Release date for the 2017 Cadillac CTS-V in Canada
Around the Don Wheaton showroom, people might be excited about new versions of the Corvette or Camaro, but the Cadillac specialists are just biding their time until the release date for the 2017 Cadillac CTS-V in Canada arrives. The V-series of the popular CTS sedan is without question one of the most exciting cars that General Motors/Cadillac has ever produced. From a performance perspective, there isn’t much higher the 2017 CTS-V could climb. To keep existing buyers interested as well as to attract traditional customers of European sedans, Cadillac has decided to add the Carbon Black Sport package to the CTS-V for an instant boost in attitude.
What’s new for the 2017 CTS-V?
Most of the changes made before the release date for the 2017 Cadillac CTS-V in Canada are in the area of new technology. Some trim grades will be outfitted with the segment exclusive rear camera mirror. Lots of cars, trucks and SUVs have rear view cameras. Cadillac takes this idea to its next logical evolution. Instead of a customer looking at an infotainment screen to see what is behind them, a high resolution image is projected onto the rear view mirror. Driving traditionalist can choose to disable his feature and use the mirror as a standard rear-view mirror.

Because of the high-performance capable from the 2017 Cadillac CTS-V, some parents maybe a bit apprehensive about letting new drivers get behind the wheel, unsupervised. Cadillac has added the GM Teen Driver system to the car. This system can help parents monitor their new driver’s behind the wheel habits and help them make good decisions, even though they aren’t in the car. Additionally, Cadillac has worked with some of the top application developers to make the Cadillac Collection available to owners.
The 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot and smartphone integration capability are also returning for the 2017 model year.
Performance specs of the 2017 CTS-V
Why would Cadillac possibly want to change the performance specifications for the 2017 CTS-V? The powerful luxury sedan retains its supercharged, 6.2-liter, V-8 engine that is shared with the Corvette Z06. Drivers will still be able to take advantage of all 640 horsepower and 630 pound-feet of torque. Just like last year, the 2017 CTS-V is able to make more power than competing models from Mercedes-Benz and BMW. Testing has revealed that the 2017 Cadillac CTS-V can reach 60 mph from a dead stop in as little as 3.7 seconds and can hit a top speed of around 200 mph.
