2016 CTS-V with 640 hp, 200-mph top speed

2016 Cadillac CTS-V arrives with 640 hp, 200-mph top speed


"Ask the company's executive team, and they'll tell you "this is the maximum Cadillac V-Series." It's the 2016 CTS-V sedan, and it packs the very best of what's possible at Cadillac. And the company says it doesn't think "anyone thought it was possible that we could push [the CTS-V] this far."

The big news is what's underhood: General Motors' supercharged, 6.2-liter LT4 V8, tuned to 640 horsepower and 630 pound-feet of torque. That's 10 hp and 20 lb-ft less than the monstrous Corvette Z06, and the result is the most powerful car Cadillac has ever produced. With rear-wheel drive, launch control and the eight-speed automatic transmission (sorry, folks – no more manual transmission here), Cadillac says the 2016 CTS-V will sprint to 60 miles per hour in just 3.7 seconds, on its way to a top speed of 200 miles per hour.

Naturally, Cadillac's engineers say they have tuned the CTS-V to ensure it can put all that power to the ground with the most precision and poise possible. That starts with the excellent Magnetic Ride Control active damping system (with a claimed 40-percent increase in responsiveness)and a 25-percent increase in structural stiffness that should improve overall handling and steering. What's more, a high-performance Brembo brake package comes standard, as do 19-inch alloy wheels wrapped in seriously sticky Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires that will reportedly offer 1g in lateral acceleration.

Cadillac also says that all changes to the bodywork are functional. That includes a carbon-fiber hood, front splitter, rear spoiler and diffuser that are super light and aid with aerodynamics and weight reduction – all of which will be available as an optional package for folks who like the exposed carbon look. Inside, it's more of what we're used to on lesser CTS models, but there's newly optional carbon fiber trim, microfiber suede upholstery trim, and some seriously awesome Recaro seats.

Additionally, as we exclusively reported earlier, Cadillac will offer GM's Performance Data Recorder in the CTS-V. It records high-definition video with data overlays that's sharable via social media. Beyond that, Cadillac will offer the usual smattering of tech goodies, including Siri Eyes Free, OnStar with 4G LTE, CUE infotainment with navigation and Bose audio.

The CTS-V will launch later next year, following the debut of the smaller ATS-V. In the meantime, the sedan will officially bow at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show in just a few weeks. Pricing has yet to be announced, but we assume it'll be revealed in the not-too-distant future. In any case, this thing looks seriously good, and to say we're stoked to drive it would be an understatement. This ought tobe the maximum Cadillac V-Series, indeed."




This is awesome. GM has their 600+ hp four door, Chrysler has their 700+ hp four door. Ford has uh .. a 365 hp ecoboost v6 in a four door.

Hopefully, Ford has already been working on a hot-rod Lincoln.

Either way, queue up the Team America theme song.

If Lincoln made a competitor; then ford will make them use a ecoboost six banger as an engine. They already f***ed up the wannabe ford gt so why not f*** up a performance sedan. Seriously this ecoboost crap is getting old.

Do you even know why Ford used the 3.5 v6 ecoboost in the GT?

Yes, I know. It still needs a v8, it isn't a third gen gt with out a v8. The 5.2 is very capable in endurance racing.

It'll be much easier to get the power they need out of it since if they used the 5.2 they would have to keep it N/A.

I do agree there needs to be an option for the 5.2 (maybe even TT also) but the EB-6 makes sense for their racing purposes.
