Cadillac CTS-V Wagon
- Bonus: $70,000 to $100,000
- Price: $63,215
- Gas mileage:
- City - 12 mpg
- Highway - 18 mpg
Whether you choose the sedan, coupe or wagon version of this Cadillac, the base price is the same. What the above price doesn't include is the $1,300 gas guzzler tax that's tacked on to the total of every CTS-V. But hey, you're rolling in cash, so what's another grand or so when you want to buy the best car to get the most from your bonus?
The price is also the same for the driver-shiftable six-speed automatic transmission as it is for the six-speed manual; the fuel economy listed is for the more fuel-efficient automatic. It sends production from the 556-horsepower, 6.2-liter, supercharged V8 to the rear wheels. A Cadillac with the "V" designation can reach 60 miles per hour from a standstill in four seconds.
Sporty and inviting, the cabin seats four comfortably. Extra-supportive Recaro front sport seats are optional. Features that are standard include dual-zone automatic climate control, keyless entry/start, power rear liftgate, power tilt-telescoping steering wheel, Bluetooth connectivity, backup camera, navigation system with 8-inch monitor, and a 10-speaker Bose-infused audio system with CD player, satellite radio, 10 gigabytes of available music storage and iPod interface.
