Cadillac CTS History

The Cadillac CTS was first introduced in 2002 as a 2003 model. This was the first Cadillac to offer a manual transmission since 1988. Today, this model is only available with 6- and 8-speed automatic transmission, but the older models can be found with the original manual transmission. Current CTS models have come a long way adding luxury materials, upgrading Cadillac technology like the Cadillac User Experience (CUE) information and media control system, and even offering more powerful engine options.
