You know what they say that there is nothing like an accident? This is pretty much what happened with the next-generation Cadillac CTS, as people say General Motor “accidentally” dropped an image of the next CTS online, but we don’t believe in accidents. The "accidental" image appeared online, while Cadillac unveiled theELR winter chassis testing.
In fact, this sounds pretty much like a confirmation of the previous rumors: the new-generation CTS will be unveiled sometime this year and the production will begin at the Lansing Grand River Assembly plant in September of 2013.
The second-generation Cadillac CTS will move from the current Sigma platform to GM’s new Alpha platform. Under the hood, we will see a lineup of new engines: the standard model will get a 270-horsepower, 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine borrowed from the ATS and the top version will keep the current 3.6-liter V6 engine. The CTS-V version could use a 6.2-liter V8 engine with an output of more than 556 horsepower.
