"The V-Series is a small part of the brand," he said. "But it's an accelerant in terms of consumer image."
Caldwell added: "The next-generation of V-Series is exciting, especially because we can do it on two different car lines."

Edmunds says: The 2016 Cadillac ATS-V will be luring shoppers into Cadillac showrooms before too long.
