(2004 model shown)


The dramatically styled entry-level rear-drive Cadillac offers a new entry-level model for 2005 that comes powered by a 2.8-liter V-6 engine that nets 210 horsepower. The CTS' base powertrain remains a 220-horsepower, 3.2-liter V-6 that's teamed with a five-speed-manual gearbox. Last year, a 3.6-liter V-6 engine with variable valve timing and a dual-outlet performance exhaust was made newly available; for 2005 it can be mated to a six-speed manual transmission. A top CTS-V version includes a 400-horsepower 5.7-liter V-8, the six-speed manual transmission and other upgrades. With a zero-to-60 mph time at less than five seconds, this is said to be Cadillac's quickest sedan ever. Front-side and side-curtain airbags and GM's OnStar communication system are among its many standard features, and a generous options list includes StabiliTrak stability control, a GPS navigation system, and XM satellite radio.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
