Stupid question, but is that based off the 6.2L used in the Escalades and Yukon XL Denalis?

Wow, GM is really stepping it up here. I just wish they would get rid of that crappy looking steering wheel. Looks like the same one found in a base Chevy Uplander minivan, minus the leather.

It uses the LS3 block out of the 2008 Corvette.

The 2009 CTS-V has a 6.2L supercharged LS engine (dubbed the "LSA").
The Corvette ZR1 which was just revealed yesterday has a 6.2L supercharged LS engine (dubbed the "LS9") putting out between 620 and 650hp (which quite possibly may turn out to be conservatively estimated numbers).

My guess is that the LSA is a detuned version of the engine in the ZR1 (remember that the first CTS-V shared engines with the then top of the line Corvette Z06). Am I far off to expect a CTS-V with a powertrain similar to the ZR1 and priced alongside the current M5?

From what I understand, the LS9 is handbuilt while the LSA will be detuned and is to be built on an assembly line. That will probably help to keep the costs down on the CTS-V.

Will this be the last one? Nooooo, but an interesting read.
