Cadillac CTS V-Sport Adds A Touch Of Style With New Morello Red Edition

Cadillac has introduced the 2018 CTS V-Sport Morello Red Edition.

Designed to appeal to drivers who want to stand out from the crowd, the special edition features a modestly revised exterior with a Black Chrome grille, Gloss Black window trim, and a “V-Sport base spoiler.” The limited edition model will only be available in four colors including Black Raven, Crystal White Tricoat, Phantom Gray Metallic and Satin Steel Metallic.

The styling changes continue in the cabin as drivers with find Jet Black Recaro leather seats with suede inserts and red contrast stitching. The model also has red armrests, carbon fiber trim, and a sueded microfiber steering wheel.

Like the standard model, the Morello Red Edition is powered by a twin-turbo 3.6-liter V6 engine which produces 420 hp (313 kW) and 430 lb-ft (582 Nm) of torque. It is connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission which enables the rear-wheel drive sedan to accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 4.4 seconds.

The Morello Red Edition package costs $4,000 and it is available on both the $62,190 CTS V-Sport and $72,290 CTS V-Sport Premium Luxury.

    More makeup won’t make it sell any better. Though this is a good car.

      Great engineered car just maybe too plain exterior and people’s inherited biases.

      Still looks way better than a Tesla on the inside. Maybe if Tesla actually had a nice interior they might actually sell.

      It’s a phenomenal car with one fatal flaw: its interior. It’s a complete mess. Mediocre materials and quite possibly the worst infotainment design in use today.

      BUT…

      The car is surprisingly well put together. I’ve never heard any rattles or squeaks from the interior on my drives which is not true of the Mercedes or BMWs that I drove.

        Not quite. Its engines are crap (outside of the V8 from the Z06) and its reliability ratings are pretty poor. Also, its infotainment sucks and as you mentioned, the interior sucks. Lastly, its priced ridiculously and then discounted in the 5 digits, that does not build confidence in a brand. A bit more than just 1 fatal flaw I’d say.

          I was speaking strictly of the CTS-V.

          • SteersUright

            I can agree with that, its clearly their best product. But, looking closer, even the CTSV is now in a sad state. The CTS-V was once a performance bargain, a good way to invite others loyal to the “better” brands to sample your excellent product. Then Cadillac got all haughty and priced its performance models so ridiculously that the brand is now getting all the love it deserves. Also, the damn thing is just too big now. Its more like a very capable S-class than a true sports sedan, despite its excellent dynamics for such a large car. And the CT6 is about as geriatric a design as I’ve ever seen, while the ATS remains on nobody’s short list due to bad design inside and out along with crap engines especially a turbo v6 in place of the GM Corvette V8 everybody really wanted.

    I love the CTS-V. Haven’t driven the V-Sport, but I figure it’s 7/8th as good. But for Cadillac to have a real resurgence, they need to make cars that change the game and get people excited to part with their money. The industry is in a real funk right now. Especially the three-box sedan category. Everything is so derivative and ordinary.

  • IT’S A SHAME CADILLAC COULDN’T COME UP WITH A FEW MORE PICS.

  • SteersUright

    Cadillac is sooooo lost and buried under layers of shit management.

  • Enter Ranting

    No, Cadillac, the color of the leather isn’t the problem with your interiors. The problem is that CUE sucks. It has sucked since it’s inception, and it will always suck. Admit that you made a huge mistake, and ditch it completely. Start from scratch. Study what people like and don’t like about touch screen systems in cars, and base your new design on that research. But GET RID OF CUE!!!
