2011 Cadillac CTS-V Wagon Test Drive & Car Review
Cadillac's CTS-V is a musclebound powerhouse of a car, offered in coupe,
sedan, and--in our case--wagon form. This is one of those 'Holy Grail'
cars for enthusiasts, a car that looks great, sounds like the end of the
world, and offers nuclear-level performance while carting its occupants
around in a roomy, well-appointed cabin.
In short, on paper it looks perfect, especially for a wagon enthusiast like
myself. And it looks great in person, too. Our test car's silver coat was
offset beautifully by the optional wheels in glossy black, and brake
calipers in a shade of yellow that looks like it came off a Lamborghini.
The near-exotic feel was capped by the optional suede on the steering wheel
and the shift lever.
On the road, the CTS-V didn't quite feel the way I was hoping it would.
I'd hoped, despite the insanity of the supercharged LS3 (556 hp, 551 lb-ft
of torque) that propels the wagon from 0-60 in around 4 seconds flat, that
the car would dance a little bit. It doesn't, really...it simply looks for
the next available stretch of highway on which it can further stupefy its
driver with its ability to melt great distances down to nothing.
And that really isn't the car's fault. At Despite its great lap times and
well-sorted development, there is simply a limit to what a car of this
size, weight (over 4300lb), and power level can do for this amount of
money. Starting at around $63,400, the CTS-V wagon offers the performance
(and size, and imposing presence) of a $90,000 M5 for the price of an M3.
That in itself is an accomplishment that Cadillac can be unabashedly proud
The fact is that this car is even more unique than the coupe and sedan
versions of the CTS-V. It performs nearly as well, just a few ticks behind
the lighter bodystyles in both 0-60 and 1/4-mile sprints. But it's a
freaking wagon! With 25 cubic feet of cargo room with the seats up, and 68
cubes with the seats folded, it beats out many SUVs, including the BMW X5,
the M version of which will just not keep up with this Caddy CTS despite
costing a cool $40-50k more. You pay for it at the pump, of course, with
mileage in the estimated range of 14 mpg city and 19 mpg highway. But the
low entry price relative to anything that comes close performance-wise is
well worth it.

2012 Cadillac CTS Wagon Car Review
http://www.autobytel.com/cadillac/cts/2012/ The 2012 Cadillac CTS may just
be the best looking Station Wagon on the market today. The front is
exactly the same as the CTS coupe and sedan. But it's outback where the
magic happens. The first thing you will notice is the huge LED taillights
which make a bold impression. The roofline is tapered in the back giving
the 2012 Cadillac CTS Wagon a very sleek look. Cadillac did a great job on
making the wagon look sporty and sexy. Another cool feature you get on the
Wagon that is not available on the Coupe or Sedan is the huge panoramic
The base model 2012 Cadillac CTS wagon has a staring price of $39,015 and
with that you get the 3.0 liter V-6 engine that puts out 270 horsepower and gets 18 MPG
in the city and 26 MPG on the highway. There is a larger 3.6 liter V-6
engine available on a few other models. The bigger engine option brings
the power level up to 318 horsepower all the while
getting the same fuel economy. Of course the trim levels that have the
large V-6 cost a few thousand more.
The 2012 Cadillac CTS Station Wagon is a great choice for those who need
more room but are not looking to jump into the SUV segment. The CTS Wagon
is definitely in a class of its own and driving one will stand out as much
as a high end exotic car. Like it or not there is no denying the CTS wagon
is a bold move by Cadillac.
