  What’s New for the 2019 Cadillac CTS-V?

Luxury sedans are the cream of the crop when it comes to automobiles. Cadillac has been at the forefront of this movement for many years and 2019 is no different. The all-new Cadillac CTS-V is a beast of a vehicle, and it’s coming with a few extra updates for the new year. Some of the changes for this third-generation sedan include a black-chrome grille. This grille comes equipped with dark grillettes for a mean look. On the other hand, the vehicle will be adding Recaro performance seats. Cadillac has decided to bring in two new exterior paints such as vector-blue metallic and phantom-gray metallic. The sedan’s CTS-V Championship Edition package will also be deleted for 2019. Advanced technology courses through CTS-V’s veins. This includes Bose CenterPoint premium audio, 4G LTE Wi-Fi, a rear-camera mirror and a performance- data recorder. In addition to that, this vehicle provides a 12.3-inch infotainment center as well as wireless charging.

The 2019 Cadillac CTS-V will come with an impressive engine. This vehicle is built for high performance thanks to its 6.2-liter V8. This particular V8 engine will produce upward of 640 horsepower. Zero to 60 mph comes in the flash of 3.7 seconds. There is also 630 pound-feet of torque. This supercharged sedan can be used perfectly as a daily driver. The CTS-V’s magnesium-paddle shifters are connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission, which delivers precise shifts. Ultimate precision and control is what drivers will receive when behind the wheel. Thanks to Magnetic Ride Control and performance-traction management, this vehicle will grip the pavement while exhibiting comfortable stroll. When it comes to cabins, few luxury sedans can offer what Cadillac has done. There are six individual blends of semi-aniline leather, including light platinum/jet black as well as jet black/saffron accents. This is a driver-centric cabin that’s centered around refined materials and detailed finishes. Some of the highlights include a thick-rim steering wheel, 16-way adjustable front seats, carbon-fiber trim and sueded microfiber.

CTS-V Sedan Safety

While the CTS-V hasn't been tested by the IIHS, the standard CTS has been put through its paces, and returned a middling score, most notably offering disappointing results in the small overlap and headlight categories, but Good scores in the other categories. The 2018 Cadillac CTS-V was tested by the NHTSA, where it managed to score four out of five stars. The BMW 5 Series has been tested by the IIHS, where it was awarded a Top Safety Pick Plus award, setting the standard for the rest of the midsize luxury sedan class – although the M5 remains untested.

CTS-V Sedan Exterior

The CTS-V wears its heart on its sleeve when it comes to its exterior styling; everything is flared and vented, and one gets the immediate impression that this is one seriously angry car. The CTS range of cars has been rather polarizing in the looks department ever since its launch and has developed a love/hate relationship with the general car-buying public, but there's no denying the fact that the performance-oriented CTS-V looks mean. Exterior appearance features for 2019 include a sporty front splitter, rocker panels, and a rear spoiler, as well as a GT3-looking carbon fiber hood with massive venting slats. The front of the car gets an exclusive CTS-V grille while the rear is finished off with quad exhaust outlets. Lighting the way in the dark is a set of adaptive HID headlights with LED vertical signature lighting and LED taillights. The whole show rolls on a set of CTS-V exclusive 19-inch forged aluminum wheels.
