Cadillac CTS-V Sport Wagon
Although Cadillac introduced the CTS Sport Wagon for 2010, the "V" model is new for 2011. It's the high-performance version of the 2010 stylish wagon that can be had for as little as $40,990. Alas, the new CTS-V Sport Wagon is exclusively rear-wheel-drive and does not come in an all-wheel-drive version. Output from its 556-horsepower, supercharged, 6.2-liter V-8 is delivered to the 19-inch wheels via a six-speed manual or a six-speed, driver-shiftable automatic transmission. Sprinting from zero to 60 mph takes just more than four seconds.
The passenger space is taken directly from the CTS-V sedan model, meaning state-of-the-art technology, high-grade materials, meticulous craftsmanship and uncompromising comfort. Once plentiful on America's roads, wagons are a relatively rare sight today. However, the Sport Wagon's versatility and handsome styling are tough to ignore. This is particularly true when combined with the heat-seeking missile acceleration of the V edition. It gives new meaning to being cool in winter.
