So went and Test drove a ATS and a CTS wagon. I was not impressed
with either car. The ATS felt exactly like the 2010 Rx350 traded on the
335. I did not like the torque steer or the rear blind spots. ATS was
almost a copy of the RX. Quality wise felt Cadillac was still below Lexus.

On the CTS sport Wagon, was rear drive a plus. Just did not say
Cadillac. Have found out not going to be a 2014 CTS Wagon so
Caddy is out of the running. Remember the Big Caddy of years pass,
the luxury car to have, not now. Motor had a very high pitch V6 sound.

Its down to X3 X5 or a Range Rover
You drove an SRX, not ATS. They have no almost relation besides being made by Cadillac and having a 3.6 V6.

Its either that or the new LT1. I'd bet on the 3.6 TT.

I would too, highly doubt they put a V8 like that in a heavy car. Gas mileage would be way worse than the Vette

The LT1 is 30 lb. heavier than the LS3.

Though with it making about 470 HP, I'm kinda sad it won't be going into the ATS-V. Unless the ATS-V's version of the TT 3.6 V6 makes significantly more than 420 HP, would rather have the LT1 in the ATS-V. Can't imagine the fuel economy being that much better with the TT 3.6 vs the LT1( since the LT1 uses about 12-18% less fuel than the LS3).

I do no think you mean what you think you mean.
