With a 0-to-60 time of 3.7 seconds and a top speed of 200 mph, it’s not much of a surprise that Motor Authority has nominated the 2016 Cadillac CTS-V for its annual Best Car to Buy award.

The 2016 Cadillac CTS-V sedan features a starting MSRP of $83,996 and comes equipped with the same 6.2-liter V8 supercharged engine that can be found in the Corvette Z06. The CTS-V boasts 640 horsepower, 630 lb-ft of torque, and it can cover the distance of a quarter mile in only 11.6 seconds. All of those factors add up to the CTS-V being the most powerful vehicle ever produced by Cadillac.

Besides offering tons of power, the Cadillac CTS-V also offers excellent ride quality, due largely in part to its Magnetic Ride Control suspension, which uses sensors to scan the road so the vehicle can appropriately adjust to real time conditions.

Motor Authority has nominated seven vehicles in total as finalists for the yearly Best Car to Buy award. Motor Authority will then announce the winner of the award via its web site on January 4th. The only other nominee that has been revealed so far is the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro SS.

Cars that did not qualify for Motor Authority’s list of nominees include the 2016 Audi TT, 2016 BMW 7 Series, 2016 BMW X1, 2016 Cadillac CT6, 2016 Jaguar XF, 2016 Land Rover Discovery Sport, 2016 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR, 2016 Lexus RX, 2016 Lincoln MKX, 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC, 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe, 2016 Mercedes-Maybach 600, and the 2016 Volvo XC90.
