The Cadillac CTS-V wagon is without a doubt the coolest Cadillac from the last 20 years.
A CT5-V would see the return of a supercharged V8 wagon.
Cadillac wants to please its fans.
We have to hand it to GM, and Cadillac. Despite the current pandemic, the restrictions and occasionally depressing news, Caddy’s delivered loads of fun news over the last month. Although we can’t really claim this as “news” per se, the simple fact that there’s a hint of hope for another booster super-Caddy wagon version of the CT5-V has us salivating.
Cadillac Chief Engineer Brandon Vivian partook in the Autoline After Hours podcast a few days ago and in the discussion, dropped a serious bomb. Following a question about a business case for a 2020 Cadillac CT5-V wagon, he responded for the following:
“So I will tell you, I’ve been looking at that many, many, many times… nothing to announce right now, but certainly, when you see the enthusiasm of our customers, and when I’m out there talking to our customers, to our V-Lab—to our V-Club members—there is an absolute fanaticism around the V wagons, and wagons in general. So because of that, we continue to study a future variant.”
This is not the type of response we usually get from a manufacturer when this type of question comes up. Unfortunately, the pandemic has forced the reveal of the new V-Series cars until early 2021.
All of this comes after GM has revealed their ambitious EV plans for the entire company, including Cadillac. It really sounds as though GM’s seen the light.
