coupe performance models, Cadillac will sell 500 final edition cars during the second half of 2014. (Read our most recent full review on the carry-over Cadillac CTS-V Coupe.)
Amongst its competitors, the CTS sedan has taken a giant leap over its last generation as a standout in the segment, better even than our beloved Cadillac ATS, which became the 2013 North American Car of the Year.
The 2015 Cadillac CTS is a luxury large car that receives new connectivity and technology features this year. The 2015 Cadillac CTS is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 272 horsepower. A six-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive come standard and all-wheel drive is available. A 321-horsepower 3.6-liter V6 engine is optional, and CTS Vsport models come with a 420-horsepower, twin-turbocharged 3.6-liter V6 engine. The base 2015 CTS sedan earns an EPA-estimated 20/30 mpg city/highway, while CTS Vsport models gets 16/24 mpg.

Lane keep assist and lane change alert are newly available as part of the Driver Awareness package. Forward collision warning and a rearview camera are also optional.

2015 Cadillac CTS Exterior
That retreat is unmistakable because from some angles, the 2015 CTS has an uncanny resemblance to the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. It’s all in the rear roofline, the angle of the pillar that bends down toward the trunklid, and the shapes of the side glass. The blunt edges have been smoothed down; the LED trim on its vertical headlamps does the neat visual trick of pulling the nose to the ground, while it picks it up and into the fenders. Inside, the dash cap is wrapped in a single piece that drapes into the center stack, and wood trim mingles with cut-and-sew upholstery, at least on uplevel models. The touchscreen CUE interfaces dominates the cockpit, with big, bright displays in the center stack and in the gauges in some cases, replacing the gauges entirely.
Cadillac’s CUE system will be available. It’s a defining piece of technology for the brand, and one that’s far from foolproof a sentiment we have regarding other infotainment systems. In particular, CUE’s haptic feedback isn’t always predictable, and its natural-language recognition fails us often enough to resort to smartphone-based Google Maps. But it’s a dramatic-looking setup with some fascinating features worth learning: there’s a big 8.0-inch screen that displays navigation, audio, climate, and phone functions, linked to a second screen between the gauges, controlled by voice or by steering-wheel controls. Navigation integrates with CUE, but it’s an option on base versions of the CTS. The CUE system also includes text message alerts for 2015, and there’s an available wireless DockSpot charging pad for mobile devices, too. And, the CTS now has a perpendicular self-parking feature available, too.
The 2015 CTS has grown up and out into true mid-size dimensions, making back-to-back comparisons with E-Classes and 5-Series and XF easier. It’s 195.5 inches long overall 4.1 inches longer than before and the wheelbase is 114.6 inches, an increase of 1.1 inches. The roofline’s lower by an inch, to 57.2 inches, and that has as great an effect on its five-passenger utility as the boost in rear-seat space.
2015 Cadillac CTS Engine
Most of our time with the CTS has been spent on the road with the six-cylinder cars, both with GM’s Magnetic Ride Control (MRC) suspension. That system, which uses dampers filled with magnetically charged fluid, able to change stiffness in milliseconds, is also in its third generation, and it’s shared with the new Corvette Stingray. The CTS’ magnetic dampers deliver on what was promised ten, twenty years ago, that electronics could deliver smooth and agreeable ride quality one moment, and sportscar-firm damping the next. More supple than the shorter ATS thanks to more wheelbase, the CTS is never floaty or uncontrolled. It also has sweetly tuned electric power steering and a remarkable sense of stability, just like its compact companion.
There’s chiseled sheetmetal and an upscale interior; engines include a 2.0-liter turbo four, an optional 3.6-liter V-6, and a twin-turbo 3.6-liter V-6 in the Vsport. Rear-wheel drive is standard; all-wheel drive is optional. It’s the best-handling car in the segment, helping it earn a spot on our 10Best list.
Three engines frame the CTS’s argument in the mid-size luxury debate. The base powerplant is the same 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, rated at 272 horsepower, coupled to a six-speed automatic with rear- or all-wheel drive. It’s a well-sorted base car, with light-touch electric power steering, but even with active noise cancellation, it’s more gruff than the turbo four from BMW.
Cadillac’s ever-present 3.6-liter V-6 checks into the mid-line CTS with 321 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque, and a choice of rear- or all-wheel drive. All-wheel-drive cars get same six-speed automatic with paddles, but a new eight-speed, paddle-shifted automatic comes with rear-drive versions. It’s a more fitting drivetrain for a mid-size Cadillac, quick enough to throw off 6-seconds runs to 60 mph.
