2007 Cadillac STS news, pictures, and information
2007 CADILLAC STS: SOPHISTICATED PERFORMANCE AND LUXURYFrom its Cadillac-signature bold exterior styling to its outstanding power and road capabilities, the STS luxury performance sedan is a product of unwavering attention to detail, delivering outstanding performance and sophisticated luxury in a distinctly American package.
Its overall shape brings a faster profile and more rake than its CTS sibling, in a context of elegance and grace. The exterior fit and finish achieves a high level of refinement and illustrates the attention to detail evident throughout the vehicle.
The interior features premium materials and fabrics, including dual-firmness Tuscany all-leather seats, available heated and ventilated, that have been specially tanned for a softer feel. Spray-skinned urethane/natural grained surfaces on the door and instrument panel ensure an inviting, tactile touch, as do the headliner and interior pillars, which are soft-backed and covered wîth a Monaco woven fabric.
New for 2007 is the 6L50 Hydra-Matic six-speed transmission that provides increased performance. The transmission, first introduced on Cadillac's acclaimed STS-V and XLR-V in 2006, is standard on AWD and RWD V-8-equipped models. The new transmission features a generous 6.04:1 overall ratio that delivers strong launch acceleration yet provides 'tall' overdrive ratios that decrease engine rpm and reduce noise levels while cruising at highway speeds.
The STS offers the 254 horsepower (189 kW) 3.6L V-6 in rear- and all-wheel drive configurations, or the 320 horsepower (239 kW) 4.6L Northstar V-8 in rear- and all-wheel drive. Both engines feature variable valve timing (VVT) for precise fuel management and exceptional power at all rpm levels.
Driver shift control, which provides clutchless manual shifting, is standard on the 6L50 transmission. (posted on conceptcarz.com)
Final drive ratios for V-8-equipped STS models include 2.73:1, 3.23:1 and 3.42:1 for rear-drive configurations. All-wheel drive V-8s are available wîth the 3.23:1 rear ratio.
The 3.6L V-6 VVT is the standard rear-wheel drive powertrain. The all-aluminum, 60-degree V-6 features four camshafts, 24 valves and fully variable valve timing of both intake and exhaust valves, a dual-stage intake manifold, electronic throttle control, multi-port fuel injection and a forged steel crankshaft for durability.
Coupled to the engine is a standard five-speed, fully automatic transmission. (posted on conceptcarz.com) The 5L50 features an innovative dual-plate torque converter and a separate, highly refined transmission control module wîth extended power and memory. It also includes driver shift control, engine braking and downgrade protection wîth brake assist.
Rear-wheel drive models are equipped wîth a 3.42:1 final drive ratio and all-wheel drive models are equipped wîth 3.23:1 final drive aspect.
While the STS remains true to Cadillac's performance-oriented roots, a host of chassis refinements ensure refined ride and handling, resulting in a ride that keeps drivers fresh and comfortable without sacrificing the driving experience.
Road impacts and other harsh inputs are effectively absorbed and dissipated through ride-tuned tires, dampers, suspension components and bushings, as well as improved structure in body-to-chassis interfaces and additional refinements in the engine mounts.
Integrated chassis control technologies include a two-mode Magnetic Ride Control offering performance or touring selections, four-channel StabiliTrak and an available high-precision ZF §teering gear.
Wheel and tire combinations include standard 17 x 7-inch cast aluminum wheels mated to Michelin V-rated 235/50R17 and 255/45R17 (front/rear) tires or available Michelin 235/50R17 ALS tires for six-cylinder models.
The standard wheel/tire combination for the V-8 model includes 17 x 7.5/8.0-inch (split size aluminum wheels wîth Michelin V-rated 235/50R17/25545R17 tires. Available 18 x 8-inch, flow-formed aluminum wheels are available wîth Michelin W-rated 235/50R18 and 255/45R18 tires. Additionally, 255/45R18 Michelin Pilot Sport tires are available.
Technological appointments are plentiful, purposeful and driver oriented, including an Easy Key system; Adaptive Remote Start system (not available in Europe or Russia ); Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC); Intellibeam; reconfigurable, four-color head-up display (HÚD); heated and ventilated seats and heated §teering wheel.
An available uplevel infotainment system includes one of the 's first OEM-installed surround-sound audio systems. The cabin is immersed wîth 15 Bose speakers. The 5.1 Bose system also has an integrated six-disc CD/DVD changer and plays formats including DVD-A, CD, and MP3. It includes an eight-inch VGA quality touch screen and advanced navigation. (posted on conceptcarz.com) In addition, the system has Bluetooth phone capability, advanced voice recognition and OnStar.
For 2007, OnStar-equipped STS models will feature a new service called OnStar Turn-by-Turn Navigation, the first factory-installed, fully integrated GPS navigation system from OnStar. Turn-by-Turn allows consumers to talk to a live advisor, who in turn sends complete step-by-step directions to customers' vehicles through their OnStar system. These audio directions automatically play through the vehicle's stereo as needed, triggered by the OnStar system's GPS capabilities. This enables drivers to be led to their destination while keeping their hands on the wheel and eyes on the road. For more information about OnStar, see the OnStar Overview in the Product Information Guide corporate book.
The STS is built at GM's state-of-the-art Lansing Grand River assembly center in Lansing , Mich. Last year, Cadillac began selling STS in Europe, Japan , Russia , Middle East , South Korea , Taiwan and Israel .

The supercharged 2007 Cadillac STS-V is General Motors' most intense expression of Cadillac power and performance yet. It carries all the sophistication of its STS sibling, yet elevates the performance and luxury attributes of the brand's growing V-Series lineup to their fullest extent. The STS-V debuted in late 2005, representing an historic combination of performance technology and hand-crafted elegance.
The 469-horsepower (350kW)* STS-V is the most powerful Cadillac ever, and is capable of exceptional performance for an automobile of its size. Each 4.4L Supercharged Northstar V-8 engine is hand assembled to exacting standards at GM's Performance Build Center in Wixom, Mich., and is built from start to finish by a single expert craftsman. Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) is $77,090, including destination. Production is limited to ensure exclusivity in the marketplace.
The engine is paired wîth the 6L50 six-speed automatic transmission wîth driver shift control. This powerful combination enables 0-to-60 (mph) acceleration in less than five seconds. The STS-V includes numerous chassis enhancements, including massive Brembo brakes wîth air cooling, larger wheels and tires for better grip and larger front and rear stabilizer bars for better performance.
The interior features extensive use of leather wrapped surfaces, created by craftsmen who cut, wrap and sew leather around components individually. The 2007 STS-V marks the initial phase of a new approach to vehicle interiors for Cadillac. In this first incarnation, the existing luxury interior of the STS sedan has been significantly enhanced for the limited-production V-Series variant.
Kinetic aluminum accents adorn the §teering wheel and instrument panel. STS-V features deep-tinted Olive Ash Burl wood accenting the center stack and door trim.
The STS-V will be exported to international markets in 2006, wîth details on pricing in markets outside the Ú.S. forthcoming.
