Redesigned Cadillac CTS named 2014 Motor Trend Car of the Year

Bill Jacobs Cadillac highlights excellence of new Cadillac CTS at Joliet showroom

JOLIET, Ill., Nov. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Sustained excellence is a rare feat in the automotive industry. With old cars falling out of favor and new models entering the marketplace each year, only a few vehicles have lasting success. The Cadillac CTS appears to be on its way to becoming one of those exceptional vehicles as it recently was named Motor Trend Car of the Year for the second time in six years.


Motor Trend's judges cited the 2014 Cadillac CTS' "responsive powertrains and masterful balance of smooth ride and sporty handling" as the fundamental reasoning behind selecting the mid-size luxury sedan for its Car of the Year designation. Chosen from a field of 22 vehicles, which was narrowed to a group of eight finalists after a series of professional automotive tests, the 2014 Cadillac CTS emerged as the most impressive vehicle in the group after excelling in Motor Trend's real-world road loop conditions.

With a redesign for the 2014 model year, the Cadillac CTS features a larger base, more pronounced exterior styling, and more interior features than its predecessor. Available in six trims and with four-cylinder and V-6 powertrain options, the Cadillac CTS comes standard with the Cadillac User Experience (CUE) infotainment interface, an 11-speaker Bose surround sound system, and a full slate of media connectivity options, among several other amenities.

The 2014 Motor Trend Car of the Year is available near Chicago, Ill. at Bill Jacobs Cadillac. With the latest releases from Cadillac and a complete selection of used cars, Bill Jacobs Cadillac has positioned itself as one of the most dependable Cadillac dealers in northern Illinois. In addition to its vehicle selection, Bill Jacobs Cadillac goes beyond the showroom by offering useful EV winter driving tips, automotive financing, and helpful vehicle comparisons.
