The 2011 Cadillac CTS 3.0L Base might represent the entry-level sedan in its range, but it comes loaded with standard equipment.
As its name implies the CTS Base is propelled by a 3.0-liter V6 engine that makes 270 hp and 223 lb-ft of torque. Though admirably refined, the small V6 has to work hard to get the hefty CTS going. A standard six-speed manual transmission provides excellent control, but most buyers will likely opt for the smooth 6L50 automatic gearbox. Courtesy of its rear-drive platform, the 2011 CTS 3.0L Base possesses excellent handling dynamics and a refined ride.
The 2011 CTS 3.0L Base offers a luxurious interior that's full of equipment. Standard dual-zone climate control is augmented by a power driver's seat, an AM/FM/CD stereo and an auto-dimming rear-view mirror. Notable options include a panoramic power sunroof and leatherette seats.

The 2011 Cadillac CTS 3.0L Luxury trim offers a significant upgrade in feature content compared to its entry-level sibling. While running gear remains the same, the CTS 3.0L Luxury sedan gets interior furnishings more appropriate for the upwardly mobile set.
Under the hood the CTS 3.0L Luxury shares its all-aluminum V6 with the Base trim. Making 270 hp and 223 lb-ft of torque, the 3.0-liter six-cylinder can be paired with either a manual or automatic gearbox. Both transmissions feature six speeds and send power to the rear wheels for excellent handling balance.
Inside the CTS 3.0L Luxury trim coddles buyers with supple power leather seats, dual-zone climate control and Bluetooth phone connectivity. Other upgrades over the base trim include a universal garage door opener, a memory function for the seats and an upgraded premium stereo with CD changer.

For those who live in snowy climates, the 2011 Cadillac CTS 3.0L Base AWD sedan offers the reassuring security of electronic all-wheel drive. The CTS's sophisticated AWD system was developed by component specialist Borg Warner and can send all of the engine's power to either end of the car.
Under the hood the CTS 3.0L Base AWD features an all-aluminum V6 motor that makes 270 hp and 223 lb-ft of torque. Though the high-tech V6 makes all the right noises, its slight torque deficit means the heavy CTS possesses only average acceleration. A smooth, refined six-speed automatic is the only transmission choice.
Standard equipment for the 2011 CTS 3.0L Base AWD includes a power driver's seat, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror and an excellent AM/FM/CD stereo that also offers XM satellite radio. The comprehensive suite of safety equipment includes front, side and curtain airbags, along with seatbelt pre-tensioners and standard stability control.

Though it's name implies otherwise, the 2011 CTS 3.0L Performance trim doesn't offer a measurable speed advantage over the more pedestrian CTS trims. Rather the CTS 3.0L Performance sedan gets a number of exterior upgrades that contribute to a sportier look.
Under the hood the 3.0-liter V6 engine makes good noises and revs smoothly, but its lack of torque means the CTS Performance trim has a bit of trouble living up to its name. Also contradictory is the lack of a manual gearbox; the CTS Performance gets a six-speed automatic as the only transmission choice.
Outside the CTS 3.0L Performance trim features 18-inch alloy wheels that improve both the car's looks and cornering ability. A sport-tuned suspension and xenon headlamps round out the package. Inside the standard equipment mirrors the CTS Luxury trim, while the longer options list is full of enticing upgrades like navigation, remote keyless start and ventilated seats.

For those in the snow belt, the 2011 Cadillac CTS 3.0L Luxury AWD sedan is a compelling alternative to an SUV or truck. With a high-tech AWD system developed by Borg Warner, the CTS can make even the diciest road conditions seem tame.
Powering the CTS 3.0L Luxury AWD is an all-aluminum V6 engine that makes 270 hp. While the high-revving motor makes good power at the top of the range, its lack of low-end torque (only 223 lb-ft are on offer) makes the heavy CTS Luxury AWD a bit sluggish off the line. Like all AWD CTSes the 3.0L Luxury gets a six-speed automatic gearbox as the sole transmission option.
Within its quiet, stylish cabin, the 2011 CTS Luxury AWD features a host of comfort and convenience features. Standard dual-zone climate control and an excellent AM/FM/CD stereo help pass the miles quickly, while power leather seats, ambient lighting and warm wood trim contribute to the ambiance inside.

