Cadillac CTS Sport Wagon may get V-Series to compete with M5 wagon

We still don’t understand the point of high-performance station-wagons but apparently there is a well sought out market for them. A bunch of new Caddys are on the way including the recently revealed 2010 Cadillac Sport Wagon, 2010 Cadillac CTS Coupe and the 2010 Cadillac SRX. The latter two will debut in the second-half of 2009 so for right now GM is all about the Cadillac Sport Wagon.

Shown at Pebble Beach this past weekend, the 2010 Cadillac Sport Wagon will come to the U.S. next year with two different powertrain choices. The base model will be powered by a 3.6 liter VVT producing 263-hp while the range-topper will get the 3.6 liter V6 direct-injection producing 304-hp. Europeans will get a 2.0 liter turbodiesel V6 producing 250-hp as well.

According to Cadillac’s product director, John Howell, a V-Series model will most likely be available but the timeline for that is unclear as of right now. That means we’ll see a Caddy wagon powered by the current CTS-V’s 556-hp engine that allows for a 0-60 time of 3.9 seconds. The Cadillac CTS-V Sport Wagon will compete with the BMW M5 wagon and the E 63 AMG wagon.
