    I don't think GM wants to debut ATS-V and Corvette at the same show. Let Corvette have the spotlight at Detroit, then introduce ATS-V at Chicago or New York or even a European show. Or perhaps as late as Los Angeles.

    They debuted the V2 and ZR1 together in '08...

    ZR1 was a big deal, but not as big a deal as a whole new generation Corvette.

    Personally I hope ATS-V shows up in Detroit, because I want to see it sooner rather than later. I just don't expect it.

    I bet it's more to do with the TTV6 not being ironed out. If it had a V8, it would be ready for an NAIAS debut...

    I am all for a V6 TT. Ecoboost SHO owners are making 420 AWHP with meth injection on the stock 3.5L With associated drivetrain loss its 500+ Crank HP and not a single one has broken or transmission failures. It's too bad the turbos are so small!!

    Again, ad nauseum, and focusing on a street engine, if the TTV-6 is heavier than a comparable LSx V-8, has more moving parts and doesn't get significantly better gas mileage, and sounds like an insect, why??

    The April Car and driver says Buick will have a GNX with a 3.6TT V6 with 400 hp. Sounds like the upcoming ATS-V engine to me.

    Based on the Regal or LaCrosse?
    I assume that drivetrain will also be offered on the XTS.

    Some people are addicted to the idea of free extra power. Stock it might only be 350hp, but there are guys making 4 bajillion with a simple swap that even I could do! That makes me more awesome than the guy who has to have engine surgery to make more power, haha. --Yes my AAA Membership is paid up, why do you ask?

    These are all low HP compared to the 3.6 DI's runing single and twin turbos already....450-700 hp out of these awesome engines already all over the country.

    Why stop there, let's go with a 4 with 4 turbo chargers and get the same horsepower and sound like a fart going through an empty can? That ought to improve Cadillac's performance image. Smaller is better, right?

    450+hp V6s with factory warranties aren't exactly common.

    No small dispalcement 4-6cyl will ever equal the muscle sound we love in the v8's.....but the DI small displacement engines are the future and not much is going to halt that move.

    Offering tiny engines that have to be blown several times over to make the kind of torque we expect in a high performance car, makes absolutely no sense if they're not getting significantly better gas mileage in the real world. On top of that, all the extra plumbing increases weight and bulk in the engine compartment. High performance enthusiasts will flog these small engines and make them work harder than a comparable V-8. The high performance market is fairly small, so why not continue to offer appropriate engines for that market and save the puny engines for enclosed golf carts and ultralight bare bones race cars?
