Even before its launch, the 2016 Cadillac CTS-V stirred the market and made the buyers anxious. Car enthusiasts and experts who love automobiles were eagerly looking forward to getting their hands on it.
While not everyone is lucky enough to enjoy this vehicle’s impressive performance and power, some have already had the opportunity to drive this amazing beast. They are mighty impressed with what it has to offer. Based on the early reviews and opinions shared by the thought leaders, it is evident that the new CTS-V 2016 edition is all set to be a grand success for Cadillac. The manufacturer has got everything right and could easily compete with the top players in the industry.
Given its speed and performance, it obviously demands a great track to test its power on the road. The test drive session was officially organized at Elkhat Lake, Wisconsin. The Road America Track was the test zone in which the 2016 Cadillac CTS-V unleashed its 640 horsepower that was a pleasure to drive. The car had great acceleration and easily touched 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 3.7 seconds. The maximum speed offered by the car is at 200mph, but the numbers are for the factory tuned model. With custom parts and tuning, it could max out at 220 to 240 mph or even higher if you are ready to risk to test its maximum capacity.
The CTS-V is powered by a 6.2 liter V8 engine with precision tracking technology. A whole bunch of features is integrated into the vehicle with the help of the Performance Track Management System. The system provides information on the present road conditions, track setup and ways to stabilize the car in turns. There are different modes that you can choose, based on the climatic conditions. The car offers two different sport modes, a wet and another race mode. It uses Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires for maximum efficiency.
Designed with sports lovers in mind, the 2016 Cadillac CTS-V has a sleek look with a low roof which may not suit elderly people. It is a vehicle designed for the young and everyone else who can handle the speed it offers. The interiors are equally powerful with 20-way heated and 16-way power performance seats that have microfiber covered with leather for maximum comfort. It supports 4G LTE connectivity, data recorder for racers, Curbview camera and a classy Bose premium music system.
The base price of the vehicle is at $83,995 without any add-ons.
