2018 Cadillac CTS Sedan Performance

Two performance options are available on the 2018 Cadillac CTS Sedan. As a standard on the two lowest trim levels, you’ll find a 2.0-liter Turbo four-cylinder engine; this engine is paired to the streamlined eight-speed automatic transmission, producing 268 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. Standard on the top three trims, and available on the Luxury, is a 3.6-liter Twin-Turbo V6 engine, also paired to the eight-speed automatic. This stronger powertrain produces an impressive 420 horsepower and 430 lb-ft of torque.

2018 Cadillac CTS Sedan Efficiency

If you decide to opt for a lower trim level, equipped with the four-cylinder engine, you can expect a higher level of efficiency on your Cadillac CTS Sedan. Models equipped with the four-cylinder earn an estimated 22 mpg in the city, 30 mpg on the highway, and 25 mpg combined. Upper V-Sport trims, equipped with the stronger V6, lose a significant amount of their efficiency. Behind the wheel of either V-Sport model, you can expect to earn an estimated 16 mpg in the city, 24 mpg on the highway, and 19 mpg combined.
