Cadillac is back and although some people didn’t believe that the old American manufacturer will be able to get the interest of car enthusiasts and potential buyers, they were wrong! Today we will discuss about yet another new and coming Caddy – the 2016 Cadillac CTS-V. The American car manufacturer has announced the third generation of the popular model and they said that this is a completely new car, that just shares the name with the original model that was introduced in 2004.
When you take a look at the 2016 Cadillac CTS-V you will see that this is a new car, that looks like it belongs among other new Cadillacs. The front has a really big grille with chrome elements, that houses the Cadillac logo and new, vertical headlights (with LED daylights and fog lights). The front of the new model tells all about its nature and purpose – this is a sporty, aggressive car, designed and engineered for those who love to drive sport cars. The only downside of the design of this car is the similarity of the front with the Nissan GT-R, which is something that lots of people have noticed.
The back of the car is similar to other new Cadillacs – the whole style of the back is determined with the vertical taillights and the Cadillac logo that sits on the chrome bar. Very nice piece of engineering and design are the dual twin exhausts, that only accentuate the sporty nature of this car.
2016 Cadillac CTS-V Interior
Cadillac has decided to offer new CTS-V in only one trim level, which is unusual, especially for the class of the car where CTS-V belongs. The good news that the interior follows the look of the exterior – it is very sporty and luxurious. The 2016 Cadillac CTS-V is going to have lots of new features, which are only available with this model. The center console is dominated with really large 12.3-inch touchscreen display, but this is not the best feature – manufacturer stated that this car is going to have Performance Data Recorder, which is going to write lots of different data, that the driver will be able to see after the drive and see how can they improve their driving.
The list of the features and equipment that will come as standard with this car is pretty big – rear parking camera, Bluetooth connectivity, WiFI hotspot and wireless charging pad for smartphones are just some of these features!
New Cadillac CTS-V Engine
One of the most interesting things about this car is the engine. The 2016 CTS-V is going to have a 6.2l supercharged V8 engine (Cadillac has named it LT4), which should produce around 640 horsepower! Cadillac will combine this engine with eight speed automatic transmission. According to their data, this car will do 0-60 mph for 3.7 seconds!
Release date and price
The manufacturer said that they plan to make this car available to the customers in August or September. Car like 2016 Cadillac CTS-V does not come cheap and it is expected to have starting price around $70,000.
