K&N Press Release:

Give Your Cadillac 2016-2017 CTS-V Increased Airflow with a K&N Replacement Filter


The K&N 33-5059 is legal in all 50 states

The K&N replacement filter helps Your 6.2 L Cadillac CTS-V Breathe Better and Make More Power

The 2016 and 2017 Cadillac CTS-V are the third generation of the model that launched the Cadillac V-Series a decade ago. With this new model Cadillac introduced a new supercharged 6.2L V-8 engine that is SAE certified to produce 640 horsepower and 630 lb-ft of torque. The 6.2 L V8 is backed by Cadillac’s paddle-shift eight-speed automatic transmission featuring launch control and Performance Algorithm Shifting.


The 2016-2017 CTS-V was designed and developed to be able to participate in track driving without making any modifications, as virtually everything required was already engineered into the car.

These include a Brembo high-performance brake system ready track days straight from the showroom floor, third-generation Magnetic Ride Control that delivers a 40-percent faster damping response, a driver-selectable track mode which adjust a number of electronic variables, and sticky 19-inch Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires. From the factory, the CTS-V can corner at nearly 1.0 g.

The power behind the new CTS-V’s capability is an all-new, more powerful 6.2L supercharged V-8 engine. The engine and heads are all aluminum, with a bore of 4.06” and a stroke of 3.62”, which helps allow for a maximum engine speed of 6600 rpm.


The K&N Replacement Filter is engineered to fit perfectly in the original factory airbox

Everything you need to install a K&N Filter in your 2016-2017 CTS-V is in the box

The supercharger’s rotors are smaller in diameter than previous versions, allowing for a quicker spin-up and a higher max rpm. A more direct supercharger discharge creates less turbulence, reducing heat and speeding airflow into the engine. To handle the increase in boost stronger Rotocast A356T6 aluminum cylinder heads are installed with lightweight titanium intake valves.


While it seems that all the bases are covered, there’s more you can do with your 6.2 L Cadillac CTS-V, like install a K&N 33-5059 replacement air filter. These filters have been developed to increase up to 50% more air flow, which adds power to your air hungry supercharged 6.2 L engine.

When you have a large-displacement engine with forced induction, the engine “wants” as much intake flow as possible, as its ability to deliver fuel far exceeds the engine’s capacity to draw air. So to get more power out of your 2016 – 2017 6.2 L CTS-V engine, reducing resistance to the incoming air is key. This K&N 33-5059 is designed to improve response when you step on the throttle, and more torque throughout the operating range of the engine when you install a K&N replacement filter.


K&N replacement air filters are manufactured from multiple layers of oiled cotton filter media, rather than air flow-limiting and easily-clogged paper used in many OEM and replacement filters. The oiled cotton construction not only allows for increased air flow but also provides excellent filtration properties to ensure your Cadillac’s long engine life. This is well-proven by K&N’s sophisticated in-house ISO 5011 filtration efficiency laboratory. K&N adheres to strict International Standard Organization protocols, ensuring that K&N replacement air filters provide a high degree of airflow without sacrificing engine protection.


The only maintenance required for a K&N replacement filter is a service easily completed on your own. At intervals of 50,000 miles (depending on your driving conditions) utilize a K&N Air Filter Cleaning Kit to clean and re-oil your air filter -- bringing it back to brand-new condition and ready for another 50,000 miles of driving.

Your one K&N air filter is designed to last for the lifetime of your vehicle, which K&N guarantees will perform for up to 10 years or 1,000,000 miles without requiring replacement.
