True enough. But, this is also suppose to be a statement car. Cadillac has in developement a v12 that will be in the Escalade in 06 and they have shown off a v16 as well as a super car. While it is only rumor, it is believed that those engines are going to fined there way into cars. Cadillac wants a performance division with the V series, so if you are going that route, you have to go big.
