Check out my profile, and you'll understand why I'm so sure.How are you so sure? Also - do you feel the ATS-V might get it? Or are they going to continue missing certain marks like they do with the power in the non-V CTS?
Hardly do i fail to understand. My response was strictly to the quote of 350 HP. with M3 at 414+- HP.^ Reading comprehension fail. It's a rumor. It could be more, it could be less. Wait and see.
Well certainly aint gonna beat the M3:bigroll:

Hence my response. I don't think there was any mis-comprehension at all:hmm:
GM has stated that cars will either get a V or a Platinum, but not both.Although I could not imagine Cadillac putting the same engine as the CTS V in the smaller ATS V. I would think at least 400 HP to compete with the M3....with all things being equal as far as power to weight. Although i seem to have read in this month's Motor Trend the 300 lb heavier, 100 HP less Porche 911 spanked the ZR1 in the 1320 :suspense: So the you are correct in saying less power doesn't necessarily mean it cant be faster.
Hmm...So what next for the XTS? a V series with a small liter high revving 600+ twin turbo, AWD, with a state of the art 7 speed dual clutch Auto that just rocks the competition and sips gas at 15/18 MPG.:yup:
Cadillac needs to hit a homerun with the ATS. This cannot be some bloated, underpowered whale (see SRX). Love to see an all out effort to get weight out of this car. The German competitors are already using aluminum in suspension components and are doing a good job powering their cars for both performance and economy. If we are going to compete with the 3 series, we need to do so from the get go, not on the refresh three years later.
