The 2015 Cadillac ATS-V will bow at this year’s Los Angeles Auto Show.

According to a recent report from Car and Driver, both the Cadillac ATS-V and CTS-V models will go on sale next year, with the 2016 Cadillac CTS-V making its debut at next year’s Detroit Auto Show.

The 2015 Cadillac ATS-V has been caught testing by spy photographers and videographers and is expected to be powered by a 3.6-liter twin-turbo V6 engine with around 420 hp and 430 lb-ft of torque. The powerplant will be mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and it’s still unclear whether the American automaker will offer a manual option. The sedan model will be the one debuting in Los Angeles this year with the ATS-V coupe coming at a later date.

As for the 2016 Cadillac CTS-V, expect a version of the company’s supercharged LT4 V8 powering the sports car, which makes 650 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque in the Corvette Z06. It is expected that the luxury model won’t have as much power with Cadillac likely detuning the powerplant to the tune of around 600 hp. An eight-speed automatic transmission, just like the ATS-V, will find its home while a manual transmission is still anyone’s guess.
