​PRECISE HANDLING

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.

​EXTERIOR

A MORE DYNAMIC AERODYNAMIC

Every curve, edge and line thought throughout. Contributing to lift reduction, enhanced cooling and improved aero performance, the CTS-V 2017’s functional exterior design commands attention. With an athletic stance, wide body and low height, the vehicle’s appearance is both aggressive and intelligent.

V-SERIES GRILLE

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.

CARBON FIBER HOOD

Light, but striking. A lightweight carbon fiber hood provides the CTS-V 2017 with optimal weight distribution and positively sleek looks. The hood, which is designed to be exposed in some places underneath, helps overall weight distribution. Equally impressive, the aerodynamically designed front splitter, hood extractor and spoiler reduce lift to firmly keep the V-Series planted and stable on the road. Available carbon fiber package includes a unique carbon fiber splitter, hood vent, diffuser and the aggressive rear spoiler that generates greater downforce.

BOLD EXTERIOR ACCENTS 

Every detail elevated. A finely tuned quad exhaust announces your arrival, while imposing 19” lightweight forged aluminium V-Series wheels combine attitude with function.

Disclaimers:

  1. Do not use summer-only tires in winter conditions, as it would adversely affect vehicle safety, performance and durability. Use only GM-approved tire and wheel combinations. Unapproved combinations may change the vehicle’s performance characteristics. Lower profile tires wear faster. Wheel and tire damage may occur on rough or damaged roads or from surfaces or from curbs, debris or obstacles. This damage is not covered by the GM New Vehicle Limited Warranty. Contact your Cadillac dealer for more information
  2. Recaro® seats do not come equipped with ventilation.

  4. The system wirelessly charges one PMA- or Qi -compatible mobile device. Requires compatible smartphone and data plan rates apply. To check for phone or other device compatibility, see my.cadillac.com.
  5. Always use safety belts and the correct child restraints for your child's age and size. Even in vehicles equipped with airbags and the Passenger Sensing System, children are safer when properly secured in a rear seat in the appropriate infant, child or booster seat. Never place a rear-facing infant restraint in the front seat of any vehicle equipped with an active frontal airbag. Airbag inflation can cause severe injury or death to anyone too close to the bag when it deploys. Be sure every occupant is properly restrained. See the Owner's Manual and child safety seat instructions for more safety information.
