2010 Cadillac CTS4 3.6L Sport Wagon

You would have to have lived your entire life in a cave in the farthest deepest recesses of the Sahara Desert to have never heard of Cadillac. If you are 50 years old or older, you clearly remember the status that carried the family coat of arms of the aristocrat who founded Detroit in 1701, Antoine de La Mothe, Sieur de Cadillac. If you owned and drove a Cadillac, you had made it to the top.

The present CTS is paving the way for the future of Cadillac and for the Cadillac of the future.

Oh, how things can change! Without going into full details on the history of Cadillac, suffice it to state that when the times were good, the times were good and when things went sour, well, you get the point. The 80s and 90s were riddled with poor decisions, awful cars and a lack of vision for the storied brand. Only in 2003 did Cadillac have a breakthrough; the CTS was born. I am purposely overlooking the Catera and never mind the Escalade…

The new beginning
In actuality, the CTS came into its own for the 2008 model year. Totally redesigned, reconfigured and reengineered, the present CTS is paving the way for the future of Cadillac and for the Cadillac of the future. Bold and dynamic are only two of the adjectives that can be used to describe the new face of Cadillac with its oversized grille, lights and generous servings of tasteful chrome. Although the sedan could have stood alone in showrooms, Cadillac did the German thing: the multiplication of body styles.

And one of them is the wagon (there’s a coupe in there somewhere, too…). In case you did not know, I love wagons, therefore the CTS wagon is my favourite of the lot. I think that this brave move is indicative of Cadillac’s intentions: they’re not backing down from the competition, they will plainly stick to ’em!

I am all over this car’s hyper-extended taillights, tight narrow hatch and nearly flush roof rails like bees on honey. Where I’m concerned, the wagon is the perfect expression of the CTS’ sporty front end and choppy character lines. Yes, she’s a beaut!

The 3.6L is powerful and willing to get the 1,900-kg (4,200-lb) car up to speed.
