Cadillac is poised to be the next North American car maker to come up with a true blue sedan that is capable of blazing at speed of 200mph. The first one to make the feat of breaching the breathtaking 200mph mark is the highly regarded Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat which has created immense raves that reverberated all over the United States the moment it was launched few months ago.
Cadillac finally formalized its intention of fighting toe-and-nail with its rivals including the Dodge as it unveils its very own CTS-V which is capable of giving the Hellcat a tough time. Perhaps the most potent Caddy that was ever whipped up, the brawn and good-looking CTS-V boast of supercharged V-8 engine that is cinched to ensure optimum performance by sending power to the rear wheels with its seamless 8-speed automatic transmission.
The powerful Hellcat is a monster on its niche as it is capable of delivering 707 horsepower. Cadillac is not far behind Dodge, as its latest car model is capable of delivering a hefty 640 hp. In terms of top speed, the Hellcat can achieve a neck-breaking maximum speed of 204 mph (326 km/h) and Cadillac is now at second spot with 200 mph. The launching of the Hellcat was a huge success as millions of Americans went berserk on seeing the latest photos of the sturdy muscle car.
The CTS-V can also accelerate from rest to superb 96 km/h in just 3.7 seconds, which is quite slower compared with Hellcat’s 2.9 seconds clocking.
Though the new features of the CTS V bear a lot of similarities with Hellcat, Cadillac is not actually setting its sight on the Hellcat but is also focused on striking dealerships with Mercedes-Benz and BMW owners.
The would be owners of the chic car will certainly get delighted the features such as the large 12.3-inch screen display that support Bluetooth, wireless inductive phone charging and the up to date 4G LTE connectivity. Moreover, the Apple enthusiasts are cinched to get impressed with Siri Eyes Free and text-to-voice that transforms received text messages to speech and conveys them audibly over the audio system speakers.
The 2016 Cadillac CTS-V is slated to be released at North American International Auto Show in Cobo Detroit from January 12 to 13.
