The Cadillac CTS-V Wagon should not be appealing to most since Americans don't like station wagons, it gets lousy fuel economy and it starts at 63K. One test drive and you'll be tempted to raid your 401K. Tom Voelk checks out this ultra high performance machine, one that's happy to make Home Depot runs.

2011 Cadillac CTS Sport Wagon Review - Kelley Blue Book
FOR PRICING & SPECS ON THIS CAR VISIT:
Eager to capitalize on the success of its CTS sedan Cadillac has expanded
the CTS from a single car into a range of vehicles. One of the more recent
additions is the CTS Sport Wagon, a family friendly rendition of Cadillac's
mid-size luxury vehicle.
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.

DRIVE- Life With The Chevy Volt
There's been a lot written about the Chevrolet Volt. Some think it's
brilliant, others feel it's hype. Does it really go 40 miles on a full
battery charge? Will it save the average viewer money on fuel? Tom Voelk
uses Volt as his only vehicle for a full week to find the answers.
DRIVE- 2011 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid
Hyundai jumps on the hybrid bandwagon but does it a bit differently than
the others. Their Blue Drive system is a modular way of going green. Tom
Voelk checks out this gas / electric sedan.
DRIVE- 2011 Porsche Cayenne S Hybrid
Believing the Cayenne S Hybrid is anything like a Prius would be a foolish
mistake. Porsche's high-tech, high velocity SUV is all about performance.
Tom Voelk takes a look at the gas/electric version of their new second
generation Cayenne, which is the cleanest Porsche ever.
