2016 Cadillac CTS-V To Arrive at Dealerships Next Summer: 2015 Detroit Auto Show

DETROIT — The 2016 Cadillac CTS-V performance sedan will debut at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show and arrive at Cadillac dealerships next summer, a Cadillac spokesman told Edmunds on Wednesday.

The highly anticipated 2016 Cadillac CT6, the new top-of-the-range sedan for the GM brand, will not debut at the Detroit show. It will be unveiled at the 2015 New York Auto Show, according to Cadillac spokesman David Caldwell.

The CT6 will start production at the end of 2015 and is expected to be in dealer showrooms about a year from now.

The Cadillac V-Series, which includes the 2016 Cadillac ATS-V coupe and sedan, is becoming something of a sub-brand for Cadillac. The series is aimed at younger, affluent and influential car shoppers. The "V" sometimes refers to "velocity," according to Cadillac insiders. The "V" imagery is derived from the Cadillac chevron and such historical models as the Cadillac V-16.

The 2016 CTS-V sedan will be available at all U.S. Cadillac dealerships. It targets the BMW M5, Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG and Audi S6.

"The destiny of the V-Series is to reach higher and do more," said Caldwell.

The CTS was all-new for the 2014 model year. Caldwell said about 500 2015 CTS-V coupes were produced and there are "just a few left" on dealer lots.

Consumers should not expect to see coupe or sport-wagon versions of the 2016 CTS-V.

Pricing and technical specifications were not disclosed.

Edmunds says: The Cadillac V-Series sub-brand is growing and now will include two vehicles, something that should please car shoppers seeking luxury and performance.
