The 2019 Cadillac CTS-V Sedan is one of the luxury automaker’s top offerings, with powerful engines under the hood and premium features to match.
There is no mistaking the 2019 Cadillac CTS-V Sedan for any other car. From the outside, the CTS-V Sedan can best be described as sharp, not just because of its angular design and dramatic creases but also because of the sheer quality of the sheet metal and the cohesiveness of every detail. From the HID headlamps that seem directly borrowed from Le Mans racers to the head-turning mesh grille and air intake, this sedan is sure to turn heads. Inside, the CTS-V Sedan takes on a decidedly softer look, courtesy of cut-and-sewn Semi-Aniline leather and available Recaro® seats that contribute to a truly inviting space.
The 2019 Cadillac CTS-V Sedan bears the most powerful engine Cadillac has ever put into a production car: a supercharged 6.2-liter V6 rated at 640 horsepower and 630 lb-ft of torque. Such breathtaking power figures come with equally impressive performance metrics, including a zero-to-60 mph time of just 3.7 seconds and a top speed of 200 mph. The eight-speed automatic transmission plays an important role in this theater of speed, using Performance Algorithm Shifting to detect intense G-forces and adjust gears accordingly, as well as the high-performance Brembo® brakes and Magnetic Ride Control suspension that reads the road up to 1,000 times per second.
The 2019 Cadillac CTS-V Sedan comes with all of the toys you would expect in a track car — and then some. The Performance Data Recorder, for instance, captures real-time video, audio and performance data from your time at the track, along with built-in overlays to help you analyze your skills and improve them. There’s no shortage of purely comfort- and convenience-oriented features, though, as most of your time is still likely to be spent on regular roads rather than at the local circuit. These include Cadillac 4G LTE built-in Wi-Fi®, a 13-speaker Bose® Centerpoint® Audio system, a configurable HD instrument cluster and the advanced Cadillac User Experience infotainment system.
When you need a top luxury automobile, the Cadillac CTS makes a compelling case. If you need the same caliber luxury car with amazing performance, the CTS-V, with its supercharged engine and track-focused technology, is a no-brainer.
