The redesigned 2014 CTS that reaches dealerships this fall is lower, longer, lighter and priced at more than $6,000 above its predecessor. It keeps the 3.6-liter engine and gets two new ones: the base 2.0-liter turbo and a 3.6-liter twin-turbo V-6, which will be combined with an eight-speed transmission and go into the new high-performance vSport model, slotted below the V series.|
A redesigned V-series model should arrive by early 2015 with one of GMís new V-8 engines under the hood. A coupe variant is further out -- possibly in 2015 as a 2016 model. A wagon or convertible isnít in the plans.
