The Cadillac CTS-V Sport Wagon is many things. A supercar, a utility vehicle, a sleeper, and my future hearse — just to name a few things. And with a power rating of 556 hp and 550 ft-lbs of torque, we know it’s immensely powerful. But just how powerful? How much of that force actually transfers to the pavement? Edmunds Inside Line investigates by strapping one up to a dynamometer. The result: 492 horsepower at the 6,200 rpm fuel cut, while torque peaks at 502 lb-ft around
3,200 3,700 RPM. Not bad for something that can hold a couple pallets of Costco groceries.
