2016 Cadillac CTS-V Sedan Coming to 2015 NAIAS
The upcoming 2015 Detroit Auto Show will host the premiere of the long-awaited 2016 Cadillac CTS-V Sedan. The automaker has confirmed that the luxury performance sedan will be introduced at the 2015 NAIAS. The world premiere of the 2016 CTS-V Sedan comes after two very successful debuts. At the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show, Cadillac unveiled coupe and sedan versions of the 2016 Cadillac ATS-V. Those cars are amazing, but the new CTS-V will compete against the most prominent performance sedans in the world. It targets the BMW M5 and the Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG. Needless to say, the automaker won’t reveal details about the new luxury sedan before the official debut, but it’s known that the new design language will be implemented.
2016 Cadillac CTS-V Sedan Redesign
Some of the styling cues already seen at the recently introduced V-Series models might appear on the CTS-V’s body. Of course, it will have its unique style, powerful and intimidating. It’s known that the sedan will have a new grille. Instead of the current mash grille, the 2016 Cadillac CTS-V Sedan will have a vertically-slated one which will be larger. It will dominate the car’s front fascia bringing a powerful aura. The rest of the body will be redesigned, too. Reportedly, the new CTS-V Sedan will have a revised rear end and a distinctive hood bulge.
Possible Engine Options
Although no one can say with hundred percent certainty how much power the sedan’s engine could deliver, the expectations are high. Some rumors said that the 2016 Cadillac CTS-V Sedan will borrow the Corvette’s engine – supercharged 6.2-liter V8 mill which delivers around 600 horsepower. This engine could be paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission which will send the power to the rear wheels. On the other hand, there are speculations about a twin-turbo 4.3-liter V8 mill which is installed in the Elmiraj Concept.
It’s not irrelevant, but no matter which engine will be nested under the hood of the 2016 Cadillac CTS-V Sedan, there’s no doubt the sports sedan will have amazing performance. We’ll know more after the premiere scheduled for January 13th, at the 2015 NAIAS.
