    guys... tiny blown engines are not the future

    this is the future (near future)



    and this is the present


    i'm not saying ICE powered vehicles will go away entirely, but there are other alternatives

    ...

    in theory, i like the range-extended electric propulsion vehicles (volt, elr)
    much more practical than the model-s right now
    kind of like a best of both worlds gap filler until battery and power grid technology can catch up

    Rightfully so. I agree that there's no replacement for displacement however the comparible V8 at the same HP gets worse gas mileage. I average 18 MPG with my SC 3.6DI which is better than my friend's '11 V. He hardly gets me in a 1/4 mile. I find that most V8 owners are bothered by little engines performing as good or better than their larger displaced power plants.

    I think we will be devoid of news until late 2013 while they release the new CTS. Once that has calmed down, then we should hear something.
    I also think that since the new M3/M4 is a turbo 6 so will the ATS-V at least for the 1st couple years.
    But if Caddy is listening...get it into this car sooner than later. You have a chance to jump start the germans...not just benchmark them. It seems like a no brainer to me.
    Priced well, at 420HP it would be the hottest car in the segment...which is what they want don't they?

    Electric vehicles will never be the future until we find more efficient ways of making the electricity. If every ICE car in the US were replaced by electrics right now, we'd be doomed.

    every horse was not immediately replaced by a horse-less carriage ... we would have been doomed in that situation too

    There is a difference between harvesting a fuel source and reinventing an entire process...

    making it ,storing it, transferring it, and in making the batteries. Nothing about Hybrid vehicles or electric cars is a better way to transport people about their daily lives. Except unless you care to smell your own farts.

    Future schmuture, what matters to the ATS-V is three model years, and the V8 will be plenty viable in that timeframe.

    Hmm.. If we eliminate that awful DOD feature, we could reduce V8 displacement to, say, 5.5 liters; and if we can't get sufficient torque as NA, strap on the TT. Voilą, we now have a smaller, but very potent, version of what may wind up in the V3. Just add the TR6070 as the standard transmission, along with Brembo brakes, magnetic shocks, 2 stage exhaust, etc., and we have the makings of a proper ATS-V, and get separation from the V Sport, or whatever. Cadillac, listen up!

    I hope that Cadillac monitors this thread and listens to potential customers. If they want an exclusive sedan, ignore the flakey marketing types and listen to the enthusiasts that will ultimately determine credibility in the super sedan category.

    Most people that buy cars are not enthusiasts though. Sometimes we need to pick and choose our battles and count our blessings.

    the existence of a 6MT F10 m5 exclusively for North America for example. Everywhere else in the world that car is automatic only.

    The fact that Cadillac so finely tuned this chassis to be as good as it is *and* said ultimately 'no' to a FWD ATS (that very nearly happened) are also wins.

    a 6MT for the 2.0T RWD car is also a win, as Lexus to my knowledge offers no 6MT in any of their IS models, which btw is the car that just beat the 3 series in a recent Car and Driver comparison.

    Cadillac's certainly listening to us, but as the saying goes, you can't always get what you want.

    That said, I certainly hope they listen a bit more

    I think that car guys know best when it comes to the halo/high performance editions. I don't think that we're "lucky" to have what is given. Cater to us and we will help far more than the country club set that will obsess over the TTV6. I thought that Cadillac was trying to break away from its decades older mold, but it needs to resist older ways and realize that the success that the "V 's" have given it will propel it from the past. I think that Lutz and other car guys know it.
