Being the fastest, most powerful production Cadillac vehicle ever puts the Cadillac CTS-V on quite the pedestal as a representation of everything that the new Cadillac stands for. Luckily, the CTS-V is quite comfortable in its own skin, and it’s about to be even more so for the 2018 model year, for which it’s getting some minor changes and updates.
On the outside, the 2018 CTS-V deletes two colors while adding two new ones:
- Radiant Silver Metallic
- Stellar Black Metallic
- Satin Steel Metallic
- Vector Blue Metallic
What’s more, the ultra high-performance luxury sedan gets rid of the LPO/accessory-level glovebox-mounted CD drive as well as the sweet-looking CTS-V Carbon Black Package.
Finally, the 2018 Cadillac CTS-V gets the all-new CUE version 3 infotainment system. Representing the third generation of CUE (known as CUE 3, for short), the new system introduces a completely redesigned user experience and new features like driver profiles, an all-new navigation app, and a summary screen. In the 2018 CTS-V, CUE version 3 is available in one flavor — RPO code IOT, which replaces the second-gen IO6 system and includes embedded navigation.
The updates and changes described here are specific to the U.S. market and may be different for other markets.
