2016 Cadillac CTS-VWhen you take the 2016 Cadillac CTS-V for a test drive through Lebanon, you will notice that this powerful four-door vehicle is ready for thrills and great performance. Between the powerful engine and interior features that remind you that this is a luxury model, getting behind the wheel of the CTS-V is an exciting appearance.

2016 Cadillac CTS-V Performance

The 6.2-liter V8 engine is intercooled and supercharged to give you 640 horsepower and 630 pound-feet of torque. It is easy to feel this power thanks to the smart electronic controls for the 8-speed automatic transmission, the limited-slip differential, the magnetorheological dampers, and the electrically assisted power steering. Even when you reach top speeds, safety isn’t a concern thanks to the Brembo braking. To boost traction, the CTS-V has Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires that sit on forged aluminum wheels. The curb weight is between 100 and 600 pounds less than the competition, and you can easily feel the difference this makes in terms of handling.

The Performance Traction Management system takes out the guesswork of maximizing traction and boosting steering. There is even a Race mode to let you take full advantage of the Cadillac’s abilities.

Relaxing Inside Your 2016 Cadillac CTS-V

The Recaro sport seats help confirm that you are driving a highly capable Cadillac. Opt for the faux-suede steering wheel for even more comfort. Although you can hear the power behind the engine, it is somewhat quieted thanks to the strategically placed muff so you won’t have to yell to have a conversation.

While the Cadillac CTS-V was designed to excel on the racetrack, it also does great on normal roads. Get a feel for it on a test drive through Lebanon, Ohio, at Bill DeLord.
