2009 Cadillac CTS V

Cadillac unveiled a series of new vehicles at the North American International Auto Show, being held in Detroit, that range from elite sports cars to gas-free automobiles. General Motors (GM) designers say the all-new 2009 Cadillac CTS-V, which will rollout in the fourth quarter of 2008, aims to combine an elite sports car with a luxury sedan. The CTS-V delivers an estimated 550 horsepower (410 kW) and includes Magnetic Ride Control, a Performance Traction Management program and an automatic transmission with paddle-shift control. GM also unveiled the Provoq concept, a petroleum-free, hydrogen-powered vehicle that emits no emissions other than water. During the show, Cadillac also showcased the CTS Coupe concept and the 2009 Escalade Hybrid.
