What Does CTS Stand for on Cadillac Models?

2019 Cadillac CTS-V

Looking at used Cadillac models in Long Island City and seeing the letters “CTS” on models like the CTS-V, wondering, “What does CTS stand for on Cadillac models”? CTS stands for Catera Touring Sedan. There’s a history to this name that’s worth discussing, and a lot more in store for the Cadillac sedan lineup’s future, even though the CTS has been discontinued. City Cadillac uncovers the meaning behind these three letters below for curious drivers!

What Does Cadillac CTS Stand For?: A Brief History 

In 2002, Cadillac did something they hadn’t done since 1988: they put a new manual transmission vehicle on the Astoria and Great Neck market. So, what does Cadillac CTS stand for now? The most recent CTS models offer a 6-speed automatic transmission and 8-speed automatic transmission, but you’ll still be able to find manual transmission on older pre-owned CTS models.

What Does Cadillac CTS Stand For?: Current Features 

Brooklyn drivers might not be able to get manual transmission on the newest Cadillac CTS vehicles (model year 2019), but they’ll be blessed with incredibly impressive features worthy of this legacy, including:

  • High-gloss Sapele wood trim
