Read more about the Cadillac ATS-V+ rumored to get 7.0-liter V8 at AutoGuide.com.Could the 7-liter V8 engine from the Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 live on in an extra hot Cadillac ATS-V? That’s the latest rumor swirling around with the General’s luxury brand
That information comes from MotorTrend, stating that GM wants to keep working on that hand-made 505-hp mill, and if it was to show up in a Cadillac product, it’d likely be sporting a bit more power.
The ATS-V was designed from the get-go to fit a V8 engine under the hood and the 7-liter LS7 V8 engine is actually lighter than the twin-turbo 3.6-liter V6 that’s used in the ATS-V.
As it stands, the ATS-V makes 464-hp and 445-lb-ft, allowing the car to hit 60 MPH in less than 4 seconds. If Cadillac wants the ATS-V+ to be any faster, that high-revving V8 may be the engine to do it.
