PERFORMANCE

2018 CTS-V mid-size sport sedan performance: front profile.

THE SUPER SEDAN, SUPERCHARGED

The 2018 Cadillac CTS-V. Thunderous power. Race-ready agility. Unparalleled refinement. On the road, it makes every on-ramp memorable. On the track, it makes every lap a blur. Your wish is its command.

  • RAW POWER AT ITS MOST REFINED

    The heart of a supercar. The CTS-V 6.2L Supercharged V8 is the most powerful engine we’ve ever put in a Cadillac. Dare to unleash its 640 hp and 630 lb-ft of torque and be launched from 0 to 96 km/h in just 3.7 seconds up to a track top speed of 322 km/h. The compact 1.7 liter, 4-lobe Eaton® supercharger generates boost early in the rpm band for rapid throttle response. And with Direct Injection, Continuous Variable Valve Timing and Active Fuel ManagementTM, the CTS-V is as efficient as it is exhilarating.

    8-SPEED AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION

    Brute force meets refined intelligence. The specially designed 8-speed automatic transmission features Performance Algorithm Shifting. Automatically activated by intense g-forces, it selects the best gear for quicker shifts and faster lap times. For even greater control, grasp the Magnesium Paddle Shifters and tap through each gear for up and downshifts.

Cadillac CTS-V performance: signature quad exhaust featuring integrated electronic valves.

ENHANCED ENGINE NOISE

The signature quad exhaust features integrated electronic valves that automatically open and close to produce unique engine sounds based on your selected drive mode. Tour and Snow/Ice modes reveal refined acoustics while Sport and Track modes produce a visceral roar. These are less-than-subtle hints of the supercharged power that beckons you forward.

TRACK CAPABLE

The track capable 2018 Cadillac CTS-V mid-size sport sedan.

BORN AT THE STARTING LINE

Between the track and road there could be all the difference in the world. And none at all. Capable in every way, the 2018 Cadillac CTS-V craves the twists and turns of the circuit, but is equally at home on your local canyon roads.

 

  • BREMBO® BRAKES 

    Uncompromised stopping power. Massive six-piston front, four-piston rear Brembo® Brakes provide consistent stopping power, lap after lap, straight from the factory. A class-exclusive Ferritic Nitro-Carburizing process greatly reduces rotor surface corrosion for smooth braking performance for longer periods of time.

    MAGNETIC RIDE CONTROL™ 

    Master the road. Tuned for the CTS-V, class-exclusive Magnetic Ride ControlTM suspension reads the road 1,000 times per second and adjusts accordingly—providing precise control and maximum comfort while giving you the confidence to push harder under any condition, on any track.

2018 CTS-V mid-size sport sedan: Performance Traction Management.

PERFORMANCE TRACTION MANAGEMENT

The CTS-V mid-size sport sedan can optimize your drive with four distinct drive modes: Tour, Snow/Ice, Sport, and Track. Performance Traction Management builds upon this, giving you competition-spec traction and stability controls. Enter Track Mode and choose from five distinct modes calibrated to different track conditions: Wet, Dry, Sport 1, Sport 2 or Race. Included Launch Control monitors traction to ensure full-throttle, off-the-line acceleration for incredibly consistent 0 to 96 km/h times.

 

  • COOL UNDER PRESSURE

    Every grille and vent, designed to function. Large fascia openings force-feed air to an extra-large water and oil cooler and large-capacity radiator. Multiple heat exchangers keep temperatures cool—the electronic Limited-Slip Differential (eLSD) even has a dedicated oil cooler. Each component ensures the CTS-V remains low-stressed, even under high-intensity performance driving.

    LIGHTWEIGHT ARCHITECTURE 

    A stiffened, lightweight chassis allows the CTS-V to be track-capable. Its multi-link MacPherson strut independent front suspension delivers rapid response and lateral control. 5-link independent rear suspension achieves all-out track performance and refined, everyday comfort.

EXTERIOR

CARVED WITH PURPOSE

Every surface, line and curve of the 2018 Cadillac CTS-V has been designed with purpose. The aerodynamic exterior is matched only by the lightweight materials from which it is formed. One result is a striking look; the other reveals itself at the finish line.

  • V-SERIES GRILLE

    A statement of intent. The signature V-Series mesh grille has been precisely calibrated for maximum airflow to the supercharged engine.

    AERO SPLITTER

    The front aero splitter strikes more than a look—it dramatically improves front down force by directing a massive influx of airflow around the vehicle. Front-end lift is reduced, helping to firmly plant you to the road.

    CARBON FIBRE HOOD WITH AIR EXTRACTOR

    Strikingly light. The standard carbon fibre hood improves the power-to-weight ratio substantially. Combined with a dynamically styled functional air extractor, it provides greater airflow and reduced underhood lift to help keep the CTS-V balanced on the track and the road.

  • REAR SPOILER

    More downforce, less lift. The aggressive rear spoiler not only punctuates your departure it provides the air a clean break from the rear of the vehicle for enhanced rear stability.

    REAR DIFFUSER

    Stuck to the road. The integrated rear diffuser accelerates the flow of air underneath the vehicle to lessen underbody pressure and enhance your aerodynamic grip.

    CARBON FIBRE PACKAGE

    The available Carbon Fibre Package introduces exposed weave carbon fibre to the front splitter, hood vent and rear diffuser adding more form and function to an already commanding presence. Combined with a taller rear spoiler, this package significantly improves airflow and downforce.
