2009 Cadillac CTS-V Sport Sedan





 The 2009 Cadillac CTS-V sport sedan is an ultimate expression of performance and luxury from Cadillac. Powered by a 550 horsepower supercharged V8 engine, the 2009 Cadillac CTS-V sport sedan develops 550 lb-ft of torque. The engine for Cadillac CTS-V sport sedan is a modified version of the LS9 V8 found in the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1.



The 2009 CTS-V also includes a comprehensive suite of technical and design enhancements over the previous generation CTS-V, including Magnetic Ride Control, an industry-first Performance Traction Management program and the addition of a new automatic transmission with paddle-shift control. Transmission choices for the 2009 CTS-V include either a six-speed manual or an exclusive, six-speed automatic with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters. It is the first automatic offered on the CTS-V.



“The CTS-V represents the full extension of our design, technology and performance capabilities,” says Jim Taylor, Cadillac general manager. “The V-Series takes the award-winning CTS sport sedan and elevates it to a position within the club of the world’s most exclusive and capable cars.”



The 2009 Cadillac CTS-V also includes sophisticated braking and tire systems, in partnership with two companies renown for high-performance technology: Brembo and Michelin. Brembo brakes are at all four corners and include powerful, six-piston calipers in the front and four-piston calipers in the rear. Michelin worked with Cadillac engineers to develop its acclaimed Pilot Sport 2 (PS2) summer tire for the CTS-V and its 19-inch wheels.
