For Sale: 2006 Cadillac XLR-V in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

We are proud to present this 2006 Cadillac XLR V. Cadillac's V-series is to that nameplate what AMG is to Mercedes or M is to BMW. It's the high-performance wing of the company, where the original product (and its price) gets kicked up some serious notches. With its XLR-V, Cadillac puts a player in among the SL55 AMGs and Jaguar XKRs of the world. The new supercharged 4.4-liter version of General Motors's Northstar V-8 is an exceedingly sophisticated engine. Pressurized by a GM-designed and patented Roots-type blower made by Eaton, the engine supplies prodigious torque throughout most of its operating range. Continuously variable valve timing at all four cams undoubtedly helps spread the available torque around so the car almost always responds to a jab of the pedal with a surge of acceleration. The Northstar is also endowed with desirable versatility, able to purr around at lower engine speeds as befits a luxury marque, then snarl to the redline with almost shocking ferocity. Part of this Jekyll-and-Hyde act is due to a muffler that suppresses low-rev noise levels and then switches to a more free-flowing mode at higher speeds when a vacuum-operated valve opens, allowing the exhaust gases a more direct path to the atmosphere. The engine block is a unique casting that provides improved coolant flow and has a new oil gallery to supply under-piston cooling jets. The engine manages to punch out 443 horsepower at 6400 rpm from the factory. More important to everyday users is the 414 pound-feet of torque, of which 90 percent is available between 2200 and 6000 rpm from factory. All that torque just about precludes the need for a downshift in most scenarios, but the intelligent 6L80 six-speed automatic transmission will probably hand you one (or two) anyway when you squeeze the throttle. This rear-mounted six-speed provides almost intuitive response to a driver's inputs with Caddy's performance shift algorithm, which refrains from shifting up on a trailing throttle when cornering.Options on this 2006 Cadillac XLR-V include: Air Conditioning, AM/FM Radio, CD Player, Automatic Hard Top Convertible, Cruise Control, Heated Seats, Power Brakes, Power Steering, Power Locks, Power Seats, Power Windows, Power Mirrors, Tilt Wheel, Keyless Entry, Seat Belts, Driver Airbag, and Anti-Theft System.
