2016 Cadillac CTS-V Coming This Summer

The second generation 2016 Cadillac CTS-V sedan will hit dealer showrooms later this summer. If you’ve been waiting to get your hands on one, here’s good news. Dealers are now accepting orders for this next-generation performance sedan.

V-Series represents the pinnacle of Cadillac, a brand that now makes drivers’ cars at the highest level,” said Johan de Nysschen, Cadillac president. “The new CTS-V is essentially two cars in one: a luxury sedan with sophisticated road manners and a track-capable sports car with awe-inspiring performance. This type of car is exclusive, the domain of the few who can access this level of incredible capability. V-Series matches or overtakes the finest cars in this elite class, while being more accessible.”
