2010 Cadillac STS Reviews
Cadillac's midsize sport sedan, the STS, features a powerful base engine, an optional V-8 and a variety of high-tech safety options. The STS competes with the BMW 5 Series, Lincoln MKS and Hyundai Genesis.
New for 2010
The 469-horsepower STS-V has been discontinued.
The STS' bumper is prominent, and its grille is dominant. Like it or not, you have to admit that the elements are in proportion, from the plunging grille to the stacked headlights and fog lights. A Platinum Edition Package, optional with either engine, adds a new grille finish and 18-inch chrome wheels.
The STS can have optional wood trim; real metal trim accents the steering wheel and dashboard. The Platinum Edition augments the cabin with a leather dashboard and a suede-like ceiling.
Under the Hood
The base STS' 3.6-liter V-6 has direct injection and produces 302 hp and 272 pounds-feet of torque. An optional 4.6-liter V-8 makes 320 hp and 315 pounds-feet of torque. Both engines use a six-speed automatic transmission.
