An all-new generation of the Cadillac CTS, the car that has almost single-handily saved Cadillac’s premium image, is just around the corner. To make the wait less painful for avid fans of the brand, GM has announced several updates for the current model for the 2013 model year. The 2013 CTS and CTS-V receive some new equipment, as well as some minor styling tweaks.
Affecting all CTS modes, including the sedan, coupe and wagon, the 2013 updates include a revised front grille and a selection of new exterior colors (Glacier Blue Metallic, Silver Coast Metallic and Summer Gold Metallic). As for equipment, the adaptive remote vehicle starting system is now standard on all models. There were no changes made to the available powertrains.
The CTS-V variants of all three models now get new two-piece front brake rotors and a new Glacier Blue Metallic exterior color. Under the hood is the same old 556-hp 6.2-liter V8 that can be had with either a six-speed manual transmission or a six-speed automatic, allowing for a 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) run of 3.9 seconds in the sedan and coupe. GM says the new brake rotors are lighter, offer greater resistance to warping and last longer.
