The 2013 Cadillac CTS lineup offers very nice vehicles that provide an above-average level of performance capability. If you are a fan of the base CTS models, you're sure to enjoy the CTS-V version models even more. The 2013 CTS-V Wagon is a wicked- looking machine - perhaps a little too angular to suit everyone's personal taste, but count me as an avid fan.

It's not out of line to think of this latest CTS-V as a high-performance luxury wagon version of Corvette's ZR1. Admittedly, the 'Vette generates a higher boost from its supercharger and sports a different exhaust, which cranks out more horses and higher torque than does the CTS-V. But even though they share the same basic engine, you can't carry all your stuff in the 'Vette.

The power source is a potent, 6.2-liter, supercharged, intercooled OHV V8 engine with 16 valves and sequential center-feed fuel injection. The engine is longitudinally mounted forward and pumps out an SAE-certified 556 hp at 6,100 rpm, along with 551 lb ft of torque at 3,800 rpm. Motive energy is delivered to the rear wheels via either a Tremec TR6060 six-speed, fully synchronized manual gearbox with a single overdrive, or an electronically controlled Hydra-Matic 6L90 six-speed automatic overdrive with torque converter clutch.
