The new Cadillac CTS right-hand drive sport saloon, which makes its public debut at the British International Motorshow, goes on sale at Cadillac retailers from September 1 priced at £26,995 for the 211PS 2.8-litre V6 VVT model and £32,995 for the 311PS 3.6-litre VVT direct injection V6.
Both models will be mated to a six-speed automatic transmission with a floor selector, the larger engine coming with paddle shift controls.
The model range will be joined by an advanced 2.9-litre V6 diesel engine in 2009.
Director in charge, Cadillac UK, Jonathan Nash, said: “The launch of the right-hand drive new Cadillac CTS marks a major step forward for the Cadillac brand in the UK.
“We believe the focus on dramatic design, craftsmanship and the class leading technologies will ensure the CTS is a desirable, exclusive alternative in today’s premium car market.”
Both rear-wheel drive sport saloon models come with traction control and a limited slip differential, and feature a single premium ‘Sport Luxury’ trim level with a class-leading amount of standard equipment.
The high level of specification of the new Cadillac CTS means that the options list will consist of only three items: metallic or premium metallic exterior paint finish, electric sunroof and ‘Sapele Pommele’ wood interior trim finish.
