Production of the American sedan of business class Cadillac CTS, stopped 16 years after the start. The representative of the company Cadillac Tara Cunen confirmed this news on her official page in social networks.

Cadillac introduced the CTS luxury business sedan in 2003, showing off its brand new design style. A year later, Cadillac introduced the first version of the high-performance CTS-V, which was equipped with a 400-horsepower 5.7-liter V8. The second generation of the model received a more aggressive appearance, both inside and outside. The second-generation CTS also brought with it the second-generation CTS-V in three body styles – sedan, coupe and station wagon. Just appeared already familiar 6.2-liter V8 supercharged. The third and last generation debuted in 2014 with a new design, but in one body – a sedan.

Cadillac did not look for a receiver for CTS. The current CT5 and CT6 models will be positioned as other, separate models.

And Cadillac will not let fans of powerful cars – the company already offers the CT6-V with its 4.2-liter twin-turbocharged V8 called the Blackwing with 550 horsepower. The American luxury brand is also preparing a more powerful version for the CT5 sedan.[IP]&ua=[UA]&domain=[DOMAIN]&page=[PAGE]&secure=[SECURE]&language=[BROWSER_LANGUAGE]&bidfloor=[BIDFLOOR]&gdpr_consent=[GDPR_CONSENT]

Always sad when the model finishes production. For more than ten years, the CTS has been a beacon for American luxury sedans, and this car, which often tried to compete with its German rivals’ counterparts – sometimes it even worked well for him. But at least the Cadillac still believes in the sedan market.
