2019 Cadillac CTS near Dubuque IA

Vehicle Overview

The 2019 Cadillac CTS arrives just as the midsize luxury nameplate wraps up its third and last production cycle. As a result, it comes with no major changes over the previous model year. With outstanding handling, powerful engine choices, and a vast array of standard features, the 2019 CTS is going out with a bang. It is available in four trims: the base-level model, the Luxury, the Premium Luxury, and the V-Sport.

The 2019 CTS is designed and marketed as a midsize luxury sedan, with two rows of seats enough for up to five people. Passenger volume is measured at 97 cubic feet, and the trunk yields 13.7 cubic feet. Also standard are cloth seat surfaces, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, front-seat 8-way power adjustment, and a 2-position memory system for the driver’s seat. The CTS is upgraded at the Luxury trim level with leather seat trim, steering-wheel heating, front-seat heating and cooling, and 60/40 split-folding ability on the rear seat to enable expansion of cargo room. Added on the Premium Luxury and V-Sport are rear-seat heating. Standard comfort and convenience features on the CTS include cruise control, a 5.7-inch color driver information center, dual-zone automatic climate control, remote start, proximity keyless entry, push-button engine start, Bluetooth connectivity, the OnStar communications system, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a garage-door opener, wireless charging, a Wi-Fi hotspot, an 11-speaker Bose audio system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, a three-month trial subscription to SiriusXM radio, two USB ports and an audio jack for connecting portable media devices, and an 8-inch color multi-touch screen display with voice recognition. At the Luxury level, the CTS gets features such as a navigation system and a 13-speaker Bose surround-sound system (instead of the 11-speaker system). The Premium Luxury is the only trim with tri-zone automatic climate control and a head-up display.

At the base level, the 2019 CTS gets a sports-tuned suspension to balance comfort and performance. The suspension of the V-Sport, however, is geared towards performance for a tighter, more controlled ride. The Premium Luxury joins the V-Sport in getting Magnetic Ride Control for independent monitoring of each wheel to maintain ride quality. Brembo disc brakes and rotors on each wheel keep stopping distances as short as possible. And electric power steering is on board for precise turning and cornering.

Powertrain - Cadillac CTS specs near Dubuque IA

The standard workhorse on the 2019 Cadillac CTS is the LTG Ecotec, which is a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that produces 268 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. The larger and more powerful LGX—a 3.6-liter V6 that produces 335 horsepower and 285 lb-ft of torque—is optional on the Luxury and standard on the Premium Luxury. The V-Sport is the lone trim with the most powerful of the three engine choices: the LF3, which is a twin-turbocharged 3.6-liter V6 that pumps out 420 horsepower and 430 lb-ft of torque. All engines are paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission. While the LTG and LGX engines have automatic stop/start technology to eliminate idling at complete stops, the LF3 has an extra-capacity cooling system to keep operating temperatures in check. Rear-wheel drive is available on all four trims, with the appropriately named V-Sport adopting it as its standard drivetrain to optimize handling due to a more even front-to-rear weight distribution. All-wheel drive is available on the other three trims to maximize all-weather driving performance.

Safety - 2019 Cadillac CTS dealer

The airbag system on the 2019 CTS consists of two frontal impact airbags, two knee airbags (for the driver and front passenger), two side impact airbags, and two side curtain airbags. Other standard safety features include a rear vision camera with rear park assist, electronic stability control, traction control, LED daytime running lights, Teen Drive mode, and a theft-deterrent system. At the Luxury trim level, the CTS is loaded with a following distance indicator, forward collision alert, lane keep assist with lane departure warning, lane change alert with side blind zone alert, rear cross-traffic alert, and a safety alert seat reminder. The Premium Luxury and the V-Sport stand out with a surround vision camera (in place of the rear vision one), automatic parking assist (instead of rear park assist), and a rear camera mirror for a more expansive field of view.
