The third-generation Cadillac CTS is the best sedan General Motors has ever built. At least, that's what we've been saying so far. It's high praise for a car that hasn't even had a "V" performance variant yet. Apparently, that's going to change next month.

Autoblog reports that they've confirmed the next-generation Cadillac CTS-V — a car whose mules have been bombing around the Nürburgring with some frequency as of late — will debut at the Detroit Auto Show in January.

No word yet on what will be under its hood. Since the outgoing CTS-V had a 556 horsepower supercharged 6.2-liter V8, some are speculating the new car will have a variant of the supercharged V8 in the 650 horsepower 2015 Corvette Z06. A Cadillac CTS with rear-wheel drive and at least 600 horsepower? Yes, please.

The Detroit reveal comes on the heels of the ATS-V's debut at the LA Auto Show last month, and that car looks extremely promising with a 450 horsepower twin-turbo V6. I can't wait to see what its big brother brings to the table.

Once again, though, GM: A wagon version would be much appreciated by all involved.
