Esquire’s 2011 Car Awards are hear and the Cadillac CTS-V Wagon comes away a winner. The CTS-V Wagon took the top prize for Family Car of the Year. The Sport Wagon boasts interior space the rivals most SUVs and more power than a Ferrari California.
Hiding under the hood of this seemingly innocuous station wagon, hides Cadillac’s new 556-horsepower engine. But what demographic is really looking for a car with the power to blur trees and houses but still carry car seats and soccer balls? Cadillac seems to think that a lot of people will.
With a starting price around $64,000, the CTS-V Wagon certainly isn’t cheap but it is definitely worth every penny. The interior of the car features amenities we have come to expect from Cadillac, such as soft leather seats and high-end navigation systems. But what truly makes this Cadillac wagon worth the price is that 556-hp engine. Gone are the days of dad’s hauling their kids to soccer practices and dance recitals in a testosterone-free minivan, now its time to be a dad and a man too and leave those old minivans in the dust.
