The V-8 will see its debut in the upcoming CT6 V-Sport, a sedan destined to become Cadillacís performance flagship. Itís also the first in a series of new Cadillac performance vehicles.

The CT6 V-Sport takes design cues from Cadillacís new design language featured on the Escala Concept. The sedan features Cadillacís large V-mesh grille, along with LED horizontal headlamps. Lower aero components and gloss black side window trim are designed to give it a distinguished look.

The V-Sport will come in two trims: Luxury and Sport. It will also come with Cadillacís new amazing Super Cruise technology that Jerry Reynolds checked out in his 2018 Cadillac CT6 Platinum test drive.

Notable safety and technology additions include new available Rear Pedestrian Detection. It alerts the driver, when in Reverse, of an imminent collision with a pedestrian by providing visual notification on the rearview camera display. The CT6 V-Sport will offer an available industry-first Surround Vision Recorder video recording system. It can record front and rear views while driving, and 360 degrees of recording if the vehicleís security system is activated. Night Vision helps identify people and large animals via heat signatures on a display in the driver information center.

The Cadillac V-Sport lineup already includes the CTS V-Sport and the XTS V-Sport.
