The Next Generation Cadillac V-Series Cars Are Coming In 2015

The latest Cadillac CTS is phenomenal. The Cadillac ATS is the best small sport sedan America has ever produced. That's all well and good, but there's always room for more — more power, more handling, more noise, more more. And more is coming in 2015.

Cadillac today announced that the next generation of America's answer to M, AMG and RS, the V-Series cars, are currently in development and are set to premiere next year. Many of us expected the new Cadillac CTS-V or even ATS-V would bow at the New York Auto Show last month, but that was not to be. Instead, we'll have to wait a little while longer.

They don't say what those cars are, but at the moment we can guess a twin-turbo V6 for the ATS-V and some kind of V8 for the CTS-V.

In the meantime, the bad boy pictured above is going to have to tide us over. That's the 2015 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe, a special edition model of which only 500 will be produced. Cadillac says it marks "the last chapter of the current model before the next generation of the V-Series debuts next year."

Based on the last-generation CTS, this final CTS-V gets a 556 horsepower blown V8, Magnetic Ride Control, Brembo brakes and a few classy interior and exterior tweaks.

Considering how good this outgoing CTS-V is, I'm pretty excited for what Cadillac has in store for us going forward. Good things come to those who wait.
