The latest version of the Cadillac CTS V defines what a Cadillac should be- powerful, executive-looking and yes, pricey. The standard CTS V today comes with a 6.2-liter V8 engine taken from the Corvette, Brembo brakes, eight-speed automatic and comes as a rear wheel drive. Just like the engine performance of Corvette Z06, the CTS can provide more than 600 horsepower thus making this a great super sedan. Priced at nearly $85,000, this super sedan is not exactly the idea of many for showing off, but if you shop for used Cadillac, for model years 2005-2010, you can get CTS that’s still fun to drive and definitely impress!
