2011 Cadillac CTS-V Sport Wagon priced from $62,990

Article by Christian A., on October 5, 2010

In an official statement, Cadillac announced today that the 2011 CTS-V Sport Wagon will carry a price tag of $62,990, including destination. According to the manufacturer, the 2011 Cadillac CTS-V Wagon will hit the US dealerships later this year. Under the hood of this monster, we will find the supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine delivering 556 horsepower (415 kW) and 551 lb.-ft of torque (747 Nm).

The power is delivered via a six-speed manual transmission (an optional six-speed automatic transmission is also available) and via the rear wheels.

With that amount of power, the car hits 60 mph in just 4.0 seconds. Other features include Magnetic Ride Control, Brembo brakes, and 19-inch forged-aluminum wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 tires.

Furthermore, the car features a ull range of luxury amenities, such as: heated, leather-appointed seats in-dash navigation system with 40-gigabyte hard drive, Xenon HID headlamps with adaptive forward lighting, Bose 5.1 Cabin Surround audio system and Cadillac Premium Care Maintenance Service for four years / 50,000 miles.

As an option Cadillac offers $3,400 Recaro heated and ventilated, high-performance driver and front-passenger seats, $800 19-inch, polished aluminum wheels, $600 midnight Sapele Wood trim package and $300 Suede steering wheel and shifter.

Brembo and Michelin are two companies that are well-known when it comes to high-performance technology. This partnership has resulted in the Cadillac CTS-V Sport Wagon having advanced braking and tire systems.

The Brembo brakes are positioned at the four corners and have six-piston calipers on the front with four-piston calipers on its rear. Due to the large vented rotors, it provides strong initial braking force and optimizes the heat resistance while managing to eliminate the fade.

Brembo’s brake rotors have been made with the "dual-cast" technology. What this does is combine aluminium and cast iron and thus enable reduction in weight and superior performance. The CTS-V has an electric parking brake included.

This has allowed optimized placement for the dead pedal, a significant aspect especially when it comes to high-performance driving. Michelin’s role in the collaboration is to develop with the brand’s engineers a tire specific to the CTS-V.

This is the Pilot Sport PS2 tire which provides support for high grip levels under track conditions and all the while ensuring that there is excellent road performance.
