2013 Cadillac CTS Sport Wagon

The 2013 Cadillac CTS Sport Wagon is a progressive take on the classic American wagon body delivering style, function, and efficiency in the Coachella Valley. Offered as a well-equipped base model and three option collections, Luxury, Performance and Premium, all models offer seating for five or up to 58 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seat folded. CTS Touring and Performance packages which enhance the appearance and sporting driving feel are also available.

The CTS Touring Package edition is available on Luxury and Premium Collections with highlights including eighteen-inch painted pearl nickel wheels on the Luxury, or 19-inch polished aluminum wheels on the Premium. Microfiber suede-trimmed steering wheel rim and shift knob, sport alloy pedals, and chrome door handles are available on both collections. Rounding out the Luxury and Premium collections is a sport grille and V-Series center brake light, Midnight Sapele wood trim package, and microfiber suede seat inserts in Ebony or Light Titanium.

The Performance Package is included on the Luxury Collection when equipped with the Touring package and is standard on Performance and Premium Collections. This package features eighteen-inch aluminum wheels with all-season tires, multi-coat painted-finish wheels standard on Performance and high-polished wheels standard on Premium. Additionally there are high-intensity discharge headlamps, fog lamps, performance brakes, sport suspension and a limited-slip differential on all-wheel drive models.

A 3.0L direct-injected V-6 is the standard engine in Base and Luxury models and is rated at 270 horsepower. Along with direct injection technology, the 3.0L engine employs continuously variable valve timing to optimize power and fuel efficiency and to also reduce emissions. Highway fuel economy on 3.0L-equipped rear-wheel drive models is 27 mpg.

The CTS Sport Wagon’s 3.6L direct-injected V-6 is standard in the Performance and Premium Collections and delivers an SAE-certified 318 horsepower. Lightweight features help reduce overall weight for greater efficiency and a more favorable front-to-rear weight balance. Examples include a composite intake manifold that saves approximately 5.5 pounds over the weight of a comparable aluminum intake and an integrated cylinder head/exhaust manifold design that saves approximately 13 pounds per engine.

The Hydra-Matic 6L45 six-speed automatic transmission is standard on all CTS Sport Wagon RWD models. The 6L50 six-speed is featured on AWD models. The interior of the 2013 CTS emphasizes technical precision with hand-crafted details. An integrated center stack design, with a satin metallic finish, blends into the lower instrument panel that sweeps forward and away from front-seat occupants.

Available heated and ventilated seats incorporate “thin-seat” technology for maximum occupant comfort and enhanced rear-seat leg room. French stitching is also used throughout the interior, including the upper instrument panel, door inserts, seats and the shifter boot.

Available features include an audio system with navigation, including AM/FM stereo, CD/DVD player, MP3 playback, Bose Surround Sound with 10 speakers, 40-gig hard drive and USB with audio connectivity, which is standard on Premium and available on Luxury and Performance models. Bluetooth phone connectivity is standard on all models, as well as adaptive remote vehicle starting and steering wheel-mounted controls for audio, cruise and Bluetooth systems. Keyless entry and keyless start features are standard on Premium and available on Performance, while an ambient lighting package is standard on Luxury and Premium and available on Performance.

The 2013 CTS Sport Wagon is designed to enhance Cadillac’s reputation for providing safe occupant environments in luxury vehicles. Standard and available features include dual-stage driver front air bag, segment-first dual depth front passenger air bag, driver and front passenger side seat-mounted pelvic/thorax side air bags, roof-rail side curtain air bags with rollover protection technology that cover front and rear seating rows, front safety belt pretensioners, tire pressure monitoring system, a body structure with strategically placed high-strength steel, active head restraints for front seat occupants, ultrasonic rear parking assist, and a rearview camera system.

Continuous improvements have helped keep the Cadillac CTS at the top of customer consideration lists and earn critical praise. That legacy continues in Palm Springs and the Coachella Valley as the 2013 CTS Sport Wagon takes on all Southern California has to offer.
