Any interest in AWD on the next CTS-V?
It would definitely help hook up all of that power at launch.:thumbsup:

It should be an option for those that have to contend with snow, etc., and/or drag race. Otherwise, I would prefer to save the weight.

There has been many threads on topic of AWD. For example::

OMG YES!!!!! I would love an AWD V Coupe please. With AWD you could go with thinner tires giving a better ride w/o sacrificing performance. I have driven several 600-800hp AWD coupes and found 0-60 times under 3 seconds on street tires and great cornering to boot. The V could perform on a hole new level if even with added weight. Just my 2 cents

I have heard that V3 may have some kind of AWD with electric motors.
Can anybody confirm this?

I can't see GM debuting that technology on Cadillac's balls-out midsize sedan. They'd use it to make an efficiency play, not add heavy batteries to the V. And they introduced the CTS with mechanical AWD, so for that car I think the door is closed.

However, that might be a play they make with the next SRX.

I don't want the weight of it nor the inherent understeer.

Porsche is also using electric motors to add 285 hp on their 918 super-car for total of 883 hp and 994 ft.lb. of torque.
