2011 Cadillac Cts
The 2011 Cadillac CTS drives beautifully, looks and feels extremely modern and has all the feature content an American driver is looking for. Two big packages are available for The 2011 Cadillac Cts. The CTS Luxury Package includes an eight-way power adjustable passenger seat, audible theft deterrent system, Zebrano wood trim, memory package, rear-view mirror compass, and a three-channel programmable garage door opener with electronic voice recorder. The Luxury Sport Package includes all of those features plus the Stabilitrak 2.0 chassis control system, sport-tuned suspension, high-performance brake linings, load-leveling rear suspension, speed-sensitive power steering, and 17-inch polished wheels with V-rated tires.
Other options on our test car included the five-speed electronic automatic transmission, a Bose premium sound system with cassette/six-disc CD changer and CD-ROM-based navigation, 16-inch wheels, an engine block heater, heated front seats, express-open sunroof, xenon high-intensity discharge headlamps and a split-folding rear seat.
Whether buyers will opt for the five-speed manual transmission for truly sporty driving remains to be seen. But it is notable that Cadillac went to the trouble of developing the manual gearbox with German supplier Getrag. It says clearly that Cadillac sees The 2011 Cadillac Cts as a sports sedan. It’s a good transmission, whether anyone buys it or not. Inside, The 2011 Cadillac Cts is as
different from the Catera as it is from the DeVille and Seville, with a much more European presentation of instrumentation and controls (after all, they are going to sell this car in Eastern and Western Europe, Japan, and the Middle East). In fact, The 2011 Cadillac Cts interior isn’t like anything else on the market today.
Done up in several high-tech textures (about two too many for our personal tastes), the dashboard and instrument panel are rendered in muted shades of gray with excellent, highly readable graphics. With a new chassis, a new body, a new engine, two new transmissions, a new factory and a new workforce, there is an awful lot that could go wrong with a car like The 2011 Cadillac Cts in its first year of production.
On the other hand, there is a lot that could go right, and that’s what we’re banking on when we recommend it as a car to be looked at and test driven if you are in the market for a entry luxury sports sedan. The center stack, where most of the adjusting is done, juts out proudly and prominently from the rest of the dash, with the elaborate GPS navigation system, when ordered, at the top center location.
