Don’t expect the full 700hp output. According to Motor Trend, the Caddy will run a detuned version with roughly 600hp on tap. This is still significantly higher than any of its rivals, including super-sedans like the 507hp BMW M5 and Mercedes E63.
In naturally aspirated form, the LS7 V8 already produces a substantial 505hp but the engine is said to be lacking enough low-end grunt to give that off-the-line shove. In addition to the new powerplant, engineers will also be adding uprated springs and shocks, larger Brembo brakes, a quicker steering ratio, widened fenders and a sports bodykit.
