    Cadillac ATS-V - Twin Turbo V6

    The Cadillac ATS-V variants will use a twin-turbo V6 which will be competitive in it's segment (BMW M3, MB C63 AMG, etcetera). A V8 is not in the plans at this time. This CAN change - but as of now, it's not happening. All wheel drive is almost certain.

    AWD and the Twin Turbo are not going to happen on any version of this platform (even CTS).

    No way to package the front prop shaft to the front diff with all the turbo hardware.

    To clarify a bit, they won't happen TOGETHER.

    BUT, the Twin Turbo part will happen without the AWD part.

    Right?

    At least my source is right about the twin turbo V6. He/She has been saying this for over a year now.

    I saw articles stating V6 Turbo is out in favor of a 470HP DI V8.
    That would make it a real V.

    Sure hope so. *470 HP sounds good. A type of whatever engine in the C7 would be nice.

    Those articles are probably old. It's highly unlikely a V8 will find it's way into the Cadillac ATS-V. I really don't think we're going to see an M3 beater the first time around - just like with the CTS-V. What will set this car apart from the BMW is the interior - which should be phenomenal. The ATS-V will be an excellent all-around performer with impressive creature comforts and technology.

    Considering how far away the ATS-V is, its specs could change several more times before its release.

    Re: Cadillac ATS-V - Twin Turbo V6

    True. Especially considering the fact that Cadillac originally wanted a V8 in this car. The thing is - with Cafe and the fact that even BMW is moving away from the V8 in their M3 - it's highly unlikely...

    Re: Cadillac ATS-V - Twin Turbo V6

    Quite so. I agree the TTV6 is probably what will find its way into the V. As long as it has a flat torque curve and a nice sound, I think most enthusiasts will accept it.
    What are the rumor mills talking with the reported GM 8-speed these days?

    A GM V6 TT would be sad to see and lead to poor reliability.
    A GTR engine, it is not.
    Plus, it will be heavier than an NA DI V8.

    Lets hope GM reserves the V badge for cars with real engines.

    Ah yes, the inevitable comparison to the fabled GT-R.
    I hope GM's TTV6 is not a GT-R engine. It would suck to own an ATS-V whose drivetrain is only warrantied if you don't drive it.

    Thats the transmission, LOL.
    The GTR engine is solid and under tuned.

    GM V6TT will struggle at 380 and wont have any aftermarket suppprt, except for, maybey............ D3.
    GM needs to stay with what they are good at.
