Cadillac has called the 2006 Cadillac CTS their smallest of sedans available, replacing the rounded and poorly
received Catera. This new and improved Caddy offers the Cadillac driver a great looking car and power, power, and power. A new revised and sportier look appears on the 2006 CTS, not to mention performance packages like the new CTS
V-Series are available to those that like to live in the fast lane of life.
If CTS were on a menu, you would find that it is offered in a luxurious amount of flavors. For starters, the standard 2.8 model comes with a 210
horsepower 2.8 liter V6 and if thatís not enough torque for your buck, how about the 255 horsepower 3.6 liter V6.
If still your pallet seems a little to dry try the newest of the bunch, the all new CTS-V, which comes equipped with the 400 horsepower 6.0 liter V8 that
allows you to do 0-60 miles per hour in less than 4.6 seconds. This, by the way, claimed the title of champion at the SCCA Speed World GT Manufacturers
Championship. This car retails for around $50,000 and is some hot rod with lots of power.
The CTS is really a sharp looking styling car. I don't know if I would call it a distinctive Cadillac as it really has some fine angular lines that make
this car look really sleek.
I saw one the other day cruising down the street in Brooklyn and it really caught my attention. When the guy stopped at the light I pulled up next to him
and said "Sweet Ride" He laughed and hit the gas and just took off. I was amazed at the pickup the car had.
Standard equipment on the 2006 Cadillac CTS includes front and side airbags as well as head-protecting curtain side airbags. You will also find the state of the art braking system on these Cadillac models, as well as GMís OnStar assistance. For a little extra cash, you may opt for the voice activated navigation system, which is optional on the V6ís and standard on the V series.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration tested this vehicle for crash worthiness, happy to say, Cadillac once again proved themselves worthy in the field of safety, scoring at least a 4 out of a possible 5. It is no wonder, this state of the art vehicle rivals few.
