Magnetic Ride Control, Brembo Brakes and Michelin PS 2 tires: A formula for success.
Posted on: Wednesday, March 2, 2011
Cadillac’s 2011 CTS V-Series achieves exceptional levels of road-holding performance, while maintaining the poise of a luxury car in “regular” driving conditions. The technical enabler of this dual-mode driving character is Cadillac’s landmark Magnetic Ride Control. It is the world’s fastest-reacting suspension technology. Partner it with Brembo brakes and Michelin PS2 tires and you have a formula for success.
The 2011 Cadillac CTS-V Series’ Magnetic Ride Control uses shocks controlled by advanced magneto-rheological technology, rather than mechanical valves, to greatly accelerate response time and precision. Electronic sensors at all four wheels literally “read the road” every millisecond. The Cadillac CTS-V’s electronic sensors make constant adjustments to damping, creating virtually instantaneous and extremely precise control of body motions.
The Cadillac CTS-V Series’ Magnetic Ride shocks also enable a broader range of damping control to optimize the ride and handle for all driving conditions, whether it is another snow storm like in 2011 or a sunny day, your drive will be as smooth as butter. With the Cadillac CTS-V, an extra measure of control is offered, with two selectable modes (Tour and Sport), enabling you, the driver to tailor the suspension for grand touring or more spirited performance driving. Heaven on wheels.
The CTS-V also incorporates sophisticated braking and tire systems, in partnership with two companies renowned for high-performance technology: Brembo and Michelin. Oversized, vented Brembo brakes enable strong initial braking force while optimizing heat resistance and eliminating fade. The 2011 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe comes with 19” wheels with Brembo disc brakes – 6-piston in front, 4-piston in rear-bringing massive stopping power.
Michelin also partnered with Cadillac engineers to develop an exclusive Pilot Sport PS2 tire specifically engineered for the CTS-V. The tires support high levels of grip in track conditions, while also affording excellent performance on the road.
Michelin, Brembo and Magnetic Ride Control are a formula for success. Come to your local DFW Cadillac Dealer to test drive one of the 2011 Cadillac CTS V-Series automobiles today.
