2004 Cadillac CTS Overview

The biggest update for the Cadillac CTS in 2004 came with the introduction of the CTS-V, a beefed-version of the original equipped with a 5.7 L, 400 hp V8 engine. In addition, drivers had the option to upgrade to a 3.6 L, 255 hp V6 powertrain. Otherwise, the CTS retains the same general features in its second year of production. The standard 3.2 L, 220 hp V6 comes with standard 5 speed manual transmission and optional 5 speed automatic.

In terms of fuel consumption, expect to get 18 mpg in the city and 27 on the highway. This car has 1 trim that sports 4 doors, seats 5, and offers standard air conditioning, power windows, power door locks, power/leather seats, cd player, ABS brakes and traction control. Options include stability control, navigation system, and sunroof.

Overall, the CTS gets props for a roomy interior, capable powertrain, and unique, angular look. On the other hand, the drive feels a little clunky and the interior design could use some work. Think of the 2004 CTS as a decent domestic sport sedan and it won't disappoint.
