The all-new Cadillac CTS has been revealed in full, thanks to more leaked images, one day before its official unveiling at the New York auto show.

Showing the car in full, the latest images of the Cadillac CTS follow yesterday’s leaked teaser images, and were again leaked, this time published by USA Today.

Cadillac CTS - 1

The mid-size luxury sedan retains the strong, sturdy silhouette of previous generations but has become sleeker with sharp character lines along the top and bottom of the doors, a prominent bonnet, revised chrome-framed front grille with fewer slats and new bumper-to-guard LEDs.

The rear too is more angular with tail-lights that now sit below the line of the rear LED-infused boot lid spoiler, a rear badge inset into a chrome strip positioned above a steeply framed number plate surround and dual chrome exhausts.

Cadillac CTS - 2

Inside, a mix of leather, suede and woodgrain trims combine with leather seats, a multi-function steering wheel and a touchscreen similar to the eight-inch display unit seen in the cabin of the new Holden VF Commodore, with app icons from General Motors’ MyLink infotainment system.

Cadillac CTS - 5

While not pictured sitting between the CTS’s strut tops, the new Cadillac will offer a 313kW/583Nm twin-turbocharged 3.6-litre V6 powerplant tied to an eight-speed automatic transmission when it goes on sale in the US later this year.

    In before some fantasist suggest GM re-badge it as a Holden Commodore for great victory down-under!

    • Shak

      That suggestion may actually be the future of the Commodore. If the Commodore is staying RWD, then Alpha + is most likely the platform it’ll ride on.

      • Rocket

        Would rather see a Commodore RWD using this platform than some FWD platform like the Malibu.

        • Shak

          You and me both mate.

  • Robert Ryan

    Loks like a Mercedes clone from those side angle shots.

    • zej

      Yeah definately. It’s those round wheels, door handles in the doors and windows just below the roofline.

  • Able

    And they say Caddy wouldn’t sell here. That is stunning!

    • Shak

      I think Caddy would do better than Opel. They wouldn’t tread on Holden’s toes, and they have an SUV, and as we know Luxury SUV’s are like gold in Oz.

      • Karl Sass

        To be honest, I thought Opel would’ve done better than they have. I think it’s just a cluttered market. I never used to like Caddy, but they’re certainly a unique car and I’m really liking this.  

        • Able

          I don’t see why people think that new brands to Australia will suddenly do well. They’re new, people have never heard of the badge, what will residual values be like, are they reliable, etc. There are many questions associated with new brands and even with budget brands like Great Wall, they still aren’t covering the streets. I love the new Opels, but I’d not buy one.  

          • Karl Sass

            To be fair the the Astra name is familiar to Australians, but I get what you’re saying. I thinking seeing the Astra name on an unfamiliar car could be confusing people.  

      • Robert Ryan

         Except it is no Landcruiser not very good Off Road.

        • Robert Ryan

          Or Discovery. Or G-Class.

  • Deleted123

    It looks just like a E-class from the front quarter view!

  • Vins

    Finally a rather good looking US car

    • Rocket

      Mustang, Camaro, Charger are all good looking cars but lack the refinement of this model and hopefully we will get all these models one day.

    Looks great

  • John Mc

    I’d buy this in a flash.

  • pixxxels

    It appears Caddy have decided to mature the CTS a little in order to bring the fight to the Germans. Thankfully they haven’t gone too bland. Pretty impressive design actually. I’m usually not one for LEDs but that Ciel-style cascading look is sweet.

  • Zaccy16

    Not bad looking but still the americans main design tool is a rular, too many chintzy details, bit like the VF crummerdore!

    • Sumpguard

        You need to get over your Chintzy bull dust Zaccy.  It’s old and boring.

         The car looks great. Well done Caddy!

      • Zaccy16

        I think you would be at home in florida driving your cadillac to bingo sumpy!

        • Sumpguard

          ….and you’d be at home in a nut farm Zaccy.

    • Anarchy

      Zaccy in case you didn’t know, Cadillac has always been about razor-sharp lines. They have gone softer on the ATS and sharper on the CTS to differentiate between the two. Well done I will say, I like it a lot.

      Rular and pensil 

  • FezzyFezz

    Thumbs up! Definitely some styling cues similar to the Ciel concept.

  • Mick

    I like Cadillac, a high quality alternative to the Germans now. Would love to see the CTS and ATS on sale here.

    • Robert Ryan

       Really. They are floundering in their own market to the Germans.

  • Артём

    Try the cadillac in iRacing

  • Peanut

    Bring back the big fins. The best Cadilacs were the ones in the late 50′s. Art on wheels.

  • PROJET-L

    They look to have got their mojo back with this one.
    American elegance which harks back to the 65-69 era.

  • F1orce

    Looks American!! Classic elegance i would say 

    Finally, so tired from all these ‘euro styled’ cars these days.. 

  • bd

    The front end looks nice (more aggressive than the ATS), but the rear is too bland (esp. the taillights).

    Overall, a good design and one that looks sharper than the German RWD midsizers, nevermind the Japanese.
