    Thumbs up The Cadillac ATS-V is my next Cadillac.. Is it yours?

    I'm pretty much convinced that I'm buying this car if it has a V6 or V8 with forced induction. I want something comfortable, luxurious (feature-wise), at least as fast as the current CTS-V, fairly affordable ($50k new?) and modifiable.. I'm not looking for a track car. I want a daily driver that can keep up with the best of them...

    How about you?

    Agreed. Although a TT6 would be cool, I'd probably just take the step up to the CTS-V

    It should have whatever the base Vette engine is -- presumably a Gen V smallblock with direct injection and 450ish hp -- and a 6 spd manual. And a sunroof. And raven black paint.

    But I'll probably buy a CPO second-gen CTS-V instead.

    Just read new Motor Trend,GM to spend 890 million to develop new V8 for our Cadillacs, sounds good to me.I hope this is true.

    That $890 million investment isn't going toward a new Cadillac-only engine, it's for the upcoming Gen5 smallblock. Read GM's press release.

    Good. I'm glad GM is committed to the V8.

    Assuming the ATS is like GM says it's going to be, then I think I'll buy an ATS-V a few years into production to replace the Gen 1 CTS-V I want to buy this year (so in 5-6 years).

    Although the next gen CTS-V does look nice too, but I think will be priced out of my range, since it probably be closer to the old STS-V.

    I like the idea of the NA V8, especially if it will be a type of the Corvette engine. But Cadillac will really have to sell me on ultimate refinement for the ATS-V. The current CTS-V started it, the 'Little V' should continue it exponentially. Superior material quality from the headliner to the carpet (mircofiber?). Technology from seamless iPhone integration to updated keyless go (pushbutton?).
