Word on the street is that the next-gen Cadillac CTS-V (http://www.autoblog.com/cadillac/cts-v/), due as a 2014 model, will retain its force-fed powerplant but its design will be based on the modern 6.2-liter LT1 (http://www.autoblog.com/2012/10/24/meet-the-lt1-the-corvette-c7s-new-6-2-liter-small-block-v8/) that will find a home under the hood of the new Corvette (http://www.autoblog.com/chevrolet/corvette/). General Motors is reportedly working on two variants of the engine, one supercharged and the other with twin turbochargers - one of the engines will serve duty in the upcoming CTS-V and the brand's upcoming rear-wheel drive flagship (http://www.autoblog.com/2012/08/27/cadillac-may-be-working-on-not-one-not-two-but-several-new-fla/). Expect the engine, regardless of its intake method, to make more power than the current powerplant (a 6.2-liter V8 with an Eaton Twin Vortices Series supercharger developing 556 horsepower and 551 pound-feet of torque), but with improved efficiency.

The ATS-V (http://www.autoblog.com/cadillac/ats/), still officially unannounced (http://www.autoblog.com/2012/06/28/cadillac-ats-v-coupe-talks-resurface-new-convertible-model-in/), will reportedly get a twin-turbocharged V6. That engine should be plenty powerful, but if consumers demand even more displacement there is room under the hood for something as large as a 7.0-liter V8, say reports. Wouldn't that be fun?Next Cadillac CTS-V to get forced-induction V8; ATS-V a twin-turbo V6 (http://www.autoblog.com/2013/02/19/next-cadillac-cts-v-to-get-forced-induction-v8-ats-v-a-twin-tur/) originally appeared on Autoblog (http://www.autoblog.com) on Tue, 19 Feb 2013 09:14:00 EST.
