Cadillac’s US dealers now taking orders for 2016 CTS-V

Article by Christian A., on April 29, 2015

Cadillac’s dealers in the United States have started accepting orders for the next-generation 2016 CTS-V high-performance sedan that will be launched in late summer. The CTS-V will be the second of two all-new V-Series models that will arrive in the US this year after the smaller ATS-V coupe and sedan.

The CTS-V is powered by a 6.2L supercharged V-8 engine that offers 640 hp (477 kW) of output and 630 lb-ft (855 Nm) of torque -- essentially higher than those offered by the Mercedes-Benz 5.5L biturbo V-8 and the BMW M-series 4.4L TwinPower V-8.

The engine is paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission that offers full manual control via steering wheel paddles. These high power specs allow the CTS-V to accelerate from zero to 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds and to achieve a top speed of 200 mph.

The CTS-V, the most powerful car in the 112-year history of the brand, has a starting price of $83,995. Likewise, the CTS-V is certainly worthy to be added to this group composed of the world’s highest-performing sedans.

The new MY2016 V-Series models -- an expansion of Cadillac elite, high-performance line – have been upgraded in terms of performance. Likewise, they appeal to a wider range of drivers with two distinct personalities, size categories and price points. Johan de Nysschen, Cadillac president, remarked that the V-Series represents the “pinnacle of Cadillac.”

He described the new CTS-V as essentially two cars in one: a luxury sedan with “sophisticated road manners” and a track-capable sports car with awesome performance. Offered as standard on the new CTS-V is the segment-exclusive, third-generation Magnetic Ride Control, which is regarded as one of the fastest reacting suspension technologies in the world.

The CTS-V also features a carbon fiber hood, Brembo brakes, 19-inch wheels wrapped with Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires and driver-selectable modes for touring. Likewise, the high-performance sedan features suede microfiber accents and matte-finish carbon fiber trim.

Next-Generation 640-hp Cadillac CTS-V Launches This Summer

Cadillac announced today that U.S. dealers will begin accepting orders for the next-generation 2016 CTS-V, the all-new high-performance sedan that launches in late summer. The 640-hp CTS-V is the second of two all-new V-Series models to come to market in 2015, following the smaller ATS-V coupe and sedan, which launches in late spring.

Cadillac’s new 2016 V-Series models represent a significant expansion of the brand’s elite, high-performance line. Not only are the new V-Series cars elevated in terms of performance, they now reach a broader spectrum of drivers by presenting two distinct personalities, size categories and price points.

With a top speed of 200 mph and 0-60 performance in 3.7 seconds, the CTS-V is the most powerful car in Cadillac’s 112-year history. The 2016 CTS-V is priced from $83,995. Customers can place orders now with dealers and view additional product information at Cadillac.com.

The CTS-V elevates into the elite group of the world’s highest-performing sedans.

“V-Series represents the pinnacle of Cadillac, a brand that now makes drivers’ cars at the highest level,” said Johan de Nysschen, Cadillac president. “The new CTS-V is essentially two cars in one: a luxury sedan with sophisticated road manners and a track-capable sports car with awe-inspiring performance. This type of car is exclusive, the domain of the few who can access this level of incredible capability. V-Series matches or overtakes the finest cars in this elite class, while being more accessible.”

Segment-exclusive, third-generation Magnetic Ride Control, the world’s fastest reacting suspension technology, is just one of many standard features and engineering enhancements offered in the 2016 CTS-V. The car includes a carbon fiber hood, Brembo brakes, 19-inch wheels wrapped with Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires, driver-selectable modes for touring, sport and track driving conditions, and performance-oriented, sueded microfiber accents and matte-finish carbon fiber trim.

Equipped with a 6.2L supercharged V-8 and an eight-speed automatic transmission that offers full manual control via steering wheel paddles, the CTS-V has more horsepower (640 hp/477 kW) and more torque (630 lb-ft/855 Nm) than the Mercedes-Benz 5.5L biturbo V-8 and the BMW M-series 4.4L TwinPower V-8.

The smaller ATS-V launch will precede the CTS-V. Also track-capable from the factory, the 464-hp ATS-V features the exclusive Cadillac Twin Turbo V-6 and 0-60 acceleration of just 3.9 seconds. The 2016 ATS-V is priced from $60,465 and presents high-performance capability in both coupe and sedan forms.
