If all this sounds just like the CTS-V Sedan and Coupe, that's because it is. They even share the same 14-mpg city and 19-mpg highway fuel economy ratings, despite the wagon's roughly 200 additional pounds of heft. The only question is how much that weight will impact performance. For reference, the last CTS-V Sedan we tested ripped to 60 mph in 4.1 seconds and past the quarter-mile mark in just 12.4 seconds at 117.9 mph.
It's approximately the same CTS-V copy/paste story inside. Black trim and power Recaro sport seats pump up the interior of the CTS-V Sport Wagon the same way they amp up the other CTS-V variants. This particular show wagon features special wood, leather, and Alcantara trim not yet found in production models - likely a sign of V Series upgrades to come.
The Cadillac CTS-V Sport Wagon will go into production in late 2010 and will go on sale in the U.S. first, followed by Europe and the Middle East. Pricing hasn't been announced, but the standard CTS Sport Wagon commands a $3,100 premium over the CTS Sedan, so a similar premium is expected over the CTS-V Sedan's $64,145 starting price. Production will likely be limited, as demand for wagons is low in the U.S. Cadillac only expects to sell 4,000 copies of the body style per year before even considering special niche models like the V-Series. If you're a wagon fan, though, it doesn't get much better than this.
