Cadillac executives have reportedly confirmed plans to introduce the 2016 CTS-V at the North American International Auto Show.

The company is keeping details under wraps but previous spy photos have shown the model will have an aggressive front fascia with a revised grille. The high-performance sedan will also have a bulging hood, a rear diffuser and a four-tailpipe exhaust system - among other things.

Cadillac has been relatively tight-lipped about performance specifications but the CTS-V is expected to use a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine. It produces 650 bhp (485 kW) and 650 lb-ft (880 Nm) of torque in the Corvette Z06 but it could be detuned for use in the Cadillac.
