It's about time GM developed a DOHC V8 for the 21st century. I thought part of the plan to elevate Cadillac above the rest of the GM brands was to have exclusive engines? Sharing it with a pickup...

Remember the 5th gen Z/28? Remember how compromised for the street it was to get those amazing ring numbers? See some similarities?

Don't forget Ford led the engineering on the 10 speed. That's why you see more Fords with the 10 speed and more GM's with the FWD 9 speed. GM led the engineering on the 9 speed.

This is something that's been overlooked. The torque advantage of the LT1 is offset by the extra RPMs and and wider power-band of the Coyote. The 10 speed just increases the advantage. I think were...

The simple answer is torque, low-end torque in particular. Also, BMW tends to under promise and over deliver when it comes to performance stats.
