2016 Cadillac CTS-V V-8 Engine

It should generate 600hp or less, which means it will be less powerful than the one previously mentioned. As for the transmission, there are two possible solutions: a seven-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic. The all-wheel drive is expected, yet not confirmed. Most of the rumors mention it is very possible this model will have it, but we can be certain about it. What we do know for sure is that the 2016 model will have limited slip differential, magnetic ride suspension and improved brakes. If the speculations about AWD are true, this will be one powerful car.
