about this? I thought only the 6-speed was offered initially.

As I understand it, the 2004 CTS powertrain lineup looks like this:

3.2 V6 - 5 speed maual

3.6 VVT V6 - 5 speed auto

5.7 LS6 V8 - CTSV only, 6 speed manual only.

In 2005, the 3.2 V6 should disappear, taking with it the 5 speed manual. In it's place, you will be able to get the 3.6 V6 with a 6 speed maunal.

If they do offer the CTS-V with an automatic, it would be fine because like the current Corvette and the late, great Camaro/Firebird, the V8 has so much power that the automatic wouldn't slow it down at all, it would just help you launch the car from a stop.

The LS6 has plenty of torque and would work as well with an automatic as it does with a manual.

The general has an automatic that can bolt up - the 4L60E that's in several products, including the new C6 Corvette - which has the new LS2 6.0 liter engine with 400 hp and 400 lb/ft of torque and a 6500rpm redline.
