The presenter expected car in showroom for June in USA and Late August for Canada. Rwd and awd release dates are the same. Three engine choices. No confirmation of wagon or coupe. Asked audience if V should be v6 turbo or a v8?

Uh-h ... what color is that? Looks sort of green, but is it really blue?

The head-on view of this car is excellent. Looks gray to me?

If I remember correctly it is most like the current cts Exterior Colour:Thunder Grey Chroma Flair

Sentiment was for a v6 turbo. Personally I am torn between 'no replacement for displacement' and v6 power is now better than v8's of 10 yrs ago. Think I'll keep my 90 IROC for that 'v8 muscle' feeling and have a cadillac for more sophisticated power/ handling

If it gets 30 mpg highway, I am all in for a turbo6. If not, gimme the V8.

That's what it looks like to me. I love that color in the sunlight, being inside doesn't do the color justice.

The ATS looks great from that angle... And I find it very interesting that people are now getting asked whether they prefer an ATS-V with a forced injected V6 or V8. They didn't ask this question in Detroit or Chicago. So they must be paying close attention to what people are saying in the forums...

... Asked audience if V should be v6 turbo or a v8?I missed this part. Very interesting. They're probably just stirring the pot, though, to pique public interest. I mean, do you think such an unscientific poll as this could really influence their decision?

Nah ... ain't gonna happen.

If GM decides on the TTV6, it has to be nudged up in HP from the Leno Camaro. Anyone know what the TQ numbers are on it?

I vote V8, no turbo 6 cyl.

The presenter is a colleague of mine. He was asking just for the sake of it. :)
