What is it about station wagons American motorists just don get? In Europe, wagons are hip and hot, but State-side, they still have an image of being old and out-of-date, a remnant of the Leave it to Beaver era.
Perhaps the 2011 Cadillac CTS-V Sport Wagon can help remake that notion. Making its debut at this week’s New York International Auto Show, it’s anything but stodgy with its striking Midnight Silver paint – and a 556-horsepower supercharged V8.
The high performance wagon is the latest addition to Cadillac’s growing V-Series line-up. (Think “V” as in “velocity, suggests General Motors’ soon-to-retire Vice Chairman Bob Lutz.) And it adds yet another spin to the expanding list of variants from Caddy’s entry model, the edgy CTS.
“The CTS-V Sport Wagon is a natural extension of both the V-Series and the CTS lineup, offering an uncompromising performance car to enthusiasts who want the extra room of a wagon,” said Don Butler, vice president for Cadillac marketing.
