TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2019 Cadillac CTS-V is arguably the greatest American performance sedan ever, and we will miss it dearly when it's discontinued after 2019. Aging gracefully, the 2019 Dodge Charger can be a V-6 family sedan or a genuine American muscle car. The 2019 Nissan Maxima is a break from the familiar mid-size four-door sedans.
