2014 Cadillac CTS 2.0T Reviews
We've fallen for the turbo charged and naturally-aspirated V6 versions of Cadillac's third gen CTS sedan. Nevertheless, the redesigned 5-set combatant and 10Greatest victor additionally includes a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder that aids hold down the fresh Cad's beginning cost, that will be high enough to drop over.
The 272-hp 2.0T is typical to the base-rung CTS. At $46,025, this CTS continues to be $6035 higher than last year's foundation automobile, which contained a 270-hp 3.0-liter v 6.
As we've seen in the ATS, yet, the engine's result is choppy and fast tapers off after dark 5500-rpm horse-power peak. While it transfers the automobile off smartly with nominal slowdown, the vulgar, droning sounds it emits under load provide little incentive to goose the accelerator.
We nevertheless did, though, averaging 1 7 mpg in a short and competitive stint. Truly, the 2.0-litre's joined EPA score of 2 3 mpg is just one mpg a lot better in relation to the 3.6's, but having its six-speed automatic and rear-wheel-drive (four wheel drive provides $2,000 and about 150 lbs), our check car taken 108 less pounds when compared to a similar back-push six-cylinder version and was almost as fast.
The 2.0T trailed the v6 by two-tenths of a second-to both 60-mph along with the quarter mile mark, owning a 6.2 and 14.8 at 9 5 miles per hour, respectively. Top velocity is restricted to 133 miles per hour versus the V6's 144, with both autos showing similar managing and braking superiority.
At first, the 2.0T seems to save $8600 over the v 6 CTS ($54,625 with its typical Luxurious bundle). Yet, nearly all of the V6's fancier gear isn't accessible in the entrylevel 2.0T version.
The 2.0T tops out using the $16,700 Premium bundle seen here, providing magnetorheological dampers, adaptive cruise, and virtually everything else. Our examiner also had the $1650 leather-inside update with carbon trimming and red accents, in addition to $750 18-inch wheels, to get a breathless total of $65,125. For four-cylinders.
The 2.0T stimulates the CTS nicely enough but falls lacking the large bar that Cadillac has place for the automobile, which likewise endures some cottage busyness and irksome touch screen controls. With the 2.0T, the get-what-you-spend-for asymptote degrees away using the Luxurious package.
