Cadillac today unveiled the much rumoured CTS-V Sport Wagon at the New York Motor Show. The vehicle is the final addition to the V-Series performance line. It combines the performance of the CTS-V Sport Sedan with the space of a wagon.
The exterior is finished in Midnight Silver and accented by a Liquid Silver-finished wheels and a black chrome finish on the grille’s mesh insert. The rear fascia, upper spoiler and center high-mounted stop lamp are unique features to the show car.
Inside (there are no pictures so we have to tell you), the CTS-V Sport Wagon is trimmed in black leather with Alcantara accents. The upper section of the instrument panel and upper door panels are covered in the same premium leather, accented with midnight Sapele wood, while the microfiber material and stitching is applied to the lower door panels, pillars, console lid, headliner and steering wheel center. The show car features fine-grain black leather-trimmed Recaro seats with Alcantara seat inserts. The seat inserts are divided in the center and accented with dark gray stitching, while the V-series logo is laser etched into the seatbacks. Obsidian Black accents grace the center stack, console, steering wheel and door panels.
Like its sedan and coupe family members, the CTS-V Sport Wagon is powered by a supercharged 6.2 liter V8 engine, which delivers 564 horsepower (415kW) at 6100rpm and is backed by either a six-speed manual transmission or a six-speed automatic. The powertrain includes Magnetic Ride Control, Brembo brakes and Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 performance tires mounted on 19 inch forged aluminum wheels.
The V-Series Sport Wagon delivers a cargo capacity of 720 liters of space behind the rear seats and 1,644 liters with the seats folded. This doubles the available space of the sedan.
The CTS-V Sport Wagon will go into production in late 2010, with initial sales in North America, followed by export markets including Europe and the Middle East in 2011.
