2011 Cadillac CTS Resale Value Up a Notch

With the launch of the 2011 CTS Coupe model upon us, residual values specialist ALG added the numbers, worked its magic and announced the residual value of the CTS line will rise. Lower incentives, tighter controls on inventory and an emphasis on design are likely to increase the value of the vehicle.

According to ALG data, 36 months into owning your 2011 CTS Sport Sedan you will lose 45 percent of the price you paid when you drove it out the dealership's doors brand new. The percentage is 9 points higher than the projected resale value for the 2010 model. The 2011 CTS Sport Wagon will lose 46 percent of its value over the same period.

“Competitive products, innovative styling and a value driven pricing strategy are contributing to a resurgence of the Cadillac brand,” Matt Traylen, ALG chief economist stated.

“The introduction of the Coupe broadens the potential CTS customer base and elevates the Cadillac brand as a whole with emotional appeal, dynamic performance and enthusiast credibility.”

The coupe version of the CTS, which hit the market this month, is powered by a direct injected 3.6l V6 unit that develops 304 horsepower. The engine is linked to a six-speed manual transmission which allows the vehicle to post a fuel consumption rating of 27 mpg (8.7 l/100km) highway.

The vehicle can also be ordered with a 6.2 liter supercharged V8 which outputs 564 hp.

The model comes equipped with 14-Way adjustable Recaro sport seats (option), pop-up navigation system, integrated iPod/MP3, Bluetooth, rear camera system, adaptive forward lighting system and 40 GB hard drive.

The 2011 Cadillac CTS Coupe has a starting price of $38,990.
