All of the small info that has been put out from GM is that lead us to believe there will be SUVs wearing the V-Series badges for the first time. Especially with the VSport trim being dropped. Iíd go out on a limb and say we wonít see a V version of the XT5 or XT6. Iíd expect the XT4, XT7 and Slade wearing V badges. In a recent interview a engineer working on the CT5 lumped in the possibility of a V version and manual transmission together so of course having a manual in both the CT4 and CT5 would certainly separate themselves from the competition. With the CT5 being cheaper the next gen 6.2 would fit perfectly. The 3.0TT would work with beefed up internals for the XT4 and CT4.
BlackWing V8: CT6, Slade and XT7
New NA V8: CT5
3.0TT: XT4 and CT4
