Cadillac today introduced the 2016 CTS-V, the most powerful product in the brand’s 112-year history and the newest entry in the elite class of the world’s highest-performing luxury cars.
Launching in late summer with 640 horsepower (477 kW), 630 lb-ft of torque (855 Nm) and a top speed of 200 mph, the new CTS-V reaches higher than its predecessors, leading Cadillac’s product-driven expansion and elevation. It is the third generation of the acclaimed luxury sports sedan that launched the elite V-Series a decade ago – and redefined Cadillac for a new generation of enthusiasts.

The next generation of Cadillac’s V-Series elite, high-performance cars began today with the introduction of an all-new race car, the Cadillac ATS-V.R. Set to begin competition in 2015, Cadillac debuted the new race car at the Circuit of the Americas, one of country’s pre-eminent racing venues.
The ATS-V.R is the racing extension of the upcoming 2016 Cadillac ATS-V Coupe, which channels more than a decade of V-Series engineering experience into the brand’s first compact performance model. The ATS-V Coupe debuts next week, along with the ATS-V sedan, at the Los Angeles Auto Show and arrives track-capable from the factory next spring.
Cadillac today introduced the 2016 ATS-V, expanding the acclaimed ATS product range and elevating the brand’s elite high-performance V-Series to its next generation.
Available in sedan and coupe forms, the first-ever ATS-V will introduce class-leading twin-turbocharged power and a comprehensive suite of design and performance systems when production begins in spring 2015.
Since its inception in 2004, Cadillac’s V-Series has driven remarkable power and performance capability into the brand’s growing luxury car range. Building on the strengths of the award-winning ATS product line, the V-Series adds impressive track capability to what was already the lightest and most agile-driving car in the luxury compact class. The result is a dual-purpose luxury performer – a car with true track capability right from the factory that is also a sophisticated luxury car on the road.
While Cadillac has reinvented the Escalade, the preferred mount of rock stars, pro athletes and Hollywood’s red carpet elite, Hennessey Performance (HPE) has put in overtime developing a supercharger upgrade for its new 6.2-liter direct-injected V8 engine. It’s all the better for sneaking up on the unsuspecting Mercedes GL63 AMG or Range Rover Sport…that is, until the roar of the exhaust and subtle Hennessey branding give you away.
2015 Cadillac Escalade features brand new design, which highlights vehicle’s emblematic quality and elegance. The styling cues combine sculpted surfaces with high technology. Although the appearance of Escalade is new, its iconic character has been preserved through an evolution of design dating to the first generation vehicle, introduced in 1999.
With a strong sense of presence and proportion, the next-generation Escalade modernizes many Cadillac elements such as shield-shaped grille, the Galvano bright trim, and the LED vertical light signatures.
2014 Cadillac XTS and CTS as well as 2014 Buick Regal and 2014 Chevrolet Impala have all earned five stars given by Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) via their rating program on front crash prevention. These General Motor vehicles are all considered industry leaders when purchased with GM’s available Front Automatic Braking system. This important safety technology is not only available on GM’s luxury Cadillac products, but also on the more mainstream Chevrolet and Buick vehicles.
The IIHS previously recognized GM for front end safety, bestowing its highest safety rating – the 2014 Top Safety Pick +, on the 2014 Chevrolet Equinox, GMC Terrain, and Chevrolet Malibu. The main contributor for this high score was the available forward collision alert. The Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain are the only midsize SUVs out of the nine evaluated to earn “Good” ratings in the IIHS’s small overlap front crash test.
2015 Cadillac ATS Coupe includes number of changes for the new model year, which deliver not only exquisite styling but also enhance its performance. The luxury ATS Coupe is ready to go on sale by the end of this summer. All of the surface development unique to the vehicle was done with aerodynamics in mind. Cadillac was also able to achieve lift and downforce requirements to insure, that at top speed the car will retain its handling without an added rear spoiler.
In addition, the wider track of the ATS Coupe also enhances the steering precision and direct response. On the other hand the lower roof contributes towards a lower center of gravity height. This also reduces roll and improves steering response.
