The 2008 Cadillac STS-V Base model receives a new dual-textured, multi-faceted grille borrowed from the Escalade SUV. The new grille gives the 2008 STS-V a more aggressive look and makes a definite design statement.
As in previous years, however, the STS-V's truly defining component is its high-performance engine. The 469-horsepower, 4.4-liter, supercharged version of Cadillac's Northstar V8 engine drives the vehicle from 0 to 60 in 4.8 seconds. It links to a six-speed automatic transmission.
The 2008 STS-V comes well-equipped with a long list of standard and luxury features, including a deluxe leather-wrapped steering wheel with wood accents, leather seats, a dual-zone automatic climate control system, electronic cruise control, a leather-wrapped instrument panel and center console, keyless entry and ignition, the On-Star system, and a 15-speaker Bose surround-sound stereo system with a six-disc in-dash CD-DVD player.
Upgraded safety features include active steering, which drivers can add as an option to the STS-V's StabiliTrak electronic vehicle stability enhancement system. Active steering turns the wheels into a skid when the rear wheels lose traction.
In addition, two new safety features aid drivers when cruising at highway speeds. A new Lane Departure Warning System alerts the driver when the car strays from its lane, while a Side Blind Zone Alert System signals an alert when cars on either side enter the driver's blind driving zones. Both features can be engaged or disabled by the driver.
