'09 CTS-v

I haven't read it entirely yet, but according to a report in Motor Trend, the "09 CTS-v will have a slightly detuned version of the Corvette Z07 powerplant. Most are saying around 600HP for the Baby Caddy.

BMW 3-series and the MB SLK will really have to step up to keep up.

I love the idea of more American Muscle being put into the American Luxury cars. Go for it Caddy....if you build it, they will come.

I just want to see if they run that motor and keep the price the same. I looked at a 2006 CTS-V when it was new, and it was $51000 basically loaded. If that thing has anywhere over 500HP and costs around $50K, I'll be having a really hard time making the decision. I love the CTS in general.

Didn't I say that GM was gonna come back with a vengenance?

Anyway, I was reading an old issue of MotorTrend...and it had a huge, 3-4 page article on the 2008 CTS...so I'm reading, and reading...and I come aross this incredible detail(though most would consider it small). The front Bumper/Fender? It's gonna be made out of die-cast metal!!!!

I read that single sentance over and over again! I couldn't believe it!

So...I'm thinking, what could this mean for our Car's nose?

the front fender 'vent' near where the fender meets the door is diecast metal. the rest of the fender is steel and the front 'bumper' or fascia is a material similar to the corvette's. and it will not have a LS7 but a supercharged version of the LS3 maybe called the LS8?

"But the naturally aspirated Z06 engine is said to lack enough low-end torque for a car of the Cadillac's weight. The Z06 weighs just over 3200 pounds; the new CTS-v is likely to tip the scales at about 3600."



What is this world coming to when a 470 ft-lb engine doesn't have enough low end for a 3600lb car!?!?

I dunno, but I kinda thought the same thing when I heard that the new vette will get around 650 hp. that works out to roughly 5 lb/hp. isn't 6.5 lb good enough? anything under 10lb/hp is deserving of respect in my books.

BUT if it can be made better for nearly the same price, why not?
