    2009 Xlr-v

    So i was doing some research because im planning on giving up my XLR next year for the a 2009 V series and i came a across a site were they mention it will be the quickest GM built vehicle out there. Considering they are releasing the CTS-V next year with that crazy ass beefed up engine it would seem logical they would do the same to the XLR. I really hope they do something great for the 2009 models cause i would hate to wait an extra year. So im just wondering if anyone else has heard or read anything that i might have missed, even some opinions would be great -thanks

    I hope they upgrade the HP of the new XLR V because they need to but... The new CTS V is not getting the 4.4 Northstar. It is either going to have the 6.2 liter S/C LSA engine putting around 550 to 575 hp or in just might get the 6.2 liter S/C LS9 engine that is going in the new ZR1 corvette and will be around 600HP. I am hoping for the LS9...

    You may see the XLR-V get dropped from the lineup due to less than expected sales.

    So I see they're going back to the 4.6 N*. I wonder if it will fit in my Eldo.

    XLR is not being dropped.
    They are giving it a facelift for '09 but some features will not change.
    I talked to the Brand Quality Manager and he was limited in what he could tell me.
    I didn't ask any V specific questions.
    If I hear anything else I'll let you guys know.

    The 09 ZR1 comming out in late 08 will be the quickest gm car at 620hp will hit 0-60 just north of 3 seconds, more then a 1/2 second faster then the Z06 and a top speed somewhere around 200mph.

    any ideas of what the facelift will entail? i'm hoping to be surprised and delighted, not merely bemused, by their editorial decisions. i love the current look.

    He didn't get specific with me, I suspect the primary difference will be in the nose, my guess is they will bring it closer to what CTS and STS currently are, but I haven't seen photos or anything.

    Re: 2009 Xlr-v

    Hmmmm.... interesting post. I would have to question some of the content of this article. Obviously Cadillac is not going to us at 4.4 N* in the CTS-V. As for extracting more power out of the STS-V and XLR-V, we have already proved that you can easily unlock HP on the SC 4.4 Northstar engine. In addition that the post if relatively dated 08/06. A lot has changed since then..

    We do know Caddy is looking for some type of refreshening for the XLR application. It will most likely get a small face lift and maybe a slight bump in power before it exits. The XLR will not be dropped anytime soon. It is a low volume vehicle and Cadillac understands that. It will be very interesting to see what happens with the XLR-V in the next few years...It might make sense to drop the new ZR1 engine in the XLR-V before the new body change...

    Thanks,

    I think someone posted a thread that stated GM refuse to do the blown 4.6 N*. I'll see if I can find it.

    If you read about what cadillac is doing with the newer performance engines (3.6 V6DI one featured on the 08 cts, and 09 CTS-V) they are doing more Direct Injection. Because it burns better and it get better mpg's. But thats what I have heard.
