Cadillac is preparing the ATS V with 425 HP V6 Turbo

Cadillac can rest assured as it managed to obtain a lot of positive attention thanks to its ATS model and the attention expands towards General Motors as well. Everything started with the release of the sedan, but it continued with the Coupe version which we had the opportunity to see for the first time at the beginning of last week. The carmaker has also prepared different body styles and, let us not forget, the V-version of the model. There have been rumors according to which Cadillac actually developed two V- versions of the model. According to that man there will be a base ATS V equipped with a 3.6-liter V6 unit capable of generating 425 horsepower which can also be found on the CTS V Sport. The other version rumors indicate it exists is the V+ that also comes equipped with a V8 unit, also very powerful. The thing is that there are not a lot of details about this one, so it might just as well not be true. A report revealed by the carmaker indicated that the engineers might offer the model with three options in terms of transmissions: a 7-speed manual, an 8-speed automatic and also a dual-clutch transmission. This last, one, in case you were wondering is not available as a production version. The same report indicated the fact that the future CTS V will not come equipped with supercharged LT4 6.2-liter V8 unit like the Corvette Z06, but under the hood, it will hide a new twin-turbo version of the Corvette LT1 V8, but that will also be offered on the ZR-1, but not in the C7. One thing is for sure, nothing is for sure at the moment, at least not in terms of power train and other elements. We will let you know of future plans as soon as the carmaker will make an official statement on this.
