ATS Cadillac's first entry into the small luxury
car segment. Expect the base model to use a 2.0 liter turbo four
cylinder engine boasting 270-hp and 295 lb.-ft of torque. A 3.6
liter direct injected V6, twin turbo 3.0 liter V6 and V8* will be
optional (* V-Series only).
CTS Once offered
exclusively as a sedan, the CTS lineup has grown in the past few
years to include a wagon and a coupe. All three body styles are
available in V-Series performance versions, which carry the name
CTS-V. Because of its size, the CTS, which seats four in coupe form
and five otherwise, arguably competes both with BMW's 3 and 5
Series, Audi's A4 and A6 and Mercedes' C- and E-Classes.
DTS The DTS, formerly the DeVille, is a
front-wheel-drive alternative in Cadillac's luxury sedan lineup. It
competes with the Lincoln MKS, Volvo S80 and Chrysler 300C. The DTS
can seat five or six.
ESCALADE The full-size Cadillac Escalade SUV has
appealed to celebrities and affluent 20-somethings since 2001, when
a flashier version debuted. Its competitors include the Lincoln
Navigator, Lexus LX 570, Infiniti QX56 and other luxury SUVs. In the
spirit of excess, the Escalade boasts available 22-inch wheels and a
6.2-liter V-8 with more than 400 horsepower. It can be configured to
seat up to eight people and is available with rear- or all-wheel
SRX The SRX is a midsize five-seat crossover built
on a front-wheel-drive platform. All-wheel drive is optional.
Competitors include the Acura MDX, Lexus RX and Lincoln MKX.
STS Cadillac's midsize sport sedan, the STS,
features a powerful V-6 and a variety of high-tech safety options.
The STS competes with the BMW 5 Series, Lincoln MKS and Hyundai
XLR, Cadillac's retractable-hardtop coupe, is a luxury roadster with
a performance-oriented chassis and structure. The XLR competes with
the Jaguar XK and the BMW 6 Series.
XTS The XTS is Cadillac's all-new full-size sedan, which replaces
both the DTS and STS. Though it hasn't been priced as of this
writing, it will probably be somewhere between midsize luxury sedans
like the Audi A6 and BMW 5 Series and these competitors' full-size
sedans, the A8 and 7 Series, respectively. The XTS' exterior size,
likewise, fits among these large cars, though it boasts
above-average interior volume.
