Now that the Cadillac ATS coupe has been officially unveiled at the North American International Auto Show earlier this week in Detroit, Motor Trend Magazine is reporting that the ATS-V will be powered by Cadillac's twin-turbo 3.6-liter V6 putting out approximately 425 hp. All that power will be put to the ground by a seven-speed manual gearbox option.

What's even more interesting is that they claim Cadillac has plans for an ATS-V+ powered by a more powerful V8 engine. Is it possible that this V8 engine could be a de-tuned version of the new 625+ hp LT4 engine found under the 2015 Corvette Z06's hood?

Motor Trend is confident however that the Cadillac CTS-V will not get the Z06 Corvette's LT4 engine and will instead be powered by a new twin-turbo version of the Corvette's LT1 V8 engine.

Along with these new engines for Cadillac's road-rockets, a new seven-speed manual, eight-speed automatic and a dual-clutch transmission are all on the planning board.

It looks like Cadillac clearly plans to kick BMW squarely in the teeth!
