A Twin Turbo 420 hp V-6 Cadillac Motor for the CTS/XTS

That's right, Cadillac is at it again.  This time with a V-6 3.6 liter twin turbocharged motor. This bad boy is the first 420 hp V-6 that General Motors has ever produced for production.  The powerful V-6 will be backed up against a eight-speed automatic transmission designed to help with an already pretty fuel efficient motor. This combination along with 430 foot-pounds of torque will be able to lead a Cadillac to a quick 0-60 mph time in 4.6 seconds and is capable of reaching 170 mph.

The 2014 CTS/XTS are both expected to receive the motor, the XTS was supposed to receive a V-8, but Cadillac announced due to the great success of the twin-turbo V-6, the XTS will not be receiving the V-8 treatment.

Not to much is leaked about the new Cadillac engine, but here are some things that we do know about it:

  • All-new cylinder block casting
  • All-new cylinder head castings
  • Strengthened connecting rods
  • Machined, domed aluminum pistons with top steel ring carrier for greater strength
  • 10.2:1 compression ratio
  • Patented, integrated charge air cooler system with low-volume air ducts
  • Two turbochargers produce more than 12 pounds of boost (80 kPa)
  • Vacuum-actuated wastegates with electronic control valves
  • All-new direct injection fuel system
  • Tuned air inlet and outlet resonators, aluminum cam covers and other features that contribute to exceptional quietness and smoothness.
Combining luxury and power, Cadillac adds one more awesome piece of equipment to their already powerful arsenal.
