2016 Cadillac CTS-V Sedan comes even more powerful

posted in: Muscle cars | 0

The 2016 CTS-V is the centerpiece of Cadillac’s V-Series. “V-Series represents the very best of the Cadillac brand – the pinnacle of our design, performance and technology that coalesce in our most substantive products,” said Johan de Nysschen, Cadillac president. “The original CTS-V established that benchmark and this new, third-generation example puts it on the world stage.”

The 2016 CTS-V introduces a new supercharged 6.2L V-8 engine SAE certified at 640 horsepower (477 kW) and 630 lb-ft of torque (855 Nm). It’s backed by Cadillac’s paddle-shift eight-speed automatic transmission featuring launch control and Performance Algorithm Shifting.

The power behind the new CTS-V’s capability is an all-new, more powerful 6.2L supercharged V-8 engine that makes more power more efficiently than the previous Cadillac supercharged engine. It employs a more-efficient, more-compact 1.7L supercharger and matches it with direct injection and Active Fuel Management (cylinder deactivation).

With more horsepower and torque than the Mercedes-Benz 5.5L biturbo V-8 and the BMW M-series 4.4L TwinPower (twin-turbo) V-8, the new CTS-V is capable of 0-60 performance in 3.7 seconds and a top speed of 200 mph.

  • Standard carbon fiber hood and available carbon fiber package, including carbon fiber splitter, hood vent, rear spoiler and rear diffuser for greater aerodynamic performance
  • Brembo high-performance brake system developed to provide durability, consistency and the capability for track-day performance straight from the factory
  • Third-generation Magnetic Ride Control delivering 40-percent faster damping response
  • Structural stiffness increased by nearly 20 percent for higher cornering loads
  • Driver-selectable driving modes for touring, sport, snow and track
  • Performance Traction Management includes segment-exclusive performance-spec traction and stability calibrations
  • Michelin Pilot Super Sport summer-only tri-compound tires offering excellent grip with extended tire wear
  • An interior with high-performance seats and ergonomics focused on the driver’s interfaces with key features for performance driving.


The CTS-V’s dual-purpose capability carries over to the interior, where the design and relationship of key components are focused expressly on performance-driving ergonomics.

“With the performance the new CTS-V is capable of delivering, the interior needs to be as functional as the other vehicles systems,” said Smith. “All of the contact points – the steering wheel, seats, shifter and pedals – are designed to make performance driving experiences direct and intuitive.”
