Introduced last year, the rear-drive STS sedan is a somewhat larger and sportier version of the CTS with which it shares its "Sigma" platform. The base model comes powered by a 225-horsepower 3.6-liter V-6 engine, while a 320-horsepower Northstar 4.6-liter V-8 is also available. Both are mated to a five-speed automatic transmission. A high-performance STS-V version is new for 2006 and comes powered by a supercharged 4.4-liter Northstar V-8 engine that generates a blazing 469 horsepower and can reach 60 mph. from a standing start in less than five seconds. That powerplant drives the rear wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission with a "Driver Shift Control" function for quasi-manual operation. The STS-V also rides on larger wheels and tires, with stiffer stabilizer bars and suspension springs, a quicker steering ratio, and a specifically tuned chassis; Brembo brakes are included with larger rotors, pads, and calipers to help rein in all those added horses. All versions include four-channel StabiliTrak stability control and Magnetic Ride Control, along with a full array of amenities. For 2006, all-wheel drive becomes newly available with the V-6 engine for added traction and stability. A new premium Bose 5.1 Studio Surround Sound audio array is teamed with a navigation system in the V-8's 1SE option package. In addition, the STS comes in three new exterior colors.

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.
