Good news for fans of the Cadillac CTS-V who need a little more luggage room: Cadillac is pricing the CTS-V Sport Wagon at $62,990, which is the same base price as the sedan and the coupe. Like it’s siblings, the wagon offers 556 horsepower and 551 foot pounds of torque, good enough to get the “family sized” CTS-V from zero to sixty in 4.0 seconds. If you were keeping score, that’s just 1/10 of a second slower than the CTS-V Coupe and Sedan, not too shabby for a station wagon offering 58 cubic feet of cargo space.
Like the other CTS-V models, the Sport Wagon comes with heated leather seats, factory navigation system, HID headlamps, Bose audio, Magnetic Ride Control suspension, Brembo brakes and five years or 50,000 miles worth of scheduled maintenance as standard equipment. Surprisingly, Cadillac will give CTS-V Sport Wagon buyers the choice of a six speed automatic transmission or a six speed manual transmission, which deserves a round of applause. For some of us, the only proper gearbox for a car with sporting intentions (even a station wagon) is the kind you row yourself.
As on the CTS-V Sedan and the CTS-V Coupe, you’ll want to check the option boxes for the $3,400 Recaro front seats, which are both heated and cooled, and you’ll also need the $300 suede steering wheel. Personally, I’d opt for the dark graphite wheels, but you can also get silver painted or polished aluminum wheels if that’s your thing.
Cadillac still hasn’t told us when CTS-V Sport Wagons will begin hitting dealerships (or better yet, press fleets), but your friendly neighborhood Cadillac dealer is now taking orders for the CTS-V Sport Wagon. Cadillac is only building it in limited quantities for 2011, so if you want one in your garage, you’d best throw some money down soon.
