    XTS will get a TT V6

    http://www.freep.com/article/2013031...gned-CTS-sedan

    The article is mainly about the upcoming CTS, but the XTS is mentioned at the end.

    "GM also plans to offer the twin-turbo V6 in the Cadillac XTS large sedan.

    'All of the people who said xts needed a v8- well today you know why we did not do that. Twin Turbo v6 will make you smile, GM North America President Mark Reuss tweeted.' "

    Re: XTS will get a TT V6

    Finally, a reason to resist my temptation to buy a '13, and wait for the '14. Up until today, I was debating between the Audi A6 and the
    Cadillac XTS. I wanted the A6's drivetrain and transmission, but the Cadillac's exterior and interior design statements. Now, by waiting a few months, I'll have both in the twin turbo V-6. Thank you Cadillac.

    Here's another announcement:

    I must have missed something but the announcement at your post link is about the CTS not the XTS.

    See my original link from the Detroit Free Press. It's focused on the CTS, but the mention at the end that the XTS will also get the engine.

    No LS motor in the XLR? No V8 in the XTS? Hmmm.

    That answers my question on the XTS... No V8, not for me.

    TTV6 will make the XTS feel even more premium. For a stopgap vehicle, it's good to see Cadillac making XTS as good as can be. XTS AWD TTV6 just might be the sleeper hit of 2014

    Re: XTS will get a TT V6

    I'm sure it will be fantastic for whatever target market they are aiming at. I hope you're right.

    The XTS is competing with the likes of MBZ, BMW etc... Those Germans know they need to offer a variety of power options. Personally I don't buy cars that don't have a V8 (unless it's for my wife), and then I like that V8 to have gobs of low end power. As much as I like the look and feel of the XTS I don't have any interest in one with a V6, Turbo or not.

    Now that that announcement has been made, who's going to buy all the non-turbos sitting around dealer lots? Especially since the difference between them and the new Impala doesn't justify the $20K premium.

    They will most likely go to the fleet/limo/livery accounts..lol. I am happy to see that they are giving the XTS some more power to better compete. It still will not be enough to win over the V8 fans or anyone that dislikes the XTS but it will help Cadillac get a few more sales then they may have with just the 303HP engine choice. But at this point I think the new CTS will steal alot of sales away from the XTS. As much as I love full size cars I am willing to wait and see what the new mid size CTS looks like.

    First off, the TTV6 probably will debut when the CTS goes on sale late this year, and even then there is no timetable when the engine will find it's way into the XTS. That's a long time. Even then not everyone is interested in the hot engine. The fact that people are buying ATS models with the 2.5L engine proves that point.

    I saw a $399 per month lease for the XTS today.

    420 hp sounds like they have outdone the Northstar.

    I know its a bit premature. Anyone have a idea of how much more the TT would add to the price of the car?
