GM to debut 2009 Cadillac CTS-V at the 2008 NAIAS in Detroit

GM announced today that Cadillac will be unveiling the Provoq Concept at the 2008 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas tomorrow. While we’re pretty excited to catch the Provoq at the 2008 NAIAS next week in Detroit, we’re even more anxious for the world debut of the 2009 Cadillac CTS-V.

The 2009 Cadillac CTS-V is expected to be powered by a 7.0 liter smallblock all-alloy V8 found under the Corvette Z06″s bonnet. That will give the next-generation CTS-V the ability to produces 512 horsepower and 407 lb-ft of torque. That engine gives the Corvette Z06 the ability to do 0-62 in 3.9 seconds with a top speed of 200mph.

Join us next week as we bring you live images of both the Provoq concept and the 2009 Cadillac CTS-V from the 2008 NAIAS in Detroit.

DETROIT – Cadillac extends its ongoing design and technology momentum with tomorrow’s debut of the Provoq Concept, a vision for a petroleum-free future of luxury transportation. GM CEO Rick Wagoner will present the Cadillac Provoq concept vehicle January 8 at the influential Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, beginning a showcase of Cadillac’s future performance technology and design that will continue at next week’s North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit.

The Provoq Concept continues Cadillac’s remarkable heritage of landmark concept vehicles, this time in a vehicle free from petroleum fuel and emissions, the ultimate luxury. Provoq will make its world premiere at one of the world’s leading technology showcases at CES, appearing again at one of the foremost automotive stages in Detroit on Jan. 14.

Cadillac accelerates into Detroit with another dramatic demonstration of its design and performance technology, the world premiere of the 2009 CTS-V. Cadillac’s high performance V-Series represents the ultimate expression of the brand’s performance and luxury, and the much-anticipated new CTS-V will include many significant technical and design enhancements aimed at placing it within the elite group of the world’s most capable cars.

The 2009 CTS-V extends the momentum created by Cadillac’s 2008 CTS Sport Sedan, which is earning wide acclaim from critics and consumers alike.
