Cadillac has built a long standing reputation as America’s luxury car maker. In the past, they were known for ostentatious designs on large cars that were akin to land yachts, in size and opulence. Since those heights in the Fifties and Sixties, they have toned it down somewhat, but still produce luxury Americana, with a healthy boot of performance as well. Thus, it was natural when they released their CTS mid-sizer in 2003 that the model would have a high-performance variant, known as the CTS-V. This 2016 Cadillac CTS-V is from the third generation of the nameplate and is reportedly a garage kept example as per the seller. Mileage stands at a light 17,500.
While the second-generation CTS could be had as a stylish coupe and station wagon as well as the obligatory four-door sedan, the third generation axed those two body styles, while growing larger. This 2016 Cadillac CTS-V presents itself in a straight white paintwork that showcases its angular design and aggressive styling cues, while rolling on a equally straightforward set of silver alloys. At the rear, a discrete trunk lid spoiler and quartet of stainless steel exhausts indicate that this isn’t the base 2.0L four cylinder CTS. Step aboard into the black themed cabin with carbon fiber trim, and it’s a regular five-seat family sedan. You’ve got tri-zone climate control with rear vents, a digital instrument cluster, touchscreen infotainment system, Bose sound system, a remote and adaptive vehicle starter system, and some lovely Recaro powered front bucket seats with chrome accents and memory presets for the driver seat. Rear passengers can pull up the integrated rear window shades for added privacy and sun protection, and there are two cup holders for them in the center armrest. There’s ample safety kit on board too, including automatic park assist that can handle front, rear, parallel, and perpendicular parking, forward collision alert, lane change alert, lane departure warning, side blind zone alert, and lane keep alert.
This 2016 Cadillac CTS-V comes with a brawny 6.2L LT4 V8 under the hood, with a supercharger strapped on for good measure. This enables an output of 640hp and 630lb-ft which is tremendous for a mid-sized family sedan no matter how you look at it. Drive goes rearwards via an 8-speed GM 8L45 automatic transmission. Zero to sixty on the street has been routinely timed at 3.5 seconds, and the top speed is 200mph. There’s the Performance Traction Management system to keep things in check, and when stopping time rolls by, the Performance Braking System acts upon the four disc brakes that include front Brembo calipers.
