The CTS-V is a version of the Cadillac CTS that is a high-performance alternative. It has 3 body styles that include a 4-door sedan, a 5-door sport wagon and a 2-door coupe. Depending on who you talk to the CTS-V may be regarded as the top-of-the-line trim level. However, the 5 trim levels of the 2017 Cadillac CTS Sedan are the base CTS, the Luxury, the Premium Luxury, the V-Sport and the V-Sport Premium Luxury.
The base CTS trim has a 268 hp, turbocharged 4-cylinder engine.

It also has a Driver Awareness package which includes rain-sensing wipers, automatic high beams, forward collision alert, lane keeping assist, lane-change alert, lane departure warning, blind-spot monitor, and rear cross-traffic alert. A Safety Alert seat that vibrates if there is a possible collision about to happen is also included.
The Premium Luxury trim comes standard with a V6 engine that produces 335 hp. It also adds with adaptive suspension, 18 inch wheels, three-zone climate control, rear camera mirror, power rear sunshade, heated rear seats, a self-parking system, a 360-degree backup camera, and illuminated door handles.
The CTS V-Sport has a 6-cylinder turbocharged engine. It has everything found on the Luxury trim except the sunroof. It adds 18 inch wheels equipped with summer tires, a sport-tuned suspension and steering system, upgraded brakes, upgraded cooling system, the self-parking system, a track mode for high-performance driving, and an electronic limited-slip rear differential. The top CTS V-Sport Premium Luxury trim adds the sunroof along with the standard Premium Luxury's features that are not already on the base V-Sport trim.
The 2017 Cadillac CTS Sedan base engine turns in an EPA fuel economy of 22 mpg in city driving and 30 mpg on highway driving. If the vehicle has all-wheel drive, the fuel economy drops by 1 mpg. The V6 engine with rear-wheel drive delivers 20 mpg in city driving and 30 mpg on the highway.
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Cadillac CTS invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here.)
Note: All Cadillac CTS MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
