To me, hell no. I'd take a lawn-mower engine if it made 500+ lb feet of torque...Ralph said:Question...(and I'm just curious)
Does it really matter how Cadillac achieves the HP? Whether Corvette engine or DOHC? Aren't the numbers the most important aspect with buyers who want bragging rights?
Great article on the STS-V. The following para caught my eye:
"That’s just the regular stuff. With the performance CTS-V, Cadillac began to excite enthusiasts but knew it needed something more to be a player in the luxury-performance field ruled by the likes of the Mercedes E55 AMG and BMW M5. Cadillac’s plan called for the STS-V to be its high-end player"
I would think that the previous idea of the 520 lb feet of torque motor would be much more "high-end player" than its current powerplant, but perhaps that is just me. I'm also willing to bet that with that motor alone, many people, including CTS-V fans, wouldn't be nearly as critical of the STS-V either...I know I wouldn't be.
