First launched in 2014, Cadillac CTS-V has become one of the best-selling cars from Cadillac. Three years after we saw on our roads, the company is now working on a new model; the upcoming 2017 Cadillac CTS-V. Unlike in the past where this model was just a lower cost alternative to the more expensive European counterpart, the company has chosen to take a different route. The upcoming car is a fully fledged model that promises its rival a bruising battle once it is officially released to the public.
2017 Cadillac CTS-V – New Features
Looking at the outside, it is evident a lot ha been borrowed from the 2014 CTS version; however, the company has gone ahead and combined that look with new. Although the headlamps remain unchanged, much of the body parts have been altered and made to look better. The car now comes with a more striking front and improved aerodynamic capabilities. The grille comes with a new mesh pattern and is much narrower from before. The interior design is all about elegance and luxury. The interior has been upgraded when it comes to specs so as to compete against some pretty exclusive models on the marker. The cabin now comes with a 20-way adjustable seat with heating as well as, ventilation. The seats are also wrapped in leather with suede microfiber. The cabin is also spacious and comes with a lot of soft comfy material combined with very decorative stitching.
2017 Cadillac CTS-V – Engine and Performance
Propelling the new 2017 Cadillac CTS-V will be the same engine as before; we are going to see a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 with an impressive power output of 640 hp and 630 lb-ft of torque that is a bit more than Audi RS6 and BMW M5. The engine will send all the power and torque to the rear wheels via an 8-speed automatic gearbox. While this may be seen by many as a drawback, considering the car can sprint to 60 mph in just 3.6 seconds and 100 mph in less than 8 seconds, it really doesn’t matter all that much. Moreover, one of the best things about this engine is that it is very refined and at normal driving speed, it is quite fuel efficient as well. In order to keep all that power at bay, the upcoming 2017 Cadillac CTS-V will also come as standard with massive Brembo brakes in the front and at the back. The 2017 Cadillac CTS-V also comes with four drive settings which will help it maximize performance on almost any terrain. For example, the Tour mode’’ enables a compliant ride quality for a well-mannered daily experience. Plus, the 19 inch light alloy wheels are all wrapped in the best Michelin tires and the magnetic shock feature will provide a smooth experience.
