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 though 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-V Wagon road trip review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2011 Cadillac CTS-V Sport Wagon is the
fastest production wagon in the world today. Check out this Colorado video
road trip review as we take the fastest wagon in the land to the highest
city in the land.
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.

Redline Review: 2014 Cadillac CTS V-Sport
With the smaller ATS now in the lineup, the 2014 Cadillac CTS is finally
free to move up-market in size, power, and prestige. The all-new
third-generation CTS showcases a lot of firsts for the Cadillac brand. The
first twin-turbo engine, 8-speed
transmission, and a plethora of luxury and technology makes this one of the
best mid-size luxury sedans money can buy. If you want the best handling
vehicle in the segment, look no further, your sport sedan has arrived.
2010 Bentley Continental vs Cadillac CTS-V
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2010 Bentley Continental Suspersports will
set you back $286.845 and it is the most powerful car that Bentley has ever
built with a Twin turbo W-12 6.0L engine
that produces 621 HP. The 2010 Cadillac CTS-V is a mere $ 68,445 and is the
fastest production four door sedan on the market today with a supercharged
V8 from the Corvette ZR-1 that produces 556 HP. Perhaps just as importantly
the two premium luxury sports cars best demonstrate the difference of
flying business vs. flying first class. So what exactly does $200,000 more

The D3 Battle Wagon a 700HP CTS-V Station Wagon
We fell in love with this wagon the first time is set tires in our
workshop. On top of it being a wagon, it's a 6 speed manual trans!
In the D3 Battle Wagon, even trips to the grocery store are all the more
fun with 715 HP and 725 ft-lb's of Torque!
The build concept for the D3 Battle Wagon was to completely upgrade all OEM
components with the most aggressive bolt on parts possible. The result is
an ultra fun, track worthy station wagon!
Signal Hill, CA -- June 18th 2011, A 700+ Wheel horsepower CTS-V Station
Wagon dubbed "The Battle Wagon" has been completed for delivery to its
eagerly awaiting driver.
"CTS-V wagons are a still a rarity, on top of that finding a white 6 speed
manual was like trying to locate Atlantis!" Says John B. the owner of the
Battle Wagon. "The second I heard that Cadillac was going to launch the
CTS-V in wagon form I knew it would be my next car, I have always loved
wagons, from the E39 5 series to the Audi S4 Wagon now to the Cadillac
CTS-V Wagon. With less than 500 miles on the clock the wagon was booked
for an appointment at the D3 Motorsport Laboratory which is D3's in house
The tuning concept of The D3 Battle Wagon is to encompass manageable
amounts of horsepower, allowing for a
balanced, but track worthy grocery getter. To complete the Wagon the
Motorsport Laboratory has broken the build into 3 categories; Performance,
Efficiency & Chassis Tuning.
A wide range of Performance Tuning Equipment manufactured by D3 has been
utilized to upgrade the performance characteristics of the Cadillac CTS-V's
LSA power plant. The Pulley System has been upgraded via the D3 Stage 3
Performance Pulley Kit allowing for a mind numbing 17 PSI of Boost out of the factory Eaton 1.9L Blower
that has been Blueprinted to D3's specifications. To feed this Boost monster the D3 Air Intake, D3 Billet
Throttle Body and D3 Supercharger Lid
Spacer have been installed. Exhaust
work has been provided by the Kooks Long Tube Headers, Kooks X-Pipe with
Race Catalytic Converts and the CORSA touring mufflers. These upgrades
have yielded a raw horsepower gain of 244 wheel
To keep the D3 Battle Wagon ready for action all of its cooling has been
upgraded via the gamut of D3|ULTRACOOLERS. The ULTRACOOLER systems include
the D3 Front Mount Heat Exchanger (Intercooler) the D3 Competition Oil
Cooler, and the D3 Competition Radiator. The chassis has been dialed in
via the D3 suspension suite including: The D3 Competition Lowering
Springs, the D3 Competition Sway Bar Kit, D3 Chassis Bracing, D3 Stainless
Steel Brake Lines and Alcon 2pc Competition Rotors.
"When everything is said and done, I have a complete competition ready
CTS-V, and the best part is that it's a wagon!"
