The 2018 Cadillac CTS-V achieves the perfect balance of track-readiness and driving refinement. With supercharged power, aerodynamic design and sophisticated technology, the notion of what makes a high-performance sedan has been overtaken. In fact, this is the most powerful Cadillac we have ever built.

EXPERIENCE V-PERFORMANCE DRIVER TRAINING

Put “road-ready, track-capable” to the ultimate test. With V-Performance Driver Training, you get behind the wheel of Cadillac’s fastest and most powerful
vehicles, then learn how to push them to the limit on some of the world’s most famous tracks.

PERFORMANCE

THE SUPER SEDAN, SUPERCHARGED

The CTS-V. Thunderous power. Race-ready agility. Unparalleled refinement.

On the road, it makes every on-ramp memorable. On the track, it makes

every lap a blur. Your wish is its command.

 

  • RAW POWER AT ITS MOST REFINED

    The heart of a supercar. The CTS-V6.2L Supercharged V8 is the most powerful engine we’ve ever put in a Cadillac. Dare to unleash its 640 hp11 and 630 lb-ft of torque and be launched from 0 to 60 in just 3.7 seconds up to a track top speed of 200 mph. The compact 1.7 liter, 4-lobe Eaton® supercharger generates boost early in the rpm band for rapid throttle response. And with Direct Injection, Continuous Variable Valve Timing and Active Fuel Management, the CTS-V is as efficient as it is exhilarating.

    8-SPEED AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION

    Brute force meets refined intelligence. The specially designed 8-speed automatic transmission features Performance Algorithm Shifting. Automatically activated by intense g-forces, it selects the best gear for quicker shifts and faster lap times. For even greater control, grasp the Magnesium Paddle Shifters and tap through each gear for up and downshifts.

ENHANCED ENGINE NOISE

The signature quad exhaust features integrated electronic valves that automatically open and close to produce unique engine sounds based on your selected drive mode. Tour and Snow/Ice modes reveal refined acoustics while Sport and Track modes produce a visceral roar. These are less-than-subtle hints of the supercharged power that beckons you forward.

 

 

TRACK CAPABLE

BORN AT THE STARTING LINE

Between the track and road there could be all the difference in the world. And none at all. Capable in every way, the CTS-V

craves the twists and turns of the circuit, but is equally at home on your local canyon roads.

 

  • BREMBO® BRAKES 

    Uncompromised stopping power. Massive six-piston front, four-piston rear Brembo® Brakes provide consistent stopping power, lap after lap, straight from the factory. A class-exclusive Ferritic Nitro-Carburizing process greatly reduces rotor surface corrosion for smooth braking performance for longer periods of time.

    MAGNETIC RIDE CONTROL™

    Master the road. Tuned for the CTS-V, class-exclusive Magnetic Ride Control suspension reads the road 1,000 times per second and adjusts accordingly—providing precise control and maximum comfort while giving you the confidence to push harder under any condition, on any track.

PERFORMANCE TRACTION MANAGEMENT

The CTS-V can optimize your drive with four distinct drive modes: Tour, Snow/Ice, Sport, and Track. Performance Traction Management builds upon this, giving you competition-spec traction and stability controls. Enter Track Mode and choose from five distinct modes calibrated to different track conditions: Wet, Dry, Sport 1, Sport 2 or Race. Included Launch Control monitors traction to ensure full-throttle, off-the-line acceleration for incredibly consistent 0 to 60 times.

 

 

  • COOL UNDER PRESSURE

    Every grille and vent, designed to function. Large fascia openings force-feed air to an extra-large water and oil cooler and large-capacity radiator. Multiple heat exchangers keep temperatures cool—the electronic Limited-Slip Differential (eLSD) even has a dedicated oil cooler. Each component ensures the CTS-V remains low-stressed, even under high-intensity performance driving.

    LIGHTWEIGHT ARCHITECTURE 

    A stiffened, lightweight chassis allows the CTS-V to be track-capable. Its multi-link MacPherson strut independent front suspension delivers rapid response and lateral control. 5-link independent rear suspension achieves all-out track performance and refined, everyday comfort.

EXTERIOR

Innovation at every turn. A new and improved Cadillac CUE Infotainment system, Wireless Charging station, and Surround Vision are all available to enhance both enjoyment and safety of the 2016 Cadillac CTS Sedan

CARVED WITH PURPOSE

Every surface, line and curve of the CTS-V has been designed with purpose. The aerodynamic exterior is matched only by the lightweight materials from which it is formed. One result is a striking look; the other reveals itself at the finish line.

  • V-SERIES GRILLE

    A statement of intent. The signature V-Series mesh grille has been precisely calibrated for maximum airflow to the supercharged engine.

    AERO SPLITTER 

    The front aero splitter strikes more than a look—it dramatically improves front down force by directing a massive influx of airflow around the vehicle. Front-end lift is reduced, firmly planting you to the road.

    CARBON FIBER HOOD WITH AIR EXTRACTOR

    Strikingly light. The standard carbon fiber hood improves the power-to-weight ratio substantially. Combined with a dynamically styled functional air extractor, it provides greater airflow and reduced underhood lift to keep the CTS-V balanced on the track and the road.

  • REAR SPOILER

    More downforce, less lift. The aggressive rear spoiler not only punctuates your departure it provides the air a clean break from the rear of the vehicle for enhanced rear stability.

    REAR DIFFUSER

    Stuck to the road. The integrated rear diffuser accelerates the flow of air underneath the vehicle to lessen underbody pressure and enhance your aerodynamic grip.

    CARBON FIBER PACKAGE 

    The available Carbon Fiber Package introduces exposed weave carbon fiber to the front splitter, hood vent and rear diffuser adding more form and function to an already commanding presence. Combined with a taller rear spoiler, this package significantly improves airflow and downforce.

  • PERFORMANCE DATA RECORDER

    The available Performance Data Recorder captures your track driving —recording video, audio and performance data in real time that can be viewed on the Cadillac user experience®4 screen or saved on an SD card to watch later. The system’s four overlays —Sport, Track, Performance or Tour — help analyze your skills. The Performance Data Recorder also offers a video-only Valet Mode, so you know how the people parking your V-Series are treating it.

    Available as a free download to V-Series owners, the Cosworth Toolbox can be used in conjunction with the Performance Data Recorder for a more detailed analysis.

    HEAD-UP DISPLAY 

    A focus on moving forward. The reconfigurable full-color Head-Up Display (HUD) projects driver-selectable information such as speed, tachometer and navigation onto the front windshield, so you can keep your eyes on the road ahead.

REAR CAMERA MIRROR

A brilliant look back. Available Rear Camera Mirror streams HD video of what lies behind you to the rearview mirror. This wider, less obstructed field of view offers significantly more vision than a traditional mirror, but can revert back with just a toggle.

  • APPLE CARPLAY™ AND ANDROID™ AUTO

    Cadillac user experience4 with Phone Integration provides owners a smart and simple way to access both Android Auto6 and Apple CarPlay5. Access key smartphone functions including navigation, contacts, hands-free text messaging and select applications supported by Apple or Google.

    WIRELESS CHARGING 

    Conveniently located Wireless Charging comes standard. This means you can power your device anytime the CTS-V is running, regardless if it has wireless charging built-in or requires a wireless charging accessory9.
