    And in case you haven't notices, quang, AMG is quickly going away from the NA big engines for TTV8s. The next M3 is supposed to go back to a blown 6. And Audi just announced their big A8 sedan will have a supercharged 6 cylinder engine.

    So quit your whining, quang...
    so that is your expect from a Luxury manufacturer alway say we're the starndart of the world ? if you can't do that..you shouldnt say that..it sound ridiculous
    A manufacturer need to compare with the other manufacturer to make them better.
    the new benz now has Twinturbo V8 in the new CLS and S car line soon..sooner or later the C-class will offer it also.

    i agree you're a Cadillac Fan..and So am i..and of course a Custommer also...

    the V we own now is Extremly nice for its segment, i completely agree with you. That is the reason i take a lot of compare before purchance car... but the ATS..we haven't know yet..it just a photo.. No one have test it yet..Hasn't you ?.. and as i remember, first time when i ask the forum about the CTS-V, i found the Interiol of the CTS-V is extremly nice, but no, it is a concept and the Production model is not nice like that. BUt i accept, because at that price, you can't find anything better than it.
    IMO i still prefer Supercharger over turbo...turbo car burn oil and lag. My audi before lag a lot..don't know what the best tech it offer like it Advertising but 1.8 TSI doesn't sound nice like it is. i still prefer drive my 2003 Benz with superchargerrather than the 1.8 TSI which i already sold....

    i can warranty with u, i saw a lot of guy in my country race Z06 N/A or ZR1 SC and 911 turbo..Vette beat 911 all day long.. Even the same HP, the V8 alway stronger than H6 in low end torque + supercharger alway pump air in every RPM...or whatever BMW u bring to race with it.... i think the reason they use turbo because it cheaper to manufacturer than supercharger.

    the Mercedes S-class or Audi, maybe only in USA it doesn't have V6 cylinder. In my country or EU or China, a lot and a lot of Mercedes S320, S350, S280 CDI. from old to new. And the Audi is not an exception, they has V6 long time ago.

    You're fan of Cadillac, i agree but have u even think in your mine..why Cadillac before is no1 in USA and in other country is the first choice after the other brand... but now, it sound terrible, even In the USA, Lexus outsell the Cadillac...
    and People Bring Cadillac to compare with Lexus.. ....and Cadillac car worth less when it used ? why ? the first Lexus LS400 was born for fighting with E-class and Normal cadillac..and now Where is it at ?
    if u are a good fan, a real ethusiast, i hope u should donate your opinion and hope they listen..rather than..oh oh cadillac is best ..or bla bla bla...

    yes. Instead of venting into the atomosphere, it recirculates.

    I don't know a second language at all, so...

    I understand what he's saying very clearly.

    Re: IF the Cadillac ATS-V gets a V8...

    Nothing new to post, just thinking that this reminds me of a few years ago with all the speculation that went into the powerplant and hp rating that the V2 was going to have. Hardly anyone speculated that it would be as high as 556 hp ... we were rather pleased to put it mildly.

    My point is, it was lots of fun tossing out numbers just as it is now. Anticipation. That's what made it fun. Just like now. It's going to be good, we just don't know how good.

    Re: IF the Cadillac ATS-V gets a V8...

    Looking at the ATS on the display stand at the Philly auto show on friday I just can't see a V8 being put into it. Not with all the other competitors downsizing their engines. But the pre-production review in the March Car and Driver mentions a Corvette V8 will fit. I think GM hasn't decided yet. BTW, the ATS look great in person, much better than the photos.

    The ATS most assuredly fits with the SBC V8. The TT V6 is actually physically larger than the SBC V8.

    I'd believe it.

    Packaging is probably one of the reasons the SBC V8 has stayed around this long. Take the cam(s) out of the block and put them on top of the heads plus all the FI plumbing and you're bumping into the envelope.

    Re: IF the Cadillac ATS-V gets a V8...

    I may have already mentioned this but since the 3.6 liter directed injected V6 is going to compete with the 335i, there's not going to be a TT V6 in a regular ATS - so I'm almost positive it'll be going into the ATS-V. There's really no need for a V8 here but I'm not saying I wouldn't like to see one.

    Honestly? That really sucks. the N55 and N54 are such good engines stock and they have large aftermarket. Sticking with a N/A V6 ensures aftermarket for the ATS will be limited to the V and 2.0T..

    The 2.0T is going to be the performance car. 270 HP with a 6-Speed Manual, The extra 50 HP of the V6 will easily be overcome with the aftermarket.

    The 2.0T is where it is at.
