In the automotive world, first impressions are truly everything.
The newly redesigned 2008 Cadillac CTS extends an astoundingly brilliant first impression – though a milestone in luxury, the first generation CTS (launched in 2002) simply can’t compare to this bad boy. Power from GM’s new 3.6-liter, direct-injection V6 engine helps the CTS maintain a sports car feel, while the upgraded interior never lets you forget you’re driving a luxury sedan. Elegant upholstery and Cadillac’s “thin-seat” technology offers passengers the maximum amount of comfort, while the impressive 204-horsepower and precise handling put you behind the wheel of a true “driver’s” car.
Perhaps the most noticeable change to the CTS is the modernized front, now a subtle and intriguing blend of curves and angles, with the Cadillac crest nestled firmly in the dual-textured grill. The ride is made even more comfortable with a Bose sound system and XM Satellite Radio. In addition, the optional navigation and audio systems also feature a USB port for MP3 players and a 40GB hard drive for storing your favorite music. Is there anything Cadillac can’t do?
