GM North America Vice President of Sales, Service, and Marketing Brent Dewar recently announced on Friday at a press conference in Detroit about a more powerful Cadillac V series for the 2009 model year. All three V models will get significant horsepower increases. The CTS-V will use a 4.6 liter V8 (non supercharged) putting out 420 horsepower. The car will also be lighter than the current model to compete with the BMW M3 and M5 at the same time. The STS-V will use a supercharged 4.6 liter 520 horsepower V8. And the XLR-V will be the fastest GM production car ever built. The engine will use a supercharged 4.6 liter 540 horsepower V8. The car will share the same engine as the STS-V, but it will be slightly tuned to put it above the rest.

Here's a quote from Brent Dewar "We really want to aim for supercars this next time around. The new XLR-V will be second only to project Blue Devil in all of GM history. When the car is unveiled, it will be the fastest production GM car ever built. Expect a 0-60 time in under four seconds for the 2009 XLR-V."

Pricing will increase, but only slightly on all models. All three cars are due out in late 2008 as 2009 models.
