Cadillac CTS family of sporty sedans are coming up with the advanced features and looks in 2017 Cadillac CTS next year, announced by Cadillac CEO at Detroit auto show. This car is developing exclusively not for the sake of technology but to please the self driving experience. Advanced technology is just an add on like cherry on the cake. First CTS was launched in 2003. Since then, Cadillac has given cut throat competition to its German rivals. Some of them worth mentioning are Mercedes Benz E Class, BMW 5 Series and Audi A6. Now the market is more volatile with the upgradations such as AMG series by Mercedes, M series by BMW, and RS series by Audi. Cadillac is performing well among its segment.
2017 Cadillac CTS – Unique Feature:
Cadillac claims that it is going to be the first brand to bring vehicle to vehicle (V2V) communication technology to production with its 2017 Cadillac CTS. This technology connects car via Wi-Fi signals, allowing them to share information about speed, location, safety, and other necessary data. To explain this, a hypothetical example was set where a truck is followed by Cadillac and both of them are connected with V2V technology. While moving on the streets, cameras on the truck took pictures of Cadillac which were shown at Cadillac’s digital display.
To make the sedan sportier a regular chassis has been given including stiffer springs and larger anti roll bars. In the front suspension, using two lower links instead of one control arm quickens steering response. Iron brakes of diameter 15.4 and 14.4 inches are enough to control the beast.
Tires are categorized as pilot super sport tires- 265/35 front and 295/30 rear. 2017 Cadillac CTS has only one suspension. There are no upgrades with wheels and carbon ceramic brakes. The body is carved out to reduce atmospheric pressure on the car. Angular headlights lit up on the LED technology are a rather common feature to be expected from such a car. On both the sides, a narrow space has been left out while carving to maintain the flow of air. Inside the car is the dynamic design of dashboard and switches. Premium quality seats and synchronized interphase. Legroom is more than enough for grown up adults with huge space for cargo. So riding a 2017 Cadillac CTS will be a matter of status and pleasure.
