A recent industry report shows that American customers of the 2014 Cadillac CTS spend as much money on kitting out the mid-size sedan as buyers of the BMW 5 Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
According to the report, the average Caddy CTS sedan sold in 2013 for nearly $44,000, but this year the amount hiked to $54,571. As for its main rivals made with pride in Germany, BMW 5 Series brought in $56,284 on average, while the Mercedes-Benz E-Class managed $55,788.

Even though Cadillac Stateside sales volumes are still way behind the two German saloons, the current model year CTS is a better proposition than its predecessor with its larger selection of powerplants and much longer options list. If you were wondering, a fully-loaded 2014 Cadillac CTS Vsport will set you back a cool $73,000.

After the first four months of 2014, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class is the undisputed leader of the segment, while the BMW 5 Series is second best. The least expensive Cadillac CTS will set you back $46,025 including destination charge for the base 272-horsepower turbocharged four-pot engine mated to a six-speed automatic gearbox.

By comparison, the MSRP of a 2014 BMW 528i sporting a four-cylinder turbo engine and a ZF 8HP eight-speed automatic slightly surpasses the $50,000 mark. If you'd rather a sedan badged with the Three-Pointed Star, the 2014MY E350 boasting a 321 hp naturally aspirated V6 and 8G-Tronic gearbox starts in the U.S. at $52,825.
