    2015 ZO6 rumored 620hp/650lb-ft torque. What's it mean for new CTS-V?

    Specs have leaked for the upcoming 2015 C7 Z06, to be revealed at NAIAS next week (1/13) and they are MONSTERS -- 620hp/650lb-ft torque. Since CTS-V will no doubt share this motor, and no doubt they'll down reg it to give the Vette some breathing room. Sooooo, what do you guys think? 580hp/620lb-ft torque.

    It's GONNA BE AWESOME. The other question remains WHEN. I'm guessing CTS-V will be intro'd at LA Auto Show in November 2014.

    Thoughts?

    CTS-V, i heard, will be force-fed a LS7.

    hp wise would be around 575-610 hp.

    LS7 anything is wishful thinking, for CTS-V or any future GM vehicle.

    LS7 is done and gone. Long reign the LT4!

    Since the Z06 won't be delivered to customers until "early next year" what it means for V3 is a long wait.

    Revised numbers in this morning's announcement btw are "more than 625hp and 635lbft of torque." Also an eight-speed automatic that's 4Kg lighter than its predecessor.

    What do you think the chances are of the third generation CTS-V not being available until late 2015? Good, I'd imagine... That's a long wait. And that would mean ANOTHER year of second generation CTS-V while the third generation CTS is available...

    Actually I remember reading over on the cts v2 forums that you can no longer build a new cts-v. Whatever is left on lots is it.

    ^^^ yep noticed and have heard the same thing. My guess is that New York Auto Show will have ATS-V intro (with vehicles avail by summer) and then CTS-V in LA ( with vehicles avail by spring 2015, which would line up w Z06 availability. Sigh. Such a long wait for the really good stuff!!!

    Chicago has always been known to be a "truck show" -- maybe chevy unveils a hi-po silverado. Bet nothing for caddy tho
