2014 Cadillac CTS Named the Car of the Year by Motor Trend



The 2014 Cadillac CTS sedan has been named Motor Trend magazine’s Car of the Year for 2014.

“The all-new 2014 Cadillac CTS prevailed over one of the most competitive fields in recent memory because it best met our award’s key criteria,” said Motor Trend editor-in-chief Ed Loh.

Cadillac spokesman David Caldwell said, “We are absolutely excited to win this award. It’s just sensational, and it’s quite a difficult award to win. The selection process is a grueling one in which every significant new car in the world is tested ‘in battle.’

Caldwell said the Cadillac designers took lessons they learned from around the world and applied them to the CTS. It won the same award in 2008, but Cadillac didn’t rest on its laurels.

“The 2014 CTS is upgraded in every way,” Caldwell said. “I am talking about performance, luxury, technology and efficiency. Basically, it’s a whole new car where we wiped the slate clean.”

The main competition for the 2014 Cadillac CTS will be the BMW 5-Series, Mercedes E-Class, and the Audi A6. Most reviewers have found that the new CTS is a much better alternative to these competitors than the outgoing CTS model. The biggest problem with the 2013 CTS was that it was a "tweener"; somewhat smaller and significantly cheaper than its midsize competitors. The 2014 Cadillac CTS will create a clearer distinction between the entry-level, compact ATS and the midsize CTS.

GM is putting a great deal of effort into Cadillac, hoping to finally make a truly global luxury car that can hold its own against the Germans that dominate. The Cadillac ATS luxury compact won the North American Car of the Year from a panel of 50 journalists at the Detroit auto show in January, and the Tesla Model S electric sedan was the 2013 Motor Trend winner, so clearly GM has turned some heads among the professional critics.
