V-SERIES EXPANDS

For nearly two decades, V-Series has stood at the heart of the Cadillac brand—the combination of raw power and ultimate refinement, of enhanced street driving and bold, performance-inspired styling.  

 

Now in its fourth generation, the legendary V-Series expands to include the first-ever Escalade-V, the most powerful full-size SUV in the industry. 

V-SERIES FEATURES

MAGNETIC RIDE CONTROL

Extremely limited availability for V-Series Blackwing™.

BALANCE AND CONTROL

The V-Series family features the latest generation of Magnetic Ride Control. It reads the road up to 1,000 times per second and seamlessly adjusts damping for confidence-inspiring ride and handling.

ELECTRONIC LIMITED-SLIP DIFFERENTIAL

CONQUER ALL CURVES

V-Series vehicles include a standard Electronic Limited-Slip Rear Differential that automatically directs torque to the rear wheel with the most traction. This helps maximize traction during rain and snow, cornering, or spirited maneuvers.

V-MODE

OWN THE ROAD

Exclusive to V-Series, V-Mode takes your experience to the next level with customizable performance modes. With a quick touch, you can control brake feel, engine sound and other vehicle settings that control driving dynamics and performance. And with V-Series Blackwing, calibrate your vehicle to optimal preselected track settings using Performance Traction Management.

PERFORMANCE DESIGN

LOOKS THAT MATTER

Sometimes, looks matter. Escalade-V offers distinctive 22" wheels designed to accentuate the vehicle’s bold lines and curves. Escalade-V, CT5-V and CT4-V feature lightweight aluminum alloy wheels that come in a variety of available finishes. That’s not all. Colored brake calipers, available on the CT4-V and CT5-V and standard on the Escalade-V, accent your performance braking.  

 

Finally, V-Series-exclusive badging makes sure your presence is noted.

BREMBO PERFORMANCE BRAKES

MAXIMUM PERFORMANCE. FULL STOP.

Powerful braking. Front Brembo performance brakes give Escalade-V, CT4-V and CT5-V confident pedal feel and stopping power. On V-Series Blackwing models, front and rear Brembo high-performance brakes as well as enhanced cooling improve brake performance and fade resistance. And on CT5-V Blackwing, you can opt for Brembo’s advanced carbon-ceramic brake system.  

EXCLUSIVE RACING FEATURES

SERIALIZED STEERING WHEEL PLATE

SIGNATURE MARK

A laser-etched steering wheel plate comes standard on the CT5-V Blackwing and is available on the CT4-V Blackwing. Like the serialization on fine jewelry, each plate number is unique and contains identifying information distinct to your vehicle.

6-SPEED MANUAL TRANSMISSION

PERFORMANCE YOU CONTROL

Each V-Series Blackwing vehicle boasts a standard 6-speed manual transmission with active rev matching and no-lift shifting, finished with a hand-polished, 3D-printed medallion atop the gear shifter to honor the true art of driving.

HIGH-PERFORMANCE STEERING WHEEL

POWER AT YOUR FINGERTIPS

The available high-performance steering wheel in V-Series Blackwing vehicles delights with Carbon Fiber trim and a unique serial numbered plate corresponding to your Vehicle Identification Number build sequence. It also helps personalize your drive with quick-access buttons for V-Mode and Performance Traction Management.

PERFORMANCE DESIGN

SUEDED MICROFIBER AND CARBON FIBER

An available sueded microfiber headliner, as well as available accents on the seats, door trim, steering wheel and shifter, allows you to further refine an atmosphere already teeming with adrenaline.
 

To elevate ultimate performance design even further, available Carbon Fiber packages offer aerodynamic touches that significantly reduce lift and dramatically improve high-speed handling and control.

CARBON FIBER-ACCENTED FRONT SEATS

LUXURY TOUCHES

Available Carbon Fiber-accented seats* are crafted for the true performance enthusiast. Optimized ergonomics provide lateral support during spirited maneuvers, and the slim head restraint design is shaped to comfortably accommodate track helmets. At the highest interior level, a sculptural Carbon Fiber seatback acts as interior artwork that grants you an unbeatable edge.  

AERODYNAMICS

ARTFUL AERODYNAMICS

Signature V-Series aesthetics serve a powerful purpose. The mesh grille design directs air to the main radiators, cooler and airflow ducts. The front splitter and rear spoiler combine to reduce lift and generate traction. This is science applied by the hands of a sculptor.

DRIVING TOOLS

PERFORMANCE DATA RECORDER & COSWORTH TOOLBOX

The Performance Data Recorder captures every aspect of your driving, including real-time video in 1080p, in-cabin audio and performance data. Play back your ride on the HD infotainment* screen to review your performance.
 

Download the Cosworth Toolbox™ and you’ll be able to analyze braking, throttle, steering angle, speed and more from your home computer. Then, sit back and watch as your driving skills level up.

Your passion for performance has met its match. Cadillac V-Series Certified sales and service professionals receive hours of in-depth instruction and behind-the-wheel, closed-course training—all so they can provide you with first-hand, world-class expertise on the iconic Cadillac V-Series lineup.
