2014 Cadillac CTS-V Rumored to Get Turbo or Supercharged Corvette LT1 Engine

Rumor has it that the next-generation Cadillac CTS-V will be powered by a forced-induction V8 engine based on the new Chevrolet Corvette Stingray’s LT1 powerplant.

No final decision has been made yet, but it is believed that the American automaker is currently testing a twin-turbo application and a supercharged one. As for the ATS-V, those enthusiasts will get to enjoy a twin-turbo V6, the same powerplant currently seen in prototypes. The American automaker will also offer an ATS-V with V8 power, possibly at the end of the first-generation ATS-V’s lifecycle.

In other Cadillac-related news, the Omega-platform flagship may have hit a small snag. Rumor has it that General Motors’ cost-cutting methods have surfaced over the vehicle’s door handles. Instead of luxurious $5 a unit ones being used, a cheaper, $1.80 door handle has been substituted instead.
