Cadillac announced that the 2014 CTS will receive a new Twin-Turbo V-6 engine bolted to an eight-speed transmission. Set to make its debut later this month at the 2013 New York Auto Show, the new 3.6-liter Twin-Turbo V6 engine will deliver 420 hp (313 kW) and 430 lb.-ft. of torque (583 Nm). According to the official press release, this is the most powerful V6 engine ever from General Motors.
Moreover, GM says that the new engine has 15 percent greater power density than BMW 535i’s turbocharged 3.0L six, which delivers 300 hp (223 kW). Moreover, GM says that its new engine is even better than the BMW 550i’s TwinPower 4.4L V-8, rated at 400 horsepower (298 kW). With the new engine, the 2014 Cadillac CTS is capable to sprint form 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in just 4.6 seconds and has a top speed of 170 mph (274 km/h).
The 2014 Cadillac CTS will also be available with the naturally aspirated 3.6-liter V6 rated at 321 hp, but also with the 2.0-liter turbocharged engine rated at 272 hp.
“The new Cadillac Twin-Turbo brings a new dimension of technologically advanced performance to the all-new 2014 Cadillac CTS sedan,” said David Leone, executive chief engineer. “Delivering power and sophistication, it marks another large step forward in the product-driven expansion of Cadillac.”
