There’s a huge range of new cars to get excited about, and sadly the revamped 2014 Cadillac CTS is not one of them, for various reasons. One of those reasons is because it does not have the same style as its European counterparts, but the biggest issue is its price, as its more expensive than the outgoing model.
2014 Cadillac CTS starting price — it seems as though Cadillac has got carried away with some of the new features with the redesigned CTS, as it has suffered from something most consumers hate, and that is a price hike, and not a small one like the all-new Corvette Stingray over its predecessor. The new CTS will now cost you an extra $7,000 plus over the 2013 model.
That’s certainly a tough pill to swallow, but Cadillac said that they needed to increase the price because of the many improvements throughout the car, because they aim to take on rivals on a more level playing field, but have they done enough?
We say this because the BMW 5-Series and the Mercedes E-Class have never played fairly, as they have always brought better toys to the playground, but it does seem on paper that all three models will now be more evenly matched. However, it’s all well on good on paper, but the 2014 Cadillac CTS needs to deliver.
The starting price for the revamped Cadillac CTS is $46,025, compared to $47,800 for the 5-Series and $51,900 for the E-Class. Cadillac will offer a choice of two engines, the 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder with a turbocharger or a 3.6-liter V6, along with a choice of RWD or an AWD system.
It’s clear to see that the 2014 model is worth $7,000 more than the outgoing 2013 model, but it’s not exactly a looker, and you would be far better off spending an extra $6,000 and going for the E-Class instead.
