Seems much more "daring" to offer a line topping luxury sedan with a V6!:D

Hope your right about the "3" engine option. I'll be the NY auto show and can't wait to see it in person.

Just because the article says two V6s will be availble doesn't mean no V8s will. Calm your tits.

According to auto week the TwinTurbo V6 will be the top tier engine in CT 6. But I hope in New York they prove auto week wrong as this new groundbreaking car ultimately has the same engine as CTS. Of course the TwinTurbo V6 is a incredible engine with 400 hp but I along with many car enthusiasts we're hoping to see a brand-new V-8 for Cadillac.

Hard to image Cadillac without a V8. Some things are just meant to be.

I'm glad that the modern version of cylinder deactivation works a little smoother than the old 8-6-4 from the 80's.

All this whining about the lack of a V-8 for Cadillac's "new car" seems rather silly considering that the whether it be a V-6 or V-8 with multi turbos and the ability to reduce its active cylinder numbers or automatically shut off when the comes to standstill all this tech are solutions that only extend the life of a moribund automotive power source. Let's face it hydrogen fuel cell technology is really the future of the motive force in cars.

Iteration of a technology that will be going the way of the horse within a decade hardly exemplifies "daring to be different."

There will be a considerable market for loud, high powered, tunable vehicles. Carmakers selling only the most environmentally friendly and energy efficient cars possible is a very long way off. More hubrid/electric/fuel cell offerings in the next decade? Definitely. Gasoline powered cars owing phased out in the next decade? No.

It seems that the farther the makers go toward high powered, highly efficient engines, the less the "tunability" there is with these engines. There will be an enthusiast market for piston engines in the future, just as there is for wooden boats and horses, but I doubt within the near future cars powered by today's technology will be mainstream.

Moribund (great word by the way) automotive power source, no. Finite, yes.
Hydrogen cell technology still has a long ways to go before it may be practical and widespread.
Gas powered internal combustion vehicles will still be traveling America's highways after you're gone, and maybe me too.

Nice try... Fact is they don't have the new V8 ready and I'm sure the CT7 will get it. If BMW , Audi and MB all have a V8 option then Cadillac must as well. Your right about fuel cell technology but that's still many years into the future.

I am surprised that General MOTORS couldn't get a V8 cooked up in time for this launch.

Fact?

What fact? All I see is heresay.

Also, these are engines, not motors. :)
