    I think GM knows they can't really play in this class anymore with pushrod engines. Which is why I am anxious to see what they do with the real V-series cars. I would be perfectly happy with an LT1 powered ATS-V, but those who are cross shopping the M3 would look at that as an antiquated dinosaur. They would be wrong, but that is still how they will see it. I am guessing at a tuned version of this engine, about 450-470 bhp. The real question is if they will keep on with the LSA in the CTS-V, or if they have something entirely new up their sleeve.

    🇺🇸🇺🇸. The new Corvette V8 engine will be the next V Series engine.

    I would be happy with an awd twin turbo CTS. The awd n* sts was a great drivers and could not be classified as a DTS.

    No! Cadillac had to fill the gap with the V-Sport. It like the Audi line: "A", "S", "RS". In Cadillac it will be: CTS, CTS V-Sport, CTS-V.

    The CTS-V is suppose to come with a twin-turbo V8 is the rumor but it could be the Corvette 6.2L Engine in the new C7!

    I'm new on this board, but will the V-Sport still have folding rear seats? I LOVED that feature and miss it a lot in mine now.

    The V-series sedans don't have folding seats.

    I had the Pontiac GXP that had them. I thought that the standard CTS had them too. Best thing that they ever did to cars so you don't have to get a wagon.

    Re: 2014 CTS VSPORT Announced

    I hope I'm wrong, but I'm doubtful on the likelihood of a next-gen CTS-V with 500+ HP. Here's what makes me fearful:

    1) The V-sport monicker dilutes the value of the "V" branding and makes it confusing. They can't sell a CTS-V alongside a V-Sport without confusing the hell out of customers.

    2) The pricing announced for the V-Sport of a $59K base price puts it too close to the current V pricing. If they try and slot another model above the V-Sport, you're looking at an $80K car, which is getting awfully close to M5 and E63 territory, and I don't think the marketplace will support that.

    3)What caddy has done with the V looks eerily similar to what Lexus did with the IS-F - which has been killed off: They launched a next gen chassis, but kept the IS-F for another year on the old chassis, while creating a bunch of "F-Sport" models without the power of the -F, then killed the IS-F.

    I'd love to see a CTS-V with 500+ HP, and a decent auto tranny/DCT so I could avoid wasting the extra coin on an E63, but I'm doubtful.

    I doubt there will be another pure "V" badge now. Cadillac proved their point with the V and are done with the HP race for awhile. Also holding the "ring" record for a time showed that they had a car to go with the power. Congratulations Cadillac! Their focus now will be a car with just enough HP to make it interesting. V power was over the top for a everyday luxury sedan. I'd bet sedan sales will be much stronger with the TT over Vpower. The V was more of a toy, the Sport will be more of a daily driver. If the Sport will run out at 170, what would be the reason to build another V? Does anyone need a 200mph 4dr? I'll be test driving one for sure.

    You are dreaming if you think Cadillac will cancel the CTS-V.

    3rd gen will carry on with ~580 hp, and a reduction in weight will improve performance over 2nd gen. My guess is about 3800-3900 lbs. A 400-500 lbs weight drop.

    I think Looney might be onto something - as much as a hate to think it.
