Cadillac CTS-V Sport Wagon Confirmed for Production As Caddy Shows Concept


It's finally here! Almost. Cadillac has just released full details and several enticing photos of a CTS-V Sport Wagon concept that will debut at the New York Auto Show later this week. The production version has also been confirmed with sales beginning later this year in North America. Cadillac will then offer the car in Europe, competing against cars like the RS6 Avant and Mercedes E63 AMG Estate. It will also be offered in the Middle East.

Like the rest of the CTS-V models, this wagon will get the same incredibly powerful supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine with 556-hp and 551 ft lbs of torque – which we love so much in the sedan (reviewed here).

The V Wagon will join the sedan and coupe models and follow the same pattern, offering a massive front grille, Brembo brakes, 19-inch wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 tires and Magnetic Ride Control. Oh, and like the rest of the CTS-V models, Caddy has made the decision to offer both a six-speed automatic and a six-speed manual transmission.

Cadillac hasn't released any performance numbers, but with the Sedan rated at just under four seconds to 60 mph, we expect a tick over that time in wagon form. That's a small price to pay for the functionality of 25.4 cubic feet of cargo room with a total of 58 cu.-ft. with the rear seats folded flat. That's of course putting aside the less practical 14/19 mpg (city/highway) rating.

We'll be sure to bring you plenty of photos of the concept car with live coverage of the 2010 New York Auto Show starting March 31st. We're eager to get a look at those rear 285s on a wagon and even more eager to drive the beast – especially as Cadillac was able to retain a healthy weight distribution of 52/48 front to rear.
