Cadillac has built a strong brand foundation around its V-series vehicles, and even introduced the world to a V-Sport model with the CTS sedan. Loyalists can rest easy at night knowing Cadillac has no plans to cull its performance offerings. In fact, it sounds like quite the contrary.
In an interview with Motor Trend published Tuesday, Cadillac President Johan de Nysschen said V will continue to be an integral part of “creating this halo brand cachet around Cadillac.”
He added that not every Cadillac will sport a V model, but he confirmed more vehicles will gain a V variant, and V-Sport models will proliferate. The next V-Sport model could very well be the Cadillac CT6 as we await more information on the brand’s 4.2-liter twin-turbo V8 engine.
Of course, the CTS-V, arguably the brand’s most well known V vehicle, will go away as Cadillac prepares to roll out the CT5. We’ll most certainly see a CT5-V in the future.
