The Cadillac CTS-V was launched in 2004 as a high-performance version of the CTS sedan. Aimed at fast sedans like the BMW M5 and the Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG, the CTS-V started out with a C5 Corvette-sourced LS6 V-8, rated at 400 horsepower. In its second generation, the sedan received a supercharged, 6.2-liter V-8 based on the LS9 mill found in the Corvette C6 ZR1. The LSA produced 556 horsepower and 551 pound-feet of torque and found its way into the station wagon and coupe versions the CTS-V received later on. Going into 2015, Cadillac is rolling out the highly anticipated, third-generation CTS-V. Based on the brand-new CTS sedan with a redesigned exterior and a roomier interior, the 2016 CTS-V brings more power, updated technology, and less weight to the table.
