  • Pricing for the 2014 Cadillac CTS sedan reflects a $6,035 increase over the smaller, previous-generation CTS.

DETROIT — The redesigned 2014 Cadillac CTS is moving upmarket in size and price, with General Motors on Thursday saying the luxury car will start at $46,025, including a $925 destination charge. The new-generation CTS goes on sale in the fall.

The 2014 Cadillac CTS Vsport model starts at $59,995, including a $925 destination charge. The CTS Vsport is the most potent version of the luxury car, featuring a twin-turbocharged 3.6-liter V6 engine rated at 420 horsepower.

The Vsport is not intended to replace the 2013 CTS-V sedan, said David Caldwell, a Cadillac spokesman, in response to an Edmunds query. The 2013 Cadillac CTS-V sedan starts at $65,410, including an $895 destination charge and a $1,300 gas-guzzler tax. Caldwell said the new Vsport will not be subject to the gas-guzzler tax.

The 2014 CTS Vsport marks two firsts for Cadillac, including the company's first twin-turbocharged engine and its first eight-speed automatic transmission. The eight-speed transmission is offered only for rear-wheel-drive CTS models.

Pricing for the 2014 Cadillac CTS sedan reflects a $6,035 increase over the smaller, previous-generation CTS sedan. The 2013 Cadillac CTS sedan starts at $39,990, including an $895 destination charge.

However, the 2014 Cadillac CTS sedan's base price does undercut two of its key German competitors, the 2013 BMW 528i and the 2014 Mercedes-Benz E350.

The 2013 BMW 528i starts at $48,725, including a $925 destination charge. Meanwhile, the 2014 Mercedes-Benz E350 starts at $52,825, including a $925 destination charge.

The uplevel 2013 BMW M5 sedan, which some inside GM consider to be a competitor to the 2014 Cadillac Vsport, starts at $92,425, including a $925 destination charge and $1,300 gas-guzzler tax.

Cadillac is touting the fact that the once entry-level CTS is now squarely in the midsize luxury segment. The new CTS is 5 inches longer and boasts more interior room, yet is 244 pounds lighter than the outgoing model. All CTS models are equipped with Cadillac's CUE connectivity system, along with an 11-speaker Bose premium audio system.

Edmunds says: The pricing strategy on the 2014 Cadillac CTS sedan appears to be more in line with — but intended to turn heads away from — the car's German competition. Will it work?
