Review of 2016 Cadillac CTS-V engine specs

There is a lot of hype surrounding the 2016 Cadillac CTS-V sedan and for good reason, although coupe and wagon versions would be welcome. The carmaker has packed a lot into this model, especially under the hood because this is one powerful beast that will pack a punch.

Looking over the review of the 2016 Cadillac CTS-V engine specs we can see that General Motors has gone for the 6.2-liter LT4 V8 supercharged engine. The lump will produce 640 horsepower, a lot for a car of this size.

What this gives you is 630 pound-feet of torque, which is very close to the Corvette Z06 power figures. Supercar performance — The result is a car that will go from standstill to 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds and keep going until it hits 201 miles per hour.

There is always a fear that having that sort of power on such a vehicle will not translate well in terms of offering enough grip. However, Cadillac has overcome this by making use of the Magnetic Ride Control active damping system, which we know increases responsiveness by 40 percent and structural stiffness by 25 percent. The end result is a car that will handle what is thrown at it thanks to positive feedback from the steering.

Functionality — Everything Cadillac has added to this extreme model is there for a reason, such as the new tires to improve grip, and a rear spoiler and diffuser, front splitter and improved aerodynamics and massive weight reduction to ensure superb downforce and overall handling in the tight corners, which is where downforce is needed most.

We expect the new Cadillac CTS-V released date to be mid-2015, and if you are interested in learning more, then you will need to keep an eye out during the Detroit Auto Show next month.
