Tweaks in the Design of the 2017 Cadillac CTS

The next year’s Cadillac CTS was caught by paparazzi during testing. This happened near Milford Proving Grounds of GM.

The model was without camouflage. The facelifted offering is virtually the same with the predecessor. During a closer inspection we found out that the vehicle received a modestly revised enclosure mimicking the grille of the CT6 and XT5. Restyled exhaust tips and a new rear bumper can be found at the vehicle’s rear end.

The car will not be seriously changed from the inside. An upgraded CUE infotainment set-up is waiting for the model under consideration. Drivers will be glad to see driver assistance features and some new options.

The options for engines will be carried over. Clients will be able to choose between two 3.6-litre six-cylinders and a 2.0-litre turbocharged V4. The entry-level motor generates 268 hp and torque of 295 pound-feet. Meanwhile, the mid-level option is a 3.6-litre six-cylinder motor generating 335 hp and torque of 285 lb-ft. customers who want more power can choose the CTS Vsport with a 3.6-litre biturbo six-cylinder. This unit produces 420 hp and torque of 430 lb-ft.

Then the automaker could present a plug-in hybrid version and an upgraded CTS-V with an innovated 10-speed automatic gear-box.

The next year’s Cadillac CTS will enter production sometime later in 2016. Expect an official opening this summer.
