2018 Cadillac CTS-V Overview
Inspired by the body and performance style of a race car, the Cadillac CTS-V was designed as a street-version of the Cadillac DPi-V.R. Its supercharged engine and stylish stance create an eye-catching sedan that can take you anywhere.
What’s New for the 2018 Cadillac CTS-V?
For the most part, the 2018 Cadillac CTS-V remains the same from the 2017 model year. However, the race car-inspired sedan is adding two additional luxury features to its cabin. The first is a smart auto-activated heated steering wheel for added comfort behind the wheel and the second is Apple Watch integration to keep you plugged in so you don’t miss a thing.
The 2018 Cadillac CTS-V is available in one standard trim level.
