    CTS Premium RWD is $49,185.
    CTS-V is $65,410.
    ATS 3.6L Premium RWD is $47,590.
    I predict ATS-V will be the answer to the $64,000 question.

    I agree w/M5eater.....the masses that are the target demographic will always dictate the end versions....only a small percentage ever even find these forums or even care about the mechanical side. It is car they drive and put gas in and never open the hood.

    I'm all for just strapping one of these on and go:

    Maybe $64k fully loaded. Hopefully the starting price will be $54995.

    I would bet this thing will start at between 59-61 Grand and go a bit over 70.

    The car aggressively mirrors 3 series pricing.

    A C63, and M3 are both 60-80K cars. Even the Flabby IS-F that starts at 61,780 and has only 3 trim package choices bumps 68K.

    well I dunno, 4XX ponies, TT, good tuning possibilities, call me glass half full but I think with some small tweaks this thing'll be a rocket. Whats a camaro SS have, 425?

    I did drive the new XTS TT v6 today (which is what made me comment here in the first place) and it was DAMN FAST! even for that boat, that engine in the ATS will be nothing to sneeze at

    it will have good possibilities, but seeing as this brand has very nearly shit for vendors, it's still going to take a few good years before we see widespread cracking of the ECU and figure out what a good tune can pull.

    The top mount water IC bricks are a shitty design to work with in trying to get something aftermarket to work, and of course, being D/I you'll have to deal with carbon deposits. The fact that the LF3 is only debutting in Cadillac's doesn't help.

    The LT1 will by far, be a better platform. The LF3 will need to get some momentum before it snowballs.

    The reason the V has such widespread support is because it piggybacks off the LS blocks in the camaro and vette.

    The LF3 can't even piggyback off the LFX in the camaro which itself has a lot of vendor support.

    I'm glad that the XTS TTV6 is really good, but the "V's" are supposed to be the ultimate, so we don't need another version of that engine for the ATS-V. They will be low production cars so who cares about mass appeal? Something for everyone in standard XTS's and CTS's, but the lowest common denominator is irrelevant for any "V." Otherwise, an LSA SS Chevrolet might be an alternative. Still, car guys can do more for Cadillac than country club lizards.

    There's a lot that could be said, but the facts are, the next M3 gets a tri-turbo N54. The LSA was mostly a blown LS3, and traditionally, General Motors has reserved corvette power to corvettes for at least 1 model year before supplanting it into 'lessor' vehicles (like the camaro)

    If the ATS-V gets even a mildly detuned LT1. Minds will be blown, but they may risk not beating the M3 at the numbers game, and ultimately, that's their mission; to beat BMW.

    Are we suggesting that the 420hp LF3 can be pushed into M3-beating territory but the 460hp LT1 can't? Surely not. Remember, this is not a shadetree boost-till-it-blows job, this is a production automobile.

    And if anybody thinks GM is going to be precious about following vague old Corvette protection traditions when the mission is to beat the BMW M3, they need a time out.

    Cadillac really should create a focus group to discuss/decide this, if they haven't already... (hand raised)

    I don't think the ATS-V, even with a tuned LT1 (470-500hp) will undermine the forecasted market of the Stingray. It may very well give a kick in sales because of the potential of the LT1 experienced in the ATS-V. (win-win)

    I'm with you and would be happy to be a part so the marketing types will be minimized.

    This reminds of about 5-6 years ago when everyone was trying to guess what motor and hp rating the '09 CTS-V would have. Nobody, I mean NOBODY, guessed anything near 556 hp.

    I hope we're as pleasantly surprised coming up when the ATS-V powerplant becomes known just as we all were back then when the LSA was announced.
