The 2017 Cadillac CTS-V redefines the notion of high performance sedan. The most powerful vehicle in Cadillac’s 115-year history, the V-Series most representative vehicle combines functional design and sophisticated technology. Built to own both the track and the road you ride on, the CTS-V is the pinnacle of Cadillac’s performance design.
Supreme stopping power. The six piston front, four piston rear Brembo® brakes let you control a powerful engine with durability, consistency and the capability for track-day performance straight from the factory. The specifically sized and tuned rotors provide smooth braking performance.
Responsive shifting. The 2017 CTS-V performance sedan houses an 8-speed automatic transmission that was tuned and tested on the track. Shift through all 8 speeds seamlessly and automatically select the right gear with Performance Algorithm Shifting to improve lap times or use manual mode by tapping the magnesium paddle shifters mounted on the steering wheel for a truly hands-on experience.
Refined raw power.
Go from 0 to 100 KM/H in 3.7 seconds.
The supercharged 6.2L V8 engine of the high performance sedan harnesses an impressive 640 hp and 854 Nm of torque and has the capability to reach 320 KM/H on the racetrack. And for everyday-driving performance, it all works seamlessly with Direct Injection, Continuous Variable Valve Technology and Active Fuel Management.
Seize complete control of every road.
An innovative set of features in the 2017 CTS-V ensures precise handling at all times.
Magnetic Ride Control™ reads the road at a rate of 1,000 times per second and adjusts the suspension to make every ride smoother for maximum performance. At 100 KM/H, this system literally reacts to every inch of the road.
A 40% faster compared to previous version Damping Response System increased stability and handling control.
The Electronic Limited Slip Differential automatically enhances performance split between the rear wheels, making driving well-balanced mid-corner, and maximizing corner exit acceleration.
Finally, the variable ratio rack-mounted ZF electric steering provides precise response with on-center feel and confident control at high speed.
Engineered for the track, but certified for the road. A refined daily driver, the 2017 CTS-V high performance sedan is derived from track racing and designed to be capable of race-day performance from the very first drive.
Complete control. Performance Traction Management provides you with competition spec traction and stability controls. Select from five modes specifically for the track: Wet, Dry, Sport 1, Sport 2 or Race – to adjust for appropriate conditions.
For the perfect start, Launch Control monitors traction activity and ensures full-throttle off the line acceleration for incredible 0-100 times.
Cool, calm and collected. A large grille and fascia openings feed more air into a large-capacity radiator. Together with multiple heat exchangers for cooling, it ensures maximum driving performance.
Glued to your path. Specifically designed and tuned for the V-Series, Michelin® Pilot® Super Sport summer-only tires1 deliver exceptional grip in dynamic driving situations. Simultaneously,
the multi-compound tread composition provides excellent ride quality and extended tread-wear for both every day and track driving.
An upfront statement. With an exclusively designed open-mesh upper and lower V-Series grille, the 2017 CTS-V makes a memorable arrival. And it is aerodynamically designed to maximize airflow into the cooling system, including outboard coolers that maximize airflow to keep the supercharged V8 engine cool.
Every detail elevated. A finely tuned quad exhaust announces your arrival, while imposing 19” lightweight forged aluminium V-Series wheels combine attitude with function.
Curated for style, comfort and convenience. The intricate matte carbon fiber trim and sueded microfiber accents, reveal that you’re riding in a V-Series vehicle.

Less surprises. A unique CurbView Camera can help you protect the V-Series front splitter from damage when parking. Automatic Park Assist also guides with parallel and perpendicular parking scenarios.
Race. Analyze. Race better. Exclusive to the V-Series and its segment, the available Performance Data Recorder offers four overlays — Sport, Track, Performance or Tour — that enable drivers to record their experience by capturing real-time video, audio and performance metrics. The front-view camera captures each exhilarating curve and straightaway, and when parked, lets you watch and analyze your driving performance on the Cadillac CUE®3 screen. Or you can save the footage on the SD card to watch or share your performance later. Use Cosworth Toolbox software to analyze your CTS-V Sedan’s recorded performance data.
