Up until today, you could not convince me that wagons, or what some of you call ‘station wagons’, are cool. I think they are hideous and plain butt ugly but lately my old-school perception has changed with the introduction and confirmation of the new Cadillac CTS-V Sport Wagon coming out.
The new Cadillac CTS-V Sport Wagon is pretty bad-assed if you ask me. It has a rear-end that I would want to ahh-cough-cough, open and CLOSE. Not only does the CTS-V Sport Wagon look pleasing to the eye, it should do a number to your back when you press the gas pedal laying down 556 horsepower and 551 ft-lbs of torque. The big 6.2-liter V8 crammed into the CTS-V Sport Wagon is good for a run from 0 to 60mph in 4.1 seconds. Yea, beat that Clark Grisswald, let’s see your station wagon with wood on the side do that. I bet I could get the CTS-V airborne too buddy!
The confirmation of the Cadillac CTS-V Sport Wagon making its away to the production lines and dealerships during the summer of 2010 comes after Bob Lutz basically told Car and Driver, “You’ll be able to get the CTS-V any way you want.” Well, guess what Bob, I want mine with wood on the side!
