    ^^^^^^
    A 2014 CTS VSport 3.6TT starts at $60k and the top-of-the-line Premium is $70k. The upper limit is more than a base 2014 CTS-V, and the same as a V with a few options. By all accounts the VSport is an excellent car, but by no means is it a CTS-V.

    They probably just piped in the V8 sound through the speakers like the M5 to complete the illusion...

    Look on the bright side J, the board has been slow with not much new going on lately. This gave us something to laugh about...

    I just confirmed it. The 556 HP V is only in the wagon and the sedan. The 2014 V6 turbo sedan is called a V. So I say again, why be so stupid as to call it a V when its a watered down less powerful car. Its not a V so why tarnish the image of the V. In a couple of years anyone who sees a V will mostly think it's a slow V6. Not even close to the same league as a BMW or a Mercsedez. The Germas still do it better. They don't discontinue cars, if you have the money you can get a high horsepower package. I say again, north american companies are sometimes mickey mouse

    OMG... Please read here before ever posting again. We all know that they also make a V that's a 6 turbo. But it's not called a V. Its called a Vsport. Just like BMW makes an M as well as an Msport. They are still making a V for 2014 with the old body style and the V8. Come on man, stop hanging your pitches over the plate. You're really looking bad here... Somebody make the call to the bullpen and save this guy...

    Let's analyze the 15th post. The TTV6 car is called the V-Sport, not the V we know. Like it or hate it, that's what it is. Personally, I don't like GM watering down the V moniker either so I'm with you there but let's not forget that if I recall there are some watered down Germans, too. Hell, even Lexus has watered the F line now. Watering down the name, I'll give you that. I don't like it but it is what it is.

    Edit: Taken beat me to it. Sadly, Mo is retired.

    You're hurting my brain man! Go learn about Cadillac actual Vs BMW actual Ms and Mercedes actual AMGs. Before saying Mickey Mouse anymore. They all have the watered down sport versions in a capitalistic effort to make money. Thank god for capitalisim BTW. Your so called North American Companies are just now following suit of the "doing it better Germans" that have been fooling poeple like you for years!! Sorry your just catching up man. Seriously!

    BTW Mickey Mouse is a bad ass American! So stop bringing down his name with YOUR lack of knowledge. Where are you from Canada?! Make fun of that.... "A!"
