Vsport Premium combines features of ordinary Premium and Vsport versions.

Standard engine for all trim levels of 2015 Cadillac CTS, except for Vsport, is 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, which provides 272 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. It can be configured as both all-wheel and rear-wheel drive, and coupled with six-speed auto transmission. Vsport is equipped with novel twin-turbo 3.6-liter V-6 and provides astonishing 420 hp and 430 lb.-ft. It is available in rear-drive configuration only with eight-speed auto transmission. Luxury, Performance and Premium trims have an option to choose 3.6-liter V6 with 321 hp and 275 lb.-ft. It is coupled with eight-speed (RWD) or six-speed (AWD) auto transmission.

Its average mpg is as low as 18. However, acceleration of Vsport is astonishing – 4.9 seconds to 60 mph is fair enough.
