Detroit was the place to be for those interested in the future of Cadillac. The luxury automaker gave a close-up look at its most powerful model ever, the CTS-V. Not only is the model the best-looking luxury sedan on the market, but underneath the hood there’s also tons of power.
The Cadillac CTS-V performance is rooted in its 6.2-liter V8 which generates 640 hp and 630 lb/ft of torque. Paired with an eight-speed transmission, the CTS-V does an astonishing 3.7 second 0-60, and can easily reach 200 mph, according to The Daily Caller. Talk about white-knuckle driving.
“The V-Series represents the very best of the Cadillac brand — the pinnacle of our design and technical capabilities,” said Cadillac president Johan de Nysschen. “The new CTS-V is the most compelling example of Cadillac’s product substance and brand trajectory.”
Aside from the massive engine and high-tech transmission, the new Cadillac also features carbon-fiber lightweight materials, racing seats, Brembo brakes, and an electronic limited-slip differential. Expected to launch next summer, we can’t wait to see the new CTS-V in action. Check out our current CTS luxury sedans here at Crest Cadillac!
