2019 Cadillac CTS-V vs. Its Competition

2019 Cadillac CTS-V

The BMW M5 is the benchmark performance luxury sedan and continues to set the bar after a recent redesign and the addition of all-wheel-drive for the first time ever.

Mercedes’s E63 AMG gives the M5 a run for its money, however, and also has an advantage over the Cadillac for being newer.

Lexus’s GS F is way down on power compared to the Germans and the Cadillac, but its naturally aspirated V-8 and old school character is a joy to behold.
