The new twin turbo 3.6L V6 offers 420 hp / 430 lb ft of torque in the CTS Vsport, slightly less in the AWD XTS offering. This engine line seems ideal in this application, offering good power while still retaining nice fuel economy — 25 mpg highway.
Overall the new CTS presents itself as a tailored suit –much more of a personal luxury sedan than the previous model. More style, more personality. Waiting to see the ATS-V, CTS-V, and resale on the ELR, but I could see getting a lightly used CTS Vsport to replace my STS-V when the time comes.
