    Re: ATS-V to be (finally!) unveiled at LA Show November 19th!

    Good news and I hope we get some "leaks" before then. There was a lot of old information in the article about the engine. I suspect that GM is sandbagging BMW by not disputing the TTV6 output rumors, and may be planning a surprise as it did for the V2. I'm still hoping (probably in vain) for a V8 as an option. The LS7 is an expensive, hand-built engine, but at least it's still around for the Z/28, and we wouldn't have that stupid DOD feature. Those that want it would be willing to pay for it and get the great sound of a NA V8. Hey, purists should get what they want, too. And please no flakey, fake engine noise in the cabin.

    The ATS-V test videos sound like a TTV6. I'll go ahead and get the CTS-V, with a proper engine (supercharged V8). The CTS-V won't need any fake engine noise either, judging by the test videos.

    Still, I think the ATS-V will be a great looking and performing car. I'm just afraid it's going to come up short of the M3 right out the gates, unless GM really turned up the wick on that 3.6 TT.

    Yeah, the videos did highlight a V6 (ugh) but there could have been other cars on the track. We don't need a "me too" engine. Leaders don't have to be on the same page. The American approach is best.

    Leaders are NEVER on the same page... That wouldn't make them a LEADER now would it!!

    I know C & D has 'insider' access... And I want these unveilings to be accurate. I believe I called these releases in another post ;-)

    But why no mention of where the news was discovered? Or who, named or unnamed, leaked the info?

    Speculative a little? Similar to what I GUESSED? You have more resources/access available to you esteemed car periodical. :-)

    I'll believe it when I see it C & D.

    I mean, GM can dial up or down on the boost to adjust output hp, and "yes," they'll test it according to SAE procedures.

    Another article saying the same.

    http://www.motorauthority.com/news/1...detroit-report

    I bet the MSRP is 54995 base ATS-V

    Went to get the oil changed in my wife's SRX the other day, and while I waited I walked through the showroom and looked at the cars. There was a CTS Vsport stickered at $71k. Could an ATS-V at $55k seem proportional?

    With GM's rash of overpricing these Cadillacs... Probably $59k. Fully optioned hopefully stops at $67k.

    59 stacks should get you:

    Digital configurable gauges (V specific cluster)
    eLSD
    8-speed auto (no charge manual)
    Dual mode exhaust (wide open with V setting)
    Microfiber/leather interior
    6 piston front/four piston rear Brembos
    CUE with navigation

    Options?????

    Carbon brakes
    Carbon interior
    Sunroof
    Graphite wheels
    Graphite grilles

    The CTS-Vsport base MSRP is 59,995. Since the ATS-V is gonna have the same powertrain I don't think it's too far outta the ball park. I guess it depends how crazy they get, maybe they do the same pricing/option structure and have an ATS-V base and ATS-V premium for 10k more?

    At these kind of prices there are many other options available.

    That's debatable as of yet, we need to wait till next year. The Audi S4 isn't in the same performance league and the RS4 still isn't coming stateside. The AMG C63 is a Coupe only, the sedan isn't been for sale yet.

    So the M3 and the ISF are the main competition.

    And we don't have final pricing yet. Either way, when it comes to 400-500hp, RWD, and a small/midsize sedan, there actually aren't that many options until you leave the luxury segment.

    Even if you do leave the luxury market what are some options of a 400-500hp small to mid size sedan with RWD in the $65K and lower? Not to call anyone out, just literally sitting here having a tough time coming up with some.
