    What’s better than power? More power, obviously. And in a nice little surprise, it turns out the 2016 Cadillac ATS-V has even more power than General Motors initially thought it would. It’s faster, too.

    At first the ATS-V’s 3.6-liter twin-turbo V6 was rated at 455 horsepower and 445 pound-feet of torque. But Cadillac announced today that the engine is SAE-certified at 464 horsepower and 444 pound-feet of torque.

    Now for the speed part: its 0-60 mph time was originally set at 3.9 seconds, but now it’s 3.8 seconds. Top speed has jumped from 185 mph to 189 mph. Incremental increases, sure, but more is always better.

    It also puts the ATS-V coupe and sedan pretty far over its competitors, the BMW M3 and M4, which are rated at 425 horsepower. Still, the Cadillac trails behind the new 2016 Mercedes-AMG C63, which puts out 469 horsepower and 503 horsepower in S trim. Two extra cylinders and more displacement will do that, you know.

    Still, the smallest and lightest V ever looks like it will be a first-rate sport sedan and coupe. We get to drive it next month at Circuit of the Americas. We can’t wait. (And by “we” in those sentences, I mean “I.” But everyone’s excited about it.)

    Exactly my thoughts. US producers are really starting to go for the European models in a big way.

    If you want the Auto its going to cost you, and extra $2,000 extra. I just dont understand why it is more in the ATS-V and less in the Corvette?
