Cadillac CTS (2008 – 2010) At A Glance

2/5

+Lot of car for the money, particularly after the 2008 price cuts because it wasn't selling.

-Didn't sell well and only one batch seems to have imported which means that a 2009 reg might have been built in 2007

Insurance Groups are between 37–50
On average it achieves 94% of the official MPG figure

2008 Cadillac CTS launched in the UK in January 2007. Features GM’s new 3.6-litre direct-injection V6 VVT engine, delivering an estimated 300 hp (223 kW) and 366 Nm (270 lb ft) of torque. The 300 hp engine will be the top-level engine option for the 2008 CTS, joining the existing 2.8L V6 and the 258 hp 3.6L V6. Designed to operate with regular unleaded petrol, the new 3.6-litre direct-injection V6 produces power similar to many V8 engines, but with much better fuel economy. Fuel is delivered directly to the combustion chamber to create a more complete burn of the air/fuel mixture. Less fuel is required to produce the equivalent horsepower, especially at normal cruising speeds, in comparison to a conventional port-injection combustion system. 

For the first time, the 2008 CTS was available in both rear- and all-wheel drive configurations. Additionally, the transmission lineup now consists only of six-speed units: an Aisin six-speed manual or – new for CTS – a Hydra-Matic 6L50 six-speed automatic.
