Official: Here's the 2014 Cadillac CTS!

Several hours after a few teasers of the 2014 Cadillac CTS appeared on the web, the same flickr page now revealed what appears to be the official images of the CTS that will have its public presentation at the New York International Auto Show. In these images we can now see the new medium size luxury sedan in all its glory.

The new car looks longer, lower and wider, but will need to see the official numbers from Cadillac to confirm this. We do now is this is an evolution of the Art & Science design philosophy the North American company uses to inspire their models.

Like i said before, the engine lineup was already confirmed by Cadillac and consisted of a 3.6 liter twin-turbo V6 producing 420hp (313kW) and 583Nm (430lb/ft) of torque connected exclusively to an eight-speed automatic gearbox, a naturally aspirated 3.6 liter V6 with 321hp, and a 2.0 liter turbocharged engine producing 272hp.

The 3.6 liter twin-turbo V6 has an estimated top speed of around 274km/h (170mph) and the acceleration from standstill to 60mph (96.6km/h) will be done in 4.6 seconds. Read the rest here.
