Re: Five cars to be thankful for

As we approach the US Thanksgiving Holiday, this list from WREX Television in Rockford, Illinois of 5 current model Automobiles that one could be thankful for hits home:

3. Cadillac CTS-V

Mothers, hide your children! The Cadillac CTS-V is in town, and it’s like no Cadillac you’ve ever driven. Those who grew up in the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s will find it hard to imagine a Cadillac muscle car, but that’s exactly what the CTS-V is. It’s a romping rear-drive sports sedan that has elite cars like the BMW M5 and Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG dead in its sights. With 556-horsepower from its supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 engine, the CTS-V has the goods to play and win in that stratospheric company. Offering a zero-to- 60 sprint in less than four seconds, this Cadillac is faster than fast.

No argument here.  Good to remember that the CTS-V has a world-class handling as well.  Riding on MR struts/shocks, the CTS-V is perfectly at home driving to GrandMother’s or on the track.  Need to stop?  Try 6-piston vented Brembo brakes up front and 4-piston calipers in back.  This Cadillac is the WHOLE package, as demonstrated on the Nurburgring, the home-track for those German makes.    The only thing this Cadillac CTS-V can’t pass is an opportunity to compete, as it did at the Cadillac CTS-V Challenge.

Their Number 4, btw, is the Chevrolet Camaro SS.  Hard to argue with that choice either.
