At the heart of the 2006 Cadillac XLR-V is the new, 4.4L version of the Northstar engine outfitted

The XLR-V is essentially a Corvette with different body panels and a softer setup
with a positive displacement intercooled supercharger. The Northstar V-8 SC (supercharged), which also powers the Cadillac STS-V, produces 443 horsepower at 6,400 rpm and 414 lb-ft torque at 3,900 rpm. The engine’s power is underscored by its ability to deliver 90 percent of its peak torque between 2,200 and 6,000 rpm. The engine also features variable valve timing, enabling outstanding top-end performance while maintaining the refinement and quality associated with a luxury marque. The engine is mated to the all-new Hydra-Matic 6L80 six-speed automatic transmission.

The 6L80 in the XLR-V is one of the most technologically advanced automatic transmissions in the industry, using clutch-to-clutch operation and an advanced integrated 32-bit transmission controller to deliver smooth, precise shifts. In addition, a wide 6.04:1 overall ratio spread enhances performance and fuel economy.

The 6L80 also incorporates a host of advanced driving enhancement features, including advanced Performance Algorithm Shifting (PAS), Performance Algorithm Liftfoot (PAL), and Driver Shift Control (DSC).

Chassis modifications on the Cadillac XLR-V include larger brakes; recalibrated Magnetic Ride Control (MR); larger front stabilizer bar and the addition of a rear stabilizer bar; stiffer rear lower control arm bushings; larger wheels and tires; a power steering fluid cooler; and a higher-capacity fuel pump.

XLR-V styling modifications impart a bolder character in keeping with its performance capabilities, yet retain an aura of refined elegance. Design refinements include:

• Polished wire mesh upper and lower front grilles, a V-Series signature
•Aggressively sculpted hood that makes room for the supercharger
•New 10-spoke aluminum wheel design with sterling silver finish
•Unique V-Series and Supercharged badging
•Four polished stainless steel exhaust tips
•Black finish brake calipers with machined V-Series logo
•Three exterior color offerings: Infra Red, Black Raven and Light Platinum
•Zingana Wood on the shifter knob, cup holder area, steering wheel, and on portions of the door and center console
•Ebony leather with French stitching on interior components
•Soft, supple leather seats with French stitching and matching perforated suede fabric inserts
•Aluminum accent pieces throughout the interior
