    • Hotter Cadillac CT5-V to pair LT4 with manual transmission

      These spyphotos essentially confirm the rumor going around. That rumor being that Cadillac would pair the LT4 V8 with a manual transmission in their hotter CT5-V. What they intend to call it considering they are already using 'V' in the name is a good question.


      Cadillac will have something very unique in a segment dominated by all wheel drive twin turbo V8 and automatic drivetrains.

      Frankly, a manual is exactly what Cadillac should have offered as an option with the LT4 powered CTS-V.

      Better late than never, right? Then again, isn't it time for an LT5 in a Cadillac to really make a splash considering the disarray of the Cadillac brand lately?

        YESSSSS. This will probably tank the value of V3 CTS-Vs honestly. The 8 speed AT is the only real hamstring of the V3.

        With the CT5-V having a 10 speed or manual is perfect.

        Maybe but this thing won't have the looks. At least not from what I've seen.

        Hopefully CTS-V values do come down though. It's a badass sedan that gets overlooked.
