Report: Cadillac’s ATS-V could go “north of the 500hp mark” with a 3.2L twin-turbo V6

Automobile reports that the much-anticipated BMW M3 fighter, the Cadillac ATS-V, will utilize a similar version of the brand’s recent twin-turbocharged 3.6L V6. This mill debuted on the all-new 2014 Cadillac CTS Vsport, which also found its way into the XTS.

Though the new engine will displace 3.2L and will be based on the same General Motors High Feature V6 architecture—the same starting point for the 3.6L. The 3.2L is said to also use forced induction, which could result in over 500hp. And GM’s engineers were described to be placing that figure as a firm goal.

Just for comparative purposes, the new 2014 BMW M3 and M4 are said to be good for 430hp. Either way, the compact luxury super sedan battle is heating up.
