2016 Cadillac CTS-V With 640HP Coming Late Summer

2016 Cadillac CTS-V has a new 640 horsepower supercharged 6.2L V-8 engine with a paddle-shift eight-speed automatic transmission, featuring launch control and Performance Algorithm Shifting delivering 630 lb-ft of torque and a top speed of 200 mph. It employs a more-efficient, more-compact 1.7L supercharger and matches it with direct injection and Active Fuel Management (cylinder deactivation). The CTS-V shares the same 114.6-inch wheelbase as the CTS non-V-Series models, but has wider front and rear footprints that enhance grip, reduce body motion and contribute to more direct-feeling steering. 2016 Cadillac CTS-V launches late this summer.
