Expert Rating

5.0 (Excellent)
14 City / 19 Highway

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

2014 Cadillac CTS-V OVERVIEW

Cadillac’s high-performance collection aims to compete on the same playing field with top European luxury sports sedans and coupes. The CTS-V group hits the mark admirably.

What's New for 2014

Although Cadillac unveiled an all-new CTS for 2014, the V models remain unchanged from 2013.

Choosing Your Cadillac CTS-V

The first decision you’ll want to make will be body style. The CTS-V comes in three distinct versions:

All three come equipped with the same engine, a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 capable of 556 horsepower and 551 pound-feet of torque. However, you get a choice in transmissions.

  • A six-speed manual transmission
  • A six-speed automatic with Sport and Manual modes enhanced by steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters. Also included as standard only on automatic coupes is an adaptive remote start feature; this is optional for the sedan and wagon when equipped with the automatic.

The three body styles share one standard but well-equipped trim level that includes such luxuries as a Bose 10-speaker sound system, navigation system, heated front seats, and rear parking sensors and camera. A quirky exception: The sedan and wagon include 10-way power-adjustable front seats while the coupe’s seats offer only eight adjustments.

Available options are also similar across the board and include:

  • Recaro performance seats
  • A choice of red or yellow calipers on the standard Brembo brake system
  • 19-inch high-polished aluminum or satin-graphite wheels
  • A dealer-installed black chrome grille
  • Ventilated front seats

The CTS-V coupe also offers a Sport Blue interior package that includes:

  • Recaro performance seats with a special sueded-fabric insert
  • Sueded-microfiber accents on the steering wheel
  • Midnight Saepele Wood trim

This package is only available with certain exterior color choices.
