    If the CT5-V is a V8, I’d peg it at $75-85 to start. Right now CTS-V starts at around $89K, so as the CT5-V is going to punch one weight class lower, $78k seems about right. That’s still puts it in reach of a heck of a lot more buyers.

    It could be as the CT5-V is going after the M3, that it’ll get the LF4 3.6 TTV6 (from the ATS-V) tuned to around 500HP?

    Pound for pound, that is the best Cadillac ever built IMO.
    My buddy just drove all of the outgoing V’s ( and other Cadillac’s) at a Cadillac ride and drive yesterday.

    Let the CT5-V be the bruiser of the Range, and put the 500HP BLACKWING V8 in the CT4-V.

    There is a short video in their instagram. I can't post it yet, because its in their "stories"... CT4 sounds like a V6, maximum.

    Yep I’m seeing a pattern of brilliant well thought out messaging here.
    It's terrible messaging, but I'm of the opinion that the XT6 was never intended to have Supercruise...they're only adding it now because they were raked over the coals at the initial launch for not having the feature. This explains why you still don't have final pricing available for the first run even though they probably should already be in production if they're supposed to be available mid-2019...which is kinda like right now right?

    If XT6 was going to have SuperCruise at launch...I think they would've mentioned it in the initial press release. Think about it like this, they probably don't have to do much in development, much of the work is going to be on retrofitting the platform to accept the SuperCruise hardware. I'm pretty sure they baked some portability into it when they developed it initially.
    Completely wrong, supercruise needs to be baked into the platform as well as validated by the individual vehicle. You can't just add it on a whim no matter how much you want that to be the case.

    You nor I have no clue as to what it takes to put SC in a vehicle, I highly doubt that C1XX was built w/ a Caddy in mind in the first place. I'm going off what we know publicly...XT6 was introduced w/ no mention of SuperCruise, you would think that the highest piece of tech within the vehicle be mentioned in it's introduction...right? Mary B then comes out and says there will be SC after a big fuss was raised over it not having SC...I'm just putting 2 and 2 together.

    Yes a Cadillac was planned for that platform, the surprising part was how long it took for one. I believe the delay was due to supercruise

    I strongly disagree. This was planned well in advance.
    Actually it's not even as sinister or clever as all of that.. Another site we can't quote was showing a mule that was as aggressive as this a month ago... It wasn't as much negative descent as here
    . Which might have.. Had we not been so in enthralled in almost 30 pages of negative GMI BS.. Been serious course for discussion.. But alas.. Despite various people pointing out that this was a new direction.. A new way of presenting and implementing VSERIES.. some people were just stuck again.. on naming and a supposed free-burn of 15 years of performance.. Never letting up enough to realize, even when told.. even when quotes were left for easy reading and dissemination.. the naysaying persisted. Shaking my damn head. I hope that not only does the CT5 spawn a 500HP version and then a 700HP (cause let's face it.. They are tuning galore these days ) but the recently introduced 355hp V comes out and beats the crap out of competitors with a hundred more HP. Just to spite the GMI Hater Peanut Gallery

    Get out of here with that. . Where do U come up with this stuff? Cadillac just released the info Thurs... The only people that went haywire with insane and basic foolishness were those who wanted these vehicles to fail from git. I WON'T EVEN BRING UP THE PRESS RELEASE SAID THAT MORE TRACK FOCUSED VERSIONS WERE COMING.. on Thursday

    In the other thread I basically said "Ask the man who owns one."
    Gee... you just don't seem all that perturbed by the whole thing.

    What difference does it make what the rest of 'em think, anyway?
    It ain't like they were or are ever gonna sack up and sign on that line.

    Huge!

    It doesn't bother me for a few reason..

    One.. I knew that the more powerful ones were coming. Literally knew it. Factually knew it.

    Two.. What the hell does the introduction of the CT5 V do one way or another for my car? If I was a collector of such.. I should have kept my Gen2 VCoupe. Hell.. This intro is no different than a what Vette owners go thru each generation. VSeries is Cadillac's Vette Brand. (I think that brand is gonna be another argument point for Corvette lovers because of the possible direction of C8 and derivatives)

    Three
    . I have a CTS-V.. not a CT5-V. They went out of their way to make it clear that they were moving away from 1t years of CTS... People want to speak about moving away from 15 years of VSeries but seem to forget that.. New rules. I'm all for it The old direction was cool for me.. But I'd gladly learn another way if it insures the survival of this storied brand

    IMO, the V-Wagon is gonna be The One.
    And no CT4-V or CT5-V is gonna change that.
