    2009 CTS V? What will the STS V?

    I saw the news the 09 CTS V will have 550 horses!
    Will they even make a STS V in 09? Given the higher price I suppose Cadillac is going to have give it 600+ horses? Maybe the v12 is coming out early... Now that would be a surprise.

    My service manager @ my dealership said the STS will be removed from the Cadillac fleet because of the increase in size of the CTS. Supposedly Caddy will also build a new DTS car that is rear wheel drive to take on the 7 series BMW @ the S class mercedes.

    Being that the STS is leaving, I wouldn't be surprised if there was no 2009 STS-V. The STS and DTS are being replaced by one new rear wheel drive vehicle almost the same size as the DTS..

    With the new CAFE standards now on the visible horizon, I don't think you'll see a lot of engineering time plowed into bigger horsepower motors. The CTS-V and the STS-V are different machines for different drivers and I don't think there will be a big push to make sure the STS makes more power than the CTS. If the push is to outperform everything in the price/size class, Caddy will have to contend with the new Nissan Skyline GTR, and I don't see how they can do it.

    The STS is a iron first in a velvet glove, nicely placed 75% of the way up between a Jag R-type and an M5. I don't find the additional performance in the M5 to be anything remotely useable in the real world. If I want pure performance I'll drive my shifter kart, which can stomp any M5 for a whole lot less money.

    Didn't GM state that the STS will be gone AFTER the 2009 model year?

    They are barely making any 2008 STS-Vs as it is now and I don't know why. They are selling every single one they make.

    I think the 2009 CTS-V will be a hit and will be in huge demand, so if anyone wants one, they better get on the list NOW!

    WTF?

    No new STS V? I was hoping for a Super Charged 427!

    There is a definite need for a 4 door performance luxury sedan by an American owned manufacturer. A whole bunch more people would be forced to go to the foreign dealers..

    thats a CTS coupe. I suspect IF there is a new STS(v) it will be on the Zeta platform.

    Maybe the Zeta platform with the Aussie V12 for a V?

    It's possible.. it would be a step above the Vette motor in the CTS

    The 2009 STS-V will exist, it will have the HP bumped up to 520.
