    The LT1 hasn't been used since '97.

    Re: LT1 engine in '15 CTS-V?

    The reused the name LT1 for the new 6.2 V8 in the C7 Corvette. So yes, a supercharged version of that - or maybe turbocharged - is almost guaranteed to be in the next CTS-V. GM hasn't confirmed anything, it just fits with everything we know about GM and the CTS-V. With MPG a priority for them now they're going to want DoD, direct injection, active fuel management in the next CTS-V, and the new LT1 is now a parts bin motor, that's how they made the LSA.

    I heard 600 HP on the '15 CTS-V LT1 motor. Lingenfelter says limited up-tuning potential because of direct injection. We'll see......

    Re: LT1 engine in '15 CTS-V?

    No one has any facts on the engine in the '15 CTS-V. (The above speculation of a supercharged LT1 is based on Corvette facts and a leaked render of a future Corvette engine bay and is pretty solid, though.)

    No one knows when the '15 CTS-V will be announced, or even if it will be a '15 at all.

    Re: LT1 engine in '15 CTS-V?

    thanks Jinx. I just bought a 14 CTS-V sedan and it's the old body style. I also hear the CTS-V coupe might not be produced at all.
    any idea?

    What color is the new ride?

    I haven't heard anything concrete about the ATS or CTS coupes. They're off, they're on, they're off, they're on, I've lost track.

    No, the Vsport is an intermediate model. It's not the new CTS-V.

    What he said. The V-Sport is NOT the new V3.

    Re: LT1 engine in '15 CTS-V?

    And there may never be a V3. I'm doubtful because:

    1) The V-sport monicker dilutes the value of the "V" branding and makes it confusing. They can't sell a CTS-V alongside a V-Sport without confusing the hell out of customers.

    2) The pricing announced for the V-Sport of a $59K base price puts it too close to the current V pricing. If they try and slot another model above the V-Sport, you're looking at an $80 - 90K car, which is getting awfully close to M5 and E63 territory, and I don't think the marketplace will support that.

    3)What caddy has done with the V looks eerily similar to what Lexus did with the IS-F (which has been killed off): They launched a next gen chassis, but kept the IS-F for another year on the old chassis, while creating a bunch of "F-Sport" models without the power of the IS-F, then killed the IS-F.

    1. "They can't sell a CTS-v alongside a V-Sport without confusing the hell out of customers."
    M sport and M.
    S-line and S.
    The market disagrees.

    2. Why shouldn't a CTS-V that competes with the M5 and E63 in every way be competitively priced?

    3. The performance reputation isn't as important to Lexus as it is to Cadillac. And few outside the most loyal Lexus fans would argue that the IS-F was as successful as the Vs have been.
