    Next Cadillac CTS-V to Get Force-Fed LT1 Engine

    We hear that the 2014 Cadillac CTS-V may be powered by a new, force-fed V-8 based on the new Corvette’s LT1 engine. A final decision hasn’t been made, but we’re told GM is working on a twin-turbo design and a supercharged design, and one of them will be featured in the next CTS-V. The engine may also serve in the upcoming rear-drive flagship.

    Speaking of the V-series and forced induction, we’re told the ATS-V is also on track, and we’ve confirmed it will be packing the new twin-turbo V-6 that’s been spotted in prototypes. But V-8 fans shouldn’t despair, because the ATS was designed with room for a V-8 as big as the 7.0-liter Corvette Z06’s; that plan isn’t dead.

    It’s not all good news for future Cadillacs, though. We’re told the rear-drive, Omega-platform flagship sedan may have hit some rough water. Rumor has it GM’s old cost-cutting ways have reared their head in a fight over door handles. Our sources say the flagship was originally designed with S-Class-worthy handles that ran $5 apiece, but the cost-cutters decided to substitute parts that cost $1.80 each.

    This is pretty much what we've known for some time. I look forward to seeing the finished product.

    Sounds interesting, should crack 600hp fairly easily and maybe 700hp in a ZR1/LS9esc application.

    Yeah, we've known this for a long time.

    It is the LT4.

    This can't come soon enough. I LOVE the CTS-Vs, but this year at NAIAS, I spent time in GM's and Mopar's new cars, and when I got to my dream CTS-V wagon the cracks in the armor appeared... ill-fitting trunk panels, dated interior... I am glad to see GM keep up on this car, and only hope to see a new CTS-V with a blown 600+hp LT-1 that will SMOKE the Europeans....

    I am almost more interested in the part of the article that talks about GM going back to real names. Hopefully there is some truth in that and not just made up journalism.

    $5 door handles, plz add it to the car and charge the buyer. Quality cost, you want cheap go some where else. Trust me cheap can turn a buyer off in a heartbeat. Now if you can get the exact look and feel of the $5 with $1.80 and the durability, well that is a no-brainer. Back to the real world spend the cash for good quality!!

    This makes it sound like maybe super or turbo charged though? I would think that aspect is already set in stone for the LT4. I would say it stays supercharged, but not sure if DI tends to change that?

    Supercharged 6.2-liter = LT4

    So what exactly is an s-class worthy handle? If I'm not mistaken aren't the door handles already made of metal in the xts and ats? Hell it's been awhile since I've seen a cts up close, doesn't it have metal handles too? Of course the better question is; how did they even get this information in the first place?

    CTS-V Supercharged/Twin-Turbo V-8
    Makes sense given that the current LSA/LS9 are blown versions of the LS3, so naturally a LTx with a blower or supercharger based on the LT1 could follow. Good news, regardless. I want to push Cadillac to offer V-Series cars with AWD (AWD tuned for the V-Series, mind you). Alpina and AMG are doing it, others will surely follow. Be one of the first to do it rather than wait until everyone else has proven you can. Besides, it's a good way to attack Audi's RS cars which can sell well in northern United States and Canadian regions where snow is prevalent.

    ATS-V Twin-Turbo V-6 ... And V-8?
    So we'll get an ATS-V with the TTV-6 and a ATS-V Plus (of sorts) with a new big V-8 or what was being implied?

    Cadillac Omega Door Handles
    REALLY?! We're fighting over less than $13 in building costs per car on a flagship automobile?

    With 600+ hp and hopefully a competitively efficient way to get it to the rear tires and onto the road, this could be a real winner ... even more so than the Gen II CTS-V.
    2005 CTS-V, LS6, Supercharged, Headers, and lots more. (garage queen)
    2011 Cruze ECO, 1.4T, 6-spd manual. (my DD)
    2012 SRX, 3.6, AWD. (wife's car).

    As for Omega cost cutting...told ya! It's more than door handles too! A certain "savior" in senior management is haggling over things that amount to less than $10/unit.
