im very sad to say the V motor is really not changing.. if you scroll down this site youll see the 443HP motor is standard on the 2009 XLR-V. kinda sucks, really wanted to see more power to keep up with everyone else.
there was talk that a Super V was in the works with 505 HP because I have seen a mule with bigger meats in the back.. NO cameras or camera phones are allowed into some of the buildings at GM. that was spoted on the streets and they can be posted.
The head lights were different looking on the ones I saw.. We will have to wait and see what they are going to go with.

Re: New 2009 XLR-V seen today
Unless they did something really great with the interior I'll keep our '08. Those side vents look stupid! I also thought the open egg crate grill would flow better than it does. The tail lights have a bit of Fast and the Furious (like so yesterday) look to them. The only thing that I see that I really like is the exhaust tips. They flow into the overall design and look like they "belong" there. The rest of the exterior changes look like they were forced to fit into the design.
