    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.

    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.

    Re: The Cadillac ATS-V is my next Cadillac.. Is it yours?

    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?).