The 2011 Cadillac CTS 3.6L Performance sedan gets a big upgrade in the engine room that finally does justice to its name. While 3.0L Performance trims lack the torque for spirited acceleration, this variant, with a punchy 3.6-liter direct-injection engine, gathers speed with much more enthusiasm.
Under the CTS 3.6L Performance's hood lies a direct-injection V6 with all-aluminum construction and variable valve timing. This motor generates a robust 304 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque, contributing mightily to the 3.6L Performance's vastly improved acceleration. Disappointingly, the larger engine mates only to the competent (but boring) six-speed 6L50 automatic. Cadillac has curiously deigned not to install a manual gearbox in its Performance trim.
Stepping inside the CTS 3.6L Performance, one notices the sporty optional Recaro bucket seats and supple standard leather trim. In addition to an AM/FM/CD stereo with AUX input, buyers have the option of upgrading to a hard-drive-based Navigation/stereo combo that can store hours of music within the car.

For 2011 Cadillac's CTS 3.0L Performance AWD sedan gives off the appearance of sportiness without, unfortunately, delivering the real thing. While admirably capable in bad weather (its high-tech Borg Warner AWD system can send all power to either end of the car), the CTS 3.0L Performance AWD just doesn't have enough power under its hood.
This trim is the most expensive 3.0-liter CTS that Cadillac offers, and as such it gets all kinds of standard equipment. The standard sport suspension package, along with larger 18-inch wheels, teams up with the AWD running gear to deliver supremely confident, capable handling. Yet for all its improved agility, the CTS 3.0L Performance AWD still has to make do with the same underpowered small six-cylinder common to its less-expensive siblings. The 3.0-liter mill develops 270 hp and 223 lb-ft of torque, just not enough to move the heavy AWD Caddy around quickly. A manual gearbox would help keep the engine in its useful range, yet it's oddly not available with the Performance trim.
The CTS 3.0L Performance AWD can really be dolled up inside with the addition of optional (and expensive) Recaro sport bucket seats that hold the driver firmly in place. The standard leather upholstery and high-end AM/FM/XM stereo help the cabin feel plush, while outside standard xenon headlamps and an available rear spoiler contribute to the notion of performance.

With its larger engine the 2011 Cadillac CTS 3.6L Performance AWD finally has the muscle to pull (or push) its nearly two-ton curb weight. The upgraded 3.6-liter powerplant, with 304 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque, proves a suitable motivator for the sophisticated Borg Warner AWD system that makes the CTS 3.6L Performance stick to the road like glue.
Outside the 2011 CTS 3.6L Performance AWD gets stylish 18-inch wheels (19-inch alloys are available) and xenon headlamps. The suspension has been revised to deliver a sportier ride, and the larger engine gives off a slightly deeper exhaust note. The interior features standard leather seats, an auto-dim rear-view mirror and an excellent AM/FM/CD stereo. Options include a slick (yet pricey) set of Recaro bucket seats and a relatively intuitive GPS navigation system.

Befitting its status as the top trim in the range, Cadillac's CTS 3.6L Premium sedan gets a plethora of luxurious features. While the Premium trim level wears a seriously premium price tag, buyers will be treated to a level of equipment usually reserved for more expensive cars.
The interior of the CTS 3.6L Premium offers nearly every convenience on earth, standard. Included are heated and cooled leather power seats with memory, an excellent hard-drive-based GPS system that incorporates a 5.1-channel surround sound stereo with satellite radio, keyless ignition with remote start and a panoramic roof.
The CTS 3.6L Premium is powered by a smooth and powerful direct-injection V6 engine. Making 304 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque, the V6 propels the CTS with vigor. The six-speed automatic transmission is a willing partner, and the firm sport-tuned suspension responds confidently to any road conditions.

The 2011 Cadillac CTS 3.6L Premium AWD features every single trick in the General Motors arsenal. All the stops have been pulled out to create an American sedan that can take on the best of the world.
Starting under the hood, Cadillac has given the CTS 3.6L Premium AWD its latest direct-injection V6, which pumps out 304 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. This high-tech engine mates (via a six-speed automatic) to supplier Borg Warner's excellent all-wheel-drive system. This high-tech drivetrain allows the CTS 3.6L Premium AWD to accelerate confidently and smoothly in any weather.
The interior of the CTS 3.6L Premium AWD gets the royal treatment with standard leather seats, wood trim and a high-end 5.1-channel stereo with GPS navigation. The power seats feature both heating and cooling functions, and the standard panoramic roof provides a stunning view. Though expensive, the CTS 3.6L Premium AWD offers a lot of car for the money.
