    That's why I didn't wait for it and bought a 2008 STS-V instead.

    The 2012 Buick LaCrosse GS (all wheel drive) is very, very likely to be getting this 3.0 liter twin turbo V6 - which means it's also very likely to be available in the AWD XTS as well.

    The twin-turbo V6 was confirmed to me by a rep at the Mainstreet in Motion event. He says it will make crazy power and torque, but I prefer a V8 anyway.

    Even 400 horsepower isn't "crazy" anymore. But let's see what happens...

    My question is how much is all that horsepower going to have to move? I'm kind of glad I got the last year of the DTS'. Same with my Deville. Got the last of the 4.9L and she still can hang with the best of them.

    I'm guessing over 4000 pounds.

    Well at least we know it won't be that sporty.

    Re: Twin Turbo 3.0 Likely Coming To Cadillac XTS

    I get a funny feeling this car will be far more sporty than the current DTS, however.. In twin turbo form it'll be much faster - and I think it's going to be a pretty good handling full-sizer.. I'm really starting to get a pretty good feeling about the Cadillac XTS. I just hope they do something more with the exterior.

    FYI, 4000 pounds isn't really considered "a lot" these days.

    An M5 has a curb weight of 4400 pounds.


    But I guess those aren't that sporty either.

    Considering how the ATS is going to weigh close to 4000 pounds, I think the XTS will weigh close to the M5.. Still, I think it's going to be a pretty good handling vehicle.. We'll have to wait and see..

    Me either so i did the same also. Have feeling we are in the minority as the sts-v in my opinion is a steal. Just no demand for the sts-v.

    The XTS is like a fat LaCrosse. So if you have engine choices making 250 hp + then you will be fine.
