Cadillac to introduce more turbocharged models

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 21, 2012

The Cadillac ATS has attracted many admirers, particularly for its new 272-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine. It is meant to compete with the BMW 3 Series. The SRX, with its 300-hp turbocharged V6, was the last Cadillac to come with a turbocharged engine. The engine had power but it wasn’t very frugal.

It was discontinued after just a year. Cadillac cited sluggish sales. Clay Dean, director of advanced design at Cadillac, attended a Cadillac event at Pebble Beach last weekend. He gave confirmation that Cadillac will offer more turbocharged vehicles. This report coincides with past ideas of a twin-turbocharged V6 being used on Cadillac’s rumored high-performance ATS-V.

This engine is likely to deliver about 400hp, guaranteeing that the 556-hp V8 engine that is used in the CTS-V is still exclusive to that model.

Cadillac had cited the upcoming third-generation CTS during the event. Presently, the CTS’s base engine is a 3.0L V6 that delivers 270-hp. A modification to the same turbocharged-four-cylinder engine used in the ATS would be an upgrade to its power as well as its fuel efficiency, which suggests that it may be available with a turbocharged engine soon.
