Talk about great timing! Just as the redesigned 2014 Cadillac CTS hits dealerships, Motor Trend magazine awarded the midsized luxury vehicle with its prestigious Car of the Year award.

The longer, leaner and lower CTS with its sexier, bolder exterior styling is making a statement with a redesign that can go wheel-to-wheel with the likes of tough Euro competitors. The CTS snagged the top prize for the second time by blowing the doors off 22 other completely new, or substantially redesigned competitors.

But what sealed the deal for the CTS was the it's "smooth ride and sporty handling" according to the magazine's editor-in-chief Ed Loh.

“The all-new 2014 Cadillac CTS sedan delivers crafted design, thrilling performance and sophisticated technology,” said Bob Ferguson, GM’s senior vice president of global Cadillac in a press release. “With Cadillac growing globally, driven by rising product credibility, the new CTS elevates the brand to a new level.”

The 2014 CTS has a base of about $46,025 and is offered with three powertrains. A 272-hp 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder is standard and EPA-rated for 20/30 mpg city/highway. A 321-hp naturally aspirated V-6 is available. Rear-wheel drive is standard; all-wheel drive is optional. Exclusive to the rear-wheel-drive CTS V sport is the all-new 420-hp 3.6-liter Cadillac Twin-Turbo V-6 engine.

Cadillac is certainly riding high these days and is, hands-down, holding the brass ring with its latest and greatest offerings. As a matter of fact, sales are up 27 percent this year to 148,206.

Loh appeared on cable news show Fox & Friends on Thursday morning to announce the Motor Trend winner, and showed host Elizabeth Hasselbeck the other two finalists, the Mazda3 and Corvette Stingray before awarding the honor to the 2014 Cadillac CTS.
