Cadillac has been known for over 100 years for their unique luxury ride, the only difference in the 2003 Cadillac CTS and other Cadillacís from the past is perhaps its European performance. The CTS offers itís younger target audience a rear-wheel drive Cadillac, instead of the long running front-wheel drive Cadillac. Replacing the Cadillac Catera, which in all honesty never made much headway with the Cadillac crowd.
This new and improved European want-to-be is nice. And best of all it looks and acts like a Cadillac, unlike the forerunner the
Catera. Putting itself in classes with both the BMW and the Mercedes not to mention the Audi and Lexus, this American soon to be classic offers something these foreign made rivals donít- the stamp of ďAmerican MadeĒ.
Cadillacís era or ďArt and ScienceĒ was marked by the introduction of this all new 2003 Cadillac CTS. Carrying only the remnants of the egg crate shaped grille, this new Cadillac is completely overhauled. Sharper, straighter lines are featured on this new Caddie, not to mention some massive head light equipment. Unlike the Catera, this car is precise, shedding those rounded corners and feminine lines.
Although, this car is made in the good ole USA, the Cadillac engineers used a BMW 5 Series as a performance benchmark. What does this mean? It means that you
get the look and feel of luxury American made Caddies with the performance of a European sedan.
The suspension on this new Cadillac is better than ever before, as well. Combine that with steering accuracy and a top notch braking system and you have
one of the best made American vehicles with the exception of the sports car, Corvette. But as far as bang for your buck, the 2003 Cadillac CTS came in just
under thirty thousand, not bad, for the second best American made car.
