We all knew the third generation of the CTS-V was coming at some point, and after Cadillac unveiled the new, smaller ATS-V sedan and coupe at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show earlier this year, we knew it couldn't be far away. And right we were: Cadillac has pulled the covers off of its flagship performance sedan several weeks ahead of its official public debut at the 2015 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Like its predecessor, the new CTS-V does not disappoint. Meant to go head-to-head with the BMW M5 and Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG, the CTS-V builds on an already lightweight, sophisticated platform to create what looks to be a phenomenal automobile.

2014 Cadillac CTS Vsport Video

Pop quiz: Why would anyone take a Caddy for hot laps around a race track? If you answered, "Because they can," you've likely made the acquaintance of the 2014 Cadillac CTS Vsport. Cars.com reviewer Aaron D. Bragman did just that on a recent visit to GM's Milford Proving Ground in Michigan. Bragman says the all-new longer, lower and wider CTS platform boasts clean, distinctive exterior styling and a luxurious interior while its lightweight chassis handles extremely well against the forces created by the "track master's" 420-horsepower, twin-turbo 3.6-liter V-6.

2014 Cadillac CTS Video

2014CadillacCTSVideo

Not only does the 2014 CTS position Cadillac better than ever to compete with luxury midsize sedans from BMW and Mercedes-Benz, Cars.com reviewer Kelsey Mays says it's the strongest candidate to accelerate GM into the 21st century. Drawing heavily from 2011's Ciel concept, the redesigned CTS aims for cutting edge with newfangled LED running lights under the headlights, abundant high-quality interior stitching, real metal and wood trim, and lots of tech features — though the forward-looking thing might go a tad far with the motorized cupholder cover.

All that combined with a substantially reduced weight — particularly in the Vsport trim, powered by a 420-horsepower, twin-turbo 3.6-liter V-6 — may bode well for a CTS coupe comeback, though the future of the unpopular wagon remains hazy. Check out the video below.

Beefed-Up Chevy Corvette V-8 Could Power Next Caddy CTS-V

Cadillac_grille

When the 2014 Cadillac CTS debuts at the New York International Auto Show in March, Motor Trend reports the high-powered CTS-V will have a supercharged or turbocharged version of the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette's 6.2-liter V-8. Cadillac parent GM is still deciding which route to take. GM's naturally aspirated LT1 V-8, which goes under the seventh-gen 'Vette's hood, already boasts direct injection, variable valve timing and cylinder deactivation. A turbocharger or supercharger could push output well beyond the 2014 Corvette's 450 horsepower and 450 pounds-feet of torque.

We'd expect it to beat that figure, given that the current CTS-V has a 556-hp, supercharged 6.2-liter V-8. The current engine, dubbed the LSA, is "sort of a sister engine" to the outgoing Corvette ZR1's LS9 V-8, GM powertrain spokesman Tom Read said. Still, it has fixed valve timing, port fuel injection and no cylinder deactivation. The new Corvette's LT1 V-8 is the first 'Vette engine to employ such technologies.

Cars.com Family Reviews the 2012 Cadillac CTS-V

12CTSV

If you’re in the rare position to use your car as both a family taxi and a toy, the 2012 Cadillac CTS-V sedan is for you, says Cars.com Family reviewer Carrie Kim. This four-door sedan can easily handle a smaller family and its trunk is large enough for stroller duty. But the fun is really had behind the wheel with its supercharged 6.2-liter V-8, making a breathtaking 556 horsepower, Carrie says. Come to Mama!

Factory Muscle Still Turns Heads

IMG_0515 - Copy
Among a gathering of collector, muscle and custom cars totaling in the thousands, I thought the factory-fresh 2012 Cadillac CTS-V sedan I was driving would go unnoticed. The unmodified sports sedan — Cadillac’s answer to Germany’s BMW M and Mercedes-Benz AMG performance cars — surely wouldn’t get a second glance sitting next to dream-worthy hot rods, flawless restorations, evil rat rods and more recent models with ludicrous amounts of power added on.
 
My assumption was blown out of the water.
