GM’s vice chairman Bob Lutz has confirmed that the 556-hp Cadillac CTS-V wagon will indeed become a production reality. Lutz dropped the W-bomb during a recent one-on-one interview while discussing how to prime the market for cool cargo haulers—like a possible Buick Regal wagon—especially among the over-35 set that grew up traumatized by wood-paneled Grand Marquis and Chrysler K-car wagon-trocities. Then Lutz said, “You know what’s really going to get you guys [on board with wagons] is the CTS-V wagon.”
This is terrific news, and something I think a lot of people see as a “no brainer”! The Sport Wagon is around 200 lbs heavier than a CTS Sedan, but the Supercharged LSA engine has plenty of horses to handle that. This is great way to extend Cadillac sales — put together products that performance luxury enthusiasts are excited about.
