2014 CADILLAC CTS SPORT WAGON BLENDS STYLE WITH CARGO CAPABILITYCadillac CTS Sport Wagon is a progressive take on the classic American wagon body that delivers style, function and efficiency – including up to an estimated 26 mpg on the highway.
The CTS Sport Wagon is offered as a well-equipped Luxury model and two option collections: Performance and Premium. All models offer seating for five or up to 58 cubic feet (1,642 liters) of cargo space wîth the rear seat folded. CTS Touring and Performance packages that enhance the appearance and sporty driving feel are available.
The Luxury model features a 3.0L V-6, while Performance and Premium Collections come wîth a 3.6L V-6. Both engines feature direct-injection technology and EPA highway mileage ratings of 26 mpg. All-wheel drive is available, giving this stylish and versatile wagon a greater measure of capability.
Continuous improvements have helped keep the CTS family at the top of customer consideration lists and earned it critical praise. That tradition continues in 2014, as the CTS Sport Wagon offers four new exterior color choices: Phantom Gray Metallic, Majestic Plum Metallic (available at an extra cost), Mocha Steel Metallic and Red Obsession Tintcoat (available at an extra cost).
The CTS Sport Wagon complements a range of models and body styles that includes the all-new 2014 CTS Sedan, Wagon and the high-performance V-Series. Please see separate releases for CTS Sedan and CTS Coupe. Also, please see the separate release for CTS-V Wagon.

CTS Sport Wagon powertrains
A 3.0L direct-injected V-6 is the standard engine in Base and Luxury models and is rated at 270 horsepower (201 kW). Along wîth direct injection technology, the 3.0L engine employs continuously variable valve timing to optimize power and fuel efficiency and reduce emissions. Highway fuel economy on 3.0L-equipped rear-wheel drive models is 27 mpg.
The CTS Sport Wagon's 3.6L direct-injected V-6 is standard in the Performance and Premium Collections and delivers an SAE-certified 318 horsepower (237 kW). Lightweight features help reduce overall weight for greater efficiency and a more favorable front-to-rear weight balance. Examples include a composite intake manifold that saves approximately 5.5 pounds (2.5 kg) over the weight of a comparable aluminum intake and an integrated cylinder head/exhaust manifold design that saves approximately 13 pounds (6 kg) per engine.
The Hydra-Matic 6L45 six-speed automatic transmission is standard on all CTS Sport Wagon RWD models. The 6L50 six-speed is featured on AWD models.
