It’s great to see Cadillac getting its groove back.
Starting with the upcoming season, Cadillac will return to the SCCA World Challenge series with a race-prepped version of the CTS-V Coupe. As you may recall, Cadillac’s last entry in the series was a version of the first generation CTS-V sedan.
Let’s do us both a favor…be sure to re-read both the tCE reviews of the CTS (2008 model reviewed) as well as the Sport Wagon and the CTS-V Sedan might be a nice read as well – though not required to understand where we start from here. These will get us both through the repetitive nature of the things that we like about the CTS family (‘portfolio’ if you want to be pretentious like the Cadillac.com site).
There, now you know about how the cars are put together, how we typically take exception to the user interface of the infotainment suite, how hands-free features are a bit lacking, how iPhones like to act up occasionally – even with the special Cadillac cable, etc, etc.
Now, let’s get to the business of talking about what is significant about the new CTS Coupe.
