Cadillac will unveil two European premieres at the Geneva Motor Show 2011. The CTS-V Sport Wagon combines the performance and luxury of the landmark CTS-V Sport Sedan with the dramatic design and functionality of the CTS Sport Wagon. Like its sedan and coupe stablemates, the CTS-V Sport Wagon is powered by a supercharged 6.2L V8, which delivers 564 horsepower (415 kW) and is backed by either a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission. A suite of technical and performance elements complement the powertrain, including Magnetic Ride Control, Brembo brakes and Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 performance tires mounted on 19-inch forged aluminum wheels. The CTS-V Sport Wagon will be available in Europe in fall 2011.
In addition, Cadillac unveils the XTS Platinum Concept for the first time in Europe at the Geneva Motor Show 2011, suggesting a new paradigm for the luxury sedan of the future. The concept showcases Cadillac’s emerging top-of-the-line Platinum series of models, emphasizing new expressions of luxury and technological features, including a plug-in hybrid propulsion system. The XTS Platinum Concept was designed from the inside out, re-imagining the luxury sedan as a personal headquarters, built for efficiency, luxury and connectivity. The concept introduces a new approach to in-car electronics that improves the form and function of the car’s entertainment, navigation and information systems. The XTS Platinum Concept uses Cadillac’s 3.6L V6 Direct Injection petrol engine, paired with a plug-in hybrid drivetrain and featuring a sophisticated all-wheel drive system.
