General Motors' redesigned 2008 Cadillac CTS is getting a warm reception from critics. Motor Trend named it "Car of the Year," and it's one of three finalists for North American Car of the Year - along with the Chevrolet Malibu and Honda Accord - an honor voted on by a jury of about 50 automotive journalists.

Since then, fans been waiting for the CTS-V. Cadillac's V series cars are high-performance versions of standard Cadillacs. The 2007 CTS-V, for instance, had a 400 horsepower engine compared to the 255 in the base car.

This time, the 2009 Cadillac CTS-V has a 550-horsepower supercharged V8 engine compared to the 304-horsepower available in the standard Cadillac CTS.
