2009 Cadillac CTS-V vs. 2011 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500
Both cars equipped with a 6 speed manual transmission and both in stock trim. Stay tuned for Dyno numbers as we pit these two head to head on EA's new AWD Mustang Dynamometer.
Shelby and CTS-V Dyno Pulls
2009 Cadillac CTS-V "Bone Stock" and 2011 Shelby GT500 "Bone Stock"
Torque numbers tested. Both vehicles tested back to back in same
conditions. Performed on MD - AWD -1750 (MustangDyno). We had some issues with
the quarter mile function and elected to leave it out. You will see that
the Cadillac posted higher horsepower and torque
figures than the Shelby. For those who viewed our video CTS-V vs. Shelby a
few weeks back you would have noticed that the Shelby held a very small
lead on the CTS-V until the CTS-V driver lifted and the Shelby driver kept
going. We apologize for this appearing staged. The Shelby had about a car
length lead. So... Cadillac has more power and torque, Shelby has less
weight. Both cars are very close in time making for a fun battle. We plan
to run both cars head to head at the drag strip in the coming weeks. Stay
2011 GT 500 Ride Along, Exhaust, Acceleration
Starts w/ a brief slideshow, my new Shelby GT 500 "playing".
This year's (2011) Shelby is better on the track, due to the SVT
performance package; stiffer suspension, unique tire/wheels -Goodyear F1 G2
Supercar tires ; 20x9.5 in the rear, 19x9.5 up front. Also, it is over
100 lbs lighter than the previous model , due to an all aluminum engine
block. Mileage is improved as a result. My personal average is 16.2 MPG
city and 24.5 HWY.
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.
Shelby GT500 Crushes Camaro SS! - Drag Race Showdown
When we first pitted the Camaro SS against the Mustang GT, Ford fans complained it
was an unfair race given the horsepower disparity. But
now Ford has tipped the scale way back in it's advantage with the top of
the line supercharged snake, the GT500. We head to the drag strip to see
how the underdog Chevy stacks up.
