What do you get when you take Motor Trend's â€œCar of the Yearâ€ and drop in Corvette's new mammoth ZR1 6.2-liter supercharged engine, then punk up the body trim and add hi-end interior features? You get the 550 horsepower, 550-lb-ft of torque, 2009 Cadillac CTS-V.
The 2009 Cadillac CTS-V with Corvette engine will make it a serious challenger for any sports sedan that the Europeans can make.
Implications - The 2009 Cadillac CTS-V will sport a new front and rear that will make it distinguishable as a sportscar. You can purchase the vehicle in a six-speed manual or, for the first time, an automatic transmission with paddle-shifters. The interior is just as remarkable as the exterior and even features a high-end Bose sound system.
