What Priddy Says: In addition to the design cues, which indicate that this MINI is faster than most—the hood scoop, more aggressive fascias, sportier wheels and center-mount dual exhaust—Priddy says that hiding under the hood is the 208hp, 1.6L turbocharged four-cylinder.

What Priddy Says: Under the hood will be the new 6.4L V8 Hemi pumping out 465 hp and 465 lb.-ft. of torque. It should be mated to a five-speed automatic but offer paddle shifters.

What Priddy Says: Ford has not been secretive about adding more power to the Taurus SHO, so Priddy expects a more potent version of the 3.5L Ecoboost lurking in this prototype.

Cadillac ATS

Cadillac ATS
When It Hits: Production for the ATS sedan is set to start in July of 2012, followed by the coupe in 2013.
Cadillac ATS
What Priddy Says: Intended to be a true competitor to the BMW 3-Series, the Cadillac ATS will ride on GM’s new rear-drive Alpha chassis and will be powered by the automaker’s 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder. The 3.0L V6 or the 3.6L V6 (or maybe both) should also find its way into the ATS.
