Cadillac CTS 2009

2009 Cadillac CTS
The 2009 Cadillac CTS lineup gains a revived CTS-V high-performance model. The CTS-V is powered by a 6.2-liter supercharged version of the Chevrolet Corvette's V8 engine. It produces 556 hp and is mated to either a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission. The CTS-V comes standard with GM's Magnetic Ride Control suspension, which automatically adjusts firmness within two driver-selectable modes. GM also is offering its "Performance Traction Management" system on the CTS-V. This system is similar to GM's Stabilitrak antiskid system, but it is set to aid performance in spirited driving. The V also gets an upgraded interior that includes available Recaro-brand seats with 14-way adjustment and a suede-like microfiber wrap for the shift lever and steering wheel. The rest of the 2009 Cadillac CTS lineup is largely unchanged following its 2008 redesign. Rear-wheel drive is standard, and all-wheel drive is available on all but the CTS-V. Base CTS models have a 263-hp 3.6-liter V6 engine. Uplevel Direct Injection models have a 304-hp 3.6-liter V6. Both engines team with a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic transmission. Available safety features include ABS, traction control, antiskid system, curtain side airbags, and front side airbags. Available features include steering-linked headlamps and keyless entry and ignition. A navigation system is optional.
