Report: Cadillac ATS-V Coupe to get 3.0L twin-turbo V6

Cadillac CTS-V Coupe

The Cadillac ATS is slowly becoming one of the most anticipated models to come out of Detroit – however, what’s more exciting is news of the Cadillac ATS-V. The Cadillac ATS lineup will enter production sometime in 2012-2013 at GM’s Lansing Grand River assembly plant where it has invested $190 million for the production of the new compact Cadillac model.

Given the success of the Cadillac CTS-V, insiders say that an ATS-V is more than definite to hit U.S. roads. However, it has been long speculated what engine will power the ATS-V. We’ve previously heard that the model will get a 6.2L V8 making 470-hp and 438 lb-ft of torque.

Well, that might not happen. Sources now say that the ATS-V will most likely get a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 making around 380-hp. That should allow a 0 to 60 mph time of less than 5 seconds with a top speed of more than 170 mph.

We really hope Caddy changes its mind.
