The 2006 Cadillac STS-V is General Motors’ most intense expression of Cadillac power and performance yet. It carries all the craftsmanship and sophistication of its STS sibling, but at an entirely different level. Designed for everyday driving, the STS-V delivers supercharged, rear-drive performance with an elegant design statement that is unmistakably Cadillac.
The 4.4L supercharged, dual-overhead-cam Northstar engine powers the Cadillac STS-V, producing 469 horsepower (350 kw) at 6400 rpm and 430 lb.-ft. (583 Nm) of torque at 3600 rpm (power and torque figures estimated). Vehicle redline is 6700 rpm.
The Northstar V-8 SC generates 120 horsepower (90kw) and 115 lb.-ft. (156 Nm) of torque more than its naturally aspirated counterpart. The engine’s torque curve puts the STS-V in the under-5-second club for 0-to-60 time. For more information on the STS-V, see the 2006 Product Information Guide V-Series overview release.
