UPDATE: Johan de Nysschen Answers Questions at Jalopnik

Cadillac head, Johan de Nysschen accepted an invitation to answer questions posed by the readers of Jalopnik.com after last night’s debut of the CT6 during a commercial aired during the Oscars. 

Interesting insights are confirmation that a sub-ATS car is on the way that will also be based on the Alpha platform and be rear and all-wheel drive.  Also revealed is that Cadillac is indeed working on a turbo V-8 that will see duty under the CT6 hood and will top a range of engines that will range from 4-cylinder turbo up to the fire-breathing V-8.  In the power train revelations were that all 4-cylinder options will soon be turbos, marking the end of the 2.5l 4 in the ATS. 

For the whole list of questions and answers, check out the entire session at:

Cadillac Wants a CLA-Fighter

Recently, Cadillac’s new head has been eyeing a car below the current ATS. One that would allow Cadillac to boost sales in the growing entry-level tier of the lux market where cars like the Mercedes CLA, Audi A3.

These cars are based on front-drive platforms which had us having nightmares that Johan de Nysschen might be thinking a Chevy Cruze based Cadillac might be appealing.

However, he is currently looking and taking Cadillac’s Alpha platform down a notch to fill the void. This could give Cadillac a strong differentiator in this space against the German front-drive (often with AWD systems) competition.

“The cost and packaging advantages of front-wheel dive are appealing. But Cadillac is the challenger brand”, explained de Nysschen. “We want to build our reputation as a purveyor of high-performance driver’s cars, so it’s better that we do it off a rear-wheel drive architecture.”

Smaller than ATS and rear-drive? Sounds promising Mr de Nysschen.
