2014 Cadillac CTS Sedan Is 1 Millionth Caddy Built

Follow Nelson

The 2014 Cadillac CTS packages grand design with impressive performance (in the Vsport model), building on the car that almost single-handedly revived the brand's reputation for design and excellence. Now it bears the honor of being the one-millionth Cadillac ever built.

Rolled off the line at the Lansing Grand River Assembly Plant this morning, the Red Obsession Tintcoat-colored CTS is one of an early run of the car produced ahead of its on-sale date in October. The Lansing Grand River plant has built every CTS ever made.

"One million Michigan-made Cadillacs is a great milestone for Lansing and for luxury car-building in America," said Bob Ferguson, Cadillac's global senior vice president. "Lansing Grand River is an essential ingredient of Cadillac’s growth. It is a benchmark for luxury car manufacturing in North America, which takes another step forward today with the launch of the new CTS."

The 2014 Cadillac CTS Vsport promises to be a highly dynamic entry in the mid-size luxury sedan segment, having logged a lap time of 8:14.10 at the famously difficult Nürburgring-Nordschleife. The new Vsport model sports a twin-turbocharged, 3.6-liter V-6 engine rated at 420 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque, accelerating the car to 60 mph in just 4.6 seconds.

Standard CTS models are available with a choice of a 272-horsepower 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, or a normally aspirated 321-horsepower 3.6-liter V-6. Both rear-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive versions are available. A six-speed automatic transmission is standard on four-cylinder and V-6 models; an eight-speed automatic transmission is available on V-6 models and standard on the CTS Vsport.

The 2014 CTS goes on sale this October at a starting price of $46,025. The 2014 CTS Vsport will start from $59,995.
