New details are starting to emerge about the 2014 Cadillac CTS.
Set to go on sale next year, the model will ride on an extended version of the Alpha platform which currently underpins the ATS. It will be slightly larger than today's model, so expect it to positioned as a proper competitor to the Audi A6, BMW 5-Series and Mercedes E-Class.
Engine options remain unconfirmed, but choices are expected to include:
- A 2.5-liter four-cylinder with 200 hp (149 kW / 203 PS) and 188 lb-ft (255 Nm) of torque.
- A turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 270 hp (201 kW / 274 PS) and 260 lb-ft (353 Nm) of torque.
- A 3.6-liter V6 engine with 320 hp (239 kW / 324 PS) and 267 lb-ft (362 Nm) of torque.
A diesel engine will eventually be offered in Europe, but not at launch. Furthermore, the CTS-V is expected to retain its supercharged 6.2-liter V8 that currently develops 556 hp (415 kW / 564 PS) and 551 lb-ft (747 Nm) of torque.
