5 reasons to buy the 2017 Cadillac CTS-V

1. Power and performance 

If you never miss a Formula 1 race, or dream of being a professional driver, the Cadillac CTS-V is for you. The standard 640-hp supercharged 6.2L V8 engine blasts from zero to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds. Standard steering wheel mounted paddle shifters let you have a hands-on driving experience, while also utilizing the engineering behind the standard eight-speed automatic transmission.  

2. Distinct driving modes 

Are you equally at home on the race track, getting ski apres, and at a refined Black-tie dinner? The 2017 Cadillac CTS-V can keep up, thanks to four distinct driving modes that come standard: snow, tour, sport, and track mode. The mode you select dictates how the throttle, suspension, steering and more respond, ensuring the 2017 Cadillac CTS-V is always up for the task at hand.  

3. Track ready 

Have you ever wondered just how skilled of a driver you are? With the 2017 Cadillac CTS-V, you can put that to the test when you’re in track driving mode. That mode offers five different levels of traction control. As you become more confident in your race-driving skills, you can scale back the traction control and really feel the track connection.  

4. Carbon fiber styling 

The Cadillac CTS-V comes with distinct styling, but if you want even more impact, choose the available Carbon Fiber package, which adds carbon fiber hood vent, rear spoiler, front air splitter and rear air diffuser to increase downdraft. The Carbon Black package offers the same features, with a blacked-out grille.  

5. Creature comforts  

The focus on the 2017 Cadillac CTS-V is performance, but the sedan is also incredibly comfortable. Each CTV-S has standard heated and ventilated leather and suede seats that are 20-way adjustable. A heated tilting and telescoping steering wheel and dual zone climate control are standard too.
