Product Overview

Cadillac STS is an executive sedan in production from 2004 to 2011. It is available with V6 and V8 engines from 3.6L to 4.6L.
Owners will probably enjoy the powerful, V8 in the STS-V the most, which is smoother than smaller engines and comes with an exhaust note that is sure to please. Compared to I6, H6, V10, or V12, however, the V8 is not very responsive.
