2012 Cadillac CTS gets Touring Package, gives you V touches without going V-Series

2012 Cadillac CTS Touring Package

In similar fashion to Audi’s S-Line package, Cadillac have announced that they will offer a $2,065+ “Touring” sport and luxury package to non V-series examples of their CTS sedan, coupe and wagon.

The Touring Package, which starts at $2,065, will get you high-intensity discharge headlamps (HIDs), sports suspension, performance wheels and a spoiler. The interior gets an upgrade as well. Additionally, Touring optioned 3.6 models will sport leather wrapped Recaro bucket seats, V-Series aerodynamic center high mounted stop lamp (except Sport Wagon); suede seat inserts, steering wheel and shifter; midnight Sapele wood trim and metal pedals.

Both the 3.0 liter (270 bhp) and 3.6 liter (318 bhp) direct injection sixes remain unchanged, but should you order the Touring package with the 3.6, the grille will be blacked out, the wheels will be 18-19 inches and shod with your choice of high performance summer or all-season rubber.

For 2012 and separate from the Touring Package, all CTS models will come with Bluetooth connectivity as standard with a few new colors: Opulent Blue Metallic (brilliant color, but do they really have to use the word “opulent”?), Black Diamond Tri-coat (attractive, a nearly over the top and sparkly black) and Mocha Steel Metallic (a euphemism for brown). Optional starting this year will be rain sensing wipers and a blind spot monitoring system for those who can’t be bothered with turning their heads.
