Cadillac CTS-V Named Car and Driver 10Best For Fifth Straight Year

2012 Cadillac CTS South Carolina

The 2012 Cadillac CTS-V is available in coupe, sedan, and wagon styles with a 556-HP supercharged engine.

For the fifth consecutive year, the editors of Car and Driver magazine have named the Cadillac CTS-V to their annual 10Best list.  Each year, the magazine’s editors invite manufacturers to submit their new or newly-revised models with prices below their $80,000 limit in addition to the reigning 10Best winners from the previous year; to keep the title for this length of time is a high honor.

The Cadillac CTS-V is available in sedan, coupe, and wagon body styles with a 556-HP supercharged engine mated to a six-speed manual or automatic transmission (the latter with paddle shifters on the steering wheel).  Also included are Brembo race-inspired brakes, dual-mode Magnetic Ride Control pioneered by Cadillac and used in some of the world’s most expensive supercars, and available Recaro seats for additional support in heavy cornering.  As a Cadillac, it still comes naturally well-equipped with features including touchscreen navigation, Bose premium sound system, keyless access system, rearview camera with ultrasonic rear parking assist, heated leather seats (with suede inserts on the Recaro seats), and much more.

Also included with every new Cadillac CTS for sale in Columbia SC is Cadillac’s exclusive Shield program, which includes a suite of owner benefits and privileges:
