2011 Cadillac CTS-V Features


The Eaton-supercharged and intercooled V8 engine delivers epic acceleration:

  • Rated at 556 horsepower and 551 lb.-ft. of torque
  • The Eaton supercharger incorporates a four-lobe rotor design that enhances quietness while also optimizing the performance parameters of the engine
  • Harnessing the power is an available TREMEC® 6-speed manual shifter or a Hydra-Matic 6-speed automatic with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters that allow for manual shifting without the use of a clutch pedal, for ultimate driver control

2011 Cadillac CTS-V Sports Coupe Brembo Brakes


High-performance hardware for a world-class wagon:

  • Race-bred 6-piston calipers up front and 4-piston calipers in the rear, with both sitting on vented dual cast iron/aluminum rotors (15″ front/14.7″ rear), deliver massive stopping power
  • Dynamic Rear Proportioning uses electronic sensors to modulate brake pressure front to rear for optimum brake balance
  • Ducts integrated into the lower grille area and a vented wheel design both provide additional brake cooling
  • Exclusive 19″ forged aluminum wheels shod with Michelin® Pilot® Sport PS2 tires developed specifically for the CTS-V

2011 Cadillac CTS-V Sports Coupe Magnetic Ride Control Suspension


Driver-selectable, dual-mode suspension system helps deliver outstanding ride and handling characteristics:

  • Inside the shock absorbers, an electromagnetic coil controls the alignment of magnetic particles suspended in a specially developed fluid
  • Sensors at all four wheels read the road 1,000 times per second–or in the time it takes to blink an eye–to increase or decrease the amount of shock absorber resistance to up-and-down movement by the wheel
  • The system enhances ride quality in Tour mode, adds razor-sharp turn-in response and greater driver control in Sport mode–without sacrificing ride quality

2011 Cadillac CTS-V Sports Coupe Recaro Seats


Available for the ultimate in driver-focused performance:

  • 14-way pneumatic bolster controls allow for personalized comfort with longitudinal, height, tilt backrest and side bolster adjustments
  • Manually-actuated thigh extender accommodates different driver heights
  • Memory function included so you can instantly recall a preferred seating position with the touch of a button

2011 Cadillac CTS-V Sports Coupe Front Angle View


The sleek body reveals functional benefits:

  • Integrated roof rails that enhance the seamless profile while providing additional cargo capability
  • A power liftgate that features memory height positioning to allow drivers to program the liftgate to a height that’s most easily reached
  • A front grille with both upper and lower air intakes that feed cool air to the massive supercharger
  • Fast-acting, vertical LED taillamps that are energy-efficient, last up to ten times longer than conventional bulbs–and create a subtle fin that is pure Cadillac

2011 Cadillac CTS-V Sport Coupe Touch Screen Navigation


The available navigation system features:

  • An 8″ diagonal screen that retracts into the dash, but leaves the top inch visible as the touch-screen display for the audio system
  • A 40 GB hard drive with 10 GB that can store approximately 2,000 songs
  • Pause-and-play radio–much like a built-in DVR for your car stereo–lets you pause live radio (including XM Radio4), record up to 20 minutes of audio, and then play it back at a later time. This capability remains even when the vehicle is turned off. For example, you can listen to a game on XM Radio,4 pause the live broadcast, and then turn off the car to refuel. When you get back in, resume from where you left off
