Cadillac CTS-V Sport Wagon "likely"

Cadillac's recently unveiled CTS Sport Wagon promises to provide buyers stylish good looks and sports sedan-like handling, all with the added utility of a wagon. But most enthusiasts aren't concerned with any of that. For those with desktops of Audi's RS6 Avant, there's only one concern - will General Motors produce a V-Series version of the Sport Wagon.

We had a sneaking suspicion that Cadillac was working on a fire-breathing V-Series version of the CTS Sport Wagon, and Automotive News may have incidentally confirmed that suspicion.

Automotive News reports that a V-Series edition of the Sport Wagon is "likely", although the timeline for such a product remains unclear.

Since the CTS Sport Wagon rides on the exact same platform as the CTS sedan, the hardware is already in place to make the V conversion. GM has already openly admitted that it wants to dethrone the BMW M5 as the world's premier sports sedan with the CTS-V, so it would seem to make sense that GM would want to knock the Audi RS6 Avant from the top of the hill too.

Cadillac is already planning to launch the CTS Coupe and CTS-V Coupe together, so it's quite possible that GM's luxury brand is planning a surprise CTS-V Sport Wagon launch at one of the upcoming auto shows.
