Update, 1:15 pm ET: Although I said I’d be surprised if Cadillac rebadged someone else’s engine instead of building its own, that’s exactly what the plan is, at least to begin with. GM President Mark Reuss told Autosport, “We have a signed agreement with a power unit supplier to begin with.” However, it sounds like a Cadillac-designed engine may happen in time, perhaps for the 2026 season. “As we move forward, we bring a lot of our expertise to create things for the future as well,” Reuss said.
