8-SPEED AUTOMATIC

THE RIGHT GEAR RIGHT NOW


The 8-speed automatic transmission with Magnesium Paddle Shifters features Performance Algorithm Shifting. Automatically activated by intense G-forces, it seamlessly selects the best gear for quicker shifts and faster lap times.

PERFORMANCE TRACTION MANAGEMENT

COMPETITION-SPEC TRACTION


Performance Traction Management (PTM) integrates traction and engine control systems for improved and consistent cornering during spirited driving. From the Drive Mode selector, enter Track Mode and choose your level of ultimate control: Wet, Dry, Sport 1, Sport 2 or Race.

TRACK CAPABLE

BREMBO® HIGH-PERFORMANCE BRAKES

Behind lightweight forged alloy wheels, you’ll find massive, racing-inspired six-piston front, four-piston rear, fixed caliper Brembo brakes with vented rotors—for firm pedal feel and unmatched confidence.

MAGNETIC RIDE CONTROL SUSPENSION

Magnetic Ride Control reads the road up to 1000 times per second. The reaction time is so quick, it reads every inch of pavement traveled for more confidence on the track and more comfort on the road.

MICHELIN® PILOT® SUPER SPORT TIRES

Michelin Pilot Super Sport summer-only, low-profile tires feature a unique tri-compound tread specially designed for ultra-high-performance driving, offering excellent grip, enhanced ride quality and extended tread wear.

TRACK-CAPABLE FROM THE FACTORY

The CTS-V boasts a multi-link MacPherson strut independent front and rear suspension, connected to a stiffened lightweight structure that achieves all-out track performance and refined, everyday comfort.

RACING-INSPIRED COOLING SYSTEMS

Power that keeps its cool. The CTS-V employs racing-inspired cooling systems that include an extra-large water/oil cooler, large-capacity radiator, multiple heat exchangers and a rear differential oil cooler.

ELECTRONIC LIMITED-SLIP DIFFERENTIAL

During aggressive cornering, the electronic Limited-Slip Differential (eLSD) automatically directs power to the rear wheel with the most traction for great control and fast exit speeds.

EXTERIOR

CARVED FOR PERFORMANCE


Every grille and vent serves a higher performance purpose. The aerodynamic exterior is matched only by the lightweight materials from which its formed. One result is an aggressive appearance, the other is revealed at the track.

AVAILABLE CARBON FIBER PACKAGE

The available Carbon Fiber Package pairs an aero-optimized exposed weave carbon fiber front splitter, hood extractor and rear diffuser with an even more aggressive rear spoiler for greater traction at high speeds.

V-FORGED ALLOY WHEELS

Imposing 19-inch wheels bring low weight and high strength together in perfect balance. Forged from billet aluminum, they help reduce un-sprung weight for greater cornering and a more direct steering feel. These wheels are the perfect complement to the 18-inch Michelin® Pilot® Super Sport summer-only, low-profile tires.


AERO SPLITTER

The front aero splitter dramatically improves front downforce by directing a massive influx of airflow around the CTS-V. Front-end lift is reduced, firmly planting you to the road.

CARBON FIBER HOOD

The standard carbon fiber hood, combined with a dynamically styled air extractor, provides greater airflow and reduced under hood lift, keeping the CTS-V balanced on the track and the road.

REAR SPOILER

Greater downforce, reduced lift. The aggressive rear spoiler not only punctuates your departure, it provides the air a smooth exit from the rear for enhanced stability.

REAR DIFFUSER

The integrated rear diffuser accelerates the flow of air underneath the CTS-V to lessen underbody pressure and enhance your aerodynamic grip.

INTERIOR

PERFECTLY EXECUTED REFINEMENT


The CTS-V is a celebration of precision engineering and luxury craftsmanship. The driver-centric cabin is punctuated by refined performance materials and meticulously detailed finishes.

RECARO PERFORMANCE SEATS

Comfort that performs. Available Recaro® Performance Seats offer 16-way adjustability, slip-resistant microfiber suede inserts, and aggressive bolsters that cradle your body during hard cornering.

THICK-RIM STEERING WHEEL

Power you can control. The multifunction thick-rim steering wheel is sculpted and wrapped in leather or available microfiber suede for easy grip and ultimate control.

CARBON FIBER TRIM

Cutting-edge design. The carbon fiber trim blends exposed carbon fiber accents with contrasting silver weave to exhilarate your senses, even at a standstill.

CRAFTED FOR A PERFECT FINISH

Cut-and-sewn Semi-Aniline leather, sueded microfiber, aluminum and carbon fiber finish the cabin in sophisticated refinement with a subtle nod to our racing spirit.
