    Vsport 3952 lbs

    I do not see that this has been posted here, and I do not believe it was on the Caddy web site initially. The ‘Base Curb Weight’ of the Twin Turbo V6 [ Vsport ] is now listed under ‘Specs’ as 3952 lbs. 336 more than the base 2.0L Turbo.

    I was hoping for a bit less weight increase . . .

    Last curb weight I recall seeing for a 550i w/8-speed automatic is about 4400...

    Hmmmm. Wondering if that 3952 lb weight is not for the V sport but for The actual V?
    Doesn't seem like a Vsport would weigh that much.

    Re: Vsport 3952 lbs

    The weight sounds right for the V Sport, it is listed at 200 pounds greater than the NA 3.6. With the twin turbochargers and associated plumbing, air charge coolers, and perhaps some additional weight in the remainder of the drive train 200 pounds isn't much particularly with the HP gain. There is probably additional standard equipment on the V sport that is optional on the lower weight trims.

    The lightest of the ATS series comes in with a base weight of 3315 and that is a significantly smaller vehicle with a NA 2.5 4 cylinder and less content.

    For a well equipped midsize luxury sedan the low weight is impressive and providing space, power, and all of the mandatory safety equipment makes further weight loss very costly. Much of the advancement available through today's weight reduction technology is offset by market demand for gadgets and features along with federally mandated safety and emission equipment. It is a different world from years ago when Chevrolet even left the heater out of one Corvette model to save weight, now the lack of seat heaters (and coolers) would be considered "cheap".

    Edmunds lists the M5 weight at 4387, and while a full "V" CTS may weight more than the 3952 (of the V-Sport), it may still be hundreds under the BMW.

    They are probably putting the 6L80 transmission and a larger rearend to get that weight up to 3952 lb.

    Vsport will have an 8-speed transmission so no 6L80

    My V sedan is 4350 on wheel scales, with about 1/4 tank of gas. 400# less is a big chunk!

    My CTS-V sedan is 4170 pounds empty on the scales at Roebling Road Raceway and 4180 on the local truck scale. That is virtually no fuel, no driver, and an empty trunk.
