Ultra powerful sports sedan

The 2016 Cadillac CTS-V is a luxury sports sedan that doubles as a supercar. The 2016 Cadillac CTS-V comes standard with a 640-hp supercharged 6.2L V8 engine. The car’s lightweight aluminum body makes that power even more meaningful, and the 2016 CTS-V is incredibly fast, accelerating from zero to 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds. Despite that performance, the car is comfortable enough for daily driving, so you can use it for your commute, running errands, or taking weekend adventures.

5 reasons to buy the 2016 Cadillac CTS-V

1. It’s fast 

If you’re alway in motion and trying to push the limits, you’ll love the engine power in the 2016 Cadillac CTS-V. The standard supercharged 6.2L V8 engine delivers 640 hp, enough to accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds. That engine pairs with a standard eight-speed automatic transmission, complete with steering-wheel mounted paddle shifters.  

2. Track-ready  

With its supercharged V8, the 2016 Cadillac CTS-V can hold its own on any track. The standard track driving mode offers five different levels of traction control, so you can choose the right amount for your drive conditions. The available carbon fiber body kit creates more downforce for racing, while doubling as cutting-edge style.  

3. Multiple driving modes 

Even superheroes need days off, and supercars need to be able to handle more leisurely trips. The 2016 Cadillac CTS-V can do just that, thanks to the four standard driving modes that adjust engine response, steering, stability control, suspension and more. Choose between snow, tour, sport, and track mode at the start of every drive.  

4. Standard performance features 

As you might expect, the 2016 Cadillac CTS-V comes with heaps of standard performance features. Each 2016 Cadillac CTS-V comes with performance Brembo brakes and magnetically controlled adaptive suspension dampers. An electronic limited-slip rear differential, automatic headlights, and rain-sensing windshield wipers are all standard.  

5. Comfortable interior 

The 2016 Cadillac CTS-V isn’t just built for performance: it’s also super comfortable inside. The standard heated and ventilated front seats (leather, of course), can be adjusted 20 ways, including lumbar support and cushion length adjustments. A heated tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, dual-zone climate control, and LED ambient lighting complete the cabin’s luxury feel.
