The next addition to Cadillac's athletic V-Series is breaking cover at the New York auto show with the reveal of the CTS-V Sport Wagon. Packing 556 hp from a supercharged 6.2-liter V8, the CTS-V Sport Wagon launches late this year.
Cadillac will use the bright lights of New York to debut a special version of the wagon, which it's calling a show car. It's not intended for production, but some of its outfittings could be used for future trim packages. The show car gets a unique rear fascia and upper spoiler.
The CTS-V Sport Wagon rounds out the CTS line, which has become almost a subbrand for Cadillac. It joins the landmark sedan, which was key to the brand's rebirth through design and performance, and the coupe which launches this summer. All versions now have V editions. Cadillac is trying to position its performance line in the same manner as BMW's vaunted M models.
"This is about establishing the V-Series as an important subbrand," Cadillac spokesman David Caldwell said.
