    The 2014 will launch with an 8 speed from what I've heard. It'll also debut a 2nd generation 3.6L V6 if my source is correct. So expect better power and FE at the same time!

A proper performance/racing style auto with a twin disk clutch that shifts at lightning speeds might be nice though.
    Most vehicles of that class in 2013 will be offering an 8 speed trans for performance and mileage. Even the Chrysler 300 V6 offers an 8 speed now and soon the Jeep Grand Cherokee will also and others in the Chrysler line will follow shortly. For GM, I believe the Corvette C7 will begin the roll-out of the 8 speed at first then maybe in the 2015 CTS. From what I read (not sure where) the development of the 8 speed was shelved due to the bankruptcy and was recently started up again.

    Ha! Wish that I could, Mr. Frontier. I appreciate your attempt, though!

    I'm just a direct message away if you'd ever like me to double check for breaking news.

    Maybe power folding heated mirrors would be nice a little bigger also.Don't care about turbos you can only go so fast anyways these & they burn enough fuel w/o turbo's(then you qualify for a gas guzzler tax)As far as pkgs. go they don't need so many offer 2 and be done with it top of the line and middle of the road Options are a PITA.I doubt I will buy another anyways.

    Any rumors on whether or not a manual transmission will be available? I am disappointed that the ATS will only have one with the 2.0T AND you won't be able to have the HUD or other electronic goodies with it.

    I saw one last night at my dealer. Only rumors at this point, and, as usual, we on this forum know more that most any and all salesmen. Ooops, my fault, I was talking about the ATS, not the CTS.

    Per this article, the 8 speed transmission production won't ramp up until Q1 2014 which may be late for the 2014 CTS rollout - Other articles indicate that Corvette and some trucks/suvs may be the first to get it.

    At least it's being made in Toledo. They do a pretty good job there.

    Re: 2014 Cadillac CTS Spied With Twin-Turbo V6 and Interior Shot!

    The XTS, because of its size, and price range, will slot just above the CTS, with competition from the likes of the 6Series, A6, LF, Equus , and CLS. The new TT addition to the V6, just shy of 400hp., will appear on the 2015 refresh of the XTS. Other new enhancements wiil include, many new apps. for CUE and enhancements, sort of a CUE 2, Cadillacs "Super Cruise" the 1st "in production" application is currently on schedule to launch on the 2015 XTS. The 2015 XTS models will be...Luxury, Premium, and Platinum, all more upscale with standard features. Base Model will be discontinued. Intellibeam, and power folding mirrrors are among the "enhancements" !

That's fine, but personally, I like the CTS Goldilocks size right now: not too big and not too small. Although I own a coupe, I think it applies equally to the sedan as well.

    Another question though, if the ATS is meant to compete with the 3-series (which I believe is appropriate), then where does the XTS fit in?
